Any Enterprise Manager device connected to a BIG-IP v11.6.0 will not receive configuration change notifications (including status) for nodes, pool members, or pools and will require manual refresh of configuration for those types. Stats and other configuration items remain unaffected.


The impact of this bug is that Enterprise Manager devices will not receive configuration update notifications for nodes, pool members, or pools. This includes status changes. Stats and other configuration items remain unaffected.


This only affects EM devices and potentially MangementPack connections to a BIG-IP. The BIG-IP must be version 11.6.0 only, but the EM may be any version.


This issue has no workaround at this time.
