Frame Relay: dynamic map created even when arp is disabled.

I am studying for the CCIE R&S lab exam after having successfully passed the written. I just completed physically setting up my lab and am now working through various study material. I am currently working through Solie's "CCIE Practical Studies volume 1" and have run into some problems with Lab 13 on page 370.

Routers scotts_house and mini_me are creating dynamic mappings to starbucks_90210 even though I have configured the serial interfaces with "no frame-relay inverse-arp" and "no arp frame-relay". I have issued "clear frame-relay inarp" but the mappings eventually return. I have rebooted the routers but the mappings eventually appear.

Here are the partial configs. r2 is scotts_house. r3 is mini_me and r4 is starbucks_90210.

Re: Frame Relay: dynamic map created even when arp is disabled.

Bruno,

I believe the problem you are seeing here is that the InvARP entries have been created before you configured the frame-relay map statements. Therefore, issue the 'clear frame-relay inarp' command to clear those entries.

The entries will no longer be created the next time you reload the router.

Hope that helps - pls do remember to rate posts that help.

One other thing, the 'no arp frame-relay' does not impact Inverse-ARP at all so it's really redundant config.

Paresh,

I have issued 'clear frame-relay inarp' but the dynamic mappings keep returning. I have gone so far as to erase the nvram, re-configure the interfaces w/ "no frame-relay inverse-arp" and then issued a "no shut" and the dynamic mappings still appear.

I have gone to the starbucks_90210 router and entered "no frame-relay inverse-arp IP 402" and "no frame-relay inverse-arp IP 403" on the serial interface and now the dynamic mappings do not happen.

Does inverse-arp need to be disabled at both ends? I would have thought that disabling on one router would make that router not create dynamic maps.

Bruno,

I should have mentioned that it needs to be disabled at both ends.

Even if one end has inv-arp disabled, that does not stop it listening to and responding to InvARPs received from the other end.

Remove it at both ends and you will be right.
