I have three sites running EIGRP in a ring topology. Sites 1 and 2 have been up and running for years, we added site 3 recently.
We've run into an issue where every so often the 6509 in site 3 basically drops all routes for about 6 minutes. It un-neighbors and all traffic is dropped during that time. This includes most traffic for directly connected routes (though for some reason, there seems to be 1 or two subnets that can continue to function).
I'm at a loss for what to look for, at Site 1 and 2 I can see the EIGRP events where site 3 neighbors again after the
issue occurs. But everything looks clean within 6509 and I can't seem to find anything wrong.
Any assistance or advice would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance.
The sites are connected via bundled T's with a copper handoff. 10Mb on one site, 12Mb on the other, with a 50Mb line between sites 1 and 2.
The issue seems to be relegated to Site 3 as site 1 and 2 only show EIGRP neighboring again after the issue occurs at site 3. Both other sites can route between each other and internally without issue.
Attached is a current config with most ports redacted (basic switchport/port channel configs).
What logging would you suggest I look at? Sh ip eigrp events buffer overwrites too quickly and only shows the routes being re-added. There's nothing in the sh log from anytime within the last 2 weeks. Anyplace else you'd suggest I look?
There are a few routes that are located behind our firewall. 10.50.255.1 is the vip of our FW cluster. It hides a few vlan's behind it for management.
I think I've found the underlying cause. The issue has happened 3 times since last week. When looking at a few ports, there were also 3 if resets on them for just that single blade. All other blades look clean and had no if resets. This blade also houses our site to site links.
Looks like we have a bad blade. Opening a case now to get it replaced.
