Multisource Detection, which is always enabled, will recognize the multiple source MAC addresses and set the port’s operational point-to-point status to false, treating the port as a shared media device.
The port is constantly monitored. If the situation is resolved, as determined by receiving a unique address for a sufficient amount of time, the port’s operational point-to-point status will revert to true.
When loop protect is configured for the port, if multisource detection is triggered, the port will go to the listening state and no longer be part of the active topology. Loop protect does not operate on shared media ports.
