Drift and Reconcile (DRC) and Idempotency for IP Prefix List Configuration
The following table captures the various attributes of IP prefix list for which DRC and idempotency is supported.
- A drift is identified if any of the fields are modified through SLX, CLI or other management tools.
- A reconcile operation pushes the intended configuration to SLX, so bringing the SLX configuration in sync with EFA.
|Field||Identify Drift||Reconcile config||Idempotency||Comments|
|IPv4 prefix list rule is deleted.||Yes||Yes||No||Deleted rule will be reconciled.|
|IPv4 prefix list is deleted.||Yes||Yes||No||Deleted prefix list along with all rules associated with it will be reconciled.|
|IPv4 prefix list rule created OOB. Different rules exist with same prefix list name in EFA.||No||No||NA|
|IPv4 prefix-list rule created OOB. Different rules exist with same prefix-list name and same sequence number in EFA.||Yes||Yes||NA||Prefix list rule will be reconciled to be in sync with EFA.|
|Create a IPv4 prefix list OOB with a prefix list name not matching any of EFA created entries.||No||No||NA||These are treated as out of band entries and EFA will not perform DRC.|
