Dropping connection: Unexpected post SYN packet - RST or SYN expected

Let me attempt to shorten this as much as possible. 

Oracle smartview client gets random connection drops with this error. 

Here's the kicker. There are already rules in place to the same addresses that are being allowed through. So it's only a portion of this traffic that's having the issue.

In the logs it shows part of the traffic being accepted by anc access rule and the next one as dropped with no rule being referenced. 

Furthermore it's not occuring on all devices or locations... I'd say it's relegated to win 10 only but that also turns out to not be true either.

Hi Mike,

From what you have said and the drop message you are seeing, it may point to some asymmetric routing. 

Are you running a HA cluster? If so is it HA or load sharing?

So what i'm told from the system engineers (i'm just the sec guy) is that we do and it does, but they're not too sure that it's really utilized to such a capacity. 

I will check out the link you sent. 

Thank you.
