Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D60

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • On branch SRX Series devices, the flowd process crashes and generates a core dump while processing MS-RPC or SUN-RPC traffic on the secondary node. PR1190929
  • On SRX Series devices, MSRPC ALG cannot decrypt encrypted EPM messages (authentication level RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT_PRIVACY ) and drops the encrypted EPM messages. The new behavior bypasses such encrypted messages and generates a syslog message. PR1192477
  • On branch SRX Series devices, when the RSH ALG is enabled manually, the RSH ALG receives a message whose stderr port is 0, RSH ALG will drop packets and will not open gate for it. PR1196530
  • On SRX Series devices, RSH client communicates with the RSH server. The RSH ALG is enabled and the RSH client transfers the file to the RSH server. Some last packets from the RSH server are not forwarded to the RSH client. PR1202773

Chassis Cluster

  • On branch SRX Series devices in chassis cluster, when the 1-Port GE High-Perf SFP mPIM is used as the fabric port, the port is reported as up but traffic is not forwarded. PR1184731
  • On branch SRX Series devices, under the output of show chassis craft-interface node 0/1 command , the Front Panel HA Indicator: does not show the correct LED status. PR1189006
  • On branch SRX Series devices in chassis cluster, the fabric link flaps randomly after upgrading to the Junos OS Release 12.1X46 and higher. PR1197954

Flow-based and Packet-based Processing

  • On branch SRX Series devices, the RSH client communicates with RSH server. RSH ALG is enabled. RSH client transfers file to RSH server. Some last packets from the RSH server are not forwarded to the RSH client. PR1202773

Interfaces and Routing

  • On SRX210, SRX220, SRX240, and SRX650 devices, the flowd process might crash while configuring the 1x Gigabit Ethernet high-performance SFP Mini-PIM interface on the reth interface. PR1182981

Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP)

  • On branch SRX Series devices, the flowd process might crash on both the nodes after the IDP database update and causes the traffic to be interrupted. PR1202319

J-Web

  • On SRX Series devices, after using J-Web, CPU utilization on the routing engine might stay high and does not recover. PR1201267
  • On branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, J-Web does not show correct chassis cluster status in the following page: J-Web: Monitor->System view->cluster status. PR1208901

Platform and Infrastructure

  • On branch SRX Series devices, one or multiple J-Web sessions are established in the browser. After navigating different tabs and multiple PHP processes are remained. This causes high CPU usage on RE. PR1186172
  • On SRX Series devices, a vulnerability in IPv6 processing has been discovered that might allow a specially crafted IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND) packet to be accepted by the router rather than discarded. The crafted packet, destined to the router, will then be processed by the routing engine (RE). A malicious network-based packet flood, sourced from beyond the local broadcast domain, can cause the RE CPU to spike, or cause the DDoS protection ARP protocol group policer to engage. When this happens, the DDoS policer might start dropping legitimate IPv6 neighbors as legitimate ND times out. Refer to JSA10749 for more information. PR1191838
  • On branch SRX Series devices, packets passing arriving on MPLS LSP may be sent out-of-order post SRX processing. PR1213699

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D55

Chassis Cluster

  • On all SRX Series devices in chassis cluster mode, when some configuration needs to be changed, after issuing the CLI commit confirm (the time parameter value can be between 1-65535) and commit command on the primary node, the secondary node does not commit. PR1171366

Class of Service (CoS)

  • On multi-thread SRX Series devices, when an interface is down, a timing issue in which one thread releases the interface resource (because the interface is down), but another thread tries to access this interface resource might occur, which results in a flowd process crash. PR1148796

Flow-based and Packet-based Processing

  • On branch SRX Series devices, in certain situations, flow sessions do not correctly timeout. This leads to the flow sessions being set to an abnormally high value increasing invalidate session counts, which eventually leads to the session table becoming full. PR1110256

IP Monitoring

  • On SRX240 devices, when you use the 1-Port GE High-Perf SFP Mini-PIM, the port is reported as up but traffic is not forwarded. PR1184731

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D50

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • On all SRX Series devices with MS-RPC ALG enabled, in heavy MS-RPC traffic environment, ALG traffic might fail because of the ASL groups being used up. PR1120757
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, when SCCP traffic is processed by SCCP ALG, the flowd process might crash. PR1154987

Chassis Cluster

  • On all SRX Series devices in chassis clusters, when you configure the MAC address on the reth interface using the set interfaces reth* mac * command, all reth member interfaces use the manually specified MAC address. When you use the deactivate interfaces reth* mac command, the reth interface will change to the default MAC address, but the reth member interfaces will remain in the manually specified MAC address. This scenario causes traffic issues on the reth interface. PR1115275
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is not supported on reth interfaces. PR1146382
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, if the control plane RG0 and data plane RG1+ failover simultaneously, the reth interface on the new master node might send Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) packets in an unexpected delay of approximate 11 seconds. This causes a temporary traffic outage. PR1148248

General Routing

  • On SRX Series device configured as a DHCP server, the device will not send DHCP option 125 unless the DHCP client requests it. This behavior does not comply to the RFC definition. According to RFC 3925, the DHCP server should send option 125 without the client's request. PR1116940

