Opened: Sep 24, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

If the DB variable "httpd.basic_auth" is set to "disable", devices listed in the GUI under Device Management > Traffic Groups > <traffic group name> > Failover Order will not display correctly (the device names will show up as 'undefined').

Impact

Unable to use the GUI to accurately set or determine preferred device failover ordering.

Conditions

-- Multiple BIG-IPs in a device service cluster. -- Preferred device ordering is used by at least one traffic group. -- The DB variable "httpd.basic_auth" is set to "disable".

Workaround

Use TMSH to view and/or set the preferred device ordering, i.e.: tmsh list cm traffic-group <traffic group name> OR tmsh modify cm traffic-group <traffic group name> ha-order { <list of device> }

Fix Information

None
