Opened: Feb 21, 2023

Severity: 4-Minor


If Disconnect Peer Action is configured to force-offline and when server peer sends Disconnect Peer Request (DPR), then MRF force-offline the pool-member as expected. However, MRF continues to send CER towards pool member, which means MRF is trying to connect the forced-offline peer and also it sends DPR towards pool member.


Unnecessary CER and DPR messages towards down pool member.


In diameter session profile, Disconnect Peer Action is configured to force-offline.


Set auto-initialization to disabled in diameter peer if it does agree with the requirement.
