Opened: Jul 25, 2022
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

L2 wire works on BIG-IP, virtual-wire on vCMP architecture platform will be based on Network Tenant Interface (NTI) objects. Tenant related data path and control plane changes.

Impact

The virtual-wire is one of the most important features used under operating in L2 domain. This mode of operation involves very little changes to topology and configuration and thereby can easily plug in a BIG-IP device with virtual-wire configuration.

Conditions

- vCMP architecture based on NTI. - F5OS is completely responsible to create/modify/delete NTI objects and synchronizing it to the tenants.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

Tenant (data/control) plane changes for virtual-wire support on vCMP architecture.
