The BIG-IP system continues announcing RHI routes when Virtual Servers and Virtual Addresses are down.


The kernel route still is announced, which might cause other network devices to be confused on the network status, so the impact varies.


The issue occurs in the following case: -- Have a VIP with pool selection via iRule. -- Configure RHI on the VAddr corresponding to the VIP. -- Down the pools (for example, toggling between HTTP monitor (up) and UDP monitor (down)). -- VIP, VAddr, and pools are red. -- Run the imish command.


Configure virtual server with default pool instead of iRule.

Fix Information

Added validation for virtual server iRule pools.
