Last Modified: Oct 01, 2018

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ ADC(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
5.4.0, 5.4.0 HF1, 5.4.0 HF2

Opened: Feb 21, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

BIG-IP UI added line-feed (CR-LF) to the content type so it breaks into multiple lines.

Impact

Discovery might fail since the string cannot be parsed correctly.

Conditions

A property string is more than 256 characters with CR/LN inside the string.

Workaround

We can get around it without losing any functionality, by using tmsh to add content instead of the BIG-IP user interface. The following is a good example how we handle such case. Keep in mind this is one tmsh command so it musy be in one line. (/Common)(tmos)#tmsh modify ltm profile http-compression httpcompression content-type-include replace-all-with {text/ application/vnd.ms-publisher "application/(xml|x-javascript|javascript|x-ecmascript|ecmascript)" "application/(word|doc|msword|winword|ms-word|x-word|x-msword|vnd.word|vnd.msword|vnd.ms-word)" "application/(xls|excel|msexcel|ms-excel|x-excel|x-xls|xmsexcel|x-ms-excel|vnd.excel|vnd.msexcel|vnd.ms-excel)" "application/(powerpoint|mspowerpoint|ms-powerpoint|x-powerpoint|x-mspowerpoint|vnd.powerpoint|vnd.mspowerpoint |vnd.ms-powerpoint|vnd.ms-pps)" "application/(mpp|msproject|x-msproject|x-ms-project|vnd.ms-project)" "application/(visio|x-visio|vnd.visio|vsd|x-vsd|x-vsd)" "application/(pdf|x-pdf|acrobat|vnd.pdf)"}
