Move address from one high availability (HA) redundant LTM to another might cause BIG-IP monitor failure.
Only one of the redundant LTM systems get probed. If the probed LTM is standby, it ignores the probe request. The available BIG-IP redundant LTM server is marked down, the monitor does not work, and all hosted virtual servers are marked down.
-- LTM server high availability (HA) configuration with one address at 'Address List' and another at 'Peer Address List'. -- One of the addresses is moved from another.
To work around this: 1. In the GUI, delete the address from either the 'Address List' or 'Peer Address List' and click 'Update'. . 2. Add the address to the other field and click 'Update'. Note: Make sure to click 'Update' after step 1 before proceeding to step 2. Note: In some cases, if all addresses have the same device-name (as seen via tmsh list gtm server), it may also be necessary to restart the gtmd process to pick up the changes.
