Opened: Mar 19, 2015

Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

When upgrading from a version prior to 11.5.0 to 11.5.0 or newer, the configuration might fail to load with an error similar to the following: LSN pool is configured with a prefix address that overlaps with a prefix address on another LSN pool.

Impact

Configuration fails to load on upgrade.

Conditions

On versions prior to 11.5.0, tmsh allowed users to configure overlapping DNAT and NAPT pools, even though this configuration is invalid and non-functional. Version 11.5.0 and later contain validation to prohibit such configurations. However, when upgrading versions newer than 11.5.0, a configuration that contains overlapping DNAT and NAPT pools fails to load.

Workaround

Edit bigip.conf and locate the overlapping LSN pools. Either remove one of the pools or change the mode on the DNAT pool to NAPT.

Fix Information

None
