Normally when a GTM virtual server points to an LTM virtual server that is local to the LC/GTM box, it will display the link that it is assigned by LC/GTM. When a user reloads the config file, virtual servers will lose their association with links.


The user is unable to see the link associated with the LTM virtual server.


GTM or LC and LTM is provisioned, a GTM virtual server is pointed at an LTM virtual server on the same box, and a user runs tmsh load sys config.


From the shell prompt on the BIG-IP: bigstart restart gtmd

Fix Information

Link status for GTM server and virtual server IPs should work properly now after a config load.
