Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded

Hi,

I got this erroron my CSS 11503:"%% Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded. Cannot activate"

Cisco says that:

CSCek46451 - If you attempt to modify a configured service or global keepalive, you may incorrectly receive the message "%% Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded. Cannot activate" when the maximum number has not been exceeded. This message may occur when you configure a global keepalive and add the global keepalive to a service. Later, you change the global keepalive type to type tcp. After you activate the keepalive or it is modified dynamically when the global keepalive is already active, the internal keepalive count is corrupted. This problem may cause any further service or global keepalive modifications to fail with the previously-described error message.

How can I solve this issue without upgrading software of CSS 11503? Current version 8.10

Re: Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded

You have 8.10(1.06) and the problem has been fixed in 8.10(2.05)

You need to upgrade to the latest 8.10 version which is 8.10(6.02).

After that the problem will be solved.

Re: Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded

There is a limit of keepalives to configure. Limit depends on type of keepalive. Class A and class B. Type in "sh keepalive-summary brief" and you see your maximum. Changing firmware will not extend the limits.

CISCOCSS# sh keepalive-summary brief

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEEPALIVES:  System Maximum - 2048
  Class A (ICMP, TCP, HTTP-head non-persistent, SSL):          MAX - 2048

Hello!

Can you provide your configuration? And maybe the output of the command above.

Re: Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded

The number of my keepalives don't reach limit of 2048.

CSS11503# sh keepalive-summary

Keepalives:

AUTO_nexthop00001                State: Alive          10.0.139.254

AUTO_PRDWEB1-CRMWEB01            State: Alive          10.0.139.120

AUTO_PRDWEB2-CRMWEB02            State: Alive          10.0.139.121

AUTO_UATWEB1-CRMWEBTST01         State: Alive          10.0.139.140

AUTO_UATWEB2-CRMAPPTST03         State: Alive          10.0.139.146

AUTO_DIAMOND-WEB01               State: Down           10.0.139.97

AUTO_DIAMOND-WEB03               State: Alive          10.0.139.11

AUTO_DIAMOND-WEB02               State: Alive          10.0.139.98

AUTO_DIAMOND-WEB04               State: Alive          10.0.139.11

AUTO_NTP-Redundancy01            State: Alive          10.0.139.17

AUTO_NTP-Redundancy02            State: Alive          10.0.139.18

Option brief doesn't available.

service DIAMOND-WEB03

  ip address 10.0.139.11

  keepalive port 3333

  keepalive type tcp

  active

I have about 10 such kind of services.

I think the problem is in modificaton keepalive type dynamically when the global keepalive is already active, the internal keepalive count is corrupted. This problem may cause any further service or global keepalive modifications to fail with the previously-described error message.

Re: Maximum keepalives of this type have been exceeded

P.S. I can add keepalive type tcp, but can't keepalive type ICMP.
