Opened: Apr 11, 2014
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

In a GTM deployed configuration BIG-IP resolves to different IP addresses. If the IP address used when establishing a network access connection is different while accessing (after the network access is established) a corporate resource, then this corporate URL access will be denied.

Impact

Access to corporate resources might be denied.

Conditions

GTM deployment. BIG-IP network access configuration and corporate resource resolves to different BIG-IP than the one to which network access is established.

Workaround

Configure BIG-IP system with static host DNS entry.

Fix Information

A certain scenario in GTM deployment was fixed where access to certain corporate resource might be denied despite network access connection.
