Router coup.

Mon Mar 5 13:35:21 PST 2001 — Router coup. As part of our move to a redundant configuration, a simple operation turned into a serious problem for about 3 minutes. Specifically, one of the USR Total Control dialup routers took control of our internal routing protocol, even though it was configured not to. The problem was detected within about 2 minutes and corrected within about a minute. Even more specifically, two routers with OSPF priorities of “127” and “96” were couped by a router with a priority of “5”. We’re still trying to figure out how that could have happened. -Scott and Dane
