lldpad: CEE DCBX: advertise bits may be reset to defaults at init
Last modified: 2012-06-20 10:15:00 EDT
The user may use dcbtool commands to clear advertise bits on CEE DCBX feature attributes (PFC, PG, APP). These are being lost across ifdown/ifup sequences and default values are being restored. The fix is to only set the values to defaults if the user has not explicitly enabled them. This default behavior was added to reduce DCBX configuration but missed this case.
The patch below resolves the issue:
