Opened: Jan 06, 2016

Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

HA connection mirroring is not supported when a ssh profile is attached to a virtual. If a failover occurs, existing ssh connections will not send any traffic through the BIG-IP since the ssh profile (ssh proxy) does not support connection mirroring.

Impact

If a failover occurs, existing ssh connections will not send any traffic through the BIG-IP since the ssh profile (ssh proxy) does not support connection mirroring.

Conditions

Device Group HA needs to be configured with connection mirroring enabled on the virtual and a ssh profile is attached to the virtual.

Workaround

No workaround. Customers are advised to not configure connection mirroring and attach a ssh profile on the same virtual.

Fix Information

None
