Next hop inaccessible for Palo Alto Networks

Vendor

Palo Alto Networks

Description

Indeni will review the routing table and identify when a next hop router is showing as FAILED or INCOMPLETE in the ARP table.

Remediation Steps

Determine why the next hops are not responding.

Log into the device over SSH and review the output of "show arp" to identify failures.

How does this work?

This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current routing table (the equivalent of running "show routing route" in CLI).

Why is this important?

This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current routing table (the equivalent of running "show routing route" in CLI).

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator would be able to poll this data through SNMP but additional external logic would be required to correlate the static routes table across cluster members.
