BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
13.1.0, 13.1.0.1, 13.1.0.2, 13.1.0.3, 13.1.0.4, 13.1.0.5, 13.1.0.6, 13.1.0.7, 13.1.0.8, 13.1.1, 13.1.1.1, 13.1.1.2, 13.1.1.3, 13.1.1.4, 13.1.1.5

Opened: Aug 06, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

An attempt to add a forward action to an LTM policy generated an error. A separate attempt to use iControl REST to list virtual servers also failed.

Impact

In iControl REST, the character causes an error response, which prevents a response with a listing of virtual servers.

Conditions

Insert a non-breaking space ( ) character in the description field of a virtual server entry. Try to create a forward action using the TMUI on BIG-IP version 13.1.0.8, or use iControl REST to list virtual servers.

Workaround

Verify that the description field for a virtual server does not contain any characters like non-breaking spaces. Avoid copying and pasting content into description fields, especially if the source is HTML format since it may contain a non-breaking space character.

Fix Information

None
