Fixed In:
17.1.1

Opened: Sep 08, 2020

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

In an HA sync environment, the REST framework reads the ConfigSync IP address retrieved through the tm/cm/device iCRD API. For an IPv6 address, the REST framework discards the related device certificate, which leads to the REST/gossip/sync failure.

Impact

For an IPv6 address, the REST framework discards the related device certificate, which leads to the REST/gossip/sync failure.

Conditions

Add support for IPv6 ConfigSync IP addresses in the REST framework in an HA sync environment.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

Valid device trust certificates are created with their name set to uniquely generated IPv4 address from the given IPv6 address. This helps in establishing the trust between the hosts thereby eliminating the REST/Gossip-sync failures.
