Opened: Oct 02, 2014
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

A create followed by a delete of a virtual server in a transaction fails

Impact

Transaction may fail

Conditions

A virtual server must be deleted in the same transaction as another virtual server being created where both share the same destination address. This applies to operations performed via iControl REST and tmsh.

Workaround

Use create and delete in separate transactions

Fix Information

Transactions where virtual servers are deleted and re-created with the same virtual IP address will now complete successfully.
