Duplicate node found for * feature at * operation

Hello,

I found in the firewall logs the following error messages:

Duplicate node found for arp feature at delete operation
Duplicate node found for vpn feature at show operation
Duplicate node found for router-options feature at show operation
Duplicate node found for arp feature at add operation
Duplicate node found for arp feature at delete operation
Duplicate node found for router-options feature at show operation
Duplicate node found for vpn feature at show operation

Does anyone know why or what action generated them? Thank you!

I would assume that these come from Advanced routing (RouteD - PIM, BGP...).

Could you share with us more information about the problem at hand please? For instance:

  1. What is the version of your firewall?
  2. Did you get the logs in question while you attempted to carry out a particular task (like running a script or using the mgmt api)? If so, did you encounter any errors at all?
  3. Do you have a screenshot of the relevant firewall logs?
  4. Are you trying to achieve something specific or is it more of a case of being curious about what the said logs mean?

Thanks.

These look like Gaia OS errors that suggest some duplicate entries in the configuration database.

Hmmm, if that is the case, and the gateway is R77.30, I guess we could find out by navigating to Menu >> Manage >> Network Objects >> More >> Refine by: Duplicates.

Unsure whether a similar functionality exists on R80.x as I struggle to find it. In my experience, duplicate objects sometimes have one copy unused so mgmt_cli show unused-objects might help.

Happy to hear a more straightforward way for R80.x versions.

In R80+ management to find duplicate objects, bring up the Objects Explorer window (from the Objects menu on the upper-left of the SmartConsole, or from the "bulleted list" icon directly above the objects list sidebar on the right, or just hit CNTRL-E), then in the upper-left of the resulting window click on "All" and change it to "Unused Objects".

No, I was referring to Gaia OS configuration, not anything in SmartConsole.
Might be worth a TAC case.

The version is R77.30. There was no failure of functionality, just noticed the errors in the log files.

I found some duplicate IPs and eliminated them. I will check if the errors will appear again in the logs.
