Same secure MAC acddresses on multiple ports

Hi,

I am trying to configure port security on a CatOS switch in such a way that only 4 MAC addresses can access the port. I need to replicate this config to another port on this switch.

When trying to do this I get an error message basically saying that this MAC address has already been configured for the following port. How can I get around this?

Also is there a command to copy a config of a port in catOS?

Thanks.

Re: Same secure MAC acddresses on multiple ports

Hi Sabir,

I'm afraid it's not supported to have the same secure MAC address on multiple ports. I suggest to configure the secure MAC address with the auto-configure option.

If the host moves from one port to another, the link down event on the previous port would

flush the MAC address secured and allow the same MAC to get secured on another port.

Please see:

For more details.

HTH,
