Cisco Bug: CSCtc40859 - IPSG - Incorrect TCAM programming when 2 hosts swap their DHCP addresses
Jan 29, 2017
- Cisco Catalyst 6000 Series Switches
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: Machine1 has IP X. Power down machine1, power up machine 2 and assign the same IP X. Power down machine2, power up machine 1 and assign the same IP X. Power up machine2 and assign IP Y. Before machine 2 is powered up again, IP X is associated with both machine1 and machine2. When machine2 eventually gets assigned IP address Y as its address, it is seen by switch as machine2 moving from address X to address Y. So TCAM entry of X is removed and programmed with Y. But at this point we need to also check if address X is associated with some other host (in this case machine1) before we purge it. This is the bug - machine1 has no entry in the TCAM and no traffic passes until further DHCP traffic is seen. Conditions: IPSG enabled which adds IP addresses learned by DHCP into the TCAM.
