When Self IP address is added/updated via tmsh, Configuration utility, or "tmsh load sys config merge" command, BIG-IP routing daemon updates routing information in the routing table. If Dynamic Routing is configured on BIG-IP and affected Self IP route has the same destination as routes, gathered from routing protocols, then on adding or changing this Self IP address, the corresponding route from routing table has to be updated, usually it means that a new route is added to the routing table and the old one is removed, but a new route is added and then gets deleted from the routing table instead of old one.


The routing information isn't updated. The Self IP route isn't involved in routing decisions and therefore traffic, which has to use Self IP route for routing, uses out of date, incorrect routing information and is sent to a wrong destination.


1) There is a route in the routing table with the same destination signature as a Self IP address' route we are planning to add or update. Usually this situation occurs when Dynamic Routing is configured on BIG-IP and a dynamic route is added to the routing table. 2) The Self IP is added or updated.


There is no workaround at this time.
