CSS 11503 cannot detect services

Hi,


Please help. I have an issue with the CSS 11503.


After performing maintenance job on the Cisco core switch, where CSS's interfaces are connected to, both CSS (master and standby) were not able to detect the the servers in the network. Even though at that point of time the core switch was already up, the servers were alive on the network and services were up.


To resolve the issue, I tried to restart CSS, it did not work. I had to shutdown, turn off both CSS and turn them on again after a short while.


Is this problem related to STP of the CSS or Core Switch? Mismatch of STP parameters with the Core switch? Clear Arp? Disable STP on CSS and turn on Port Fast? Enable preempt on Master?


Please advice on how to rectify the problem.

HI GerryLim,



Could you please publish the out put of the following command so as to check for the hit counts of DOS (denial-of-services) attack:


CSS11500(config)# show dos

You might get around this by modifying the SNMP settings:


snmp trap-type enterprise dos-illegal-attack trap-threshold X


...where X is the number of connections per second for which the CSS will generate a trap message like the one you describe.


The default setting is 1, meaning that any one packet matching the criteria would generate a trap.


I suggest you modify the value X to match up with your VRRP keepalive timers to avoid these messages.


According to the docs, the following DOS protection trap-types exist:


  a.. dos-illegal-attack: Generates traps for illegal addresses, either  source or destination. Illegal addresses are loopback source addresses,
broadcast source addresses, loopback destination addresses, multicast source  addresses, or source addresses that you own. The default trap threshold for this type of attack is one per second.


  b.. dos-land-attack: Generates traps for packets that have identical source and destination addresses. The default trap threshold for this type
of attack is one per second.


  c.. dos-ping-attack: Generates traps when the number of pings exceeds the threshold value. The default trap threshold for this type of attack is 30 per second. Note that this does not track pings of death DoS attacks.


  d.. dos-smurf-attack: Generates traps when the number of pings with a broadcast destination address exceeds the threshold value. The default trap
threshold for this type of attack is one per second.


  e.. dos-syn-attack: Generates traps when the number of TCP connections that are initiated by a source but not followed with an ACK frame to
complete the three-way TCP handshake exceeds the threshold value. The default trap threshold for this type of attack is ten per second.


Hope this helps!
