I have CE-500. There are users which have IP phones with atached desktop PCs. So their ports have role Desktop+IP phone. Security is set to low, so for each port there can be 3 MAC addresses.

Some users are running VMWare which creating additional MAC addresses at this port. CE-500 after some time generates error message about attack and dissables that new MAC addresses to access network.

But I did not find way how to disable MAC address count check.

I tried to change role of this port but none other than Desktop+IP phone has voice vlan settins.

Does anyone know how to solve it?

Why do you want to disable MAC address count?. It is a security feature in this. If you want some more mac addresses, then in crease swirchport port-security maximum .

Or else, I would suggest you to provide static Mac address allocation to that port.
