Bug ID 1148097: rSeries r2xxx/r4xxx support for configuration of MAC block size per tenant

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
F5OS None(all modules)

Fixed In:
F5OS-A 1.4.0

Opened: Sep 08, 2022

Severity: 1-Blocking


Prior to F5OS-A 1.4.0, r2xxx/r4xxx each BIG-IP tenant network interface uses the same MAC address.


Cases like inline L2 require MAC Data/MAC Block Size to be greater than one.


For cases like inline L2, tenants require each BIG-IP tenant interface to have a unique MAC address.


Upgrade to 1.4.

Fix Information

When deploying a tenant, selecting MAC Data/MAC Block Size value of small represents a block of 8 MACs. When this value is used, the tenant gets a block of 8 contiguous MACs. When using LAGs, tenants require that trust-mode is set to true in order to adjust tenant interface MAC addresses.
