631582-4 : Administrative interface enhancement

Vulnerability Solution Article: K55792317


625376-1 : In some cases, download of PAC file by edge client may fail

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Edge client may fail to download PAC file and incorrectly apply proxy configuration after VPN connection.

Conditions:
- User machine proxy configuration points to a proxy auto configuration file.
- Network access proxy configuration points to a proxy auto configuration file.
- PAC file URI in either case has uppercase characters.
- PAC file is hosted on a server where resource names are case sensitive.

Impact:
PAC file download will fail and client will use incorrect proxy settings due to unavailability of PAC file.

Workaround:
Use only lowercase characters in PAC file URI.

Fix:
Now Edge client can download PAC files from URIs that have uppercase as well as lowercase characters.


624616-3 : Safenet uninstall is unable to remove libgem.so

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When uninstalling Safenet client 6.2 from a BIG-IP chassis, it can't remove libgem.so and generates the following error:

rm: cannot remove `/usr/lib64/openssl/engines/libgem.so': Read-only file system.

Conditions:
This can be triggered when uninstalling the safenet client using the command safenet-sync.sh -u.

Impact:
Uninstall is unable to complete.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
When uninstalling Safenet client 6.2 from a BIG-IP chassis, the system can now remove libgem.so, so there is no error condition, and uninstall can complete as expected.

624263-3 : iControl REST API sets non-default profile prop to "none"; properties not present in iControl REST API responseiControl REST API, sets profile's non-default property value as "none"; properties missing in iControl REST API response

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
For profiles, iControl REST does not provide visibility for profile property override when "none" is specified, including references, passwords, and array of strings.

Conditions:
-- Use iControl REST API.
-- string, enum, or vector of enum/string property explicitly set to "none" for a component within any REST API endpoint specialized in /etc/icrd.conf.

Impact:
The iControl REST API response skips these elements. iControl REST does not provide visibility for profile property overrides.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
iControl REST API now returns elements (i.e., string, enum, or vector of enum/string property that is explicitly set to "none" for a component within any REST API endpoint specialized in /etc/icrd.conf) with a value "none". The exclusion to this policy is the secured attributes. Secured attributes are always excluded from the iControl REST API response.


624245 : Hung tasks leading to system problems and lack of management access via ssh/GUI

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Problems with bigd, snmpd and other daemons. System becomes inaccessible via ssh and GUI.

Hung tasks recorded in kern logs, typically snmpd, bigd, chmand, big3d hung.

Caused by Centos kernel bug in netlink code where mutex is left locked on error path.

Conditions:
Seen when a system is handling heavy SNMP traffic and memory is low.

Impact:
SNMP traffic fails with hung tasks. Reboot required.

Workaround:
Apparently reducing SNMP load helps avoid/postpone the problem.


624091 : DHCP relay is not forwarding all of the DHCPOFFERS to clients

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
When upgrading from v11.5.3 to v11.6.1, DHCPOFFER packets got silently dropped.

Conditions:
If DHCP clients send broadcast DHCP packets with non-zero unicast source IP address via BIG-IP, and regular DHCP discovery packets(0.0.0.0 source IP addrees), multiple client connection flows are created, after some are aged out, BIG-IP may stop relay DHCP server replies back to clients.

Impact:
BIG-IP will stop to relay DHCPOFFER and DHCPACK back
to DHCP clients

Workaround:
Manually delete all system connection flows by doing "delete sys conn" under tmsh.


623562-1 : Large POSTs rejected after policy already completed

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When the policy has already completed, access still rejects POSTs greater than 64k. Client will see a reset, and these error messages will appear on the BIG-IP:

/var/log/ltm
Oct 18 19:10:04 bigip6 err tmm[14242]: 01230140:3: RST sent from 10.2.61.80:8080 to 10.2.61.10:55280, [0x1d4cb2c:2863] APM HTTP body too big

/var/log/apm
Oct 19 09:42:37 bigip3922mgmt err tmm1[7636]: 01490514:3: (null):Common:00000000: Access encountered error: ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED. File: ../modules/hudfilter/access/access.c, Function: hud_access_process_ingress, Line: 2960

Conditions:
Policy has already been fully evaluated to allow. Then the client sends a large POST. Only applies to POSTs made to '/'. Would not apply if the URL is something else like '/test'. Also does not apply to clientless modes, where the db key tmm.access.maxrequestbodysize can be used to increase the maximum POST body size allowed.

Impact:
Clients are unable to send POST bodies to '/' that are larger than 64kb, even though the policy has already been evaluated to allow.

Workaround:
Move the resource from '/' to another URL.

Fix:
The logic of '/' in this area was changed to be consistent with other URLs.


623401-4 : Intermittent OCSP request failures due to non-optimal default TCP profile setting

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The connection between BIG-IP and OCSP responder is not reliable since it uses the default internal TCP configuration which doesn't fit the usage well.

Conditions:
When the OCSP stapling option is enabled in the clientSSL profile that is in use by a virtual server.

Impact:
The BIG-IP as a SSL server fails to staple the OCSP response to the SSL client. In other words, the certificate status messages are not added in the Server Hello message in the TLS handshakes to the SSL client.

Workaround:
The fix proposed an optimal TCP configuration used by the connection between BIG-IP and OCSP responder which makes the connection reliable now. Therefore the virtual server can now always correctly staple the certificate status in the Server Hello message to the SSL client.


623135 : BIG-IP virtual server TCP sequence numbers vulnerability (CVE-2002-1463)

622830 : LDAP type CRLDP is parsed incorrectly

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
After upgrading to 11.6.1 HF1, CRLDP authentication stopped working.

It can be seen from following sample log that the URL is not parsed correctly:

warning apd[15314]: 0149015e:4: fc98d22d: CRLDP Auth agent: CRL lookup failed for LDAP url 'ldap::::389//crl.certificate.../..../certificaterevocationlist?certificateRevocationList' reason 'Invalid CRLDP URL.

