Bug ID 853585: REST WideIP object presents an inconsistent lastResortPool value

Last Modified: Dec 16, 2019

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Opened: Nov 27, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

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 be confused with these values

Conditions

The BIG-IP admin has modified a WideIP 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 wideIP object via the GUI and set the Last Resort Pool to None, then save the changes.

Fix Information

None
