We have several HP printers the repeatedly loose their IP address. They are models 8000N and 8150N.
I don't see any logs messages indicating that they are loosing their connection to the switch. I don't see any interface errors. We have tried several variations of autonegotiaion and hard coding speed/duplex to no avail. What is even stranger is that they seem to regain their address and start printing after a short while, usually between 10 and 40 minutes.
The switches they connect to are 6509E's running 12.2(18)SXF7.
The only problem I can find on the switches is that I get this log message "%PORT_SECURITY-SP-2-INELIGIBLE: Port security configuration on Gi3/44 is being made inactive since the port is now not eligible for port security as GigabitEthernet3/44 has static MAC entry configuration.. "
I'm a bit baffeled by that since I don't see any conflict in my configuration that should affect port security. Here is what a typical interface configuration looks like:
switchport access vlan 5
switchport mode access
switchport port-security aging time 5
switchport port-security aging type inactivity
no ip address
no cdp enable
spanning-tree bpduguard enable
Of course, some of the interfaces have the speed/duplex hard coded on them as we try to nail now the cause of the problem.
I'm just about out of ideas. Help!
