Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

LACP system priority is calculated internally using the system MAC. This occasionally results in priority being calculated as 0, which is not accepted by third party devices, such as Cisco.

Impact

LACP system priority is calculated as 0 which is rejected by Cisco. Note: BIG-IP administrators have no manual control over setting the LACP system priority value.

Conditions

-- LACP is enabled on BIG-IP system. -- The last two octets of system MAC are zero.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

None

Behavior Change

New schema changes added for setting LACP system priority manually.
