Symptoms

Virtual Edition (VE) deployed with 1 CPU only shows INOPERATIVE status until at least one VLAN is both configured and attached to an interface.

Impact

In the CLI, device remains in INOPERATIVE state, but shows ACTIVE in the GUI. This might cause unneeded delay trying to rectify what appears to be a license issue when there is none.

Conditions

Install the BIG-IP Virtual Edition software on a VM with 1 CPU (1 CPU/2048 MB RAM option available in OVA) and license, but do not create any VLANs (or create VLANs, but do not attach them to an interface).

Workaround

To work around this, configure at least one VLAN and attach it to an interface.

Fix Information

None
