Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 03, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The 'persist cookie insert' and 'persist cookie rewrite' iRule commands fail to set session cookies.

Impact

TMM sets a cookie that expires using timeout of 180 instead of a session cookie.

Conditions

A persistence cookie profile with a timeout of zero must be applied. If either command is used without an explicit timeout, LTM will fail to set a session cookie.

Workaround

Explicitly specify a 0 for the cookie timeout in the iRule.

Fix Information

Cookie persistence now works as expected.
