Symptoms

GSLB Pool member Manage page combo box has an issue that can cause the wrong pool member to be removed from the available list when adding a member to the selected list.

Impact

Available pool members might be potentially lost from the combo box until a page reload. Note: The pool members are not gone from the system; they are still present, just not displayed.

Conditions

When adding a pool member via the combo box, if you click the arrow to expand the dropdown list and select a member by clicking on it, that member name is added to the text box. If you then mouse over other members in the dropdown list, and then click the Add button, the system adds the selected member to the list, but also removes the wrong member from the combo box: more specifically, it removes the member that was last highlighted by the mouse over.

Workaround

Either use TMSH or place the mouse cursor away from the combo box, and use the text box to narrow down the content in the dropdown list. Then use the arrow keys and the Enter key to select the desired pool member.

Fix Information

Changed the behavior of the combo box when a member is selected by clicking on it in the dropdown list. Adding a selected pool member as described above will cause the combo box to correctly remove that pool member from the combo box.
