Opened: Dec 23, 2016

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

After modifying named.conf, apmd can no longer connect via 10001 after restarting the service.

Impact

Apmd could not be started. Following error is logged in /var/log/apm: Dec 14 09:17:39 HQNVLTM13 err apmd[10387]: 01490000:3: ApmD.cpp func: "create_listeners()" line: 1302 Msg: Couldn't bind socket 127.0.0.1:10001 [Address already in use].

Conditions

This only happens when following conditions are met: - DNS recursion is enabled on the BIG-IP DNS system - Loopback address (127.0.0.1) is used to make recursive queries to the BIG-IP DNS system

Workaround

Do not use loopback address (127.0.0.1) to make recursive queries to the BIG-IP DNS system. It is also recommended not to use loopback address since Apmd is already bound to it.

Fix Information

None
