Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 18, 2013
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Since v11.4.0, iApps have looked for the non-existence of '/Common/cookie' as the indicator of Edge licensing, since cookie persistence is not provided with Edge Gateways. This test reads incorrectly if the iApp is run from a partition other than /Common, and has been replaced with a direct test for the appropriate license features.

Impact

This test reads incorrectly. The iApp reports an error and fails to configure.

Conditions

Using partition other than /common on BIG-IP systems in association with the following iApps: -- f5.http -- f5.bea_weblogic -- f5.sap_erp -- f5.peoplesoft_9 -- f5.sharepoint_2010 -- f5.dns -- f5.diameter -- f5.radius -- f5.ldap -- f5.oracle_ebs -- f5.microsoft_iis.

Workaround

To workaround, make a copy of the iApp template and change two instances of the 'set is_edge' statement to 'set is_edge 0'.

Fix Information

Certain iApps now operate normally when executed from an administrative partition other than /Common.
