Opened: Feb 03, 2015
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

APM units that are not in the same BIG-IP Sync-Failover group are sharing local user entries. The system may possibly also experience higher management CPU load as a result of frequently syncing the local user database.

Impact

Unwanted sharing of local user database between sync-failover groups and/or standalone devices. The system may also experience higher management CPU load as a result of frequently syncing the local user database. Under severe conditions where the database is synced multiple times per minute continually for hours or days, the rapid syncing of the database may result in unexpected failover.

Conditions

There is at least one sync-failover group in the Device Management :: Device Groups list, and there are devices listed in Device Management :: Devices list that are not members of that sync-failover group (either standalone or members of another device group), and those devices are provisioned with APM.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

AAA Local User Database now syncs correctly.