Conditions:
The problem occurs only when LDAP type CRLDP is available in the client certificate and it is used from the CRL Distribution Points list.

Impact:
Users may fail access policy evaluation when client certification is used.

Workaround:
Configure other than LDAP type distribution points in the Certificate or if multiple distribution points are present in the client certificate, make sure other than LDAP type scheme succeeds before hitting LDAP CRLDP.

Fix:
The system now parses LDAP type CRLDP URL correctly, so after upgrading, CRLDP authentication now works as expected.


622244-1 : Edge client can fail to upgrade when always connected is selected

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Attempt to upgrade an Edge client may fail if the Always Connected mode is enabled

Conditions:
Always Connected is selected in BIG-IP when upgrading the client

Impact:
Upgrade will fail

Workaround:
Disable the Always Connected mode

Fix:
Upgrade functions as intended regardless of connection mode


622166 : HTTP GET requests with HTTP::cookie iRule command receive no response

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
HTTP GET requests to virtual servers using the command "HTTP::cookie <name> <value>" in HTTP_REQUEST iRule event handlers do not get a response.

Conditions:
An LTM virtual server with an iRule including the HTTP::cookie command.

Impact:
No response is received by the client.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
HTTP GET requests to virtual servers using the command "HTTP::cookie <name> <value>" in HTTP_REQUEST iRule event handlers now get a response as expected.


621524-3 : Processing Timeout When Viewing a Request with 300+ Violations

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
When attempting to view a request that triggered hundreds or thousands of violations, a timeout is encountered.

Conditions:
Attempting to view a request that triggered hundreds or thousands of violations

Impact:
A timeout is encountered.

Workaround:
increase the "max_execution_time" timeout in /usr/loca/lib/php.ini from 30 to 240 seconds.

Fix:
Processing high violation requests is now more efficient.


621417-1 : sys-icheck error for /usr/share/defaults/bigip_base.conf in AWS.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
On a BIG-IP deployed in AWS cloud, sys-icheck reports size an md5 errors for /usr/share/defaults/BIG-IP_base.conf file as following:

ERROR: S.5...... c /usr/share/defaults/BIG-IP_base.conf (no backup)

Conditions:
BIG-IP deployed in AWS cloud.

Impact:
sys-icheck reports "rpm --verify" size and md5 errors for /usr/share/defaults/BIG-IP_base.conf. This doesn't have any functional impact on the product but looks like factory config file was modified incorrectly by a user/application.

Workaround:
No workaround exists for this issue.

Fix:
sys-icheck error for /usr/share/defaults/BIG-IP_base.conf in AWS.


621242 : Reserve enough space in the image for future upgrades.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Increased the reserved free space in VM image from 15% to 30% to accommodate upgrades to future versions. Each next version tends to be bigger and require more disk space to install. The increased reserved space will allow upgrading to at least next 2 versions.

Conditions:
VE in local hypervisors and VE in the Cloud (AWS, Azure).

Impact:
Extends the disk image to reserve more disk space for upgrades.

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
Increased the reserved free space on VE images.


621239-1 : Certain DNS queries bypass DNS Cache RPZ filter.

Component: Global Traffic Manager (DNS)

Symptoms:
A DNS query with the DO-bit set to 1 will bypass the RPZ filter on a DNS Cache.

Conditions:
A DNS Cache configured with RPZ.

Impact:
Queries with DO-bit set to 1 will bypass the RPZ filter and be answered normally.

Fix:
The DO-bit is now ignored with respect to RPZ filtering.


621202-1 : Portal Access: document.write() with very long string as argument may be handled incorrectly.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
JavaScript code may include document.write() calls with very long strings (> 60K). In some cases these strings may be rewritten incorrectly.

Conditions:
- document.write() with very long string as argument.
- argument string contains HTML tags with quoted attribute values which include '>' inside.

Impact:
rewritten HTML page may not work correctly.

Fix:
Now document.write() calls with long HTML strings are handled correctly by Portal Access.


620922-1 : Online help for Network Access needs update

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Online help for advanced network settings does not tell users that if they fill in the DNS Address Space setting, they also need to install the DNS Relay Proxy service on Windows-based systems to get the desired result.

Conditions:
Split tunneling configured. Windows-based system in use. DNS Address Space setting filled in.

Impact:
Use of DNS Address Space setting does not provide the expected result.

Workaround:
Install the DNS Relay Proxy server on Windows-based systems.

Fix:
Network Access online help now states that for DNS Address Space to work properly on a Windows-based system, the DNS Relay Proxy service must be installed and running on the client.


620712-1 : Added better search capabilities on the Pool Members Manage & Pool Create page.

Component: Global Traffic Manager (DNS)

Symptoms:
Large amount of virtual servers were hard to manage on the GSLB Pool Member Manage page.

Conditions:
Having large amount of virtual servers/wide ips

Impact:
Poor usability.

Workaround:
No workaround.

Fix:
The GSLB Pool Member Manage page now has a new search feature in the form of a combo box to allow for better management of large amount of virtual servers.

Behavior Change:
The GSLB Pool Member Manage page now has the new search feature to allow for better management of large amount of virtual servers.


620614-2 : Citrix PNAgent replacement mode: iOS Citrix receiver fails to add new store account

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
iOS Citrix receiver fails to add new store account and touching on the Save option after providing the credentials displays "Loading" and comes back to previous save option.

Provision sufficient memory for the TMM or reduce load.

Fix:
The fix was to properly handle the failure allocating memory.


