Symptoms

MAP implementation not working with EA bits length set to 0.

Impact

MAP-E tunnel does not work.

Conditions

MAP-E tunnel profile is configured with (ea-bits-length == 0) and (ip4-prefix-length greater than 0). - Case when (ea-bits-length == 0) and (ip4-prefix-length is greater than 0). - Case when (ip6-prefix-length plus ea-bits-length, which is the MAP domain prefix-length) is greater than 48 bits. In this case, the Interface ID in the IPv6 destination address will be overwritten.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

MAP implementation is now working with EA bits length set to 0.
