Known Affected Versions:

Opened: Jul 26, 2016

Severity: 4-Minor


'tmsh show net interface' may show that switch ports are still up after bcm56xxd is brought down. This is because bcm56xxd does not notify mcpd that bcm56xxd will go down.


The switch ports may seem up, but traffic can't be sent/received.


If the switch ports are up and bcm56xxd is brought down, 'tmsh show net interface' will show that the switch ports are still up.



Fix Information

Fix for bcm56xxd to notify mcpd that all ports become uninitialized before it goes down has already been implemented.
