URPF Troubleshooting

URPF Troubleshooting

This chapter describes common causes of URPF faults, and provides the corresponding troubleshooting flowcharts, troubleshooting procedures, alarms, and logs.

URPF Check Fails

This section describes the troubleshooting flowchart shown in Figure 3-1 and provides a step-by-step troubleshooting procedure for the fault that prevents the URPF-enabled device from discarding packets as expected.

Common Causes

This fault is commonly caused by one of the following:

  • Source addresses of the packets that should be discarded in the routing entries exist.
  • Default routes in the routing table exist.
  • The matching rules configured on the device are incorrect.

Troubleshooting Flowchart

A URPF-enabled device receives certain packets that should be discarded by themselves, but the statistics show that no packets are discarded by URPF. In this case, follow the troubleshooting procedure shown in Figure 4-120 to isolate the problem.

The troubleshooting roadmap is as follows:
  • Check whether there are default routes and routes with the sources addresses of the packets that should be discarded in the routing table.
  • Check whether the matching rules are correct.

Troubleshooting Procedure


After the commands are configured to troubleshoot the faults, check the configuration validation mode to ensure that the configurations take effect. Unless otherwise specified, this manual defaults to immediate validation mode.

  • In immediate validation mode, the configurations take effect after the commands are entered.
  • In two-phase validation mode, after the commands are configured, the commit command needs to be run to commit the configurations.

Save the results of each troubleshooting step so that if your troubleshooting attempts fail to correct the fault, you will have a record of your actions to present to Huawei.


  1. Check whether there are any default routes and routes with the source addresses of the packets that should be discarded in the routing table.

    Run the display ip routing-table command in the user view to check the Destination/Mask field in the routing table.

    • If the routing table contains routes with the source addresses of packets that should be discarded, configure certain rules and import the rules into the filter to deny the packets sent along these routes. For detailed configuration information, see "Routing Policy Configuration" in HUAWEI ME60 Multiservice Control Gateway Configuration Guide - IP Routing.

    • If the routing table does not contain such routes, go to Step 2.

  2. Check whether the configured matching rules are correct.

    Run the display traffic classifier classifier-name command in the user view to check the Rule(s) field.

    • If packets are incorrectly filtered based on the configured rules, correct the rules.
    • If packets are correctly filtered based on the configured rules, go to Step 3

  3. Collect the following information and contact Huawei.

    • Results of this troubleshooting procedures
    • Configuration files, log files, and alarm files of the devices
