Bug ID 942425: After failover, the newly active device fences itself off, possibly removing any attached DCD's

Last Modified: Jul 12, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IQ Platform(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
7.1.0,,,, 7.1.6,, 7.1.7,,, 7.1.8,,,,,, 7.1.9,,,

Opened: Sep 03, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


Failover occurs and the newly active device continues to monitor a supposed high availability (HA) state, eventually leading it to fence itself off. This means any attached DCD's will be removed and required to be manually added back.


You will be required to restart system and add any DCD's back manually.


If Quorum goes offline during failover then the new standalone will think a resource is down and fence itself off.
