There is a problem with adding some random client's macs in fdb table on extreme x450a-24x firmware version 220.127.116.11.
I see this macs on previous switches, clients get ip by DHCP, but when I do
show fdb 11:11:11:11:11:11 - I don't see this mac (for exemple) in fdb table. Extreme switch works also as gateway for clients and iparp record is absent.
BUT, when I do
clear fdb vlan VlanClient1
show fdb 11:11:11:11:11:11
I see this mac on switch. Also appears record in iparp table.
Number of all macs is near 4200-4300
I can't add those MACs, I get error:
pgs # create fdb f4:f2:6d:83:25:c9 vlan Vlan-1414 ports 3
Error: Unable to create static entry for MAC f4:f2:6d:83:25:c9
But if I add another mac for this vlan and port - all is good :
pgs # create fdb f4:f2:6d:83:25:10 vlan Vlan-1414 ports 3
* pgs #
I get no errors
In release note for patch1-14 I found this text:
"MAC Address Hash
The hash algorithm used for the L2 MAC hash table has been improved so that more MAC addresses can be inserted prior to filling the hash bucket. This feature applies only to the Summit X670, BlackDiamond 8900- 40G6Xc, and BlackDiamond X8 series switches."
Our model x450a-24x is not in the list. And We don't now or it is there any reason to
