Last Modified: Apr 11, 2017

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Access(all modules)

Fixed In:
5.2.0

Opened: Mar 10, 2017
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

When deploying a configuration from BIG-IQ to BIG-IP systems, un-referenced objects are deleted from BIG-IQ and thus, on the BIG-IP systems managed by that BIG-IQ. This deletion can fail on 12.1.0, 12.1.1, 12.1.2, and 13.0 BIG-IP devices.

Impact

The customer will not be able to deploy the configuration, unless they follow the workaround.

Conditions

1. 12.1.0, 12.1.1, 12.1.2, and 13.0 BIG-IP systems have the specific defect (see BZ 647108, 649929). 2. The BIG-IP systems have objects that are not referenced. 3. A deployment is attempted.

Workaround

1. Users can delete the unreferenced objects on BIG-IP systems in advance, or 2. Prior to object import, upgrade all managed BIG-IP systems in advance.

Fix Information

None
