When P2P is configured and a firewall policy is set, OSPF status is set to 'exstart' when AFM is provisioned and tm.fw.defaultaction is set to 'drop'/'reject'.


OSPFv3 does not work.


P2P is configured and a firewall policy is set.


You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Configure global policy to allow OSPF protocol traffic, similarly to: security firewall policy Policy_OSPF { description "Allow OSPF" rules { OSPF_1 { action accept-decisively ip-protocol ospf rule-number 1 } } } -- Disable firewall entirely: Set tm.fw.defaultaction to allow: tmsh modify sys db tm.fw.defaultaction value allow
