Some mDNS packet is sent from slave interfaces (Doc ID 2473118.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version to [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the slave interfaces are connected to separate Cisco switches,
the switch sees duplicate multicast DNS (mDNS) packets from the same MAC on different ports,
concludes it is seeing a bridge loop and shuts one port off.

The only duplicate packets found were mDNS packets from the Link Local IPv6
addresses on the SLAVE interfaces.

This only happens when Clusterware starts. If Clusterware does not start,
the bond stays and the switch does not segment the port.
