"show mac-address-table" and dot1dTpFdbAddress are different
Hi, I'm snmpwalk'ing dot1dTpFdbAddress on my Catalyst 3524 to retrieve its MAC address table, but it doesn't seem to give me all MAC addresses... Some MAC addresses, that I can see when I do "show mac-address-table", are missing from the output of snmpwalk. Please help. Tatsuo
I'll try and demonstrate the problem here. Below, "show mac-address-table" gives me the following two MAC addresses on FastEthernet0/8:
0006.296f.77c4 Dynamic 103 FastEthernet0/8
0006.298f.2e6b Dynamic 103 FastEthernet0/8
However, I can't find these MAC addresses when I do the snmpwalk (below).
Dynamic Address Count: 39
Secure Address Count: 0
Static Address (User-defined) Count: 0
System Self Address Count: 52
Total MAC addresses: 91
Maximum MAC addresses: 8192
Non-static Address Table:

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
