Severity: 4-Minor


When manually adding nodes to two Application Connector Proxy instances, the initial state after adding is Disabled. On the BIG-IP this makes the node Forced Offline. This also applies when you manually add identical nodes to a second Application Connector Proxy instance, the initial node state on that proxy is Disabled. If the node was enabled from the other proxy, it will become disabled.


When the node is added on the second proxy, it will mark the node as Forced Offline until you enable it from either proxy.


Two Application Connector Proxy instances connected to a BIG-IP from the same VPC and you are manually adding identical nodes for redundancy.


This does not occur if you are creating nodes using the REST API, because they can be set to Enabled in the same API call.

Fix Information

While filling out the form to add a node, the red circle in the Status column can be clicked, it will turn to Green. This means when you save the new node it will be marked as enabled.
