Circling back around to this, this is due to PR1352409. Ultimately it’s a BCM issue.

ISIS weirdness resolved, but now the previously working link between this QFX and an Arista 7280SR no longer comes up, despite light levels on both sides being within norms. I went from 18.4 to 19.1 just for the hell of it, and still no bueno.

The QFX QSFP28 links to the same MX204 as well (no other QSFP28 gear to test with otherwise) so it seems to be a weird compatibility issue between the Arista and the QFX?
