c7000 onboard administrator does icmp echo to default gateway

Hello,

 

Our newly installed c7000 blade enclosure with FW 3.32 OA does (every minute) ping (icmp echo) the default gateway.

We're having 2 OA's with fixed IP adresses. Features like Enclosure IP Mode or Link Loss failover are currently not enabled.

 

Is it possible to change this behavior?

Hi,

 

Please note the following OA commands:

 

ENABLE LLF
• Command: ENABLE LLF
• Description: Enables Link Loss Failover for Onboard Administrator Redundancy.
• Access level/Bay level: Operator, Administrator
• Restrictions: You must have OA permission to perform this command

 

ENABLE ENCLOSURE_IP_MODE
• Command: ENABLE ENCLOSURE_IP_MODE
• Description: Enables Enclosure IP Mode
• Access level/Bay level: OA administrator, Operator
• Restrictions: When using enclosure IP mode only replace the standby OA module while the enclosure is powered on to ensure persistence of Enclosure IP Mode settings.

Maybe it's this?

Unfortunately this doesn't help, the OA keeps sending icmp echo's to its default gateway

Re: c7000 onboard administrator does icmp echo to default gateway

Hi Team,

 

I am also facing the same issue. The blade controllers ADBLMG01 and ADBLMG02 sends continous ICMP requests to DNS server. According to the Security Policy this is not allowed. Can you please check this behaviour and let us know if it's possible to correct it? ICMP request frequency is approx 1minute. LLF is also enabled.

 

Someone suggested me to remove the DNS server entry from OA. Is it safe to do this change?

 

Kindly suggest.
