Opened: Jul 10, 2020
Severity: 5-Cosmetic

Symptoms

When attempting to test a newly created Pool Member monitor, node address field is disabled, you cannot enter a node address. This prevents from using the Test operation to test this type of monitor in the WebUI.

Impact

The Address field is disabled, with *.* in the field. You cannot enter a node address. The test fails with following message: invalid monitor destination of *.*:80. invalid monitor destination of *.*:443. (:port used to test)

Conditions

-- Create a new Pool Member monitor (not a Node Address monitor). For example, HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, TCP, or Gateway ICMP. -- With the monitor configuration displayed in the WebUI, click the Test tab. -- View the Address field, and try to run the test.

Workaround

Run either of the following TMSH commands: -- tmsh run ltm monitor <type> <name> destination <IP address>:<port> -- tmsh modify ltm monitor <type> <name> destination *:* For example, for HTTP: -- tmsh run ltm monitor http my_http destination <IP address>:<port> -- tmsh modify ltm monitor http my_http destination *:* For example, for HTTPS: -- tmsh run ltm monitor https my_https destination <IP address>:<port> -- tmsh modify ltm monitor https my_https destination *:*
