When running in AWS, BIG-IP failover will not iterate over virtual servers outside of the Common partition in order to signal that those objects should fail over.


The failover event will not succeed for those virtual servers outside of the common partition.


User has created virtual servers in partitions other than Common, configured failover, is running within AWS, and a failover event is triggered.


Create all virtual servers inside of the Common partition.
