We have a 2960 switch, with no port security.  We need to replace a server that is attached to F0/11, but keeping the same IP.  Initally, the switch will be confused, since the ARP table will be wrong.   Clearing ARP is the preferred solution, but if the network adminstrator is not around, will a PING from the new host to any other host automatically reset that ARP entry?
