Server SAPs stopped w/Cisco routers

Server SAPs stopped w/Cisco routers

Post by Al Harkrade » Sun, 20 Apr 1997 04:00:00

We've got a WAN of Cisco routers that connects 26 Netware 3.12 servers.
The servers are Compaq Proliant 1000/1500s; the Ciscos are 25xx models
running 11.1.6 or better; we're using IPX EIGRP to limit SAPs between

Occasionally (once/week), one of the servers stops sending SAPs on its
Ethernet.  When we use track to see what it is doing, it is continuously
SAPing the INTERNAL network (like, *whoosh* on the track display, if you
know what I mean).  It is still responding to GNS & route requests, so
the local users are fine, but no one can attach from across the WAN --
so mail doesn't get distributed, etc.

This never happened before we replaced our LAN2LAN network with Cisco
routers.  We've heard thir*th-hand reports that this is a well-known
problem but can't find anything about it (TID 2906058 is the right
symptom but that's about all).  Anybody got any advice?

1. Public NTP Servers Stop Working on Cisco Router


I have been using a few public time servers, and they all seem to stop
working after a period of time.  I have my Cisco router set to synchronize
to two separate public NTP servers ( and, and eventually, both servers stop responding
and the router loses NTP synchronization.  I have to delete the NTP servers
from the router configuration and re-add them to get things to start working
again.  Also, unless I specify the "ntp master" option in the Cisco router
configuration, the router itself eventually stops responding to NTP

Does anybody have any ideas why this might be happening?  I just want to
have the router synchronize to a few sources and then have all my inside
hosts synchronize to the router.  I would greatly appreciate any help
anybody can give me.  Also, I would appreciate it if you could copy your
response to me via email.
