Fixed In:

Opened: Nov 27, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The output of a REST call to tm/gtm/wideip/<wideip_kind> returns objects that contain inconsistent values for the property 'lastResortPool'. For instance, for the kind 'aaaa', the output might be: ... "lastResortPool": "aaaa \"\"" ...

Impact

The lastResortValue in the REST response might be confusing for an external orchestrator that consumes the BIG-IP configuration via iControl REST. BIG-IQ, for instance. BIG-IQ might not work as expected with these values.

Conditions

The BIG-IP admin has modified a Wide IP object via tmsh and used the following command structure: tmsh modify gtm wideip <wideip_kind> www.example.com last-resort-pool <pool_kind>

Workaround

Change the Wide IP object via the GUI and set the Last Resort Pool to None, then save the changes.

Fix Information

The tmsh interpreter now enforces the structure 'tmsh modify gtm wideip <wideip_kind> www.example.com last-resort-pool <pool_kind> <pool_name>'.
