KERN_ARP_ADDR_CHANGE log messages every 13 to 15 seconds

 KERN_ARP_ADDR_CHANGE: arp info overwritten for 172.24.80.190 from e8:8d:28:58:33:6f to 00:24:9b:04:86:2f

We are seeing the messages above on our srx 240 firewall logs every 13 - 15 seconds. We have located both Machines by MAC Address and only one is 172.24.80.190. Anyone know what might be happening here? The Arp info keeps going back and forth.

 

Thanks in Advance

We believe we have solved the issue by rebooting an Apple Time Capsule with built in network switch. It was one of the devices that kept broadcasting its MAC as the wrong IP.

 

Since rebooting we have not seen a log entry with a KERN_ARP... message for 10 minutes. We would have seen around 100 entries by now prior to the reboot.

Do you have dhcp on your Network ? The ip keeps changing from one mac to an other. If one device is configured static and the other gets an ip from dhcp you will see this happening.

I would suggest checking dhcp server and both devices. Also I suggest disconnecting one or both from the network and see if the ARP then Ages out.

The problem is somewhere within your Network or in one of the two devices
