Symptoms

CMP state change can result in a blade crash.

Impact

Blade crash resulting in potential loss of service.

Conditions

CMP state change with a PEM profile enabled on a virtual. The former can be triggered using a TMM restart/unrelated crash, blade insertion or blade administrative state change.

Workaround

Deploy PEM in an HA-pair with a chassis fail over configured to occur if at most one blade on the active chassis fails.

Fix Information

The system now gracefully handles sessionDB errors due to a CMP state change.
