Severity: 2-Critical


Disabling/Enabling Auto Last Hop for management connections does not take effect. By default, it is enabled and stays enabled after a change.


Auto Last Hop for management connections is still enabled on management interface and the BIG-IP system is still accessible outside local management network.


-- Manual BIG-IP Management Port Configuration is configured. IP address and Network Mask is set, but Management Route is empty. -- Auto Last Hop for management connections is disabled. # tmsh mod ltm global-settings general mgmt-auto-last-hop disable -- BIG-IP system is rebooted. # full_box_reboot


To work around this issue, use the following commands to move the lasthop.modules script to the /etc/sysconfig/sysinit directory: # mv -v /etc/sysconfig/modules/lasthop.modules /etc/sysconfig/sysinit/00activate-early-lasthop.sysinit 2. Reboot the BIG-IP system. # full_box_reboot

Fix Information

The lasthop.modules lasthop.modules script has been moved to the /etc/sysconfig/sysinit directory, so this issue no longer occurs.
