If some one has come across this please help us.
Everytime I add a new VLAN to my EAPS ring it loops. Then i have to struggle to get it working. I delete ports in the new VLAN, add them again and it works. This happens only on my older version of code switches (126.96.36.199). When i do this on 12.6.2 there are no issues whatsoever.
I have done this atleast 50 times and I am really good with EAPS configuration. There are no configuration issues (debug eaps check config passes tooo).
This is the order I follow to add vlan to an existing eaps ring,
1) Create new vlan
2) add eaps ports as tagged
3) add VLAN as a protected VLAN to EAPS domain
Now, when i am at STEP 3 : the switch throws a warning that eaps ports do no exist on those vlans which makes me think that older version of code does not like the fact that you added the eaps ports to the VLAN first before adding the vlan as a protected vlan in the EAPS domain. It simply disregards your vlan port changes but then if it really does than it should not loop in first place.
Anyone running into similar issues?
Any input would be really helpful as I have to add some more VLANs to the production network soon.
