relearning 6 addrs per min; mac address 02 01 00 00 00 00

I couldn't find a solution to my problem in this group so I am posting this in hopes that you may find it useful.


I started getting these messages in my cisco 3500xl cluster logs every minute.

%RTD-CLUSTER_MEMBER_7-1-ADDR_FLAP: FastEthernet0/9 relearning 6 addrs per min

sh mac showed a mac address of 0201.0000.0000 coming from FastEthernet0/9 along with the real mac of the nic card bound to the ip address. The host was a Windows 2003 server running the network load balancing service. This service was generating the

02:01:00:00:00:00 mac transmission.

Solution: go to network connection properties and look for the service named network load balancing and uninstall it. This will cause the server to disconnect for a moment so beware if you are using a remote console or your users are logged on.
