Pool load balancing mode Topology
When you use the Topology load balancing mode, and more than one matching topology record has the same score, the 3-DNS Controller load balances among the matching topology records using the Random load balancing mode. (CR15159)
The following items are known issues in the current release.
|First-Time Boot Utility in the Configuration utility||
On BIG-IP Controllers with the 3-DNS module enabled, the browser-based First-Time Boot Utility does not properly configure the 3-DNS module. To configure BIG-IP Controllers with the 3-DNS module, you must use the config command to run the First-Time Boot utility at the command line.
|Global Availability and Ratio load balancing modes in the Configuration Utility||
On the Modify Load Balancing for [pool name] screen, when you select the Global Availability or Ratio load balancing modes, the popup screens where you configure either the order (for Global Availability) or the ratio (for Ratio) do not appear. To set the order or the ratio for the Global Availability or the Ratio load balancing modes, click Modify Virtual Servers on the toolbar, and set the order or the ratio on the Modify Virtual Servers screen.
|Random data in the Configuration utility screens||
On rare occasions, you may see random data at the end of the tables in the Configuration utility.
|Windows 2000 Server metrics collection||
Table 10.1 on page 10-10, in the 3-DNS Reference Guide, incorrectly indicates that the 3-DNS Controller collects memory usage metrics for the Windows 2000 Server SNMP agent.