618517-2 : bigd may falsely complain of a file descriptor leak when it cannot open its debug log file

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
- On 11.6.1, bigd will report erroneously mark pool members down and messags similar to the following will be seen in the ltm log file:

Sep 23 10:45:59 bipve1 warning bigd[7413]: 01060154:4: Bigd PID 7413 throttling monitor instance probe because file descriptor limit 65436 reached.

- On 12.1.x, this bug has negligible impact.

Conditions:
Monitoring must be in use, bigd debug logging must be enabled, and the bigd debug log file (/var/log/bigdlog) must be full.

Impact:
- On 11.6.1 this can cause bigd to stop monitoring, resulting in pool members being marked down erroneously.

- In 12.1.x, some of the underlying logging code changed and there is no real impact.

Workaround:
You can rotate the log file, using the following command:
logrotate -f bigdlog

Fix:
Stopped bigd from thinking it was out of file descriptors when it was unable to open its debug log file.

Vulnerability Solution Article: K01276005


617862-1 : Fastl4 handshake timeout is absolute instead of relative

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TCP connections that are pending completion of the three-way handshake are expired based on the absolute value of handshake timeout. For example, if handshake timeout is 5 seconds, then the connection is reset after 5 seconds of receiving the initial SYN from the client.

Conditions:
A TCP connection in three-way handshake.

Impact:
Connections are expired prematurely if they are still in three-way handshake.

Workaround:
Disable handshake timeout.

Impact of workaround: Your TCP handshake will not prematurely timeout and connections remains open until the Idle Timeout expires.

Fix:
The handshake timeout now expires based on idleness of the connection, taking into consideration of any SYN retransmissions, etc., that might occur.


617858-1 : bigd core when using Tcl monitors

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If a Tcl monitor encounters an error, it may exit with an assert which causes bigd to core.

Conditions:
This can occur rarely when Tcl monitors are in use (specifically, SMTP, FTP, IMAP, POP3 monitors).

Impact:
bigd can core, which temporarily suspends monitoring while bigd restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Now, when a Tcl monitor encounters an error, it no longer exits with an assert, so bigd no longer cores.

616242-2 : basic_string::compare error in encrypted SSL key file if the first line of the file is blank

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Trying to load a configuration that references an encrypted SSL key file may fail if the first line of the SSL key file is blank. When this occurs, the system will report a vague error message:

    01070711:3: basic_string::compare

If this happens during an upgrade, the system will not load the configuration under the new software version, and will remain inoperative.

Conditions:
This can occur if an affected configuration is present on a system running BIG-IP v11.3.0 or earlier, and is upgraded to BIG-IP v11.4.0 through v12.1.1.

Impact:
Configuration fails to load on upgrade with extremely unhelpful error message, and absolutely no indication as to what file was being processed at the time (or that this relates to a filestore file).

Workaround:
Remove the newlines at the beginning of any SSL key files that begin with a newline. During an upgrade scenario, edit the files in the filestore.


616215-2 : TMM can core when using LB::detach and TCP::notify commands in an iRule

614865-2 : Overwrite flag in iControl functions key/certificate_import_from_pem functions is ignored and might result in errors.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Overwrite flag in iControl functions key/certificate_import_from_pem functions is ignored and might result in errors.

Specifically, the functions are:
key_import_from_pem()
certificate_import_from_pem()
key_import_from_pem_v2()
certificate_import_from_pem_v2()

Conditions:
When there is an existing key or certificate on the BIG-IP system, and you want to overwrite them using key_import_from_pem(), certificate_import_from_pem(), key_import_from_pem_v2(), or certificate_import_from_pem_v2() iControl calls, it results in errors stating that the key or certificate already exists on the BIG-IP system.

Impact:
Cannot overwrite the key/certificate file-objects using these iControl calls.

Workaround:
There are two workarounds:
- Delete and import the key/certificate using key_import_from_pem(), certificate_import_from_pem(), key_import_from_pem_v2(), or certificate_import_from_pem_v2() iControl calls.

- Use key_import_from_file and certificate_import_from_file iControl calls as an alternative to import key/certificate from a file.

Fix:
Overwrite flag in iControl functions key/certificate_import_from_pem_v2() functions are now processed correctly and no longer produce errors.

Fix:
TPS that AVR calculates for DoS now reflects the actual TPS.


613673-1 : Pool members may not be marked up and/or there might be a slight delay in monitors

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A UDP monitor might fail to mark a pool member up even when the pool member is up.

Other monitor types may mark a pool member down.

A slight delay (less than 0.1 seconds) might be noticed in monitor traffic sent by the BIG-IP.

Conditions:
To experience the incorrect pool member status issue, there is generally some other monitor on the system that is legitimately down.

To experience the delay, run an affected version. The issue has been observed with TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS monitors.

Impact:
Incorrect pool member status or pool member flapping.

Connections to monitored pool members might last slightly longer than necessary.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
In this release, the system now correctly sets pool member status and connections to monitored pool members no longer last longer than necessary.

Conditions:
A valid and an expired certificate co-exist in the certificate store.

Impact:
Machine Certificate check fails.

Workaround:
Remove the expired certificate from the store.

Fix:
When a valid and an expired certificate co-exist, the system now matches the valid certificate.

Occasionally the logging system prints out a blank message, similar to the following example:

-- err mcpd[19114]: 01070711:3:

For this log statement, there is text associated with the error in the bigip_mcpd_error_defs.in file, so something should be logged.

Conditions:
The problem is the result of an exception handler issue in mcpd's File Object validator. The damaged logs can come from anywhere in mcpd, but appear only after a File Object configuration change fails validation. If the problem occurs, it will happen only once per validation error. The damage caused by the exception handler is automatically corrected when the system rewrites the log.

Impact:
Except for the missing log text, the state and behavior of the BIG-IP system is unaffected.

Workaround:
None. The problem corrects automatically when the system rewrites the log.

Fix:
The logging system prints out a blank message in response to failed file object configuration change validations.


