You can refer to this configuration from Cisco doc. There are a few ways to do this. Is your switch running layer-3? If it is, then you can review the arp table on the switch for duplicate entries. You can also turn on ip tracking on the switch and then go through that data. You will need to enable ip tracking first: ip device tracking You can then use: show ip device tracking all. Instead of using all you can enter an interface or an ip address to show these commands. As GeorgeB mentioned you could look at the log on the switch with the "show log" command in privilege mode, or I believe if you did the "show arp" command from the mode you should be able to see all of the connected devices, their MAC address, and their IP address in the results.

Cisco ACI in Telecom Data Centers White Paper
East-west traffic security breaches are happening every day. According to Cisco, 75 percent of all attacks take only minutes to begin stealing data but take longer to detect. Once discovered, several weeks may pass before full containment and remediation are achieved. Network segmentation is a proven tool deployed in data centers.
Figure 1. It uses an application-aware construct called End-Point Group EPG that allows application designers to define the group of endpoints that belong to the EPG regardless of their IP address or the subnet they belong to Figure 1. Further, the endpoint can be a physical server, a virtual machine, a Linux container or even legacy mainframes — i. ACI micro-segmentation allows users to create micro-segments across multiple VMM and physical domains in a consistent policy driven framework, that allows operational flexibility and choice for customers.
Cisco ACI micro-segmentation can provide enhanced security for east-west traffic within the data center. Its true value lies in its integration with application design and holistic network policy, and transparent interoperability with a wide variety of hypervisors, bare-metal servers, Layer 4 through 7 devices, and orchestration platforms.
I have a question about the micro segmentation. Is that possible do you think or is that no the way it works? Besides the above question. Nick, Yes, that is possible. Key Benefits ACI micro-segmentation allows users to create micro-segments across multiple VMM and physical domains in a consistent policy driven framework, that allows operational flexibility and choice for customers. Micro-segmentation for any multi-tiered application with physical or virtual workloads across any hypervisors Use the same policy model to isolate workloads for vSphere, Hyper-V, OpenStack, Containers, and bare metal servers.
Micro-segmentation classification can use workload attributes such as Virtual-machine attributes and Network IP, MAC attributes providing finer grained control at the individual virtual machine s level. Hypervisor agnostic Intra-EPG isolation policy across VMs and bare metal Simple, automatic creation of a quarantine security zone for a multi-tiered application when a rogue end point or threat is identified and automated remediation.

With unprecedented growth in mobile subscribers and Internet traffic because of social media, video demands, and online applications, these datacenters demand consistent low latency, faster convergence, dual-stack connectivity, multispeed interfaces, high bandwidth, and a very high degree of redundancy.
Telco data centers typically host different types of servers and services, such as:. Applications hosted in these data centers have a mixed environment. Some applications are hosted on custom physical appliances, while others are hosted on virtual servers. Applications on virtual servers have different hypervisor requirements.
Newer applications are delivered through micro-services architecture and need container support. To support all of these requirements, the data center fabric is expected to support both physical and virtual environments, and should be able to integrate with multiple hypervisors and containers.
Figure 1, below, illustrates the landscape of telco data centers. Typically, telecom operators build data centers at central and edge locations, but due to increasing demands, and to provide better experiences to subscribers, some services are moving to aggregation layers. Cisco ACI Fabric has three key components:.
The APIC provides a single point of management for fabric switches, including automation, troubleshooting, and operations management for the whole fabric. It provides consistent low latency and high performance. It gives users the choice to connect different applications with different bandwidth requirements in the same fabric. Cisco ACI policies define multitenancy, security, telemetry, and service chaining in the fabric.
A policy is configured on the APIC and is automatically applied to switches as needed.The top question all new ACI customers have or should haveis what are the configurations that should be enabled on my fabric from the beginning?
Multiple IP addresses with the same MAC address
Wherever possible, we will include the Cisco documentation for the links, or at the very least, a detailed explanation of our reasoning.
At a high level, options 2 and 3 will prevent the mis-learning of IP endpoints on your fabric that can occur. Mis-learning of endpoints leads to things like black-holed packets, as a remote IP endpoints can get stuck on a border leaf for example. The process of clearing such events is cumbersome and causes a lot of heartburn. For detailed examples of use cases for each of the endpoint configuration knobs, please check out the ACI Endpoint Learning Whitepaper below.
While I always recommend that these changes are performed in a maintenance window, the impact from enabling these options would be basically non-existent i. Are you looking for a programmatic way of enabling all of the Global Setting Best Practices with a shell-script? For Bridge Domains, there are a wide-mixture of use-cases, and lots of perfectly valid use-cases for different configurations.
So — in general, best practice is in the eye of the beholder. However, proper planning for your fabric setup values is critical. When considering the values for your ACI fabric, it is important to remember that changing either the infrastructure IP address TEP IP pool range or the infra VLAN after the initial provisioning setup process is not possible without rebuilding the fabric.
