Summary: A running MA5600T may reset after the ping -v command is executed.
The gateway returns an ICMP Destination Unreachable message after the ping -v IP address
command is executed on an MA5600T.
The program instruction is abnormal and the MA5600T resets. See the following example:
MA5600T(config)#ping -v 10.10.10.1
PING 10.10.10.1: 56 data bytes, press CTRL_C to break

The MA5600T resets immediately the ping -v IP address command is executed.
ping -v requires the domain name server (DNS) to parse the domain name corresponding to the IP
address of the ICMP Destination Unreachable message returned. During the domain name parsing,
the hook function is not associated. As a result, the MA5600T invokes an empty hook function,
causing a system reset.
[Impact and Risks]
All services of the reset MA5600T will be interrupted and the configurations that are not saved before
the reset will be lost.
[Measures and Solutions]
Do not add the parameter -v when running a ping command.
The problem will be resolved in the following commercial patches:
V800R006C02SPC124, to be released at the end of March 2011
V800R007C00SPC313, to be released at the end of March 2011
V800R008C01SPC104, to be released at the end of April 2011
