I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't.  At least from the switch.  The old-school approach is to login to the next switch in line, and check the tables to see where the device is.  And just keep working towards it.
