Details: 2050: 002189: *Mar 7 22:16:00 Tanzani: %PORT_SECURITY-2-PSECURE_VIOLATION: Security violation occurred, caused by MAC address 30aa.bdb9.bd9f on port FastEthernet0/3."

    Is there a host with MAC address 30aa.bdb9.bd9f that was plugged there before? It seems like a host was on fa0/3. Then you plugged another host on that port while Port Security already learned the old MAC. What is the maximum MAC addresses allowed?

    The reason it shuts down is the default behaviour of Port Security violation, which is "shutdown". You can change this later with "switchport port-security violation {...}". But for now, I suggest you do a "no switchport port-security" on the port to disable Port Security, then check what MAC addresses are learned on it, with "show mac address-table interface f0/3".

    Keep us informed.