Interfaces and Routing

  • On branch SRX Series devices, if a configuration pertaining to a 3G interface is present and if a 3G modem is not connected to the device, Junos OS might try to access the 3G thread. As a result, the device might crash when the device cannot find the 3G thread. PR1151904
  • On SRX550 devices, some LLC frames might get dropped if they are received on a VPLS-enabled interface. PR1160561

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • The vrf-table-label statement makes it possible to map the inner label to a specific Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF), such mapping allows the examination of the encapsulated IP header at an egress VPN router. But on all J Series and SRX Series devices, the vrf-table-label statement is supported only on physical interfaces. As requested, it will be supported over aggregated interfaces. PR1131215

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D45

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • On all SRX Series devices with the H.323 ALG enabled, if dual NAT (the packets in the same call receive different NAT rules bidirectionally) is enabled, then the destination NAT for the payload is skipped during ALG processing. For example, the address payload in the H.225 gatekeeper confirm packet is not translated by the H.323 ALG. PR1100638
  • On all branch SRX Series device with DNS proxy enabled, any configuration change related to DNS service will trigger the named process restart. There is a timing issue such that the configuration at the system services dns dns-proxy hierarchy might not be loaded after the named process restart. PR1113056

Chassis Cluster

  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, the command set protocols lldp interface all will configure LLDP protocol on reth interface as well. While reth interface is not supported. PR1127960

Flow-Based and Packet-Based Processing

  • On SRX240, SRX550, and SRX650 devices with integrated user firewall authentication configured, when you attempt to remove the user entry from the authentication table, the flowd process might crash. PR1078801
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a GRE over IPsec VPN scenario, if the VPN is deactivated on one side, the out interface of the GRE session on the other side changes to the default route out interface and does not resume to the secure tunnel (st0) interface even though the VPN is activated. PR1113942
  • On all J-Series devices, in a rare condition, the system might access inappropriate pointer during a forwarding table update, which results in the flowd process crash. PR1140188

J-Web

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when you add multiple address books in one commit using J-Web, if a subsequently added address book matches the substring of a previously added address book, then the subsequently added address book is considered to be a duplicate of the previously added address book. . As a result, the subsequently added address book overwrites the previously added address book. PR1121743
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a J-Web configuration, the statuses of the RSH ALG and the SQL ALG are incorrect, They are inconsistent with the correct statuses confirmed by CLI. PR1128789

Layer 2 Ethernet Services

  • On all SRX Series devices, if the device acts as the interface of the DHCP server using the jdhcpd process (JDHCP) and if the DHCP client sends a discover message with a requested IP address, then the authd process uses the requested IP address to find the pool with priority. This causes the device to assign an IP address from an incorrect DHCP pool to the DHCP client when there is a DHCP pool that shares the same subnet with the requested IP address. However, it is not the expected pool of the DHCP client. PR1097909
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, if both the DHCP client and DHCP server (using the jdhcpd process) are enabled, changing the DHCP related configuration might cause the jdhcpd process to be exited unexpectedly. PR1118286

Network Management and Monitoring

  • On all SRX Series devices, using point-to-multipoint (P2MP) VPN and static routes with next-hop IP that is in the st0.x subnet, are incorrectly marked as active before the VPN tunnel establishment. PR1042462

Platform and Infrastructure

  • On all SRX Series devices, when SNMPv3 privacy and authentication passwords are set and updated, NSM fails to push the update to the device that is managed by NSM. PR1075802
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the setting of Real-time Performance Monitoring (RPM) next-hop metric value does not take effect. PR1087753

Switching

  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, if Ethernet switching is configured, because of a timing issue on the swfab interface initialization, the Layer 2 traffic might be dropped after a Redundancy Group 0 (RG0) failover. PR1103227

User Interface and Configuration

  • On all SRX Series devices, when you commit the traffic selector (TS) configuration, it might fail and an ffp core file might be generated. PR1089676

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, in group VPN setups, memory might leak during the gksd and gkmd processes. PR1098704
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, IPsec VPN using ESP encapsulation over group VPN is not supported. As a result, the IPsec VPN traffic will be dropped as bad SPI packets in the group VPN. PR1102816
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, if redundant VPN tunnels are set up to use two different external interfaces within two different IKE gateways to connect to the same VPN peer, and RPM is configured for route failover, and VPN monitoring is configured, the following scenario occurs: When the primary link is down, the VPN fails over to the secondary link as expected. However, when the primary link comes back up, VPN flapping might occur and there might be a delay in establishing the primary VPN tunnel. PR1109372

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D40

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with NAT configured, a memory overwrite issue occurs when the scaling RAS or H.323 traffic passes through the device and the device fails to perform NAT for RAS or H.323 traffic. As a result, the flowd process might crash. PR1084549
  • On all SRX Series devices, if the RSH ALG is enabled, the device does not drop the packets that match the port range of the RSH ALG.PR1093558

