Symptoms

Error messages similar to this are present in the ltm log: -- err mcpd[9369]: 01020036:3: The requested monitor instance (/part10/test_mon 90.90.90.90%10 443 ltm-pool-member) was not found. -- err mcpd[9369]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Configuration from primary failed validation: 01020036:3: The requested monitor instance (/part10/test_mon 90.90.90.90%10 443 ltm-pool-member) was not found.

Impact

Monitor instances in a partition that uses a non-default route domain can fail validation on secondary blades. mcpd restarts.

Conditions

A chassis-based system with multiple blades. This can occur a few different ways: - A monitor is attached to an object that is configured in a partition that uses a non-default route domain, but the address of the monitor is explicitly using the default route domain (e.g. %0). - A monitor defined in the Common partition is attached to an object from a partition where the default route domain is different.

Workaround

There are two possible workarounds: -- Move the monitor to the /Common/ partition and do not specify %0 in the Alias Address. -- Do not use monitors from other partitions where the default route domain is different.

Fix Information

The complete state for addresses on the primary blade is propagated to secondary blades.
