Cisco 3750

There are a ton of 3750s on our network. When I need to find a machine, I do the following: a) Log into a switch b) Ping the ip of the machine c) check "show ip arp | incl ip" d) check "show mac-address-table | incl the.mac.address" e) if it returns Po1 or ports 25-28, I logon to the next switch, until I get a port listing in the range of 1-24 (which may be off a member of the switch if I'm dealing with a cluster.).

Is there an easier way to identify this from a single switch? Instead of logging on to a switch until you find which switch the machine is connected to?

I like to use the tool called NeDi. It is fairly easy to install and configure and it workes pretty well.