609084-1 : Max number of chunks not configurable above 1000 chunks

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
If you want to support requests larger than 1000 chunks, the request is blocked and the system posts the following message in the ASM event log:

Unparsable request content Chunks number exceeds request chunks limit: 1000.

Conditions:
This occurs when the request exceeds 1000 chunks.

Impact:
Requests that are valid from the server side are being rejected.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release adds an internal parameter "request_max_chunks_number" to enable configuring a greater than 1000 max number of chunks. The default value is 1000

Behavior Change:
This release adds an internal parameter "request_max_chunks_number" to enable configuring a greater than 1000 max number of chunks. The default value is 1000


608742-4 : DHCP: DHCP renew ack messages from server are getting dropped by BIGIP in Forward mode.

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
When BIGIP is configured in Forwarding mode, renewal ack message from server in response to unicast renewal message from DHCP clients is getting dropped.

Conditions:
BIG IP in forwarding mode. DHCP clients sending unicast renewal message to DHCP server

Impact:
Unicast DHCP renewal requests are not acked. DHCP clients will send broadcast renewal messages and will be acked by servers.

Workaround:
After unable to receive acks from DHCP servers for unicast DHCP renewal messages, DHCP client will send broadcast DHCP renewal messages and will be acked by DHCP server and acks forwarded by BIGIP and received by DHCP clients.


608408-4 : TMM may restart if SSO plugin configuration initialization fails due to internal error in tmconf library

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
TMM may restart when new SAML SSO configuration is created on BIG-IP systems as SAML IdP. This could also happen when BIG-IP is restarted, or a saved configuration containing SAML SSO objects is loaded on running BIG-IP.

Conditions:
All of the following
- The BIG-IP system is used as SAML IdP
- New SAML SSO configuration is added on BIG-IP
- Rarely occurring internal tmconf error happens when processing newly added configuration.

Impact:
TMM may restart.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
TMM no longer restarts when internal error happens upon adding new SAML SSO configurations. Instead, the system logs the following error in /var/log/apm to indicate problematic configuration object: Internal error processing sso config <name>.


608320-4 : iControl REST API sets non-default persistence profile prop to "none"; properties not present in iControl REST API responseiControl REST API, sets persistence profile's non-default property value as "none"; properties missing in iControl REST API response

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
For persistence profiles, iControl REST does not provide visibility for property override when "none" is specified, including references, passwords, and array of strings.

Conditions:
-- Use iControl REST API with persistence profiles.
-- string, enum, or vector of enum/string property explicitly set to "none" for a component within any REST API endpoint specialized in /etc/icrd.conf.

Impact:
The iControl REST API response skips these elements. iControl REST does not provide visibility for persistence profile property overrides.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
iControl REST API now returns persistence profile elements (i.e., string, enum , or vector of enum/string property that is explicitly set to "none" for a component within any REST API endpoint specialized in /etc/icrd.conf) with a value "none". The exclusion to this policy is the secured attributes. Secured attributes are always excluded from the iControl REST API response.


607713-4 : SIP Parser fails header with multiple sequential separators inside quoted string.

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
SIP Parser fails header with multiple sequential separators inside quoted string.

Conditions:
If a SIP header contains multiple attribute separators ',' or ';' in an attribute.

Impact:
The SIP parser flags the message as an error. If this occurs in a quote within the attribute, it should be allowed, but it will still fail, Valid SIP messages are failing to be parsed.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The SIP parser has been improved to ignore multiple sequential separators if within quotes.


607360-2 : Safenet 6.2 library missing after upgrade

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
After upgrading BIG-IP, a symbolic link is missing to the core Safenet library.

Conditions:
This occurs when a BIG-IP installation with Safenet 6.2 already installed is upgraded.

Impact:
Safenet 6.2 is not functional.

Workaround:
Reinstall Safenet 6.2. Or,

run this command at all blades of BIG-IP after the installation.

ln -sf /shared/safenet/toolkit/libgem.so /usr/lib64/openssl/engines/libgem.so

Fix:
Add symbolic link to libgem at time of pkcs11d daemon start/restart.


607304-2 : TMM is killed by SOD (missing heartbeat) during geoip_reload performing munmap.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM is killed by SOD (missing heartbeat) during geoip_reload performing munmap.

Conditions:
This can occur under normal operation, while running the geo_update command.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.


606575-3 : Request-oriented OneConnect load balancing ends when the server returns an error status code.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Request-oriented OneConnect load balancing ends when the server returns an error status code.

Conditions:
OneConnect is enabled and the server responds with a HTTP error status code.

Impact:
The client remains connected to the server, and no further load-balancing decisions are made.

Workaround:
It may be possible to detect the HTTP status code in the response, and manually detach the client-side.

To do so, use an iRule similar to the following:

when HTTP_RESPONSE {
    if { [HTTP::status] == 200 } { return }
    if { [HTTP::status] == 401 } {
        set auth_header [string tolower [HTTP::header values "WWW-Authenticate"]]
        if { $auth_header contains "negotiate" || $auth_header contains "ntlm" } {
            # Connection-oriented auth. System should already be doing the right thing
            unset auth_header
            return
        }

        unset auth_header
    }

    catch { ONECONNECT::detach enable }
}.

Note: These workarounds should not be used when the backend server is using connection-oriented HTTP authentication (e.g., NTLM or Negotiate authentication).

Fix:
With OneConnect, the client-side remains detachable when the server-side returns an HTTP error status code.


606540-1 : DB variable changed via GUI does not sync across HA group

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If a configuration change is made in the BIG-IP GUI which is backed by a DB variable, the change is not synced to other devices in the same sync-failover device group.
If the same db variable change is made using the Traffic Management Shell (tmsh), the db variable change will be synced to other devices in the same sync-failover device group.

Note that db variable changes are never synced to devices in sync-only device groups.

