Opened: Mar 29, 2022
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

As BIG-IP DNS and Link Controller systems connect with one another (or with monitored BIG-IP systems) over iQuery, you may notice: -- Log messages that specify IPv6 translation addresses non-existent in your configuration and often meaningless (as in not pertaining to some of the more common IPv6 address spaces). For example: debug gtmd[24229]: 011ae01e:7: Creating new socket to connect to 2001::1 (a06d:3d70:fd7f:0:109c:7000::) -- If you restart the gtmd daemon, the IPv6 translation address mentioned above between parenthesis changes to a new, random meaningless value. -- The GTM portion of the configuration fails to synchronize.

Impact

The logs are misleading and the GTM portion of the configuration may fail to synchronize.

Conditions

IPv6 translation addresses are in use in relevant objects.

Workaround

If possible, do not use IPv6 translation addresses.

Fix Information

IPv6 translation addresses now function as designed.
