Strange mac address with prefix 0C:CC:01 & 0C:CC:01

I found that my C4507 switch has received huge of HOSTFLAPPING with the prefix 0C:CC:01 & 0C:CC:01 :

C4507#show log

Anyone know what is the meaning of these MAC addresses? I can't find the manufacturer for this prefix from web, please help..

Re: Strange mac address with prefix 0C:CC:01 & 0C:CC:01

MAC address prefix 0C-CC-01 doesn't exist. The MAC address most likely belongs to a server with dual nics and not configured properly. You will need to trace this mac address all the way down to the switchport so you can take necessary actions.

"We have the same issue every now an again. I can almost guarantee you

that the individual is using a NIC with a Marvel Yukon chipset. For some

reason the NIC advertises this second "rogue" MAC every now and again. "

A simple driver upgrade should fix the problem.

Re: Strange mac address with prefix 0C:CC:01 & 0C:CC:01

Thanks, leolaohoo. I have traced these mac addresses down to switchport, and the 3750-1 & 3750-2 are both connecting to the previous C4507, but I find the following strange result, please take a look:

3750-1#show mac-address-table

Mac Address Table

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

Vlan Mac Address Type Ports

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

10 0ccc.0100.0ccc DYNAMIC Gi1/0/8 <= connecting to C4507

10 0c00.0100.0c00 DYNAMIC Gi1/0/8 <= connecting to C4507

3750-2#show mac-address-table

Mac Address Table

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

Vlan Mac Address Type Ports

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

10 0ccc.0100.0ccc DYNAMIC Fa1/0/1 <= connecting to Loadbalancer

10 0c00.0100.0c00 DYNAMIC Fa1/0/1 <= connecting to Loadbalancer

It seems the MAC addresses is sourced by the Loadbalancer, but it also showed in 3750-1 which is from C4507. I have checked the span-tree for that vlan, it seems there is no loop and works normal in the vlan...
