Opened: May 10, 2018
Severity: 5-Cosmetic

Symptoms

If an unpopulated front panel interface is disabled, then an SFP inserted and the interface re-enabled, TMSH will continue to display the interface as 'disabled' in 'tmsh show net interface output' commands.

Impact

Output of the command shows the interface is disabled even though it is enabled and fully operational.

Conditions

-- BIG-IP appliance or blade. -- Unpopulated front panel interface is disabled. -- SFP inserted and the interface re-enabled. -- Running the command: tmsh show net interface output.

Workaround

This issue is cosmetic; the interface is functional so it may be used. To correctly identify the enabled/disabled state of the interface, use the following command: tmsh list net interface

Fix Information

None
