Gossip appears Active even when one or more devices go missing from device group. 'restcurl shared/gossip' shows active on both devices, even when the devices are not listed in 'restcurl shared/resolver/device-groups/tm-shared-allBIG-IPs/devices'.


Gossip reports that it is working when it is not.


The conditions under which this issue occurs are unknown. This is an intermittent issue.


-- If the missing device is the active device, run the following command on the Active DSC Device: restcurl -X POST -d '{}' tm/shared/bigip-failover-state -- If the missing device is the standby device, reboot the device, make it active, and then run the following command: restcurl -X POST -d '{}' tm/shared/bigip-failover-state
