Bug ID 1298653: In an Active/Standby configuration, if the virtual server destination is modified to that of an existing self IP, it leaves the standby with the old virtual server IP

Last Modified: Oct 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Opened: May 18, 2023

Severity: 4-Minor


Virtual server destination IP will not be in sync in an Active standby setup.


If there is a failover, connections will fail.


Virtual server should be first created using the floating IP, so it will be synced between active and standby. On the active, now modify the destination IP with the self IP of active. The configuration change will be accepted but the changes will not be synced.


Ensure virtual server destination IP is not the same as self IP.
