when I normally need to trace a server connect to a switch, I trace from core > distribution > access.
1. Ping server
2. sh arp | inc ip_address
3. sh mac-add | inc 0000:0000:0000
Question is why do I normally get to the access switch, I do same squeence and I will not see it in the arp. But I use back the MAC I found intially and
sh mac-add | inc mac_add
I would find the port ? Why at access level the arp is not showing ?
Hopefully this is not to stupid question.