Conditions:
1. BIG-IP systems in HA group, provisioned with modules (in addition to LTM) which create their own device groups (for example, ASM).
2. Original sync-failover device group replaced by a different sync-failover device group.
3. Using the GUI to change a configuration item which is backed by a DB variable.
Examples include:
failover.standby.linkdowntime (GUI: Device Management :: Device Groups : <fodg_name> : Failover : Link Down Time on Failover )
statemirror.clustermirroring (GUI: Device Management :: Devices : <device_name> : Cluster Options )

Impact:
Configuration of devices within a sync-failover device group may not be synchronized as expected.

Workaround:
To force synchronization of a db variable change made via the GUI, use a tmsh command of the following form:

tmsh modify cm device-group <sync-failover device group name> devices modify { <device name> { set-sync-leader } }

If the sync-failover device group is not automatically synced, manually sync the device group:

tmsh run cm config-sync to-group <sync-failover device group name>


To avoid creating a db variable change that will not be synchronized across sync-failover device group members, change the configuration or db variable using tmsh:

tmsh modify sys db <variable name> value <new value>

If the sync-failover device group is not automatically synced, manually sync the device group:

tmsh run cm config-sync to-group <sync-failover device group name>

Fix:
DB variable changed via GUI now syncs across HA group as expected.


605921 : scriptd and mcpd cores following multiple failovers due to bd (asm)

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
You encounter multiple failovers due to BD (asm) failure and mcpd coring. the GUI is sluggish, then bd becomes unresponsive or mcpd cores.

Conditions:
Apply policies on a device at the same time that it becomes the Master Blade.

Impact:
A deadlock condition can occur when policies are being applied at the same time as a change arrives in the cluster config.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Fixed a deadlock condition when applying policies.


605865-2 : Debug TMM produces core on certain ICMP PMTUD packets

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The debug TMM will produce a core on the assert "cwnd or ssthresh too low" when receiving an ICMP PMTUD packet with an MTU larger than the current MTU. This does not affect the default TMM.

Conditions:
While using the debug TMM, an ICMP PMTUD packet is received with an MTU larger than the current MTU.

Impact:
Debug TMM crashes on assert "cwnd or ssthresh too low." Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Block incoming ICMP PMTUD packets. Note that this will cause Path MTU Discovery to fail, and IP packets sent by the BIG-IP system with the Don't Fragment (DF) bit set may be dropped silently if the MTUs of the devices on the path are configured incorrectly.

Fix:
The system now always updates TCP MSS after an ICMP PMTUD packet, so there is no debug TMM core.


605616-3 : Creating 256 Fundamental Security policies will result in an out of memory error

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
ASM out of memory error will occur when 256 fundamental security policies are created.

Conditions:
Create 256 fundamental security policies.

Impact:
Out of memory error.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Improved memory allocations for shared XML profiles to enable more than 256 fundamental security policies.


605476-2 : istatsd can core when reading corrupt stats files.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
-- The istatsd process produces a core file in the /shared/core directory.

Conditions:
This issue occurs when the following condition is met:

The istatsd process attempts to read a corrupt iStats segment file with duplicate FIDs.

Under these conditions, the istatsd process continually consumes memory which produces a core causing the istatsd process to restart.

Impact:
iStatsd process will restart due to resource exhaustion.

Workaround:
To work around this issue, you can remove the iStats files and restart the istatsd processes. To do so, perform the following procedure:

Impact of workaround: This workaround will cause all statistics in the iStats files to reset.

1. Log in to the BIG-IP command line.
2. To stop the istatsd and related processes, type the following command:
tmsh stop sys service istatsd avrd merged.

3. To delete the iStats files, type the following command:
find /var/tmstat2/ -depth -type f -delete.

4. To start the istatsd and related processes, type the following command:
tmsh start sys service istatsd avrd merged.

Fix:
Added a fix to protect against a continually reading a segment file that is corrupted and has Duplicate Fids.


605427-2 : TMM may crash when adding and removing virtual servers with security log profiles

Component: Advanced Firewall Manager

Symptoms:

Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Fix:
TMM no longer crashes with multiple creation, modification and deletion of many virtual servers with security log profiles attached.


604977-3 : Wrong alert when DTLS cookie size is 32

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When ServerSSL profile using DTLS receives cookie with length of 32 bytes it throws fatal alert.

Conditions:
Another LTM with ClientSSL profile issues 32byte long cookie.

Impact:
DTLS with cookie size 32 is not supported.


604931-1 : bgpd might core on restarting process with BGP debug enabled.

Component: TMOS

Conditions:
- BGP configured and peering established.
- BGP debugging enabled.
- BGP process is restarted gracefully.

Impact:
bgpd may crash.

Workaround:
Disable BGP debug.

Fix:
The bgpd might core on restarting process with BGP debug enabled.


604767-4 : Importing SAML IdP's metadata on BIG-IP as SP may result in not complete configuration of IdP connector object.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When importing SAML IdP's metadata, certificate object might not be assigned as 'idp-certificate' value of saml-idp-connector object.

Conditions:
BIG-IP is used as SAML SP.

Impact:
Described behavior will result in misconfiguration. SAML WebSSO will subsequently fail.

Workaround:
Manually assign imported certificate as a 'idp-certificate' value of saml-idp-connector object.


604442-1 : iControl log

Vulnerability Solution Article: K12685114


603945-1 : BD config update should be considered as config addition in case of update failure

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
A configuration update fails when the system cannot find the item to update. Configuration failures are shown in bd.log.

Conditions:
The condition that leads to this scenario is not clear and is still under investigation.

Impact:
The update fails and the entity is not added.

Workaround:
Delete the faulty entity and re-add, and then issue the following command: restart asm.

This fixes the issue in the cases in which it is a single entity.

