I have a Cisco WS-C6509-E with IOS, connected to a hypervisor with multiple VMs on it.
The port on the 6500 that connects to the hypervisor is a trunk port and has bpduguard enabled.
One of the VMs is causing the port to go into err-disable state by send bpdus. I am trying to figure out which, from the Cisco itself. Specifically I'm trying to find that VMs MAC address.
Is this possible? I have looked at debugging with full spanning-tree debugging on but all i get is that the port goes into err-disable. It doesn't tell me what the offending MAC address is (or anything about the BPDU).
Short of stripping VLANs from the trunk until I have the culprit network (which won't actually give me the culprit device but rather, only its VLAN), I'm not sure if there is a direct command or debug to give me this information directly. Can anyone help?
