Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

* the LEAF A while originating the IPv6 BGP packets towards directly connected FW, sends it across EVPN fabric instead of directly
* the remote LEAVES (C/D) bounces the packet back and then it's correctly forwarded towards Firewall.
* capture of packets (eg. ethanalyzer) originated by LEAF A shows that the packet gets VxLAN encapsulated and sent towards the VIP of leaves C/D

* EVPN fabric
* Device (eg. FW) connected to the LEAF_A/B peers IPv6 eBGP with it (possibly other protocols affected as well)
* The Firewall is deployed in Active/Standby mode: Active FW connected to one pair of leaves (A/B), standby connected to the other pair (leaves C/D)
