Sorry sir for the late reply, i have checked it but not completely it was there for a bit long time i guess it would be there for 30 mins, so wat i should do abt it, my first confusion is why the lsa is even there ??? when the adjancey is down doesnt it should discard all the information receievd from that neighbour ???
