Symptoms

When an ECMP route is learned via dynamic routing, it is not added to the Linux host and local processes may not be able to reach the destination prefix. Load balanced traffic is not affected.

Impact

Monitors may fail, other host-originated traffic may be sent out the wrong interface or nowhere at all.

Conditions

Dynamic routing in use, ECMP configured, ECMP route received from neighbors.

Workaround

Disable ECMP in ZebOS by setting "maximum-paths 1" in imish.

Fix Information

ECMP routes are correctly added to the Linux host.
