4400 WLC - Same MAC on different interfaces ????????

This can't be right. Why is it that a 4400 controller advertises the same MAC address on multiple interfaces. It is confusing the hell out of the layer-3 switch it is trunked to. Here is the ARP table from the switch.... As you can see MAC 0018.ba49.af47 shows up on VLAN 352 and 353. What gives ????

Protocol Address Age (min) Hardware Addr Type Interface

Internet 69.74.38.49 - 0014.6abc.3ac1 ARPA Vlan351

Re: 4400 WLC - Same MAC on different interfaces ????????

If 1 of your controller port has dynamic interfaces, they will be seen as the same MAC address on the switch... not really an issue on our system... what problem does it create on yours?

Re: 4400 WLC - Same MAC on different interfaces ????????

I turned on ARP debugging on the layer3 switch that the 4402 is attached to via LAG.

I get these errors in the log....

-----------------------------------------

The 192.168.200.x addresses belong to VLAN 353. The management interface is on VLAN 352. So why is the management interface sending ARP requests for dynamic interfaces?