Chassis Cluster

  • On SRX550 and SRX650 devices, 20 to 40 percent traffic loss is seen on the port of the SRX-GP-2XE-SFP-PTX after changing the speed from 10 GB to 1 GB. This issue is seen in both fiber and copper mode. When you switch between fiber and copper mode on the port of the SRX-GP-2XE-SFP-PTX, the speed might vary within the configuration. PR1033369
  • On SRX550, if non-chassis cluster traffic is received on chassis cluster control port (fxp1), the traffic will be incorrectly forwarded out of the fabric port (fab) and the management port (fxp0). PR1041085
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, if sampling is configured with the input option on an interface, the non-first fragmented packets are dropped on the secondary node. This occurs when the fragmented packets enter the interface, traverse through the fabric interface, and finally are sent out through the secondary node (z mode). PR1054775
  • On SRX100, SRX110, and SRX210 devices, when you use Sierra Wireless USB 3G modem to connect to the network, Junos Space (or other Network Management devices) might fail to discover the SRX Series devices. This is because the Sierra Wireless USB 3G modem generates a duplicate address that causes the failure. PR1070898
  • On SRX650 Series devices, if the Copper SFP-T connector is inserted in 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet SFP XPIM (8xSFP GPIM), the link state might not come up. PR1074937
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, the H.323 ALG might not work properly after the chassis cluster failover. This is because the ALG binding synchronization message fails to synchronize the secondary device. PR1082934
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when any of the two possible power supplies (PS) is missing on the SRX650 device, it does not generate the alarm. In addition, the device is checking if any of the two power supplies is functioning correctly to provide the result in the output of the show chassis craft-interface command. However, for the status of the power supply, the output of the show chassis craft-interface is PS 0 instead of PS. PR1104842

Class of Service (CoS)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with CoS configured on a high-speed interface for multiple queues, if one queue is oversubscribed, the traffic on this queue is not dropped. However, traffic is dropped for other queues that have a specific bandwidth available. PR1068288

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with a DHCPv6 client configured, when the device tries to obtain an IPv6 address through the DHCPv6 prefix delegation, the device forms an incorrect IPv6 address format. As a result, the IPv6 address allocation fails. PR1084269

Flow-Based and Packet-Based Processing

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with IP-in-IP tunnel configured, due to incorrect configuration (routing loop caused by route change and so on), packets might be encapsulated by the IP-in-IP tunnel several times. As a result, packets are corrupted and the flowd process might crash. PR1055492
  • On SRX240, SRX550, SRX650, SRX1400, SRX3400, SRX3600, SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 devices, in a rare condition, the session might be doubly released by multiple threads during internal processing by the NAT module. As a result, the flowd process crashes. PR1058711
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the link-local packets of IPv4 (169.254.0.0/16) and IPv6 (fe80::/10) will be dropped. And there is no configuration option to change this behavior to forward the link-local packets. PR1078931
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, if 1:1 sampling is configured for J-Flow and the device processes a high volume of traffic, a race condition of an infinite loop of J-Flow entry might be encountered. As a result, the flowd process crashes. PR1088476
  • On all branch RX Series devices, the inactivity-timeout value of predefined junos-defaults applications cannot be changed, although it is configured with a value of approximately 10,000.PR1093629
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the maximum-sessions value is not displayed correctly. PR1094721

Infrastructure

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with health monitor configured for routing-engine, the system health management process (syshmd) might crash due to a memory corruption in some rare conditions, such as in the scenario that concurrent conflicting manipulation of the file system occurs. PR1069868

Interfaces and Routing

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the 4G USB modem would not redial automatically while it is used to connect to the internet. PR1040125
  • On SRX550 and SRX650 devices, when you insert an SFP into a GPIM, the self-traffic is delayed while the chassis reads the SFP data. This might cause a flap for protocols with aggressive timers, such as BGP. PR1043983
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when the underlying interface of the PPPoE interface is a reth interface, there is a delay of 10 seconds in displaying the PPPoE interface information when you run the show interfaces pp*.* command. As a result, a slower response time for the SNMP command related to the PPPoE interface is also observed. PR1068025
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, in the scenario of MPLS over GRE, the MPLS traffic might fail to pass through the GRE tunnel after a system reboot. PR1073733

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when you use UTF-8 encoding to generate the certificate with the certificate authority (CA), certificate validation fails. PR1079429
  • On all SRX Series devices, the security policy scheduler fails to activate or deactivate policies when the daylight saving time (DST) change occurs. PR1080591
  • On SRX550 and SRX650 devices, if a port of an 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet SFP XPIM card is set to the Ethernet switching family, locally generated packets might be dropped by the port. PR1082040
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, all interfaces of the RG0 secondary node go down when the connection between the kernel of the primary node and the ksyncd of the secondary node fails. This occurs because of the memory leak in the shared-memory process (shm-rtsdbd). PR1084660

J-Web

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, you cannot open “Edit Radio” window if there is a wpa-enterprise configured for virtual-access-point. PR945039
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the packet capture function cannot be displayed through J-Web. However, the packet capture function can be disabled by using the CLI. PR1023944
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, changing another ALG configuration through J-Web causes the IKE-ESG ALG configuration to be changed. PR1104346
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, in J-Web, the default option under Security > Logging > Application tracking is selected. This causes application tracking to get enabled if any system log configuration is saved. PR1106629

