Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP TMOS(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, 12.1.2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2, 12.1.3

Fixed In:
13.1.0, 12.1.3.1

Opened: Apr 18, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The LCD on BIG-IP iSeries appliances must detect whether the system is in IPv4 or IPv6 context before retrieving the gateway from the Host via REST. If two gateways are configured (IPv4 and IPv6) only whichever is first in the list is returned via REST and will be set on the Host.

Impact

Incorrect gateway retrieval can create bad configs which would impact traffic resulting in failed ping attempts, destination unreachable errors, request timeouts, etc.

Conditions

If two gateways are configured (IPv4 and IPv6).

Workaround

No workaround at this time.

Fix Information

LCD code now retrieves the correct gateway when switching between IPV4 and IPV6 context.
