RIP v2 stops working

  • Hi Guys,

    I have a few pfsense 2.0.1 machines deployed in a virtual hosting environment. Each pf VM has three NICs, WAN, LAN and OPT1 for backup traffic to a central site. The OPT1 network has RIP v2 enabled as the routing protocol, and for the most part works perfectly.

    On ONE particular PF VM every so often the routing table loses all it's RIP attained routes.. The only resolution that i've been able to determine is either A) Reboot PFsense or B) Disable/Re-enable RIPv2.. obviously option B is what I choose. This only happens once or twice a month but since it basically breaks daily backups until someone notices it's a little annoying.

    All of the PF VMs are clones of each other with randomized MAC addresses. None of the other VMs have this issue (there are around 10).

    Any ideas, anything I can look for?
