Opened: Nov 06, 2019

Severity: 3-Major


VIPRION platforms have an automated process of joining a newly inserted blade to a cluster. TMOS install, licensing, and configuration including iAppLX are synchronized from primary to the newly inserted blade automatically without manual intervention. Traffic classification update is not occurring as expected under these conditions.


Traffic policies/rules related to updated installation do not work on inactive slot when it returns to the online state.


-- Traffic classification configured. -- Update installation. -- VIPRION blade is inactive, and later comes online.


To prevent this issue from occurring, ensure that all blades are online when installation begins. If you insert a blade, run config sync manually from the active blade.

Fix Information

Upgrade script now initiates install when the slot becomes active.
