How to known mac address in one lan900

Hi,

I want to know the mac address of all the interfaces of one lan900.
When I do
# lanscan -q
900 0 2
And if I do:
# lanscan
LinkAgg0 0x0019BBEB2E40 900 UP lan900 snap900 11 ETHER Yes 119

and if I do:

#ifconfig lan900
lan900: flags=8000000000001843
inet 14.5.11.82 netmask ffffffe0 broadcast 14.25.111.95
#arp -a

14.5.11.65 (14.5.11.65) at 0:16:47:a2:94:5e ether

When I put arp -a, the mac address is not the same...What is it this mac? and How could I known the mac of lan0 and lan2, because I only have one mac (0x0019BBEB2E40).

Thanks a lot of,
Carmen.

Hi,

U can check mac addrees as follows,
# lanscan -a
is showing MAC address only,
# lanscan -v
gives a lot of information.
see
# man lanscan

Hi,

U can check mac addrees as follows,
# lanscan |awk '{print $2}'|grep -v Station|grep -v Address

As for example the above command displayed the mac address in HEX again ie 0x00108303390F..

Hi,

A MAC address *IS* HEX. Always.
You will never find a MAC address that is not hex. The only difference you will see is upper-case versus lower case, and differences in the seperator(s)

0x0019BBEB2E40 =00.19.BB.EB.2E.40

Do a lanadmin -g 0 and lanadmin -g 2. In that, station address is called MAC address for that particular interface.

Carmen,

If you are using 11.31 use # nwmgr to see the mac address:, else lansacn can be use.

Cheers,
