Opened: Jul 19, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

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

Impact

Status shown in the prompt does not change.

Conditions

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.

Workaround

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.

Fix Information

None
