S.w message

Folks,

I keep on gettin the following msg on one of my core 4500 s/w.

"%C4K_L2MAN-6-INVALIDSOURCEADDRESSPACKET: (Suppressed 10429 times)Packet received with invalid source MAC address(mac addrs"

The mac address which appears seems to be normal and is not all zero's.

i tried tracing this mac but it doesnt seem to exist in either the arp or the mac table of the sw, even checked in couple of my distribution s.w.

Any idea how we can trace this mac.I pretty know the reason y it occurs but more importantly am trying to trace this mac to make sure its not a threat factor or something of that sort.

Thanks in advance to all gurus!!
