Opened: Jul 22, 2018
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

When IPv6 is used for transferring data from BIG-IP systems to BIG-IQ DCD nodes, no traffic arrives to the BIG-IQ.

Impact

No statistics from BIG-IP systems are collected.

Conditions

-- DCD node uses IPv6 interface for collecting data from BIG-IP systems. -- BIG-IP is registered on BIG-IQ as 'BIG-IP device' the regular way (not necessary via IPv6 management interface).

Workaround

Use IPv4 addresses instead.

Fix Information

You can now use IPv6 addresses in BIG-IP systems, and statistics arrive to the BIG-IQ.
