  • 1.  MAC Limit of 1

    Posted 09-06-2012 14:09

    On our cisco switches we will normally set a mac limit of 1 on access ports for end users unless they are voip ports and then we set it for 2.


    We are trying to do the same thing on our Juniper switches but I came across this:


    which states never use a mac limit of 1.


    How can we lock down a port to a single mac?

    If you're talking about a port, then limiting the number of MACs to 1 is supported and it works fine.

    IMO. the documentation should be corrected to reflect that it's not advisable to limit the number of MACs in a VLAN or LAG to 1 (for the reasons mentioned on the page).

    just provided this feedback to the doc owner. Will let you know if this can be modified. IF not, then will let you know the reason 🙂

    the document has been fixed with this addition:

    "If the VLAN is composed of regular access or trunk interfaces, you can set the mac-limit to 1 if you choose to do so."


    Thanks for pointing this out and helping us improve the page.
