What is the use case of the
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security mac-address sticky 0000.1111.1111 command?
By definition, a sticky address is a learned secure address that is added to the running configuration. By definition, a configured address is a secure address that is statically configured via
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security mac-address 0000.2222.2222.
By manually adding a sticky address, I've added a configured address. The command seems to me redundant and contradictory to the concept of a sticky MAC address.
debug port-security entries in the system log call a sticky a configured address. After having issued
Switch# clear port-security sticky address 0000.1111.1111, there are entries such as
PSECURE: Deleting secure MAC address 0000.1111.1111 on port and
PSECURE: Address is sticky on port and
PSECURE: Delete configured address: 0000.1111.1111 from subblock.
