The configuration setting 'System :: Preferences :: Require A Consistent Inbound IP For the Entire Web Session' ('sys http auth-pam-validate-ip' in tmsh) does not apply to some menu items, and acts as if the setting is enabled (that a consistent IP address is required) regardless of the BIG-IP configuration.
The 'sys http auth-pam-validate-ip' setting is ineffective on some menu items. These include ASM, AVR, and APM menu items.
BIG-IP administrator accesses the configuration utility from more than one source IP address, using the same session cookie.
Ensure the source IP address used when accessing the configuration utility does not change mid-session. This could happen if your management session is being load balanced across multiple HTTP proxies, for example.
