Symptoms

Mcpd restarts continuously when a new blade is inserted into a chassis running vCMP.

Impact

The newly inserted blade is unable to join the BIG-IP cluster.

Conditions

This issue can occur when a vCMP guest is deployed to a blade which is then replaced as in an RMA situation or if the blade has its BIG-IP image reinstalled.

Workaround

If the new blade is rebooted manually, it is able to properly cluster with the rest of the chassis after restart.

Fix Information

An issue has been resolved which could cause mcpd to continuously restart after a chassis blade replacement.
