Hi all, I have a few questions in regards to SIA.
My first question is in regards to the following excerpt:
"If the router does not receive all the replies before the âactive-timeâ timer expires, DUAL declares the route as stuck-in-active (SIA)."
Is this true? If so, does that mean that even if a valid successor route is given to the querier, the querier will not accept it until all routers which were queried replied? And if not all reply, then the route will still be labeled SIA even though there is an alternative route?
My second question is in regards to this excerpt:
"If no reply is received from a particular neighbor before the Active timer times out, then the neighbor will be removed from the neighbor table."
Does this mean that if a neighbor does not reply to a query about one route, then the whole neighbor is removed from the adjacency table even though it is still sending and receiving Hello packets and could be the Successor for other routes?
