When multicast traffic is passing on a high availability (HA) pair, the pimd daemon on the unit that transitions to standby may exit and drop a core file.


None. The system that goes active will reconverge, and multicast traffic will resume.


-- Multicast routing configured. -- PIM-Sparse Mode configured. -- HA failover configuration.


No workaround required.

Fix Information

The pimd daemon no longer exits when an HA failover occurs.
