Symptoms

1. FQDN Node/pools fails to populate with members. 2. An error similar to the following is logged in /var/log/ltm when an FQDN node or pool member is created: err mcpd[####]: 01070356:3: Ratio load balancing feature not licensed.

Impact

Unable to use FDQN nodes/pool members with non-LTM license.

Conditions

1. License a BIG-IP system with non-LTM license lacking the ltm_lb_ratio feature. Such licenses include APM and/or ASM licenses for certain newer platforms which do not support the AAM module. Affected platforms include certain iSeries and Virtual Edition (VE) releases. 2. Configure an FQDN node/pool member. Do not specify a 'ratio' value.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Non-LTM license (ASM, APM, etc.), ephemeral nodes are now created for FQDN nodes/pool members.
