Opened: Dec 09, 2014
Severity: 4-Minor


Use of FQDN nodes causes errors in almost all f5-supported iapps.


iApp will throw an error: "0107189b:3: Cannot delete ephemeral object: /Common/foo-"


1. create an FQDN node named "foo" that refers to the fqdn "www.foo.com" 2. create an iapp instance using the attached ephemeral_example template 3. enter "foo" when prompted by the iapp for a node name 4. click "finished" and observe the pool in the component view 5. click "reconfigure" 6. click "finished".



Fix Information

The iApp mark-and-sweep framework should be modified to ignore ephemeral pool members when modifying iApp-managed pools.
