VLAN 1 Flood Traffic Flooded out from Ports Designated as Access Ports of other VLANs



In some configurations, flooded traffic from the primary VLAN ID of a bridge can be transmitted out of ports that are not assigned as a member of that VLAN. This can result in the associated broadcast, multicast and unknown destination traffic for the primary VLAN to be transmitted out from ports that should not receive the traffic.


  • Cumulus Linux 2.5.4


To work around this issue, execute the following commands for the bridge:

cumulus@switch:~$ sudo ifdown [bridge] 
cumulus@switch:~$ sudo ifup [bridge]
