DRAC6 Static IP issue with Cisco switches

This question is not answered

When I assign a static IP to dedicated port on drac6 enterprise none of my switches will see a MAC on the switchport.

When I switch DRAC to DHCP it shows and works fine.

I have several dozen servers of various models (r210, r410, r510, r515, r610, r710) and they all have the same problem.

I also have several hundred switches and confirmed this is an issue on every switch I've tested ranging from Cisco 2950, 4500, 3560 and various OS versions from 12.2 - 15.0

They work fine on Juniper switches just not Cisco.
