[GTM] [big3d] Unable to mark LTM virtual server up if there is another virtual server with same ltm_name for the bigip monitor.
Both virtual servers are marked up for a brief interval. After a few minutes, one of them is marked down.
LTM (running BIG-IP software older than v11.2.0) with a virtual server: /Common/http_vip with destination /Common/192.168.10.34:80. GTM (running BIG-IP software newer than v11.5.0) with this LTM as a BIG-IP Server. Two virtual servers on LTM: One with the original LTM virtual server address, and the other with the translated address: 1. name ltm_http_vip :: destination 192.168.10.34:80 :: monitor /Common/bigip. 2. name ltm_http_trans_vip :: destination 10.10.10.34:80 :: translation-address 192.168.10.34:80 :: monitor /Common/bigip.
You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Use a monitor other than bigip. -- Replace /shared/bin/big3d on the LTM system with a copy of a version v11.2.1 or later big3d.
The BIG-IP health monitor no longer incorrectly marks down virtual servers with a duplicate ltm-name when there are BIG-IP GTM systems with differing software versions monitoring BIG-IP LTM virtual servers using the bigip monitor.