Network Address Translation (NAT)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when the NAT configuration changes are made, the flowd process might crash. As a result, the memory allocation is affected. PR1084907
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the entry timeout value of ALG is configured larger than the timer wheel's maximum timeout value (7200 seconds). However, this entry cannot be inserted into the timer wheel. As a result, an ALG persistent NAT binding leak occurs. PR1088539
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when domain names are used as a matching condition on security policies, the SRX Series device sends the resolved request to the DNS server. If the DNS server is unreachable, the SRX Series device will keep trying to resend the request to the DNS server. As a result, all the file descriptors on the nsd process become exhausted. PR1089730

Platform and Infrastructure

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the secondary node in a chassis cluster environment might crash or go into DB mode, displaying the panic: rnh_index_alloc message. This issue is sometimes observed in a chassis cluster environment with multipoint st0.x interface configured, and the tunnel interfaces flaps according to IPsec idle-timeout or IPsec vpn-monitor. PR1035779
  • On SRX240 devices, after a system reboot, the link state of the VLAN interface might go down. PR1041761

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, upgrade to certain Junos OS versions might fail when a commit script is configured. PR1096576

Switching

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when you connect to the device through wireless AP the secure access port incorrectly allows access to the MAC addresses that are not in the list of allowed MAC addresses. PR587163

Unified Threat Management (UTM)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with UTM Web filtering configured and if multiple websense-redirect profiles are configured with different Websense servers, only one Websense server is available and seen in the up state. PR1077779

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with dynamic VPN configured, the KMD process restarts or crashes, causing an IP address leak on the dynamic VPN address pool. PR1063085
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with IPsec VPN configured, the IPsec VPN tunnel might fail to be reestablished after recovery tunnel flapping. This occurs because an old, invalid tunnel session exists on the central point. As a result, an attempt to create the new tunnel session fails. PR1070991
  • On all SRX Series devices, the maximum number of characters allowed for an IKE policy name is limited to 31 bytes. Although you can configure more than 31 bytes by using the CLI, the bytes in excess of the limit are ignored on the data plane. PR1072958
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with site-to-site IPsec VPN configured using IKEv2, if an active tunnel existed and the SRX Series device acted as the responder of IKEv2 negotiation, then the VPN peer initiating a duplicate IKEv2 Phase 2 negotiation request will cause the IPsec VPN tunnel to go to inactive state on the data plane side of the SRX Series device. PR1074418
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with dynamic VPN configured, the key management process (KMD) might crash when an IKE payload with a different port number is received. PR1080326
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with IPsec VPN configured, if the SRX Series device is the initiator and the other peer is from another vendors, the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) tunnel negotiation might not come up under certain conditions. PR1085657

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D35

Application Identification

  • On all branch SRX Series devices running Junos OS Release 12.1X46 and earlier, if application identification (AppID) is enabled, performance degradation is seen in comparison with devices running Junos OS Release 12.1X47-D10 and later. This is because the AppID function does not ignore the related sessions when AppID has reached the terminal state, and continues with the serialization processing for those sessions. It is important to note that Junos OS Release 12.1X47 and later releases use advanced AppID. PR1046509

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices (except SRX110) in a chassis cluster with TCP-based ALG enabled and the TCP keepalive mechanism used on the TCP server and client, after a data plane Redundancy Group (RG1+) failover, the keep-alive message causes the mbuf to be held by the ALG until the session timeout. As a result, a high mbuf usage alarm is generated. Application communication failure occurs due to lack of mbuf. PR1031910
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the SIP ALG and NAT enabled, if you place a call on hold or off hold many times, each time with different media ports, the resource in the call is used, resulting in one-way audio. Tearing down the call clears the resource, and following calls are not affected. PR1032528
  • On all branch SRX Series devices (except SRX110) in a chassis cluster with the SCCP ALG enabled and if the SCCP state in use flag is not configured in the process of the SCCP call in the device, the related real-time object (RTO) hot synchronization might cause the flowd process to crash. PR1034722
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the MS-RPC ALG enabled, the flowd process might crash when the MS-RPC ALG processes the crafted ISystemActivator RemoteCreateInstance Response packets. PR1036574
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the SIP ALG and NAT enabled, the SIP ALG does not execute IP translation for the retransmitted 183 session progress messages. In this scenario, the SIP call will fail when the device receives the first 183 session progress messages without SDP information, but the retransmitted 183 session progress messages contains SDP information. PR1036650
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the DNS ALG does not terminate the session when a truncated DNS reply is received. Hence, the session remains up until high timeout (10~50) is reached. PR1038800
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, SIP ALG code has been enhanced to support RFC 4566 regarding the SDP lines order and to avoid issues of no NAT in owner filed (O line) in some circumstances. PR1049469
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the MS-RPC ALG enabled, the flowd process might crash due to incorrect MS-RPC ALG parsing for the ISystemActivator RemoteCreateInstance Response packets. PR1066697

