No NLB virtual mac address show at ARP table

Hi There....

Just to check is windows NLB virtual mac address will appear at switch ARP table?
Because i'm using Dell M6220, show bridge command only show physical MAC address, no NLB virtual MAC appear.
Please advise.

Hi,

The virtual addresses are not shown in the switch table. The switch will only show the physical MAC addresses associated to the devices which are connected to it.
