ACI Fabric start learning external remote IP’s locally on the Leaf switches . Due to this reason, traffic is locally dropped on Leaf Sw03 instead of going outside the fabric. This issue basically interrupted most of the External & Internal services because (ACI firewall IP’s and External LB IP’s plus additional IP’s from HQ and Branch Network) are learning on the Leaf switch03 & 04 Endpoint table.

 

Please find below the EndPoint table as under:

 

LFSW03# show endpoint ip 10.x.x.1xx

Legend:

s - arp              O - peer-attached    a - local-aged       S - static         

 V - vpc-attached     p - peer-aged        M - span             L - local          

 B - bounce           H - vtep

Hi @balbaletabrez 

If you learn the EP locally it means that traffic is received locally with the Source IP of those IP, or ARPs where generated by the IP addresses.

To be able to help you, we need definitely more details:

What do you mean "external remote IP"? Where are these IP's addresses located (L3Out/different EPG/etc)? 

What is connected on 1/27?  How is configured that interface (static EPG port, SG, VMM etc)? Which IP addresses are expected to be learned locally and which are not? As you can see, all the IP addresses are sourced from one single mac address: 0000.0000.69b6. This most probably means that the endpoint owning 0000.0000.69b6 is doing routing: it receives traffic from whatever source, and is routing back to gateway.  I would start by verifying why the endpoint was routing traffic back.

Anyway, the best solution in this scenarios is to enable Tenant > Networking > Bridge Domains > BD > "Limit IP Learning To Subnet" This is a per-BD feature.

There is a second option: Enforce Subnet Check - which is fabric wide and can be enabled from System > System settings.

I would suggest to read about both features and apply the most convenient to you: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/solutions/collateral/data-center-virtualization/application-centric-infrastructure/white-paper-c11-739989.html
