Symptoms

In an NSSA configuration with a DR, BDR, and HA-configured BIG-IP systems, there are three default routes, one each from DR, BDR, and the standby BIG-IP system. The standby BIG-IP system should not send out any default routes.

Impact

Traffic is incorrectly directed to the standby and dropped.

Conditions

This occurs when using OSPF in an NSSA configuration with a DR, BDR and HA pair BIG-IP systems.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

There are now no default routes from the standby BIG-IP system in an HA pair. This is correct behavior.
