A rapid transition of a BIG-IP Next tenant from Standby-to-Active-to-Standby can leave the floating IP address active even though the tenant is in Standby.
The high availability (HA) floating address remains active on both instances of the BIG-IP Next tenant, causing high availability (HA) issues with the tenant.
This happens only if the transition to Active and back to Standby happens in under 40 seconds or so.
If this condition occurs, effect a failover on the BIG-IP Next tenant. This causes the address to be removed on the previously Active instance. If failover is unsuccessful, wait for 60 seconds and issue one more failover.
