BIG-IP MA-VE(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
13.0.0, 13.0.0 HF1, 13.0.0 HF2, 13.0.0 HF3, 13.0.1, 13.1.0,,,,,,,,, 13.1.1,,,,, 13.1.3,,,,,,, 13.1.4,, 13.1.5,

Opened: Jul 28, 2016

Severity: 3-Major


Some hypervisors don't support MTU value higher than 9000, thus modifying the MTU in [9001-9198] range is not supported.


Trying to set MTU to a value within [9001-9198] will result in BIG-IP responding with "Invalid argument" error.


Running on a hypervisor/host that doesn't support MTU value higher than 9000 for network interfaces.


There is no workaround to this issue as this is the issue on the hypervisor side. Customer should read hypervisor documentation to find out what range of values the given host supports.
