Bug ID 913013: Racoon daemon may crash once at startup

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
16.0.0,, 16.0.1,,, 16.1.0, 16.1.1, 16.1.2,,, 16.1.3,,,,,, 16.1.4,,,, 17.0.0,,

Opened: May 30, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


When the IKEv1 racoon daemon starts, it may immediately exit with a core file.


Racoon restarts. Because this restart happens when racoon is trying to start, no IPsec IKEv1 tunnels are affected because they are down anyway.


One of the following events may lead to the restart: -- BIG-IP systems start or restart as a standalone device. -- BIG-IP becomes the Active member of High Availability (HA) setup.
