In High School I had a knack for computers and networking and seemed to know what I was doing. Though I went to college to become a police officer I found myself in college working for the college IT dept hooking students up to the campus network. I went around to student rooms hooking their computers up to the Novell IPX/SPX network and building boot disks for them to connect to the basic network to do word processing and email. For the students that had better computers, I installed the TCP/IP stack on their computer and was able to give them high speed Internet as well as invite them to my on-campus game server where we played “Duke Nukem” death matches. Those were the days!
While still taking Criminal Justice classes I found myself working for that State of Vermont as a temporary network person, ranging from 1/2 time to full time while in class and during the summer.
I got my first break in June of 2000 where I got hired for a Local insurance company to be their sole Network Administrator.
From there I enhanced my skills with IOS and Windows and built a brand new network for the insurance company.
in 2002 I landed my dream job (at the time because I just received my criminal justice degree) at Burlington Police as their sole Network Administrator where I was able to move the department from a bunch of cobbed together Novell crap to a very well put together Windows and Cisco environment that ran well.
in 2005 I was scooped up by the City of Burlington start-up, Burlington Telecom, to build a triple play fiber to the home ISP. There is where I learned much about the carrier industry and was able to build an amazing network.
Then in 2009 I once again was scooped up by a regional NSP to bring their regional network to the next level past start-up.
in 2012 I landed my next dream job at the University of Vermont, where I am now, doing all the latest and greatest fun and amazing stuff that has to do with the next gen of networking.
As of 2/2/17 I have been accepted into the Cisco Champion Program.

Hello, Not sure if we hit a bug or a caveat of software with this situation. We have a 6807 vss pair that has a Layer 3 pagp Port channel to a 4500x vss pair. When we converted over to this L3 port channel, we had reachability issues across the Port-channel from random devices. One device in the same subnet could connect when another device in the same subnet couldn't. We then realized that it was possible the L3 port-channel was the cause, so we disabled one leg, and then everything was back to normal and reachability was restored for all devices. To correct this, we disabled 1 leg of the port channel and everything went back to normal. the previous normal was a pair of 3750's which we needed to remove. Our thinking is that VSS pair to VSS pair on a L3 port channel is not supported. We haven't tried converting the port channel from pagp to lacp, ran out of time in window. Ideas? code levels: 4500x = 03.06.07.E 6807 = 12.2(50r)SYS3 -Mike

I am getting:
%IPV6_ND-SW2-6-DUPLICATE_INFO: DAD attempt detected for "x" on Vlan"x"
Its not that critical to open a tac case, but I wanted to find the mac address that causing this error.
There is a procedure to capture packets that are hitting the cpu and the svi, but my syntax with the search engines is not working for me.
Can someone point me in right direction?
