HP-search-MAC is an util that can query HP switches for their connection table. It then allow you to search for a MAC address and tell you where it is physically connected (best match first). . The functionality is similar to traceroute but on Ethernet level and only for HP switches.

--hostname host[=>community] | -h host[=>community] Set a switch name to search. You can also set this in
/etc/hp-search-mac.conf or ~/.hp-search-mac.conf. The hash to set is \%switches.
You can use some different formats: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff (hex)
This is a normal perl hash of the form
\%switches = (\``host\'' => \``community\'', ...);
