Opened: Apr 09, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

This is a virtual-wire or vlan-group deployment scenario in which there is a BIG-IP system connecting two networks with more than one link. This scenario is referred as 'asymmetric deployment'. In this case. the outgoing packet does not have the correct VLAN configured.

Impact

The connectivity between the endpoints fails.

Conditions

-- Virtual-wire or vlan-group configured. -- BIG-IP system is connecting two networks with more than one link. -- There is more than one virtual-wire/vlan-group to handle the traffic across multiple links. -- Packets belonging to a flow arrive on any link with a valid VLAN.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Transparent forwarding mode now works across multiple VLAN groups or virtual-wire.

Behavior Change

Transparent forwarding mode now works across multiple VLAN groups or virtual-wire.
