The link is a licensed 18GHz radio. It supports jumbo frames, and can happily pass 2500 byte pings, with no fragmentation.
It is running rock stable, as the back haul network between the sites happily runs at 1-2ms pings and can support over 350mbps throughput.
The network runs RIP v2 to route the base network, then MPLS ontop of that, with BGP to distribute the VPN4 VRF's
This same config has worked rock stable across other areas of the network for many months now, without any issues.
I talked to another engineer where I live, and he said he has had the exact same thing happen. He ended up defaulting the router and manually re-building the config.
I tried that, and its now working perfectly, reloading the config from an export.
I am worried that it might be a bug in RouterOS, and was interested if anyone else has had the same issue.
It just seems odd that the LDP dynamic neighbour comes up, it shows the connected networks, the VRF's pass traffic then about 15 seconds later the neighbours listed networks vanish.
The opposite end of the link still shows its connected and can see the neighbours networks listed.

Hopefully after the re-build it won't do it again… has been running very stable for the last 48hrs so far.
