Opened: Jan 27, 2016

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Attempting to modify the 'ip-address' attribute of a static ARP / NDP entry results in the following error: Syntax Error: 'ip-address' may not be specified in the context of the 'modify' command. 'ip-address' may be specified using the following commands: create, list, show

Impact

Note: Starting in 11.6.0, the 'ip-address' attribute of an ARP/NDP record can no longer be modified. This is as-designed functionality. However, the BIG-IQ SCVMM plugin fails to work properly as a result, which might impact some configurations. For example, when the LTM gateway device is running versions later than 11.5.3, it could fail because the syntax that worked in 11.5.3 no longer works in 11.6.0 and later.

Conditions

Attempting to modify the 'ip-address' attribute of a static ARP / NDP entry.
