Dual-Active detection Link Down on Virtual StackWise switches

Hello,

 

I am currently facing an issue on my Virtual StackWise switches.

 

We have two WS-C3850-48XS-E configured with Virtual Stackwise.

There are two Virtual Stackwise Links of 10G as part of the SVL domain 1.

There is one fiber link 1G for Dual Active detection. The protocol is Fast-Hello.

 

We recently lost the Fast-Hello Link. I'm not confident of letting the switches in this state because split brain can now occur.

 

I tried to fix the Fast-Hello link but it doesn't want to be in Up state. The fiber has been check between the switches.

 

Do you know if the only way to get this link up is through a reboot of the switches ?

 

Any help would be really appreciated. You can find below the configuration of the Stackwise Link.

 

Thank you

 

switch#sh stackwise-virtual dual-active-detection
Dual-Active-Detection Configuration:

TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44 is down, line protocol is down (notconnect)

Re: Dual-Active detection Link Down on Virtual StackWise switches

Hello Gabiche,

 

Have you already try bouncing (shut/no shut) interfaces TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44 and TenGigabitEthernet2/0/44? What about defaulting those two interfaces and re-configuring them as dual-active link?

 

conf t

 default interface TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44

 default interface TenGigabitEthernet2/0/44

 interface TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44

  stackwise-virtual dual-active-detection

  exit

 !

 interface TenGigabitEthernet2/0/44

  stackwise-virtual dual-active-detection

  end

!

If bouncing the those ports do not solve the problem, you'll have to reload/restart the switch. Is there are no issues with the stackwise virtual link, that should not be a problem.

 

Regards,

Hello Andres,

 

Thank you very much for your reply.

 

Unfortunately the switch doesn't accept neither the default command nor the shutdown command:

 

switch(config)#default interface t1/0/44
% Error, TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44 is a distributed stack inferface, default configuration will not be accepted

(misprint in the switch for "inferface" :) )

 

With the "no stackwise" command:

switch(config-if)#no stackwise-virtual dual-active-detection
WARNING: Stackwise Virtual Dual Active Detection Configuration for TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44 will be removed on reboot.
switch(config-if)#stackwise-virtual dual-active-detection
WARNING: All the extraneous configurations will be removed for TenGigabitEthernet1/0/44 on reboot.

 

switch(config)#int t1/0/44
switch(config-if)#shutdown
                            ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

So it seems the reboot is mandatory to include again a Dual-Active Detection link in the Virtual Stackwise.

The reboot seems understanding for a Virtual Stackwise Link, but I would have not expect this for the Fast Hello Link.

 

By the way, I will take advantage of the reboot operation to add a second Fast-Hello link with a different Fiber path and avoid this situation again.

 

I will keep you informed after the reboot and close this thread in the meantime.

 

Thank you !

Hi Gabiche,

 

Do you solved this DAD issue ? Could you remove physical DAD interfaces? I have a similar issue using virtual stackwise and DAD : i have some ports that i would like to dissasociate from DAD but systems does not allow.

Re: Dual-Active detection Link Down on Virtual StackWise switches

Hello,

 

The only way to remove / include a DAD link or a SVL is to reboot the entire core (both 3850).

 

Concerning my issue, it may have been solved with the newest OS release.

 

Please note that I did not find this issue with 9500 serie switch.
