Severity: 3-Major


After a Full Configuration Sync is performed in a device cluster, Ephemeral (FQDN) nodes on peers to the device initiating the Configuration Sync will report their status to Unknown with monitor status of Unchecked. Note that the nodes are still monitored properly by the peer devices.


Monitor status on the peer devices is reported incorrectly.


Full configuration sync performed in a device cluster with Ephemeral (FQDN) nodes configured.


Any of the following three options will correct reporting status on the peer devices: 1. Restart bigd 2. Cause monitoring to the FQDN node(s) to fail for at least one probing interval and then restore monitoring accessibility 3. Disable and then re-enable the FQDN node Each of these workarounds will result in the reported status of the FQDN node on the peer reporting correctly again however these will not prevent a subsequent configuration sync from placing the FQDN nodes back into Unknown status on peers.
