Opened: Oct 15, 2020
Severity: 3-Major


When reading the configuration from /config files, the BIG-IP system may fail to load the configuration regarding a virtual server with a named virtual-address for address in a non-default route domain: err mcpd[21812]: 0107028b:3: The source ( and destination ( addresses for virtual server (/Common/vs1) must be in the same route domain. Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.


The configuration fails to load from disk when the affected objects do not yet exist in running memory or binary cache, for example, during: - Reinstalling - Upgrading - Loading manual changes to the /config/*.conf files - MCP force-reload Other operations such as rebooting, relicensing, and reloading the same configuration (such as 'tmsh load sys config' are not affected.


-- An LTM virtual-address object with a name. -- The virtual-address's address is (or the keyword 'any'). The IPv6 address :: (or the keyword 'any6') is not affected. -- The virtual-address's address is in a route domain other than route domain 0. The route domain can be the partition's default route domain. -- An LTM virtual server that uses the affected address as its destination. Example: tmsh create net route-domain 123 tmsh create ltm virtual-address allzeros-rd123 address tmsh create ltm virtual allzeros-rd123 destination tmsh save sys config


Replace the configuration that uses a named virtual-address with the direct address. Here is an example of the configuration in bigip.conf: ltm virtual-address allzeros-rd123 { address any%123 mask any } ltm virtual allzeros-rd123 { destination allzeros-rd123:0 mask any source } This can be rewritten to remove the virtual-address object, and replace the virtual server destination with the address ( or 'any'): ltm virtual allzeros-rd123 { destination any%123:0 mask any source }
