6900 CAT/OS

On a 6900 CAT/OS how do I find the mod/port that a server or workstation is plugged into. Thanks.

Go to the router, do a show arp | include . Or if its a windows box, do a nbtstat -A from another windows box. Either should give you the MAC address.

Go to the 6500 w/ Cat, do a show mac (make sure its in the format aa-bb-cc-dd-ee-ff. This should tell you the mod/port the box is connected to, or the trunk to the switch where it is connected downstream (if applicable).

If you don't have an IP and/or MAC, you will have to trace cables.
