Fixed In:
15.0.0

Opened: Dec 14, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When using a dynamic routing configuration, where an OSPF process redistributes routes setting a metric-type from another OSPF process the metric type is not changed.

Impact

Metric type is not changed.

Conditions

Dynamic routing configuration with 2 or more OSPF processes redistributing routes using the "redistribute ospf <other process number> metric-type <type>"

Workaround

Change metric-type using a route-map applied to the redistribute command.

Fix Information

BIG-IP now correctly sets the metric-type on redistribution
