Symptoms

EdgeClient Network Location Awareness (NLA) feature uses case-sensitive DNS suffix matching.

Impact

NLA can't detect that EdgeClient is inside corporate/enterprise network.

Conditions

-- Windows EdgeClient configured to use NLA feature. -- 'Enterprise' NLA suffix configured thru BIG-IP for EdgeClient has a different case than suffix coming from a network to the client.

Workaround

Configure the BIG-IP system to use DNS suffixes exactly as coming from the network (in the same case).

Fix Information

Now EdgeClient uses case-insensitive matching for DNS suffixes when searching for the enterprise network.
