Can a MAC filter ever be 'Full'? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in a very large organization that runs Windows Server 2008 R2 for domain controllers. The direct customer support technicians (me) were recently told by a higher tier that any new systems to be added to the domain must have a request submitted showing the MAC address of the system it is replacing. Their reasoning was that the MAC filter file was full and no new MAC addresses could be added. This seems highly unlikely and an excuse for some other reason. Is it possible that the MAC filter ACL could ever become too full to add new MACs? If not, what other scenarios might explain this 'excuse'?
