Opened: Jun 03, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The Maximum Members Per Trunk limits is 8 or 16 depending on platform. This is due to 1. The limitation of an SDK from a third party vendor. 2. The number of external interfaces actually provided by the platform.

Impact

The number of interfaces per trunk is limited to either 8 or 16.

Conditions

These platform limits are on the BIG-IP 10000 appliance and B2400, B4300, and B4450 blades.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

New limit of 32 is implemented for the BIG-IP 10000 appliance, and on VIPRION 2400 and VIPRION 4300. New limit 64 is implemented for VIPRION 4450N.
