I have a switch network with a vtp domain and vlans.
The edge switches are cisco 2960.
The PCs get ips through a DHCP server.
I also have the list of MAC addresses of the PCs.
My question is, Is there a way that I can trace from the switch the exact switch port to wich a perticular PC is connected without tracing the cables physically.
I tried "show mac-address-table"
But It gives the mac addresses it has learned from uplinks only.
Please advise me.
A switch learns the MAC addresses of each device that is connected to one of its ports by examining the source MAC address of the packets being received from the device when it first starts sending data. The switch dynamically learns the address and enters it into CAM.
Have each PC send traffic, if they haven't already.
