Hi,

you can bring the ARP timeout and the forwarding table-aging time close to each other.

Hey,

tried everything in this case. Everyhing wents OK after removing switchport block unicast from that interface, which has the mac. Maybe the switchport block unicast should be applied on access instead of trunk?

Hi,

Are you sure that your network doesn't suffer of Asymmetric routing?

Recently, I have written a tutorial about this problem:
