%C4K_EBM-4-HOSTFLAPPING: Host 86:AA:C0:79:AA:6A in vlan 60 is flapping between port Gi5/9 and port Gi5/23

%C4K_EBM-4-HOSTFLAPPING: Host 86:EE:E0:79:AF:6D in vlan 60 is flapping between port Gi5/9 and port Gi5/23.

Can you please suggest a fix?

Message means that packets with same source MAC address coming from two different interface. That means you may have a netwrok loop causing this. You need to go to devices connected to interfaces Gi5/9 and Gi5/23 and check where this MAC is learnt on those. And trace it further same way checking the STP details.

By this you will find a loop to fix it. Most common cause is High CPU on one f the switches in the way or uni-directional link causing STP problems.

Do a show cdp neighbor and see if the switch sees itself on those 2 ports , if so then those 2 ports are somehow physically tied together and must be fixed , spanning tree won't always fix this situation though it should.
