Users are able to ping the disabled/disconnected interfaces IP-Address

Dear Team,

I am working on one issue with 4600 appliances in distributed and 13500 are cluster based setup.

When I tried to ping the IP-Address what is configured on disabled/disconnected interface were actually working. I am getting ICMP reply from the respective interface.

The surprising part is traffic was passing through an active interface. I confirmed, the IP is nowhere configured in my environment.


As per the sk41363 article, this is normal behavior due to weak ES (End System) model as described in RFC1122.

Note: I am managing those appliances in Gaia R77.30.

Please let me know Is it a normal behavior on Enterprise appliance and High-End appliance as well.

Regards,

ArunHari.R
