Symptoms

tmsh list displays incorrectly for default values of GTM listener translate-address/translate-port settings.

Impact

tmsh list gtm listener does not display 'translate-address'/'translate-port' when it is set to enabled, but the command does show the values when it is set to disabled. The tmsh list gtm listener command should not show the default settings. This becomes an issue when used with the TMSH merge command, where the value gets set to the LTM virtual server default instead of maintained as the GTM Listener default. This might eventually result in failing traffic.

Conditions

Using the tmsh list command to show translate-address/translate-port for GTM listener.

Workaround

Use tmsh list with 'all-properties' instead.

Fix Information

GTM Listener's translate-address and translate-port field are now always displayed in TMSH commands. This is because there are different defaults in GTM Listeners than the LTM virtual servers. When used with the TMSH merge command, the value gets set to the LTM virtual server default instead of maintained as the GTM Listener default. By always displaying this attribute, no matter what the value is, the merge will always be handled appropriately.
