Due to DEFECT000602832, when a flow is added with lower priority than the currently installed flows on an OpenFlow port, OpenFlow forwarding stops, causing traffic loss on all flows in that port.
For a hybrid port, this defect only affects OpenFlow forwarding and will not affect regular traffic forwarding on protected VLANs.
Devices running NI 5.8.00d, 5.9.00a and 6.0.00 are susceptible to this issue.