Fix:
A configuration update no longer fails when the system cannot find the item to update. Now, the system adds the item with its updated value if the entity does not already exist. Otherwise, the operation updates the value of the existing entry.


603606 : tmm core

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A tmm core occurrs with the following log message: notice panic: ../kern/page_alloc.c:521: Assertion "vmem_hashlist_remove not found" failed.

Conditions:
It is not known exactly what triggers this condition.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.


603598-2 : big3d memory under extreme load conditions

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
big3d memory consumption can grow if big3d is unable to process monitor requests in a timely fashion.

This can be seen by monitoring the memory consumption of big3d using standard OS tools such as top.

Conditions:
big3d maintains a queue for monitor requests.
Incoming monitor requests are first placed in the Pending queue.
Requests are moved from the Pending queue to the Active queue, if there is room in the Active queue.

When the Pending queue is full, there is no room for the Monitor Request. big3d attempts to clean up the Monitor request, but fails to completely free the memory.
This might result in a significant memory leak.

For this to happen, the Active queue must be full as well as the Pending queue.

One possible condition that might cause this is if multiple Monitors time out. This results in Monitors having long life times, which keeps the Active queue full.

Thus the Pending queue might become full and the memory leak can occur.

In BIG-IP 11.1.0 versions of big3d,
the Active queue has 256 slots and
the Pending queue has 4096 slots.

In BIG-IP 11.1.0-hf3, the queue sizes were expanded to
2048 for the Active queue and 16384 for the Pending queue.

Since the queues were smaller n versions prior to
11.1.0-hf3, this leaks is more likely to manifest itself.

In later versions, the leak is still possible, but is less likely to occur.

Impact:
big3d memory consumption grows unbounded. This might result in a big3d restart or memory starvation of other processes.

Workaround:
This can be partially mitigated by ensuring that monitors
settings are reasonable and that big3d is not overloaded.

This will minimize the chances that the Pending queue
does not become full.

There is no mechanism to resize the queues.

Fix:
When a monitor request is unable to be placed in the queue, the memory for the request is freed properly.


603479-1 : "ASM starting" while it's already running, causing the restart of all ASM daemons

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
ASM daemons suddenly restart, w/ the message "ASM Starting" in '/var/log/asm', while ASM is already running and without ASM stopping first.

Conditions:
Unknown

Impact:
ASM daemons restart

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
We have prevented the ASM start script from being executed if it is already running.
Thus, preventing the possibility of a spurious ASM Start while it's already running.


603293-3 : Incorrect handling of L4 Dynamic ACL when it is processed together with L7 ACLs

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
L4 Dynamic ACL is not applied to incoming traffic when assigned in combination with L7 ACL.

Conditions:
APM supports a combination of L7 ACL and L4 ACL to be assigned to one session. When L7 ACLs are assigned with higher priority than L4 ACLs, the processing of L4 ACLs is automatically deferred until L7 information is available. The issue here is that when none of L7 ACLs with higher priority match with the traffic, L4 ACL is incorrectly marked to be applied only to HTTP traffic. Therefore if the incoming traffic is not HTTP, for example, HTTPS, then this particular dynamic L4 ACL is bypassed.

Impact:
L4 Dynamic ACL is not applied correctly.

Workaround:
Reorder L4 ACLs with higher priority than L7 ACLs, if possible, or to prevent the issue from occurring, avoid assigning L7 ACLs if not needed.

Fix:
When L7 ACL is assigned in combination to L4 Dynamic ACL, L4 Dynamic ACL is correctly applied to all kinds of traffic, not only HTTP traffic.


603236-2 : 1024 and 4096 size key creation issue with SafeNet 6.2 with 6.10.9 firmware

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Creating 1024 and 4096 size keys fail when the SafeNet client version installed on BIG-IP is 6.2 and SafeNet appliance firmware is 6.10.9.

Conditions:
-- SafeNet appliance: 6.2.
-- SafeNet client: 6.2.
-- SafeNet firmware: 6.10.9.

Impact:
Cannot create 1024 or 4096 size RSA keys.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Removed the config line, RSAKeyGenMechRemap = 1, that was conflicting with 6.10.9 firmware.


603149-1 : Large ike-phase2-lifetime-kilobytes values in racoon ipsec-policy

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Setting max data limit transmitted (in kilobytes) to a very large limit results in a smaller limit, causing SAs to expire too quickly. Values for ike-phase2-lifetime-kilobytes inside ipsec-policy can reach 2^32-1 kilobytes, but will be processed incorrectly, as if the value were smaller.

Conditions:
When lifetime-kilobytes is large enough, it can act as though it were smaller.

Impact:
Negotiated SAs expire too quickly when size lifetime is calculated too small.

Workaround:
Before the fix, decrease lifetime-kilobytes until properly stable.

Fix:
The fix should make every value no more than 4294967295 kilobytes work correctly, without becoming some smaller value. (Note this value is 2^32-1.) If the size of ike-phase2-lifetime-kilobytes becomes 64-bit in the future, this will also work, causing a 64-bit value for kilobytes to occur in isakmp negotiation.


603082-2 : Ephemeral pool members are getting deleted/created over and over again.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When fqdn nodes are configured, you may see ephemeral pool members getting created and deleted continuously. In severe cases, this can cause mcpd to run out of memory and crash.

Conditions:
It is not known exactly what triggers this condition, but it has been observed after running bigstart restart in a configuration containing many fqdn nodes.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while mcpd restarts.


603071-1 : XHTML validation fails on obfuscated JavaScript

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
The obfuscated JavaScript injected by ASM for CSRF protection and other features causes web pages to fail w3c validation.

Conditions:
CSRF or WebScrapping enabled in ASM policy

Impact:
Threre is no end user impact, but if checking the page with w3c online validator it returns errors

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
Wrapped the script in CDATA - the validator will not complain on errors.


