Cisco Bug: CSCta55476 - N7K: Learning breaks on non-vpc uplinks after vPC peer failure
Jan 28, 2017
- Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: 1. MAC address learning breaks on non-VPC L2 ports when the vPC peer is reloaded or the peerlink is brought down. This happens when the last member of a port-channel on a line card goes down. The packets are flooded; hence there is no packet loss. 2. After (1) happens, if there is a port-flap of non-vPC L2 ports, L2 learning on non-vPC L2 ports is restored, but MAC address learning happens on vPC peer-link, and this can result in packet drops. This problem does not exist in 4.2(1), but existed in the releases prior to 4.2(1) release of Nx-OS. But, an upgrade of Nx-OS from an older version like 4.1(5) to 4.2(1) would not automatically fix the issue. An upgrade from any older image to 4.2(2) automatically fixes up the problem. Conditions: When the last member of the peer-link port-channel on a given line card goes down, this results in learning being disabled on all non-vPC L2 ports on the line card. After this, if a flap occurs, learning on non-vPC L2 ports is restored, but learning is enabled on vPC peer-links.
