Opened: Feb 01, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Topology records can contain missing order numbers, duplicate order numbers, and differences in the ordering of topology records on BIG-IP's in a sync group.

Impact

It is difficult to manage the order of topology records. Topology records are evaluated in different orders on different BIG-IP's in a sync group.

Conditions

When adding or deleting topology records or modifying the order of existing topology records, the resulting ordering of the topology records can be inconsistent. This can lead to ordering issues including differences in the ordering of topology records on BIG-IP's in a sync group.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Topology records are now ordered consistently.
