This might be a noob question but what happens within a switch (regarding mac tables) when a frame is moved from Device A on Switch 1 to Device B on Switch 2? I'm assuming the 2 switches are connected to each other.

I tried looking for this specific scenario up, though I always came across different results.

  • I'm unclear on what you are asking. A switch MAC address table is updated every time a frame enters the switch. The source MAC address of the frame is put in the table with the switch interface where the frame entered the switch. There are many questions and answers here if you search for MAC address table. – Ron Maupin Mar 6 '19 at 17:24
