EIGRP Neighbor flapping 4500 & 6500

Unanswered Question
Mar 17th, 2010

Thanks in advance for your help, I'm hoping that this is a known issue since it occurs on several of our 4500 access swiches with redundant sup V and port channel uplinks (routed) to 6500 (core) switches, two to three times a day we experience the loss of EIGRP adjacencies on these port channels, the adjacencies are re-form inmediately which causes EIGRP reconvergence, table updates etc. There is nothing special about this configuration, 4500 sup V active has two 1Gb ports bundled (L3) and uplinked to "core 1 port channel #1, 4500 sup V standby is a duplicate of the active sup with two 1Gb ports bundled (L3) uplinking to "core 2 port channel #1. Nothing seems to trigger the flap, it just seems to happen without any good reason. Any help is appreciated.

I have this problem too.

Hello, Can you try removing the redundant port channell and keep only one port channel between the chassis. and see whether the problem

re occurs.

Did you ever get a response to this issue? I am finding the same problem, only with no port channels. A few times a week, all the neighbors of this 4509 will time out and send Peer Termination messages, and then almost instantly the neighbors are rediscovered and adjacencies are reestablished.

What is the peer down reason in the log? Hold timer expired? Retry limit exceeded?
