Alert Type:
PSN - Product Support Notification
Product Affected:
MX, EX9200, PTX and QFX series routers running EVPN services
Alert Description:

EVPN routing-instances went through major internal design changes in the following JUNOS software versions. Due to software defects in this new implementation, a race condition can happen between two daemons consuming EVPN states while creating a new EVPN instance. This condition will result in the related L2 interfaces flap on any subsequent commits including unrelated changes. As a result of interfaces flap, the router will flood control plane messages causing major network events.
 

Trigger:

  • EVPN routing instance is configured
  • Any subsequent commit involving interface changes (AE/NON-AE with or without ESI) in EVPN routing instance or when both REs are rebooted at the same time.
Workaround: 

Manually restart the DCD process during MW to sync up BD index.

Affected JUNOS software releases:

  • 17.1R3 17.3R3-S3
  • 18.1R3-S2 18.1R3-S3
  • 18.2X75-D40