603032-2 : clientssl profiles with sni-default enabled may leak X509 objects

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
SSL memory consumption grows when virtuals with sni-default-enabled clientssl profiles are modified.

Conditions:
clientssl profile with sni-default enabled combined with configuration manipulations of virtuals with such profiles.

Impact:
The amount of leakage will depending on the number of virtuals with sni-default-enabled clientssl profiles and frequency of configuration manipulations. For large configurations, the leakage can be very noticeable over time.

Workaround:
No workaround short of not using sni-default.

Fix:
SSL now handles sni-default-enabled clientssl profiles without leaking the X509 objects.


602366-2 : Safenet 6.2 HA performance

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
With Safenet 6.2 HA setup, you only sees the performance of one HSM.

Conditions:
Safenet 6.2 client is installed and Safenet HA is used.

Impact:
Only one HSM is used for the HA setup.

Workaround:
Add primary hsm to the newly created ha group
/shared/safenet/lunasa/bin/lunacm -c hagroup createGroup -serialNumber 464683014 -label ha_test -password <pw>

or
echo "copy" | /shared/safenet/lunasa/bin/lunacm -c hagroup createGroup -serialNumber 464683014 -label ha_test -password <pw>

Add following hsm to the ha group
/shared/safenet/lunasa/bin/lunacm -c hagroup addMember -serialNumber 470379014 -group ha_test -password <pw>

Enable HAonly
/shared/safenet/lunasa/bin/lunacm -c hagroup HAOnly -enable

Delete ha group
/shared/safenet/lunasa/bin/lunacm -c hagroup deleteGroup -label ha_test

Fix:
Installation script is updated for Safenet 6.2 HA.


602358-2 : BIG-IP ServerSSL connection may reset during rengotiation with some SSL/TLS servers due to ClientHello version

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
During SSL/TLS renegotiation, the TLS standard requires that the new ClientHello version matches the first session.

Usually, SSL/TLS servers require the new ClientHello version to match the previous negotiated (ServerHello) version. The BIG-IP ServerSSL default behavior is to match this requirement.

The problem occurs if the SSL/TLS server requires the ClientHello (both in the Record layer and Handshake Protocol) in the new ClientHello to be exactly the same as the SSL/TLS version of the first ClientHello; that is:
************************************************************
1st ClientHello record layer version == 2nd ClientHello record layer version;
1st ClientHello Handshake Protocol version == 2nd ClientHello Handshake Protocol version.
************************************************************
As a result, the SSL/TLS server will reject the renegotiation handshake, causing the connection to terminate.

Conditions:
This occurs when using virtual servers configured with one or more ServerSSL profiles, and an SSL/TLS renegotiation occurs, and the server requires the new ClientHello version to match the first ClientHello instead of the previous ServerHello version.

Impact:
SSL/TLS renegotiation between BIG-IP ServerSSL profile and server may fail, resulting in an unexpected connection close or reset.

Workaround:
Manually setting the ciphers in the ServerSSL to TLS1.0 can solve the issue.

Fix:
A new db variable called ssl.RenegotiateWithInitialClientHello has been added to control the SSL/TLS version in the 2nd ClientHello:

1. The default is disable, which means that the 2nd ClientHello SSL/TLS version will be set to the negotiated version in the 1st round ServerHello.

2. If it is set to enable, both ClientHello versions will be exactly the same.

601905-4 : POST requests may not be forwarded to backend server when EAM plugin is enabled on the virtual server

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
POST requests appear to hang when they are sent through a virtual server with EAM plugin enabled.

Conditions:
Most likely, the POST request contains large post data.

Impact:
The POST request will fail.

Workaround:
The following iRule will workaround the issue:

 when HTTP_REQUEST {

  if {[HTTP::method] eq "POST"}{
    # Trigger collection for up to $max_collect of data
    set max_collect 1000000
    if {[HTTP::header "Content-Length"] ne "" && [HTTP::header "Content-Length"] <= $max_collect}{
      set content_length [HTTP::header "Content-Length"]
    } else {
        set content_length $max_collect
    }
    # Check if $content_length is not set to 0
    if { $content_length > 0} {
      HTTP::collect $content_length
    }
  }


601527-3 : mcpd memory leak and core

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Mcpd can leak memory during config update or config sync.

Conditions:
All of the conditions that trigger this are not known but it seems to occur during full configuration sync and is most severe on the config sync peers. It was triggered making a single change on the primary by configuring a monitor rule, e.g., tmsh create ltm pool p members { 1.2.3.4:80 } monitor http

Impact:
Loss of memory over time, which may result in out-of-memory and mcpd core.

Fix:
Fixed a memory lean in mcpd


601502-1 : Excessive OCSP traffic

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
With OCSP configured on a virtual server, you see excessive OCSP requests going to the OCSP server.

Conditions:
Virtual server configured with an OCSP profile

Impact:
OCSP responses are not cached properly and excessive requests are sent to the server.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
OCSP responses are now cached properly, so excessive requests are no longer sent to the server.


601496-1 : iRules and OCSP Stapling

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Using certain iRules on virtual servers with OCSP Stapling enabled on the Client SSL profile might cause OCSP requests to be reissued, resulting in a memory leak.

You may notice warning messages similar to the following in /var/log/ltm:
warning tmm[11300]: 011e0003:4: Aggressive mode sweeper: /Common/default-eviction-policy (0) (global memory) 115 Connections killed.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
-- Virtual server with OCSP Stabling enabled.
-- iRule attached to the virtual server that uses SSL::renegotiate.

Impact:
TMM memory used increases gradually, eventually the aggressive mode sweeper is activated.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Using certain iRules on virtual servers with OCSP Stapling enabled on the Client SSL profile no longer causes OCSP requests to be reissued, so there is no associated memory leak.


