12.2(33)SRA 12.2(40.1)S 12.2SRB

Description (partial)

Symptoms: A Cisco 7600 series may enter a state in which the FIB is frozen, 
and the syslog may show information similar to the following: 

%MLSCEF-SP-2-SANITY_FAIL: Sanity Check of MLS FIB s/w structures failed
%MLSCEF-SP-2-FREEZE: hardware switching disabled on card

In this frozen state the data plane is not affected, but new forwarding
information does not take effect on the hardware, causing an inconsistency 
between MPLS or IP software forwarding and the hardware.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when the TCAM information for a label or 
prefix and mask does not match the software version, which prevents the TCAM 
driver from deleting the label or prefix and mask. For example, the symptom 
may occur when a label is moved from one type (for example, form an aggregate 
label) to another other type (for example, to a non-aggregate label).
