You are unable to change the management IP from the GUI


The GUI indicates that it will redirect you to the new IP address. You will eventually be redirected but the management IP address is not changed on the BIG-IP device.


This is encountered when using the GUI to change the management IP address via the System :: Platform page.


Use tmsh to create the management IP. This will overwrite the old one. Example: create /sys management-ip [ip address/prefixlen] To view the management IP configurations tmsh list /sys management-ip

Fix Information

Should be able to set the Management IP from GUI as below 1. Go to System->Platform page. 2. Choose Configuration -> Manual and set some other IPv4 address 3. Press the Update button.
