Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168
Opened: Nov 15, 2018 Severity: 4-Minor
Transparent enforcement by hostname has been moved from the Host Name configuration to the Microservice configuration. REST API Clients that use the backwards-compatible, old endpoint, and send multiple requests in parallel may encounter a deadlock when configuring this element.
Configuration calls fail due to internal DB deadlocks
1) REST API Clients configure policy enforcement transparency by hostname. 2) They use the backwards-compatible, old endpoint to do so. 3) Multiple requests are sent in parallel. Note: This is the case for BIG-IQ managing the BIG-IP system and configuring multiple domain names.
Retry the API calls (or BIG-IQ deployment)
Deadlocks during configuration calls are retried automatically and do not interrupt deployments.
