duplicate CUT and UT endhosts entry report

He Experts,

I got two entrys for my LMS 2.6 server in UT on difference switches. Fact is the server is connected to Switch vre-6-neuulm-RZ11-deu Port Fa0/2 and never before on Switch dit-6-neuulm-01-ras-deu.

Is that a arp problem of this switch based on bug of IOS, we have problems with this switch arp entry, or with LMS ?

Danke Gruss Steffen

Re: duplicate CUT and UT endhosts entry report

Not sure if those devices learn MAC addresses, but you certainly shouldn't see another duplicate appear on that port with nothing connected to it. Go ahead and delete the dup entry from UT, and it should not come back.

Re: duplicate CUT and UT endhosts entry report

Well, the code on this switch is very old, and known to be problematic. However, UT isn't typically going to make stuff up. If it said the MAC appeared on Fa0/12 on 2/18/2008, then it probably did. Something we do see from time to time is with certain network topologies, UT will report end hosts connected to uplink ports on switches. So, if this dit-6-neuulm-01-ras-deu switch's port Fa0/12 is an uplink port which is not trunking, and does not have a CDP neighbor that appears on the Campus Topology Map, then UT will not be able to tell that a MAC address which is learned on this port is not actually connected to this port.

Without seeing the full config on this switch, the show cdp neighbor output, or a debug log from when UT last found this MAC, I cannot be certain this is what you're seeing, but the symptoms fit.

Fa0/12 isnt a uplink port cdp is not enable on this switch I add it as seed to lms and the mac address of 10.224.44.12 was never connected on that switch.

But what does connect to that port? Any other switch or bridge that may have learned that MAC could cause an entry to be learned in this 3500XL. The fact that this port isn't trunking and doesn't have CDP enabled makes it a prime candidate for what you are seeing.

Re: duplicate CUT and UT endhosts entry report

right now nothing is connected, int and protocol are down

couple days ago 3 days it was a bluecoat proxy connected but we have trouble with this box also and connected it now inside of our DMZ

He Clarke,

I learn that the bluecoat proxys working as a bridge. Yes I will delete the wrong entry in UT and I go forward to upgrade the IOS on that switch.

Cool Danke Gruss Steffen
