Severity: 3-Major


The mcpd daemon exits with -1 exit code, triggering restart of mcpd and some other system services. You might see messages in ltm.log: -- err mcpd[21618]: 0107142f:3: Can't connect to CMI peer, TMM outbound listener not yet created. -- err mcpd[21618]: 01070596:3: An unexpected failure has occurred, Cannot get route for dest in rd0 Invalid entry type: 3 - net/validation/routing.cpp, line 1231, exiting.


This triggers interruption during config sync on the device initiating the exchange. Restart of mcpd and other important system services may cause temporary interruption in device operation.


-- Device has been configured to use a non-unicast address as its self IP. -- There are attempts to establish device trust with it.


Do not use non-unicast addresses for self IP configuration.
