Opened: May 09, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A new DB variable (iptunnel.configsync) is introduced to optionally disable automatic config sync of tunnel objects to a standby device.

Impact

Unable to disable config sync of tunnel objects

Conditions

Device groups configured, and you wish to disable automatic config sync of tunnel objects.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

In the existing behavior, tunnel objects are config synced automatically to a standby device. The DB variable "iptunnel.configsync" can be set to "disable" in order to disable the automatic config sync of tunnel objects. The default value of the DB variable is "enable". Please note that before creating any tunnel objects, the DB variable should be set accordingly if needed, and toggling its value subsequently could lead to an unexpected behavior.
