Phy-link status is down in 6.3 instead of inactive



  • We recently upgraded from ScreenOS 6.2 to 6.3.0r3 and now our backup firewall interfaces that were previously showing (I) inactive are now showing (D) down.  We were polling the primary and backup firewall interfaces  so that if we failed over to the backup, we could make sure they had link and the backup interfaces would work.  Now it looks like there is no OID we can poll for to see if the interfaces on the backup are actually up or not.  Anyone else having this issue or know of a fix?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rich



  • Interface Administrative Status—ScreenOS 6.3.0 supports a command for
    setting an interface administrative status to the down state. By default, the
    administrative status of an interface is set as up. The administrator can disable
    the administrative status of an interface with the CLI:

    set interface xx disable
