Symptoms

Loading sys config triggered by MCPD start might fail after removing NICs for VE if the given NICs have been configured as the data-plane interfaces in BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE).

Impact

BIG-IP VE stops working. BIG-IP VE cannot be in ready state since almost all other services depend on MCPD to be up running first.

Conditions

- BIG-IP VE. - Multi-NICs have been configured as the data-plane interfaces. - One or some of these NICs have been removed from the host side.

Workaround

Edit /config/bigip_base.conf to delete the net interfaces that have been removed on the host/hypervisor side.

Fix Information

None