Authentication

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with firewall authentication enabled, when a firewall authentication from an authenticated IP address for a new authentication fails, and then a pass-through firewall authentication tries this entry, the firewall authentication function accesses a freed memory, which results in a flowd process crash. PR1040214

Chassis Cluster

  • On all branch SRX Series devices in chassis cluster mode, during control plane RG0 failover, a policy resynchronization operation compares the policy message between the Routing Engine and the Packet Forwarding Engine. However, some fields in the security policy data message are not processed. Data for unprocessed fields might be treated differently and cause the flowd process to crash. PR1040819
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, if the switching fabric (swfab) interface is configured, the swfab interface incorrectly updates the state of the fabric (fab) interface. As a result, the fab interface might be stuck in the down state. PR1064005

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices configured as a DHCP server (using the jdhcpd process), when the DHCP server gets a new request from a client and applies an IP address from the authentication process (authd), the jdhcpd process communicates with authd process twice as expected (once for the DHCP discovery message and once for the DHCP request message). If the authentication fails in the first message, the authd process will indefinitely wait for the second authentication request. However, the jdhcpd process never sends the second request, because the process detects that the first authentication did not occur. This causes memory leak on the authd process, and the memory might get exhausted, generating a core file and preventing DHCP server service. High CPU usage on the Routing Engine might also be observed. PR1042818

Flow-Based and Packet-Based Processing

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when composite next hop is used, RSVP session flap might cause an if state mismatch between the master Routing Engine and the backup Routing Engine, leading to a kernel crash on the master Routing Engine. PR905317
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with IDP configured, in rare cases, where the device runs out of memory, the flowd process might crash if shell code detection occurs. PR985139
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when you configure http-get RPM probes to measure the website response, the probes might fail because the HTTP server might incorrectly interpret the request coming from the device. PR1001813
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, IPsec tunnel reconnection might cause a memory leak. PR1002738
  • On all multiple thread-based branch SRX Series devices (SRX240, SRX550, and SRX650), if IDP, AppSecure, ALG, GTP, or the SCTP feature, which is required for serialization flow processing is enabled, the device might encounter an issue where two flow threads work on the same session at the same time for the serialization flow processing. This issue might cause memory corruption, and then result in a flowd process crash. PR1026692
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when you enable flexible-vlan-tagging, the return traffic might be dropped on the tagged interface with the following message: packet dropped, pak dropped due to invalid l2 broadcast/multicast addr. PR1034602
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster Z mode, if static NAT or destination NAT is configured, and in the NAT rule, the IP address of the incoming interface is used as a matching condition of the destination address (for example, set security nat static <rule-set-name> rule <rule-name> match destination-address <use the IP address of incoming interface>), then the traffic matching the NAT rule is discarded. PR1040185

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • On SRX240, SRX550, and SRX650 devices with IPsec VPN configured using IKE version 1, the device can hold only two pairs of IPsec security associations (SAs) per tunnel. When the third IPsec SA rekey occurs, the oldest IPsec SA is deleted. Due to this mechanism, a looping of IPsec SA rekey might occur. For example, when a VPN peer contains incorrect configuration that has more than two proxy IDs matching only one proxy ID on a device, the rekey looping issue might cause the flowd process to crash on multiple thread-based SRX Series devices. PR996429
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, in a hub-and-spoke IPsec VPN scenario, on the hub site, when committing the static NHTBs on the multipoint secure tunnel (st0) interface, the VPN routes might become active even though the VPN tunnel is down. This issue also occurs when the system reboots with static NHTBs and the related static routes configured. PR1007235
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, in group VPN setups, all the already registered members might suddenly disappear from the key server due to memory leak. PR1023940
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when IPsec VPN is enabled using IKE version 2 and a distinguished name is used to verify the IKE version 2 Phase 1 remote identity, a remote peer initiates IKE version 2 Phase 1 security association (SA) renegotiation (SRX Series devices work as responders), the new negotiated VPN tunnel might stay in "inactive" state on the data plane, causing IPsec VPN traffic loss. PR1028949
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the block size for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) has been reduced from 8 to 4. Block size 8 is used for connecting to other SRX Series devices, and block size 4 is interoperable with systems from Cisco, strongSwan, and other companies. When you set the correct block size 4 for AES-GCM, it causes a problem when connecting to previous releases of Junos OS for SRX Series devices. The problem affects certain packet sizes, so it might appear to work for some traffic, such as ping, but not for other traffic. In a hub-and-spoke configuration, the upgrade causes problems with tunnels to all spokes until they are upgraded. PR1037432
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when a primary IP address of an interface changes, some IPsec tunnels terminated on that interface might go down. PR1044620
  • On all branch SRX Series devices configured with a large number of IPsec VPN tunnels, in a very rare condition, if VPN monitoring is enabled, the kmd process might crash when you delete the partial VPN tunnels. PR1044660

  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, the counter for incoming traffic on a fabric interface always shows zero (0). PR949962
  • On all branch SRX Series devices (except the SRX110), in an asymmetric chassis cluster, the secondary node (node1) uses a local interface to back up the interface in the primary node (for example, node 0). If there is a route change, then the traffic is sent to the egress from the backup interface, which is the local interface of node 1. After the route resumes, the traffic is sent back to the egress from the primary interface, which is the local interface of node 0. The session related to the route change is in active state on both the nodes.

