3.5.d Implement and troubleshoot operations

3.5.d [iii] Stuck in active

Stuck in active means that an EIGRP router is involved in a diffusing computation (a process of asking the neighboring routers to assist in locating a replacement path to a network for which the usable path has been lost) for a new path to some network, and this computation seems to be stalled because some expected replies have not arrived in a reasonable time.
