Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
F5OS Velos(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
F5OS-A 1.0.0, F5OS-A 1.0.1, F5OS-C 1.1.0, F5OS-C 1.1.1, F5OS-C 1.1.2, F5OS-C 1.1.3, F5OS-C 1.1.4, F5OS-C 1.2.1, F5OS-C 1.2.2

Fixed In:
F5OS-C 1.5.0

Opened: Sep 30, 2021

Severity: 3-Major


-- LAGs (trunks) not functional in system. -- LACPD daemon in a restart loop -- The "LAGs" and "Interfaces" pages in the F5OS partition GUI fail to load and report "Something went wrong. Check the web browser console for more details or contact technical support for assistance."


All trunks in the partition are down.


-- A LAG is defined that has a space in the name. When a user creates an LAG interface that contains whitespace characters, the LACPD daemon fails to read the interface information, and keeps restarting until the interface is removed or the name is changed to a regular name.


Use the the F5OS partition CLI to remove the LAG, for example: ottersPart-1(config)# no interfaces interface "test lag" ottersPart-1(config)# no interfaces interface 2/2.0 ethernet config aggregate-id ottersPart-1(config)# commit and-quit Commit complete. ottersPart-1#
