Mac-Address-Table // ARP Problem

Hi There,

We've 5406zl switches and got problems 'cause we've connected a Hyper-V node on two ports and when one of this ports fallen, the other one takes a lot of time 'to learn' the MAC and we can't be so long disconnected.

In a CISCO 3700 I've solved the problem with the command :

mac-address-table static mac_address vlan vlan-id {drop | interface {type slot/port} | port-channel number} [auto-learn].


For Example:

mac-address-table static AAAA.AAAA.AAAA vlan 10 interface Fe1/0/10
mac-address-table static BBBB.BBBB.BBBB vlan 10 interface Fe1/0/10
mac-address-table static AAAA.AAAA.AAAA vlan 10 interface Fe1/0/11
mac-address-table static BBBB.BBBB.BBBB vlan 10 interface Fe1/0/11

In the HP Procurve, only we've lockdown with static-mac command ONE MAC to ONE PORT:

static-mac AAAAAAAAAAAA interface a18 vlan 176
static-mac BBBBBBBBBBBB interface a18 vlan 176

But when we try to lockdown the same MAC AAAAAAAAAAAAA to a new port (i.e. a19) it's added OK to a19 port, but it's delete from a18.

Any solution? Any idea how I can translate the CISCO command to HP Procurve?

Many many thanks in advance.

Afaik there are no such feature in your switch. You can read more about the static-mac command in the Port Security chapter. Perhaps there is something else you could try, like STP or trunking the ports into one logical port.
