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.

Hi uetian1707.... does it meant that deploying a windows NLB, the user have to manually add static arp
on the switch..?? do you have any documentation or any source that explain why switch will not show virtual MAC?? also, does this apply to cisco switch as well?
