Hello,

 

ifconfig in root should provide those information.

ifmodeshow eth0 will also work to show the mac address if eth0 (as admin).  ethIf was introduced in FOS 7.3.

 

switch:admin> ifmodeshow eth0

Link mode: negotiated 100baseTx-HD, link ok

MAC Address: 00:60:69Smiley Very Happy0:24:40

Hello Antonio

 

Command doesn't seem to be recognized in v7.1.1c1. After looking into the documentation it seems like this command is available for v7.3.0 and after. 

 

Please advise

Hello Martin

 

Many thanks for your reply,

eth0 will display the MAC address of the active CP if i understand correctly

How do you display the MAC address of the stand-by CP?
