Symptoms

The idle timeout on an SSL mirrored connection is constantly refreshed while the connection is idle.

Impact

Idle timeout does not trigger on the connection (idle timeout repeatedly updated).

Conditions

Idle SSL mirrored connection while high availability (HA) mirror connection interrupted between the active and standby (next active) unit.

Workaround

Disable SSL connection mirroring. Resolve issues that interrupt HA mirror connectivity.

Fix Information

Idle timeout on SSL mirrored connection is no longer refreshed when mirror connection is re-established. This is correct behavior.
