- Clients connected to switch randomly lose ability to obtain ip address using DHCP
- Affected client device moved to another port on same switch and obtains ip address using DHCP
- If client moved back to original port, cannot get address using DHCP
- If client assigned static ip address and default gateway, cannot ping default gateway when connected to impacted port
- Mirroring traffic on up-link port and impacted port show packets egressing both ports and respective responses ingressing both ports, but packet does not make it from impacted port back onto wire to client device.
- Rebooting switch/stack will resolve temporarily, but issue may occur again on same or different port/unit
