I;m not sure if this is the correct place to post this question, bu here goes.
The network is made of Avaya 5510 & 20 , we have two RFS7K's running Wing 5.8.5.
So while looking at a wireshark trace on the network We can see the following MAC 00-15-70-38-0A-FA on the Avaya5520 that the RFS_backup is connected to the MAC of the RFS_Backup is 00-15-70-38-0A-F9 so it not the Backup unit, the Primary_Units MAC is
00-15-70-81-BE-8E so its not that.
this is what is listed on the Avaya - Port enabled
"00-15-70-38-0A-F9 1 Unit:1 Port:43 00-15-70-38-0A-FA 1 Unit:1 Port:43"
I ran the show mac-table-table on the RFS_Backup but the MAC in question does not show
00-15-70-38-0A-FA ( This is a Zebra device )
I ran the same command on the Primary_RFS and this does not show the MAC in Question.
So On the Avaya 5520 where the RFS_Backup is plugged in, I disabled the port and ran the sh mac-address-table
the MAC in question still shows,
We are seeing a Topology change where the MAC shows up

between the .88 and Mez there is a wireless Bridge using the AP7532 seup as mesh point, the AP on the Mez is the root bridge and the remote end is non root bridge
