Host Mac Addresses on a Cisco Switch

I have to find where a server nic is connected in the network. I was certain there was a way to know what mac address was on which port but I needed Google to find a good article to show me how to get that information.

Once on the switch you can simply execute:

sh mac address-table

to see all the mac addresses the switch is aware of but when you are looking for a specific mac address you can execute this:

sh mac-address-table address 0011.bbcc.ddzz

Very simple and very convenient if I could only find the nic somewhere.