  • On all SRX Series devices, if GRE tunnel configuration is committed without a correct route to the tunnel destination, the GRE tunnel session will bind the wrong anchor interface (the GRE tunnel outgoing interface) by route lookup. This anchor interface will not be updated even after the route is corrected when you commit the subsequent configuration. PR933591
  • On all branch SRX devices, when the device is in packet mode, after you change an interface configuration, the warning message "warning: You have changed inet flow mode; You must reboot the system for your change to take effect" is displayed. The same message is displayed on every commit until the next reboot. This message can be safely ignored. PR949472
  • On SRX210 devices running in packet mode, when DSCP marking (32 - 63) is on and the destination MAC in the packet header is present in the SRX ARP table, the devices reply to packets that are not destined to them. On devices in a chassis cluster, you must ensure that packets not destined to the SRX210 do not reach the device. PR950486

Hardware

  • On the B and H versions of SRX100, SRX210, and SRX240 devices with 1 GB of RAM, the predefined IPS templates other than the recommended template might not compile successfully. PR925337
  • On SRX550 and SRX650 devices, the SRX-GP-DUAL/QUAD-T1-E1 GPIM might have interoperability issues with the remote CSU using national standard feature due to the violation of ITU-T recommendation G.704. PR939944

Interfaces and Routing

  • On SRX550 devices, the T3/E3 FPC goes offline after provisioning a switched port. PR919617
  • On SRX Series devices with the 3G USB wireless modem, when the signal is low, the 3G cellular modem interface (cl-0/0/*) displays the status as Connected even though there is no signal or there is a low signal with no network connection. This is because there is no mechanism for the wireless WAN process to notify the Routing Engine status change even though the Packet Forwarding Engine is notified. After the signal recovers, the 3G cellular modem interface is not able to dial again. PR923056
  • On SRX550 devices with DS3/E3 interfaces, the external clocking option is disabled to support the clocking option. PR936356

Screens

  • When you use the screen ids-option limit-session destination-ip-based command, the session synchronization is not correct. PR940029

Unified Threat Management (UTM)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the UTM Kaspersky antivirus (KAV) option enabled, and the intelligent-prescreening option configured, the chunked packet that only contains chunk-size data without any actual data is recognized as an invalid data packet, and the packet is dropped before it passes to the KAV engine in the KAV HTTP proxy processing. PR937539

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • Certificate-based authentication would fail when the RSA signature from the remote peer used SHA-256 as the message digest algorithm. PR936141
  • On all SRX Series devices, when IPsec is used in a chassis cluster, after the SPU or flowd uptime reaches 50 days or more, the amount of RTO traffic on the fabric link increases. PR941999
  • On devices in a chassis cluster, during RG0 failover to new primary node, if a route-based VPN does not have IPsec SAs associated with the tunnel, then the bind interface (st0) associated with the tunnel is marked as down. PR944478
  • After the traffic-selector configuration is deleted from the VPN configuration object, the data traffic stops passing through the tunnel. PR944598

Resolved Issues - 12.1X46-D10

Application Layer Gateways (ALGs)

  • The total SIP call values were incorrect, and the ALG feature could not be verified. PR839190
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, the flowd process might crash when the ALG is enabled and the security policy is configured with the log option for ALG traffic. PR889097
  • The Sun RPC ALG cannot open the gate as expected if the port string in get-address message is longer than 6, because current Sun RPC ALG can only parse the uaddr port string which is lesser than 6. PR901205

Authentication

  • On all branch SRX Series devices configured with firewall authentication, if a user was already authenticated, and then when a subsequent user initiated authentication using the same IP address as the first user, the subsequent user inherited the first authenticated user’s “Access time remaining” value. PR843591

BGP

  • Under specific time-sensitive circumstances, if BGP determines that an UPDATE is too big to be sent to a peer, and immediately attempts to send a withdraw message, the routing daemon (rpd) may crash. An example of an oversized BGP UPDATE is one where a very long AS_PATH would cause the packet to exceed the maximum BGP message size (4096 bytes). The use of a very large number of BGP Communities can also be used to exceed the maximum BGP message size.

    Please refer to JSA10609 for additional information. PR918734

Chassis Cluster

  • On devices in a chassis cluster, when you execute the clear system commit command, it clears commit only from the local node. PR821957
  • On devices in a chassis cluster, during a control link failure, if the secondary node is rebooted by control link failure recovery, the rebooted node goes into disabled state even after startup. PR828558
  • On all branch SRX Series devices in a chassis cluster, when you download IDP Signature Database from the primary node, the sig-db is not synchronized to the secondary node. PR914987

Command-Line Interface (CLI)

  • There is no specific CLI command to display the count of sessions allowed, denied, or terminated because of UAC enforcement. PR733995
  • AppQoS does not display the correct application identification name when you run the show class-of-service application-traffic-control statistics rate-limiter CLI command. PR751490
  • Certain combinations of Junos OS CLI commands and arguments have been found to be exploitable in a way that can allow root access to the operating system. This may allow any user with permissions to run these CLI commands the ability to achieve elevated privileges and gain complete control of the device.

