I've noticed it mostly in lower-end models like MX68's and MX84's - but there are simply more of these.
Only had to investigate routed mode configurations so far.
Hi @PhilipDAth , yep, this was the same issue that a friend of mine ran into a couple of weeks back and was getting the run around.
They were running 15.44 code, 15.42.3 and 15.42 all with issues namely their auto VPNs dropping every few hours.
@PhilipDAth : Good information sir
I have a mx100 HA pair that is not showing anything in logs with vrrp. Just registry up/down.
I have two mx400 HA pairs going to 15.44 this week and next......🤔
>I have two mx400 HA pairs going to 15.44 this week and next
Let me know how the MX400's go ... I have another customer with a lot of sites hanging off it, and I'm very nervous about letting their upgrade proceed.
Their MX400's are used exclusively for AutoVPN. The others I have been investigating so far all use routed mode and do have Internet traffic flowing through them.
>I have a mx100 HA pair that is not showing anything in logs with vrrp.
@Aaron_Wilson , are they being used for Internet access as well, or only AutoVPN?
Autovpn comes in over internet (wan). But any traffic destine for the internet heads south, not hairpin.
@PhilipDAth- had a MX400 HA pair upgrade last night. I'll just explain the deployment:
Old firmware was a 14.x flavor
This is a DC head-end. Auto-vpn comes in from the north (internet), all internet and non-Meraki traffic heads south into the DC core. All Meraki destine traffic heads back north to other hubs/spokes.
Warm spare, however it is an east/west direct connection (yea yea, I know).
It's been almost 12 hours and the only VRRP transition was during the upgrade. There were some ethernet port carrier logs about 10 minutes later, but it was only a few logged on the primary and have since subsided.
Here is the logs for the location. I filtered on VRRP and port given all the other boring registry stuff that gets logged.
Please post follow up if/when you proceed with 15.44 on the mx400s. I've been holding off on my mx400 HA pair upgrade, due mostly to procrastination. But seeing this discussion, I am glad I procrastinated.
@TEAM-indI did go to 15.44 on one set of MX400, so far so good.
I have another set going in a week.
