I have a situation where I need to place a static MAC on a switch as the server in question does not generate any outbound traffic. This static MAC seems as if it will work for hosts on the same switch but it will not likely work for hosts on other switches. Besides putting the static MAC in every switch is there a way to simply propagate static MAC addresses so the other switches can simply dynamically learn the MAC across the trunks just like any other. My topology is as follows.
Host 1 should have no problem communicating with the static MAC at L2 but Host 2 will likely have problems.
For the sake of discussion let's just assume Cisco Nexus switches.
