In the time you searched for this, you could have gotten somebody to disconnect and connect the cable a lot of times. Or just read the number on the patch panel.

Which port?

by jstinnett In reply to Shutdown and no Shutdwon

If you can telnet in to the Switch you could administratively shut down each port, one at a time, wait for a measure of time ........... for the phone to ring. Sooner or later you hear from the user you disconnected. No walking involved...
Or if your enterprise is very organized, there may be a cut sheet listing all the port assignments for each switch, in which case, you just look it up.

Most of us will tell you to take a walk to the client location, make a note of the receptacle that it's plugged in to, then walk to the IDF / switch, trace it it from the patch panel to the switch.
That's the way Fred and Barney used to do it.

Solarwinds made a switch port mapper aplication. It uses dhcp dns and switch mac info to tell you which computer is on which port. Its been a good number of years since I;ve used it.

what switches are you using

by aroberts In reply to Shutdown and no Shutdwon

i've got HP switches and you can log on to the GUI via the ip address and then on the configuration device view tab it shows you what ports are disabled and it gives you the option enable the port.
