If one omits the optional attr_type from a RADIUS::avp command in an iRule, the iRule won't work and an error similar to the following is generated in /var/log/ltm: 11.4.0-Final - RADIUS::avp without attr_type resulted in TCL errors! Feb 20 15:25:11 B11000-R71-S12 err tmm1[13161]: 01220001:3: TCL error: /Common/radius_rule <CLIENT_ACCEPTED> - bad optional args "RADIUS::avp": must be index, vendor-id, or vendor-type while executing "RADIUS::avp 1"


One or more iRules using RADIUS::avp may no longer work.


An iRule in version 11.4.0 or higher.


Add in the attr_type after each RADIUS::avp command.

Fix Information

Made changes to once again allow the attr_type to be optional for all forms of RADIUS::avp.
