BIG-IP All(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
13.1.0,,,,,,,,, 13.1.1,,,,, 13.1.3,,,,,,, 13.1.4,, 13.1.5,

Opened: Jun 15, 2017
Severity: 4-Minor


Within AWS, instances of type i3.16xlarge and r4.16xlarge allow for up to 15 network interfaces. Use of more than 10 interfaces on BIG-IP instances will result in the extra interfaces not functioning. Interfaces 1.10-1.14 will have the same MAC address as 1.1 and not function.


The extra interfaces will not function.


Use of i3.16xlarge or r4.16xlarge instances for BIG-IP with more than 10 network interfaces.


Use multiple instances with fewer interfaces. Potentially use tunnels to separate traffic.
