Firewall is sending traffic when becoming passive for a few minutes

L0 Member

Hello friends,


I am experimenting a strange behaviour.


When performing a manual failover with the command: request high-avaliability state suspend, the firewall that become passive continues sending traffic to the BGP peers for about 3 minutes (ICMP packets), this is causing that those peers activate an anti-loop feature that freezes our MAC addresses on the Data Plane interfaces and in consequence the firewall that become active doesn't work correctly because we have Aggregate Interfaces and MACs are shared.


Someone knows if this is an expected behaviour or if there is a configuration that can solve this issue...?


The platform is 7000 and the OS version is 10.0.3


Thank you so much,


Best regards.

Have you confirmed/configured the Passive Link state to be shutdown vs perhaps configured as auto?
