Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2

Fixed In:
13.0.0, 12.1.2

Opened: Oct 07, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

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.

Impact

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

Conditions

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

Workaround

None

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".
