TitleCan the FDB be cleared
Question
  • How to clear the FDB
  • How to clear the Filtering Database
  • How to clear the SAT
  • How to clear the Source Address Table
Environment
  • SecureStack
  • All firmware
Answer
There is not a command to clear all MAC addresses from the FDB. If the device is inactive on a port (has not sent any traffic in 300 seconds), its MAC address will automatically be removed due to aging time (300 seconds default). The only way to clear the FDB would be a reboot of the device.
Additional notes
The FDB will be cleared during events such as Spanning Tree Topology Change.
