this is a great contest!! i realy like cisco now! So if i fill in my personal details i would make a 0,001% change in winning an ipad but the change that Cisco can use the information for wathever they want is 100%. I think it is a great strategy to sell products and then put all support for the product (even configuration manuals ) behind a login. I would of course sell my personal infomertaion for an Ipad 32G 3G, just send me the thing and i will update my profile.

I have a catalyst express WS-CE500-24TT switch which is serving the connecting for several VM machines (SUN Solaris zones) . I have trouble with the connection of these virtual servers to the catalyst, since the catalyst identifies the functions of the ports based on the mac-addresses attached to these ports.(at least i think it does) Normaly a port set up as a server smartport should have 1 mac-address, but since i have virtual servers on 1 port i can have several servers and several mac-addresses. What is the best way to handle this, how to set up the smartports for virtual servers ? I get connection, STP and DHCP errors when i alter the settings. At his point only the "other"smartportrole is handling everything quite well. but i still receive "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) reply messages dropped for non-existing or disconnected devices on this interface." for 1 virtual windows 2003 server with a DHCP server.
