Networking

As shown in Figure 1-1, terminals are connected to SwitchC and SwitchD, and Switch C is connected to the Internet through SwitchA and SwitchB in the upstream direction. MSTP is deployed on the network to remove loops. VRRP is configured on both SwitchA and SwitchB to implement reliability and load balancing.

Fault Symptom

Both SwitchA and SwitchB are VRRP master devices, and some network segments cannot access the Internet in wireless and wired services.

Cause Analysis

A loop occurs on SwitchD.

Troubleshooting Procedure

                          Step 1     Run the display cpu-defend statistics all command. It is found that a large number of VRRP packets are sent to the CPU while a large number of VRRP packets are discarded.

                          Step 2     Run the display trapbuffer command to check alarm information on the switch. An alarm indicating MAC address flapping is generated.

Check that a loop occurs on SwitchD based on Original-Port and Flapping port in the alarm information. After the loop is removed, the fault is rectified.
