Some groups of messages logged by tmipsecd are missing the errdefs annotation that identifies IPsec as the module. Messages reported when tunnels go up and down, or problems with listeners, go only to ltm logs, with no visibility to bigiq logs.


Missing IPsec messages in the bigiq logs.


Missing the IPsec module subset ID.


No workaround at this time.

Fix Information

The IPsec module subset ID has been added to tmipsecd log messages, so those messages will reach bigiq logs. Some log messages previously appearing only in /var/log/ltm now also appear in ipsec.log and also reach bigiq logs.
