AGC APM(all modules)

Opened: Jun 25, 2020
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Access Guided Configuration (AGC) deployment may fail with the following error: transaction failed:01070734:3: Configuration error: Application (/Common/saml_sp.app/saml_sp) with traffic group (/Common/traffic-group-1) may not use the existing virtual address (/Common/10.10.1.101) with traffic group (/Common/traffic-group-local-only) because they use different traffic groups.

Impact

AGC wizard cannot be used to quickly deploy any APM-related setup.

Conditions

This problem may occur when the following conditions are met: -- BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) configuration has only one network interface assigned. This is usually the default configuration for single NIC deployment of BIG-IP VE in the Google/Azure/AWS Cloud Platform environment. -- The self IP address that belongs to the 'traffic-group-local-only' traffic group is used as the virtual server address during deployment.

Workaround

1. Use any IP address for virtual server configuration other than the self IP address. 2. Use the 'Use existing Virtual Server' option during AGC deployment. That is, create the virtual server manually before using it in AGC. Note: The software supports that option beginning in AGC v7.0.

Fix Information
