Severity: 3-Major


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.


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


IPv6 translation addresses are in use in relevant objects.


If possible, do not use IPv6 translation addresses.

Fix Information

IPv6 translation addresses now function as designed.
