With a specific OSPF configuration, during a failover, a peer which is changed from standby to active may experience an ospfd daemon crash.


An OSPF daemon crashes, losing routing information and OSPF dynamic routes for a moment while ospfd daemon restarts.


High availability configuration with a routing configuration: 1) access-list with filtering: access-list 199 remark test access-list 199 deny ip host host access-list 199 permit ip any any 2) OSPF router with this access-list: router ospf 1 ospf router-id bfd all-interfaces network area distribute-list 199 in ! -- The device with this configuration is in the standby state. -- A failover occurs.



Fix Information

An ospfd daemon no longer crashes during a failover.
