Disable URPF on a Network-Side Interface When a Shared Address Pool Is Deployed in a Dual-Device Hot Backup Scenario


Deploying exclusive address pools requires a large number of address pools to be planned, which wastes address resources. To resolve the preceding issue, deploy a shared address pool. The following figure shows the deployment of a shared address pool in a dual-device hot backup scenario.


Configuration Requirements

The undo ip urpf command must be run on a network-side interface to disable URPF.

Misconfiguration Risks

Risk description:

When a shared address pool is configured in a dual-device hot backup scenario, traffic passes through the protection tunnel and reaches the user side if the master device's user-side link fails. If URPF is configured on the network-side interface, there is a possibility that downstream traffic cannot enter the protection tunnel. As a result, traffic loss occurs.


Identification method:

  • Run the display remote-backup-service service-name command to check all RBS information.

    • Check whether a shared address pool is bound to an RBS.

      Check whether an address pool name exists in the ip pool field in the command output.

      If an address pool name exists in the ip pool field, a shared address pool has been bound to the RBS. Go to the next step.

      If no address pool name exists in the ip pool field, the configuration requirements are not involved.

    • Check whether a protection tunnel is configured for the RBS.

      Check whether the command output contains the Protect-type and Out-interface fields.

  • Run the display this command in the network-side interface view to check whether URPF is configured.
