Examine the following outputs to help determine the cause of this message:

Look for any related events that occurred at or just before the DFWD_PARSE_STATE_EMERGENCY message that may have contributed to this error.

Perform these steps:

  1. Any other events may have caused this message, such as a commit. If so, the dfwd parser error may be due to that one type of event occurring.
  2. If the failure messages continue, open a case with Juniper technical support.
