Bug ID 621225: LTM log contains misleading error messages for front panel interfaces, "PCI Device not found for Interface X.0"

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:

Fixed In:
13.0.0, 12.1.2

Opened: Oct 07, 2016

Severity: 3-Major


When BIG-IP is initially booted or re-started, there are certain conditions under which the LTM log may report the following message for front panel interfaces, "PCI Device not found for Interface <X.0>", where X can be in the range of 1-6. These messages are misleading because the front panel interfaces do not have any PCI devices associated with them and should not have been flagged as errors.


They are false alarms in the log. The associated interfaces do not have said PCI devices.


i2600/i2800 products intermittently produce these messages upon power-up or BIG-IP re-start.



Fix Information

Removed the possibility of getting false alarm messages in the LTM log for front panel interfaces 1.0-6.0 that claim, "PCI Device not found for Interface X.0".