    Please refer to JSA10608 for additional information. PR912707, PR913328, PR913449, PR913831, PR915313, PR915957, PR915961, PR921219, PR921499

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when there are multiple interfaces configured as DHCP client, if one of DHCP client interface is from down state to up state, the IP address acquired by other DHCP client interfaces will be deleted unexpectedly and are added back after sometime. There is temporary traffic interruption until the deleted IP address is recovered automatically. PR890124
  • Prior to Junos OS Release 11.4R9, DHCP option 125 cannot be configured for use as the byte-stream option. With Junos OS Release 11.4R9 and later releases, DHCP option 125 can be used for the byte-stream option. PR895055
  • On all branch SRX Series devices working as DHCP clients, when the connection with the primary DHCP server is lost, the device tries to renew the lease. The device then drops the DHCP rebind ACK from the other DHCP server, which tries to assign the same IP address to it. PR911864

Flow and Processing

  • When DNS ALG was enabled, the rewrite rules applied on the egress interface might not work for DNS messages. PR785099
  • After enabling IPv6 in flow mode, IPv6 routes are not active. PR824563
  • Current implementation of timeout for http is 1800s, the default timeout should be 300s. PR858621
  • The RPM script triggers twice when the RPM probe-test fails. PR869519
  • On J Series devices, the self-originating outbound traffic always uses the first logical unit queue. PR887283
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with the MS-RPC ALG enabled, when the junos-ms-rpc application is not configured in the security policy and if the MS RPC control session is permitted by the security policy that matched the application “any”, then the MS-RPC ALG should not check the MS RPC data session and be permitted by the security policy. If the MS-RPC data session is configured to be processed by one or more other services such as IDP, UTM, AppID, or AppFW, then the MS-RPC ALG incorrectly checks the MS RPC data session and discards the MS RPC data session. PR904682
  • On SRX100, SRX110, SRX210, and SRX220 devices with the FTP Application Layer Gateway (ALG) enabled, ICMP redirect might not work for FTP traffic. PR904686
  • The memory allocated for multicast session might not release when multicast reroute occurs, this leads to memory leak. PR905375
  • When you use a classifier based on EXP bits on a PE router, the CoS marked MPLS traffic is forwarded to the default egress queues instead of the custom configured queues. PR920066

Hardware

  • On SRX210 devices, after you upgrade to Junos OS 12.1X46-D10 or later, the fan speed in relation to the Routing Engine temperature does not follow the temperature threshold table. PR910977

Infrastructure

  • On all branch SRX Series devices, when the device authentication is through RADIUS server and the password protocol is Microsoft CHAP version 2, the password change operation fails as the user password change is enforced through Microsoft Active Directory server. PR740869
  • After an upgrade, you cannot copy files between nodes in a cluster using the file copy command. PR817228
  • On SRX240 devices, when a nonstandard HTTPS port is set, the URI changes to the IP address and port. PR851741
  • On SRX100B and SRX100H devices unexpected system reboot is observed, and multiple core files are generated due to a double data rate2 (DDR2) memory timing issue between DRAM and CPU. The symptoms include flowd core files, core files from other daemons (such as snmpd, ntpd, rtlogd and so on) and silent reboot without core files are generated. These core files are related to random memory access (example: pointer corruption in session ager ring entry). PR909069

Interfaces and Routing

  • The Routing Protocol Daemon (RPD) might crash with the following error: /kernel: BAD_PAGE_FAULT: pid 1472 (rpd), uid 0: pc 0x86ff81c got a read fault at 0x15,x86 fault flags = 0x4, when the OSPF switches from the primary path to the secondary path when loop-free alternates (LFA) and LDP-SYNC are enabled. The corruption is caused when OSPF does not completely free a memory location that is later reused by LDP. PR737141
  • On VLAN tagged ethernet frames (802.1p), you cannot modify the VDSL priority bits. PR817939
  • On SRX550 devices, the VRRP does not work when it is connected through IRB. PR834766
  • On J Series devices, a Layer 2 loop might occur for a short time when you run the request system power-off, request system reboot, or request system halt command. PR856457
  • The RPM script is triggered twice when the RPM probe-test fails. PR869519
  • When a SHDSL Mini-PIM is configured in 2-wire mode with annex mode as Annex B/G, one of the physical interfaces does not come up. PR874249, PR882035
  • The point-to-multipoint (P2MP) interface does not accept any multicast packets, this leads to interoperability issues with the Secure Services Gateway (SSG). PR895090
  • When there is a configuration change in the VDSL profile from one to another, the VDSL line does not retrain and comes up with the newly configured VDSL profile. PR898775
  • When the virtual routers (routing instances) are connected with a looped cable and if one of the interfaces is VLAN, the unicast communication is unsuccessful. PR909190
  • When multiple routing-instances are defined, DNS names in the address-book entries might not get resolved. This results in corresponding security policies to be nonoperational. PR919810

