Fixed In:

Opened: Jun 23, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When only the management ip address is changed on a BIG-IP, the rest resource /shared/resolver/device-groups/tm-shared-all-big-ips/devices/<uuid> is not updated with the new ip address. This affects the deployment of the SSLO iApp, which relies on the management address.

Impact

SSLO iApp fails to deploy on a standalone BIG-IP.

Conditions

Management IP address is changed on a BIG-IP

Workaround

The workaround is to update the managementAddress by sending a PATCH request to the device in tm-shared-all-big-ips device group. restcurl -X PATCH -d '{"managementAddress":"10.80.99.157"}' /shared/resolver/device-groups/tm-shared-all-big-ips/devices/6911da3d-e3a5-4503-a42f-0ed80440638f

Fix Information

The code is fixed to support a scenario in which only the management IP address is changed. The restjavad daemon must be restarted after the management address was changed.
