I was planning on using the SG 200-08 as a simple way to filter out all trafic but from two servers to some of my devices. The plan was to use port security and allow only the MAC-addresses of these servers on port 1. 1. I go to Security -> Port security and set Admin Mode: Enable to true. I apply the change 2. Then I set port 1 to locked, max 2 static addresses, max 0 dynamic addresses, Action on violation: Discard. 3. Then I go to MAC Address Tables -> Static addresses and add the two MAC-addresses I want to let thru. Status is set to Secure. 4. Copy Running Config to Startup Config. This works well, but as soon as the switch is rebooted the Status field of the MAC-addresses entered in step 3 are changed from Secure to Permanent. This effectively means the switch only does what I want till it is rebooted. Does anyone know how to work around this problem or bug? See attached picture for explanation if my text is not good enough.
