%OSPF-4-FLOOD_WAR messages after config change

I recently changed some configs on two L3 switches running OSPF.  After this change I'm now getting the below log message about ever 2 minutes or so on one of the switches (172.22.0.53):

%OSPF-4-FLOOD_WAR: Process 1 re-originates LSA ID 172.18.24.3 type-2 adv-rtr 172.22.0.53 in area 0

The two switches are using loopbacks 172.22.0.53 and 172.22.0.89, and are connected via a radio link.  Previously both switches were using Layer 3 vlan interfaces with their OSPF configs applied to those vlan interfaces, then the physical interfaces were added in this VLAN as a L2 interface.  The radio AP's were also within this vlan and not participating in OSPF.  Under this setup I was not getting these Flood War messages, but was having a spanning-tree issue which is why I removed the L3 vlan interfaces.

I changed the physical ports to routed ports and copied the L3 vlan interfaces over and removed the L3 vlans.  This is working, but now I'm getting these OSPF Flood war messages.  I didn't change any router ID's, and the IP's set on the L3 vlans were moved to the L3 routed ports so I'm not sure where the duplicate is coming from.  I've attached the configs of both switches.

Any ideas?

Hi

from url:-

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/ip/open-shortest-path-first-ospf/9237-9.html

Q. What does the error message %OSPF-4-FLOOD_WAR: Process process-id re-originates LSA ID ip address type-2 adv-rtr ip address in area area id means?

 

A. The error message is due to the some router that is flushing the network LSA because the network LSA received by the router whose LSA ID conflicts with the IP address of one of the router's interfaces and flushes the LSA out of the network. For OSPF to function correctly the IP addresses of transit networks must be unique. If it is not unique the conflicting routers reports this error message. In the error message the router with the OSPF router ID reported as adv-rtr reports this message.

Also on your 53 config

 

You have a paasive int on vlan 153 but that SVI does not exist , 133 does though

That's what I'm a bit

That's what I'm a bit confused on, the configs from the L3 vlan interfaces were simply moved to the physical ports, and then I removed the L3 vlans completely.  I've double checked the configs to make sure I didn't fat finger in the same IP on the physical interfaces but they are different - I'm not sure where the duplicate is coming from.

Hi,On router 53Try !int loop

Hi,

On router 53

Try 

!
int loop 0
shut
!
end


Then try 
ping 172.22.0.53

If you get a !!! response
Then try to find the address 172.22.0.53
with trace and sh ip route 172.22.0.53

It may just be you need to alllocate a different loop 0
ip address on your 53 router.

If there was a duplicate IP

If there was a duplicate IP then why weren't these log messages present before I made the config changes?  This will also cause a disruption in the network which I'm not really looking to do.

I found the duplicate IP

I found the duplicate IP address, it was on another switch as another L3 vlan but it wasn't even up.  The weird thing is that the switch sending these flood war messages had a power outage, and when it came back up it stopped sending the flood war messages.  The only reason I know for sure this is the cause is that I had 2 other switches doing the exact same thing and as soon as I removed the L3 vlan the flood war messages stopped on the other switch.
