20.2R2-S2 - List of Fixed issues
PR Number Synopsis Category: EX4300 VC implementation
1526493 EX4300-48MP device might go out of service during a software upgrade operation
On EX4300-48MP platform, when a software upgrade operation is issued, the storage available for the Junos virtual Machine(VM), at the hypervisor level, can fall low. This can result in the Junos VM going into a hung or paused state. A reboot of the device is required to restore service on the device.

1555679 The ARP packets from the CE device are added with VLAN tag if the VLAN-ID is configured in the EVPN routing instance.
On the ACX5448/ACX710 series platforms working as PEs in an EVPN scenario, if 'vlan-id none' is configured for an EVPN routing instance, ARP packets received from CEs or hosts within this EVPN instance may not be encapsulated properly on the ACX devices, causing failed traffic connectivity between CEs/hosts.
1559084 On the ACX5448 router, the unicast packets from the CE devices might be forwarded by the PE devices with additional VLAN tag if IRB is used.
On ACX5448 in EVPN-MPLS scenario with IRB configured, if vlan-id none is configured in the EVPN instance, when unicast packets from CE to remote CE are received at ACX5448, additional VLAN tag is added by ACX5448 while forwarding the same on the core link. There is traffic loss due to this issue.

On QFX5K platforms with 19.4R1 release, the Egress ACL filter entries will be only 512 instead of 1022. If we configure an Egress PACL/RACL/VACL filter more than 512 terms, the filter might not be installed.
PR Number Synopsis Category: SW PRs for SCBE3 fabric
1553641 The fabric errors are observed and the FPC processes might get offlined with SCBE3, MPC3E-NG, or MPC3E and MPC7 or MPC10 in the increased-bandwidth fabric mode.
On MX240/MX480/MX960 platforms, with default "increased-bandwidth" fabric mode and SCBE3, if we have MPC3 or MPC3-NG exist on the system along with high bandwidth MPC, during high traffic situation or bursty traffic through the fabric towards MPC3/MPC3-NG. MX fabric might report unreachable destination condition and causes fabric healing to trigger in. This issue is exacerbated when having MPC7 or MPC10 line cards installed due to high fabric bandwidth that can be generated.

The device crashes whenever there is a malformed IPV6 packet hitting it. Bad IPV6 packet meaning some IPv6 packet with invalid options, or if the length of the packet is less than minimum. RE is seen to reboot post the core dump.
PR Number Synopsis Category: JUNOS Network App Infrastructure (for ping, traceroute, etc)
1463622 The cosmetic error messages of NTP time synchronization might be seen during device booting
In NTP with the boot-server scenario, when the router or switch boots, the NTP daemon sends ntpdate request to poll the configured NTP boot-server to determine the local date and time. If the ntpdate is not activated correctly while the device is booting, the ntpdate might not work successfully. Then, some cosmetic error messages of time synchronization might be seen, but there is no impact with time update because the NTP daemon will update the time eventually.

991081 The configuration change on Backup RE cannot be synchronized while deleting inactivated interfaces/routing-instances from master
In the dual Routing Engine scenario, the backup Routing Engine does not sync up the configuration change while deleting an inactivated interface/routing-instances from the master. So after the operation, the inactivated interface/routing-instances still exists on the backup Routing Engine.
1543037 The license errors may get returned on backup RE when trying to commit the configuration
On all Junos platforms, when trying to commit the configuration, license errors may get returned on backup RE even though the license is installed correctly. This issue doesn't have any service impact.
PR Number Synopsis Category: Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol
1558560 Junos device might send VRRP advertisement packets in VRRP init or idle state before startup-silent-period timer expiry after performing GRES on VRRP master device with NSR disabled
If VRRP master device has dual Routing Engines (REs) and GRES enabled but nonstop-routing (NSR) disabled, after performing GRES, both REs will move to VRRP init then idle state and the new master RE will send VRRP advertisement packets in this stage before startup-silent-period timer expiry. Since the VRRP backup device can still receive the VRRP advertisement packets with higher priority, it will not transition to VRRP master state and hence cause the longer traffic downtime until the VRRP master device re-take the VRRP mastership after startup-silent-period timer expiry.
