Error description

  • v3.9 - FP1, FP2 & FP3 -platform independent
    
    VirtualIP of VRRP assigned as main chassis IP when it should
    not.
    
    During stitching the stitcher 'ResolveVRRPAssocAddresses.stch'
    that processes all records from NokiaVRRP & other agents is
    supposed to find MasterIp and make that as BaseAddress if we
    have found the device in the discovery Phase1 using Virtual IP
    Address, but it does not do that extensive check, resulting
    mainnode base address with Virtual IPAddress.
    

Local fix

  • Exclude all VirtualIPs using PingFilter.

Problem conclusion

  • Modified code in ResolveVRRPAssocAddresses.stch to check for the
    VRRP IPs. If we detect that the VRRP being used as workAddress
    (management address) for the device, we will find the physical
    IP and update it into ipToBaseName table as well as update the
    uniqueAddress in all agents returns (except the
    Details.returns).
