Hi Alex,

Port security is a feature that binds the mac address to specific port on the device.
The maximum number of MAC addresses any single interface can secure is 64 (the maximum number of local resources allocated to the interface), plus the number of global resources available.

  • Can you elaborate the problem in detail.
  • What are the configuration commands exactly applied on device?
  • What happened exactly during the problem?
    Did the port shut down when the port security is enabled on the device?
  • Do we have a chance to collect any logs from switch during the problem?
  • Also, the below command output will help address the issue.

- show version
- show module
- Show port security mac eth <num>
- show run int eth <num>

please open a support case so we can formally investigate.