J-Web

  • On SRX550 devices, the “External storage” option is not supported. Hence, do not select the "External storage" option from the list on the Maintain > reboot and snapshot page. PR741593
  • The J-Web interface was vulnerable to HTML cross-site scripting attacks, also called XST or cross-site tracing. PR752398
  • The Layer 2 Transparent Mode feature does not work with group configurations. PR815225
  • In J-Web, if the policy name was “0”, the penultimate-hop popping (PHP) function treated it as empty, and traffic log output could not be viewed. PR853093
  • J-Web fails to display the member in the application set after adding it to the nested application set. PR883391
  • On J-Web, when you configure policy, the address set is seen as undefined in the Policy wizard. But, if a policy is created from Security > Policy > Apply policy, the address set is seen. PR892766
  • On J-Web, the configured maximum flow memory value key max-flow-mem is marked as deprecated and hidden. Therefore, the maximum flow memory value cannot be fetched or displayed in J-Web. PR894787
  • J-Web fails to display all policies under the from or to zone if one of them has the ## string in the description field. PR917136

License

  • On SRX100 High Memory devices, after returning to zero the system licenses are deleted and the device reverts to an SRX100B device. PR863962

Network Address Translation (NAT)

  • NAT-T might not work when the VPN is with Cisco and if the VPN is initiated from a Cisco peer. The VPN negotiates using port UDP 500 instead of UDP 4500 when NAT is involved. PR869458
  • On devices in a chassis cluster, the chassis cluster rule number of sessions in the SNMP query or walk result is the sum of the real number of sessions of the primary node and the secondary node. PR908206

Security

  • The glob implementation in libc allows authenticated remote users to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption) via crafted glob expressions that do not match any pathnames. This vulnerability can be exploited against a device running Junos OS with FTP services enabled to launch a high CPU utilization partial denial of service attack.

    Please refer to JSA10598 for additional information. PR558494

  • If Proxy ARP is enabled on an unnumbered interface, an attacker can poison the ARP cache and create a bogus forwarding table entry for an IP address, effectively creating a denial of service for that subscriber or interface. When Proxy ARP is enabled on an unnumbered interface, the router will answer any ARP message from any IP address which could lead to exploitable information disclosure.

    Please refer to JSA10595 for additional information. PR842092

Switching

  • On SRX650 devices, the dot1x:mode:Multiple:Supplicants were authenticated even after a disconnect message was sent from the RADIUS server. PR786731

Unified Threat Management (UTM)

  • The antivirus fallback block notification displays invalid notification option. PR787063
  • When full file-based scanning of antivirus is enabled with Kaspersky scanning, some websites are not accessible. PR853516
  • The flowd process might crash when traffic is processed by UTM. PR854880
  • The device tries to resolve and connect to cpa.surfcpa.com and update.juniper-updates.net even if there are no licenses or configuration related to UTM. PR856128
  • On all branch SRX Series devices using EWF, a small percentage of the connections to the Websense ThreatSeeker Intelligence Cloud might time out. PR860514
  • The EWF parser mishandled URL and hosts from the HTTP header. This results in an uncategorized EWF reply. PR862602
  • On all branch SRX Series devices with UTM content filtering configured, a long file name encoded with the ISO-2022 might incorrectly match the content filtering extension blocking policy even if the extension blocking list does not contain the type of file extension. As a result, the file is dropped. PR865607
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, new categories for EWF have been added. PR866160

User Interface and Configuration

  • On SRX240 devices (with H2 and B2 model numbers) running Junos OS Release 11.4R8 or 11.4R9, you cannot upgrade to Junos OS Release 11.4R10 or later.

    You can upgrade from Junos OS Release 11.4R8 or 11.4R9 to Junos OS Release 12.1X44-D10, 12.1X45-D10, and 12.1X46-D10. PR934393

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

  • On an SRX Series device, when a session is closed because the user for that session has signed out from the Junos Pulse, the session close log shows the role information as “N/A”. PR689607
  • The SRX Series cluster is used as a VPN concentrator that is connected to remote VPN clients. The Internet key exchange process (daemon) tries to reuse the IP address that was previously assigned to an XAuth client. But the IKEd Xauth attributes are overwritten when the authentication reply is received from Authd. This causes the IKEd to assign a new IP address every time a Phase 1 Security Association (SA) is negotiated. As a result, multiple remote clients cannot connect through VPN. PR854922
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, the Junos Pulse client has been updated from Release 2.0R3 to 4.0R2. PR868101
  • On all branch SRX Series devices, a memory leak occurs on the data plane during continuous interface flapping, such as when interfaces are continuously added or deleted. PR898731
  • For IKEv2, if an SRX Series device running Junos OS Release 12.1X46-D10 is in negotiation with a peer SRX Series device running Junos OS Release 11.4 or 12.1X44, a kmd core file might be generated on the peer device during IPsec child SA rekey. This does not impact any IKEv1 scenarios. PR915376
  • On all branch SRX Series devices configured with group VPN, the flowd process might crash when group VPN Security Association (SA) rekeys and swaps to the new VPN tunnel. PR925107
