The best way is to use the compass tool within ExtremeManagement.  It searches quite a few different MIBs to track it down.  The most helpful is the node alias table. On N/S/K series turning on the moveaddrtrap may also be helpful if you are trying to follow a moving mac address.

Hello Mandar,

To expand on Dan's feedback you can check the local switch nodealias table on a N/S/K or 7100 using the show nodealias command.  However this is limited to the local switch where Extreme Management's Compass tool can search multiple switches at once.

The command on the N/S/K and 7100 series is "show nodealias mac <mac_address>"
