I am getting a ip conflict for an ip address that is in my dhcp scope, I am going to assume someone has static ip's setup.  How can I on the HP Procurve I think it is a 5418 find what port the mac address is in?  

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Follow the steps below:

1) log in (console, telnet, SSH, etc.) to the CLI
2) type “edomtset” and hit enter
3) type “edomtset” and hit enter (yes, again)
4) the prompt will change from “#” to “$”
5) Type either IHWMACtableshow or MAC_SHOW
