Description (partial)

Fresh install of ISE 1.2.1 

Configured IP on the interface Gig Eth0 per setup script at initial install.

A continuous ping during setup is successful once the interface is brought up by the setup script.

After install completes and the reboot takes place per the setup script, if you initiate a ping to the iPEP node there is no response as long as the cable in plugged into interface Gig Eth0.

When you put the cable in interface Gig Eth2 the ISE iPEP node begins respond to the ping.

At initial configuration when the Gig Eth0 is configured the ping is successful. Once the ISE application completes and the ISE DB is installed, At this time the node is reachable via ping. Once the DB completes installing and the node reboots, we then loose connectivity. and the behavior above is observed.

Additional info:

According to the show interface Gig Eth0 has a mac address of XX:YY:XX:YY. 

When the network cable is plugged into Gig Eth2 that mac address XX:YY:XX:YY then shows up on the switch.

as long as the cable is plugged into Gig Eth0 the mac address doesn't show on the switch.

Tested on two separate 3415s.  We dont see the issue on 3315s.
