Opened: Jan 10, 2022

Severity: 5-Cosmetic


The 'sys state-mirroring' section in tmsh, as well as the following db keys, are deprecated and should not be used to define the mirroring properties of a device: sys db statemirror.ipaddr sys db statemirror.peeripaddr sys db statemirror.secondary.ipaddr sys db statemirror.secondary.peeripaddr sys db statemirror.state If you wish to configure the mirroring properties of a BIG-IP device, please use the 'cm' section in tmsh, or use the configuration utility under Device Management > Devices. Each device only needs to set its own properties, for instance: tmsh modify cm device bigip-ntr-a.local mirror-ip tmsh modify cm device bigip-ntr-a.local mirror-secondary-ip


Using one of the deprecated ways to configure mirroring will not achieve the intended result. These may be removed from the product in a future version to avoid confusion and errors.
