Description (partial)


Nexus3000 installs host entry into its hardware for non vPC vlans if peer-gateway is enabled, which causes OSPF neighbor adjacency not to be established.
As a result, OSPF neighbor in vlans, which is not allowed in peer-link but goes on other link, experiences stack in EXSTART then DOWN because OSPF DBD packet which has TTL=1 
can not reach the destination vPC switch. Not only OSPF DBD packets but also any other kind of packets with TTL=1 will be punted to CPU of vPC peer switch 
in the transit path which prevents the packets from reaching the destination vPC switch. 


peer-gateway is enabled.
