Description (partial)

When the remote leaf switch POD redundancy feature is enabled, the RL tries to create a new coop connection with another POD's spine. This fabricSecurityTokenMo is periodically sent to all the nodes in the fabric every hour from the Cisco APIC and the fabricSecurityTokenMo's MD5 key is also sent, which is used for coop connection.

When there is a connectivity issue between the Cisco APIC cluster, sometimes the minority Cisco APIC sends the fabricSecurityTokenMo, which causes inconsistent md5 keys in some of the nodes.

This issue occurs when a new coop connection is initiated from a leaf switch to spine switch and both have different fabricSecurityTokenMos (that is, different MD5 keys).
