BIG-IP All(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
10.2.1

Opened: Jul 21, 2015
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When configuring redundancy in 10.2.x with the GUI you do not configure the config sync peer's user name and password in the GUI. You must use tmsh commands. For example, # modify sys config-sync custom-peer-addr 10.255.252.196 user-password admin # tmsh save sys config

Impact

This can affect synchronization and upgrade. If the username and password is not set then the configuration synchronization fails with authentication errors. Upgrading is also affected because the upgrade path needs the credentials.

Conditions

Setting up redundancy with the GUI in 10.2.x

Workaround

Use tmsh to establish config-sync peer's username and password

Fix Information

None
