The tunnel interface is down due to recursive routing. The user receives the "TUN-RECURDOWN Interface Tunnel 0 temporarily disabled due to recursive routing" error message
If the tunnel interface learns that the best path to the tunnel destination is through the tunnel itself, the interface shuts down temporarily.
A recursive routing error occur when router does route look up for Prefix A points at prefix B and a lookup for prefix B points at prefix A.This problem can be easily identify by IOS message "%TUN-5-RECURDOWN: Tunnel0 temporarily disabled".Another symptom of this problem is continuously flapping of EIGRP,OSPF,or BGP neighbors, when the neighbors are over a GRE tunnel.
To avoid recursive routing problems, keep passenger and transport network routing information disjointed with one of these methods:
->Use a different Autonomous System (AS) number or tag. ->Use a different routing protocol. ->Use static routes to override the first hop, but watch for routing loops. For more information, refer to the Special Considerations section of Configuring Logical Interfaces.
