getting error %RTD-1-ADDR_FLAP

Have two 3548xl switches connected together with two 100mb links using port group (Port channel for ios) We are seeing this error on one of the connections. We are also seeing it on the router connection.

Re: getting error %RTD-1-ADDR_FLAP

This error message signifies that a MAC address is moving consistently between different ports. This error message is

only applicable on the Catalyst 2900XL and 3500XL switches. The error message may indicate that two or more HSRP

routers have become active. However, the error message may indicate where an STP loop, duplicated frames, or

reflected packets are being sourced.

To gather further information about the error message, run the following debug:

switch#debug ethernet-controller address

The ports referenced in the debug are off by one (that is, port 0 is fastethernet0/1). The above error messages indicate a

MAC address is flapping between ports 5 and 34 on the respective switch.

Note: The message, RTD-1-ADDR_FLAP, may not be correct. Review the following bugs to rule out this possibility. See

the Tools Information section for more information.

CSCdp81680: Incorrect RTD-1-ADDR_FLAP message

CSCds27100/CSCdr30113: Fastetherchannel Issues causing RTD-1-ADDR_FLAP

The most common cause for MAC addresses moving around is Spanning-Tree Problems or Physical Layer Problems.

When troubleshooting this error message, follow the steps outlined below and also in the HSRP Troubleshooting Modules

section of this document:

1.Determine the correct source (port) of the host MAC address.

2.Disconnect the port that should not be sourcing the host MAC address.

3.Document the STP topology on a per VLAN basis and check for STP failure.

4.Verify port-channeling configuration. An incorrect port-channel configuration may result in the host MAC

address flapping error messages, due to the load-balancing nature of port-channeling.
