Opened: Sep 15, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A validation error occurred while syncing to a remote device Sync error on unitA.lab.local: Load failed from /Common/unitB.lab.local 01070080:3: The requested pool member is already in use as a self IP address (1.1.2.1) The above is expected as unit B is unable to validate the config for unit A. Incremental sync adds and removes configuration on unit A, hence the error.

Impact

Users are not able to complete the sync using GUI

Conditions

1.Units A and B in HA with manual incremental sync, unit B is active. 2.On unit B add a pool with a member having IP address matching the self IP of unit A. Then delete it. 3.create ltm pool p1 members add { 1.1.2.1:80 } 4.delete ltm pool p1 5.Try config-sync (using GUI). You will end up with a Sync Failed message: A validation error occurred while syncing to a remote device Sync error on unitA.lab.local: Load failed from /Common/unitB.lab.local 01070080:3: The requested pool member is already in use as a self IP address (1.1.2.1
