I have a Summit extreme router and I've recently been receiving the following error:

<WARN:ESRP> edp.c 2892: PREMASTER-->Master : VLAN=Buyers1 [HIGHER Priority]
<WARN:ESRP> edp.c 2780: MASTER-->slave : VLAN=Buyers1 [Master PDU in master state]
<WARN:RIP > ripDeleteRt: SIOCDELRT (S_objLib_OBJ_TIMEOUT)

It's giving the first two errors on every vlan I have.

My entire network usually starts to lose connectivity. The only thing that has changed lately is someone put a NAT policy on our firewall to point to a 192.168.225.x IP address. Would this cause this error? Also, what does the error mean?

OK, I undid the NAT policy and still received the error message this morning. When I got here I shtudown the port for the new device that was added to the network. I'm going to wait all day to make sure I don't get the error message anymore, before I blame it on the device! Do you think assigning the device a legacy IP address caused these issues? –  Jacob Sep 4 '09 at 16:50

These messages are because the master was failing over to the slave switch. The slave switch was sending out tons of TX errors. I'm thinking the slave was sending out bad ESRP request too, making the master look like it was failing. The slave was sending out so many TX errors and that's the reason my network was losing connectivity.

I unhooked the slave and disabled ESRP. I've recently replaced both of the switches and stress level/power usage is down.

I read that last night. I undid the recent changes that were made to the network, and if this doesn't work I'm going to restart the router. Thanks. –  Jacob Sep 4 '09 at 13:18