While the default value for this is The Infra Subnet should not overlap with any other routed subnets in your network. This VLAN is used for control traffic between devices that make up the fabric i.
Microsegmentation with Cisco ACI
In addition, many Cisco devices have reserved Vlan ranges that are hard to modify i. Node ID Settings — Spines should be numbered between ; Leafs should be numbered and above. Check out this post for suggested tips on naming your objects in both the Tenant and Fabric Access Section of your fabric! Hey great article. This removes the possibility for the remote leafs to black hole traffic due to mislearned or stuck IP EPs.
By disabling the remote learning of IPs on remote leafs, the remote leafs do not look up the IP component of the EP on the leaf, but punt the traffic to the Spines, which already have knowledge of all endpoints. This leads to my question : — What happens if you activate the 4 global options on a live fabric? And I mean it in the best possible scenario, when everything is working and it does not trigger something unsupported.
Those are enhancements but what really happens? Do process restarts, are cache cleared leaving to an unresponsive fabric, or blocked servers for a few seconds? Laurent — Thanks for checking out the blog! To answer your questions, I always recommend these changes be done in a maintenance window just to be safe — but in actuality, the impact from enabling them should be minimal. For IP aging, there should be no impact.The Common Pervasive Gateway feature is being deprecated and is not actively maintained anymore.
When operating more than one Cisco ACI fabric, we highly recommend that you deploy Multi-Site instead of interconnecting multiple individual ACI fabrics to each other through leaf switches using the Common Pervasive Gateway feature.
The Common Pervasive Gateway feature is currently not supported because no validations and quality assurance tests are performed in this topology for many other new features, such as L3 multicast. Doing so enables moving one or more virtual machine VM or conventional hosts across the fabrics while the host retains its IP address. VM host moves across fabrics can be done automatically by the VM hypervisor.
The ACI fabrics can be co-located, or provisioned across multiple sites. The Layer 2 connection between the ACI fabrics can be a local link, or can be across a bridged network.
The following figure illustrates the basic common pervasive gateway topology. Depending upon the topology used to interconnect two Cisco ACI fabrics, it is required that the interconnecting devices filter out the traffic source with the Virtual MAC address of the gateway switch virtual interface SVI. Multiple bridge domains can be configured to communicate across connected ACI fabrics.
The Bridge domain that is configured to communicate across ACI fabrics must be in flood mode. Do not connect hosts directly to an inter-connected Layer 2 network that enables a pervasive common gateway among the two ACI fabrics.
In the Create Bridge Domain dialog box, perform the required actions to choose the appropriate attributes:.
In the Main tab, in the Name field, enter a name for the bridge domain, and choose the desired values for the remaining fields. In the Treat as virtual IP address field, check the check box. Double click the Bridge Domain that you just created in the Work pane, and perform the following action:.
Click the Policy tab, then click the L3 Configurations subtab. Expand Subnets again, and in the Create Subnets dialog box, to create the physical IP address in the Gateway IP field, use the same subnet which is configured as the virtual IP address. For example, if you used Click Submit to complete the configuration in the Create Subnet window.
In the L3 Configurations tab for the same bridge domain that you just created, click the Virtual MAC Address field, and change Not Configured to the appropriate value, then click Submit. Confirm that the bridge domain MAC pmac values for each fabric are unique.
This step essentially ties the virtual MAC address that you enter in this field with the virtual IP address that you entered in the previous step.They are definitely different boxes. What issue are you trying to resolve, specifically? What are these "connection issues"? RDP - losing connection. We had a similiar issue with another sql server with a static IP address, that once we let it go to dhcp we no longer had the problem.
ARP table in the switch? Is this a local address your are connecting to? Have you run a tracert? Are there any RDP error log entries? What about server log entries? Hypoluxa wrote: We had a similiar issue with another sql server with a static IP address, that once we let it go to dhcp we no longer had the problem. That generally tells me that the server was misconfigured Is there any virtualization involved? Do you have a Cisco ASA firewall or other firewall on the network that may be doing proxy-arp?
It is physical. It isn't an application issue. Clean error log. Simple flat network. Our desktops each have unmanaged switches going through a 48 port Dell ?. No firewalls except going to the internet. It stopped working Exact same thing happened with another server about 3 or 4 months ago.
Have you tried a different switchport? Different cable? Does it affect all clients or just the one? What are the actual configurations on both client and server? We do have a netgear 24port PoE switch kind of flakey in the mix, although the workstations are not connecting to server through AFAIK.
Quote: Our desktops each have unmanaged switches Wait I'll give you odds that somebody keeps creating a bridge loop. F'ing bridge loops. I don't think anybody plugged anything in I can no longer get into the interface of that switch. Take a step back. Quit focusing on the MAC addresses. It's perfectly valid to see this in a normal environment. You need to confirm the things I've already asked you.
