Opened: May 12, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Creating a self IP address after a route-domain using TMSH reports an error: 01070712:3: Cannot get device index for Backend in rd2 - ioctl failed: No such device.

Impact

Self IP address creation fails after route-domain creation. Unable to run declarative-onboarding declaration.

Conditions

Using tmsh, create a Trunk, create a VLAN on the trunk, create a route-domain, then create a self IP address.

Workaround

Add a short delay after modifying/creating the route domain before creating the self IP address. Note: Self IP address should be created after route-domain creation.

Fix Information

None
