Symptoms

You have BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) v13.1.x affected by Bug ID 774445 :: https://cdn.f5.com/product/bugtracker/ID774445.html and its workaround is in place. echo "device driver vendor_dev 15ad:07b0 unic" >> /config/tmm_init.tcl After upgrading to a newer version, interfaces are down.

Impact

Interfaces are down.

Conditions

-- VE is configured with the workaround described in Bug ID 774445: BIG-IP Virtual Edition does not pass traffic on ESXi 6.7 Update 2 :: https://cdn.f5.com/product/bugtracker/ID774445.html. -- Apply the workaround described in K74921042: BIG-IP VE may fail to process traffic after upgrading the VMware ESXi 6.7 host to Update 2 (or later) :: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K74921042.

Workaround

There are two possible workarounds; F5 recommends you try the first one primarily: Workaround 1 ============ 1. Move the /config/tmm_init.tcl file by running this command: mv /config/tmm_init.tcl /var/tmp/ 2. Reboot the BIG-IP system. Workaround 2 ============ If the interfaces still come up with a status of 'UNINIT' then you can try this workaround, but it is almost never needed: 1. Edit the /config/tmm_init.tcl file and change the following line: device driver vendor_dev 15ad:07b0 unic To this: device driver vendor_dev 15ad:07b0 sock 2. Reboot into into the new software version. 3.Restart TMM: bigstart restart tmm
