LACP, STP, and LLDP PDUs sent from either of the i2x00 or i4x00 platforms have a VLAN tag added to the PDU when they shouldn't.
Some 3rd party devices may reject the packet. This will adversely affect operation of the affected protocol.
Provision any of the three protocols: LLDP, STP, or LACP and the PDU sent by the BIG-IP will incorrectly have a VLAN tag with a tag-id of 0 added to the PDU.
This release ensures that the VLAN tag is stripped before the PDU is sent onto the wire.
