  • VSP4000
  • VSP7200
  • VSP8400
  • VOSS
Cause
This is the known SW bug present since 7.1 SW release.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

When v-IST peer MAC(any mac in its range), is learnt locally, its considered to be a loop/ or a transient state and the mac is pointed back to the peer. A log messages is generated indicating the same.
  1. Current code does not handle MLT case, wherein if the local UNI side is a MLT, then it prints some invalid port.
  2. Right after boot up, if this condition arises, the log is generated only after the silence window which is 24 hrs which is impractical and does not help much.
Resolution
The bug should be fixed in 8.0.6 or 8.1 SW release.
