Hello InternetB,

i) not enough clear

however SIPs are modules that can be installed on C7600.

So check with sh module if there is a SIP module (they are the ones that support SPAs) installed

See the following example from a C7606 with a SIP

sh module

Mod Ports Card Type Model Serial No.

--- ----- -------------------------------------- ------------------ -----------

1 24 CEF720 24 port 1000mb SFP WS-X6724-SFP SAL1049A78R

2 48 CEF720 48 port 10/100/1000mb Ethernet WS-X6748-GE-TX SAL10436CED

3 0 4-subslot SPA Interface Processor-400 7600-SIP-400 JAB104802PV

6 2 Supervisor Engine 720 (Active) WS-SUP720-3BXL SAL10467RED

Mod MAC addresses Hw Fw Sw Status

6 MSFC3 Daughterboard WS-SUP720 SAL10467UYH 2.5 Ok

ii) it cannot it can just notify that a MAC address is flapping between two ports: this can be a sign of a loop or of a server with NIC teaming

iii) sh mac-address-table count

example:

sh mac-address-table count

MAC Entries for all vlans :

Dynamic Address Count: 83

Static Address (User-defined) Count: 299

Total MAC Addresses In Use: 382

Total MAC Addresses Available: 65536

this is from a 7606

Hope to help

Giuseppe
