Last Modified: Apr 17, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0,,,,,, 14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 14.1.4,,,,,,, 14.1.5,,,,,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,, 15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,, 15.1.5,, 15.1.6,, 15.1.7, 15.1.8,,, 15.1.9,, 15.1.10,,,

Opened: Jul 19, 2019

Severity: 4-Minor


After running 'promptstatusd -y' to check current failover status, it displays an incorrect Active/Standby status in the CLI prompt.


Status shown in the prompt does not change.


This occurs under the following conditions: 1. Modify the db variable: bigdb failover.state. 2. Check that /var/prompt/ps1 and CLI prompt reflect the setting. 2. Reboot the BIG-IP system.


Do not run 'promptstatusd -y' command manually. The db variable 'failover.state is a status-reporting variable. The system does not report status manually set to something other than the actual status. Note: 'promptstatusd' is not a BIG-IP user command, it is a daemon. It is highly unlikely that manually running this command will produce information that is useful or relevant to the status being sought.
