see normally ethernet port has one mac address, so if i will have layer 2 switch with 24 port then all 24 port have different mac address?
and what about the layer3 switch, so when we issue the no switchport command on switch interface then it will become layer 3 port then it need MAC address so if i will use all 24 port as layer 3 port then each port should have unique MAC address righ?
so i am little bit confuse about MAC addreess for the port?
As far as i can remember, the per VLAN BID was only Bridge Priority + MAC address --> The problem was that most of the platforms supported only 64 or 1024 MAC addresses per switch --> can only address 64 VLAN BIDs (not the whole 4096 VLANs if using dot1q), and thus more MAC addresses were added to the switch to extend the support of more VLANs.
I guess that i've answered in a misleading way, the above post of mine concerns the Layer 2 switches (thus a layer 2 switch needs many MACs), and as for the layer 3 switch each port has 1 MAC address assigned to it (as if a router Ethernet interface).
