Rebooting after applying BWC to route domain stops vlan traffic on VCMP guest. You will experience connection failures when bandwidth Controller (bwc) and Web Accelerator are enabled. Running the tmsh show sys ha-status all-properties command will indicate that tmm is in "ready-for-world", but the Fail status will read "Yes" when this is triggered.


The system does not comes up fully. TMM does not reach a ready state and will not pass traffic.


BWC enabled and associated with a route domain, Web Accelerator is enabled, and the system is rebooted.


Remove BWC from route domain and then reapply the BWC back.

Fix Information

BWC enabled and associated with a route domain, Web Accelerator enabled, and the system is rebooted, now results in the system and TMM coming up fully and passing traffic.
