Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):

Known Affected Versions:
5.0.0, 5.0.0 HF1, 5.4.0 HF1, 5.4.0 HF2, 5.1.0

Fixed In:

Opened: May 10, 2017

Severity: 2-Critical


BIG-IQ fails to discover/import the configuration of a device with a cookie persistence timeout of zero (0).


Device is undiscoverable and configuration is not manageable by BIG-IQ.


BIG-IP has a cookie persistence profile configured with a timeout of zero (0).


Change the timeout to a non-zero value. This may not be possible if the persistence profile is being used to set a session cookie which requires the timeout to be set to 0.

Fix Information

BIG-IQ can now discover and import configuration when the cookie persistence profile contains a zero (0) timeout.
