OSPF hello message received on outgoing interface

I've set up OSPF on a couple of FortiGate-VM64-HV where everything seem to be working fine.
Routes show up in routing table and neighborhood comes up as normal.
output are somewhat sanitized. 

 

Neighbor ID Pri State Dead Time Address Interface
10.10.48.1 255 Full/DR 00:00:32 10.10.48.1 port1
192.168.2.1 1 Full/DROther 00:00:33 10.10.48.3 port1

 

 

Problem I get a log of log messages saying:

 

OSPF: RECV[Hello]: duplicate router-id 192.168.3.1 detected on port2:192.168.3.1

 

 

When debugging it seems like the vFirewall reacts to the hello packet it sent itself.

I do not seem the have the same behavior on a physical unit. 

 

A bug, or something misconfigured?

Have tried changing router-id, as well as rebooted the firewalls. 

 

As said everything works, but log gets spammed unnecessarily.

Hi @Qwiri,

 

Is FortiGate in HA mode? Can you make sure there is no loop in your network? Please run packet sniffer command below:

 

diagnose sniffer packet any "proto 89" 4 0 l 

 

Regards,

The virtual ones that have this behavior are single units.

 

I'll do a capture later tonight. Almost sure the prior capture didn't show from itself came into the wan interface.

Here is a snippet from one of the vFirewalls. 

The firewall have three ports,

Port1 10.10.48.5
Port2 192.168.3.1
Port3 10.11.166.1

I can see some strange packets like this one, 
2024-02-03 11:35:31.301644 port1 out 10.10.48.5 -> 224.0.0.5: ip-proto-89 52

Do not see other signs of loop as we se no degradation in the network. Also
A packet capture from the Physical unit do not seem to have the same problem. that is to say
I see no duplicates.

A quick test with the VM-ware version did not show the same problem.
I'll se if I can set it up in Hyper-V in my labb.

Hi @hbac 

I have taken a look in Wireshark at a capture and it seems like something can be funky with the Hyper-V virtual switch.

From vFW 1:

No.TimeSourceDestinationProtocolLengthSourceIdentification

9

15.99705910.10.48.5224.0.0.5OSPF8600:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx0xfa8a (64138)

1219.86002410.10.48.3224.0.0.5OSPF86zz:zz:zz:zz:zz:zz0xed1c (60700)

 

Source here shows No. 11 as Microsoft and 12 as Mellanox, that is the physical NIC for the host.

No. 9 and 10 are show as Microsoft and is another host where the vm is located.  

 

From vFW 2 (not same timeframe):

No.TimeSourceDestinationProtocolLengthIdentificationSource
1319.99101710.10.48.5224.0.0.5

OSPF

890x52d9 (21209)xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

1625.98791010.10.48.3224.0.0.5OSPF890x44a3 (17571)zz:zz:zz:zz:zz:zz

 

Same here, I see double entries with the same identification. 
No.13 and 14 are the vFirewall I got the capture from, showing same identity on two different MAC:s, one Microsoft, and one with no name identifier.
In the first table this match No. 9 and 10, but have changed from showing same MAC as source, to two different MAC (even with same identifyer)

 

N15 and 16 are from same vFirewall as No.10 and 12 in the table above. 
Here the source have changed from being two different MAC:s, to show the same MAC. 

 

I also see the same doubles for the main Fortigate (physical). 

 

I'm not sure this would be due to a loop as there is always only two of on packet, and always shortly after the first. 
Also source changes depending on the capture point. Two different source when getting packet originating from firewall where capture are taken, and same source when it's from another host.

I can also not see these double packets on the physical Fortigate. Here it is different identifyer per hello as it should be. What I can see is one hello from the Microsoft MAC, and one hello from the host MAC (Mellanox or the one where manufacturer isn't named) 

 

I hope I haven't misunderstood the identity field in a packet and that is shows on duplicate packets.

All of this is in at L2 level. 
Don't have a design at hand, but can make one at work later. 
Also going to ask the Hyper-V guys tomorrow if they have any ideas.
