I just took out a 7206 by applying ip verify unicast reverse-path to a T3
link on a PA2T3 and attempting to spoof packets from the POP on the other
end of that T3.
The 7206 is running c7200-inu-mz.111-25.CC. Fortunately, it rebooted
after it crashed.
System restarted by bus error at PC 0x605F88CC, address 0x10024 at
20:29:49 UTC Wed Jul 28 1999
This router had been up over 8 weeks without a crash (ever since Cisco
replaced the previous 7206 in this POP that was either posessed or a
lemon). The memory is Cisco memory. All the parts came directly from
Is this known to be unstable in 111-25.CC? Is it known to be stable in
some other release that supports the PAT3, PA2T3, and PA-MCT3?
