mac address learning of actual physical port on lacp

 

We have LACP  aggregate connection to the switch.

is there any way i can learn the mac address of the switch port itself on the PA ?

 

Right now PA only shows me mac address of chassis of the switch.

I may be misunderstanding the question, but isn't the firewall just learning the mac to the relevant IP addresses it is communicating with. unless the switch ports have an IP associated to it and performing L3 functions, the firewall wouldn't need to know their mac

in our setup switch port has layer 3 IP address.

Yes you got it right i mean to say exactly what you said below

 

 isn't the firewall just learning the mac to the relevant IP addresses it is communicating with
