%C4K_EBM-4-HOSTFLAPPING: Host 00:50:56:B6:10:0A in vlan 102 is moving from port Gi4/2 to port Gi4/39
It occurs fairly often and not with just these two ports. I traced cables and the ports mentioned in log message run into the same ESX Host server. I haven't had a chance to touch base with my Server guy yet, but I'd assume those ports are in the same network. Would I be correct in my assumption? Has anyone had this issue before? I'm assuming this is a problem with how the ESX host is configured?
Output interpretter suggests a spanning-tree loop:
C4K_EBM-4-HOSTFLAPPING (x1):Host [mac-addr] in vlan [dec] is flapping between port [char] and port [char]
Explanation: The specified host is detected as a source address on multiple ports. Typically, a host is supposed to be learned on only one port. A spanning tree loop is the most common cause of this condition. All traffic from the specified host is temporarily dropped. After 15 seconds, forwarding is reenabled. If the problem persists, the traffic from the problem host continues to be dropped indefinitely.
Recommended Action: Make sure that spanning tree is enabled to prevent spanning tree loops. If you have spanning tree disabled, make sure that you have no spanning tree loops in your network.
I did some more digging. Looks like we need to use LACP. WHen I configure the channel-group # on the switch, that's only significant to the switch correct? For example, if i configure channel-group 6 on the switch, the server doesn't need to match that right?
