Symptoms

If the BIG-IP system has a disabled HA Group and is upgraded to 11.5.x or later, the disabled group might be associated with traffic groups on upgrade.

Impact

If the BIG-IP system is rebooted after the upgrade, it's possible that the switch will fail over because the HA group score is used even though the HA group is disabled.

Conditions

Pre-upgrade there is exists a HA Group that is disabled. Upgrade to 11.5.x or later from 10.2.x or 11.x (pre-11.5.0) to a version earlier than 12.0.0, 11.5.4, or 11.6.1.

Workaround

After the upgrade, check all traffic groups and ensure that none of them are configured to use a disabled HA Group.

Fix Information

Upgrading to 11.5.0 and later no longer associates a disabled HA group to traffic groups. This is correct behavior.
