Description (partial)

When enabling a secondary ERSPAN session using IPv4 filtering on a Nexus 7000 with F2E linecards, the ERSPAN session will be held "down" with the Reason: "No operational src/dst". Even after a flap "shut/no-shut" of the session this will remain. Removing and re-adding the session will result n the same behavior.

This issue occurs when first adding a secondary ERSPAN session that utilises filtering of IPv4 on Nexus 7000 using the F2E linecard. This has yet to be tested on other linecards so it could possibly be a issue on other cards.This issue does not appear to occur when there is no "Filter" configuration.

# Adding the following configuration into the switch
monitor session 28 type erspan-source
description TAC_TESTING_ERSPAN_7k
erspan-id 2
vrf erspan
destination ip
source interface port-channel903 both
filter frame-type ipv4
filter frame-type ipv4 src-ip
filter frame-type ipv4 dest-ip
no shut

# Will result in the following
