A tenant running on an r2000 or r4000-series appliance is not able to pass traffic through a VLAN group, regardless of the VLAN group mode. Traffic to/from the tenant does not work properly if the "ltm global-settings general share-single-mac" / "VLAN.MacAssignment" DB key is changed to "unique".


Traffic to tenant stops working and all the traffic to tenant is dropped.


- r2000 and r4000-series appliances - tenant using VLAN groups, or with the share-single-mac setting changed from the default ("vmw-compat") to "unique".
