Use TMSH to manually create a traffic-matching criteria object and assign it to the virtual server: tmsh create ltm traffic-matching-criteria <virtual server name>_VS_TMC_OBJ destination-address-inline <destination address of virtual server> destination-port-inline <destination port of virtual server> source-address-inline source-address-list <address list name> } tmsh modify /ltm virtual <virtual server name> traffic-matching-criteria <virtual server name>_VS_TMC_OBJ destination