601255-3 : RTSP response to SETUP request has incorrect client_port attribute

Symptoms:
- Clientside data is sent to UDP port 0
- RTSP response to SETUP request contains incorrect 'client_port' attribute (0)

Conditions:
- Virtual with RTSP profile.
- 200/OK is received from server in response to the initial SETUP request
- SETUP request was the initial message received on a new connection

Impact:
Unicast media may forwarded to incorrect UDP port (0).

Fix:
Initialize 'client_port' attribute to value received from server when re-writing response to client.


601180-1 : Link Controller base license does not allow DNS namespace iRule commands.

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The Link Controller base license was improperly preventing DNS namespace iRule commands.

Conditions:
A Link Controller license without an add-on that allowed Layer 7 iRule commands.

Impact:
An administrator would not be able add DNS namespace commands to an iRule or upgrade from a pre-11.5 configuration where the commands were working to 11.5.4 through 12.1.1.

Workaround:
To address the inability to upgrade, removal of DNS namespace commands from the configuration prior to upgrade will allow the upgrade to proceed. The commands will then be able to be re-added after a fixed version is installed.

Fix:
DNS namespace iRule commands are now properly accepted with a Link Controller base license.


601178-3 : HTTP cookie persistence 'preferred' encryption

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When encryption is 'preferred' in the http cookie persistence profile, when the client presents a plain-text route domain formatted cookie the BIG-IP will ignore the cookie and re-load balance the connection.

Conditions:
This occurs when route-domain-compatible cookies are sent in plaintext.

Impact:
Cookie does not get accepted by the persistence profile and flow does not persist.


600827-5 : Stuck nitrox crypto queue can erroneously be reported

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In some cases, a stuck crypto queue can be erroneously detected on Nitrox systems (Nitrox PX and Nitrox 3). When the tmm/crypto stats are examined, they show no queued requests. The message "Hardware Error(Co-Processor): n3-crypto0 request queue stuck" will appear in the ltm log file.

Conditions:
Nitrox based system performing SSL under heavy load.

Impact:
Device errors reported in logs and crypto HA action is taken, possibly resulting in failing over.

Fix:
The Nitrox crypto driver uses a proper timeout value for crypto requests.


600662-4 : NAT64 vulnerability CVE-2016-5745

Vulnerability Solution Article: K64743453


600593-4 : Use of HTTP Explicit Proxy and OneConnect can lead to an issue with CONNECT HTTP requests

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
After a CONNECT request is sent to the BIG-IP system and processed, if the client disconnects before a response is received from the server, the FIN is not propagated to the server-side and that connection remains open. If a client sends another CONNECT request to the same destination, the previous server-side flow is reused for the new request. Inspection of packet captures reveals that the BIG-IP system does not process the new CONNECT request as such, but instead forwards it to the server using the old server-side flow. This behaviour is incorrect. The CONNECT method should disable connection reuse, and the BIG-IP should close the server-side flow if the client disconnects first.

Conditions:
Use of HTTP Explicit Proxy and OneConnect together. CONNECT requests must arrive to the virtual server. The client must disconnect before the server responds.

Impact:
Some connections may fail. Depending on what data is sent to the server over an unintended connection, unpredictable results may be experienced.

Workaround:
You can apply the following iRule to the HTTP Explicit Proxy virtual server to mitigate the issue:

when HTTP_PROXY_REQUEST {
   if { [HTTP::method] equals "CONNECT" } {
      ONECONNECT::reuse disable
   }
   else {
      ONECONNECT::reuse enable
   }
}


600558-3 : Errors logged after deleting user in GUI

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
After deleting a user in the BIG-IP GUI (under Access Policy :: Local User DB : Manage Users), the following symptoms may be observed:

1. After approximately 10 minutes, an error similar to the following appears in the LTM log (/var/log/ltm):

mcpd[25939]: 01070418:5: connection 0x5dde19c8 (user admin) was closed with active requests

This message may also appear in /var/log/webui.log and /var/log/tomcat/catalina.out.

2. After clicking Refresh, the GUI may not show the correct web page.

Conditions:
This has been reported most frequently when deleting local users (Access Policy :: Local User DB : Manage Users), but has been encountered in other ways. The issue might require deleting a user and then remaining on the Manage Users page until an internal timeout of approximately 10 minutes passes.

Impact:
Error messages logged.
GUI may not show the correct web page.

Workaround:
Use the CLI (tmsh) to delete local users.

Fix:
Errors are no longer logged after deleting user in GUI.


600535 : TMM may core while exiting if MCPD connection was previously aborted

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM cores while exiting after MCPD has spontaneously restarted.

Conditions:
MCPD aborts connection to TMM, typically due to fatal internal configuration errors causing MCPD to exit. This is generally a rarely occurring issue.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
This issue has no workaround at this time.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores when exiting.


600198-4 : OpenSSL vulnerability CVE-2016-2178

Vulnerability Solution Article: K53084033


600174-1 : Wildcard "*" redirection domain cannot be deleted if list is scrollable

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Wildcard "*" redirection domain cannot be deleted if list is scrollable

Conditions:
Add redirection domains until list becomes scrollable (at least 4 or 5)

Impact:
first redirection domain in the list cannot be deleted

Workaround:
first delete redirection domains (not first one) to make list not scrollable, then re-add again

Fix:
Any redirection domain can be removed from the list


600116-1 : DNS resolution request may take a long time in some cases

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
DNS resolution may appear slow in some cases

Conditions:
All of following conditions should be met

1) DNS Relay proxy is installed on user's machine
2) User's machine has multiple network adapters and some of them are in disconnected state.

Impact:
DNS resolution will be slow

Workaround:
Disable network adapters that are not connected.

Fix:
Now DNS Relay proxy server doesn't proxy DNS servers on non-connected interfaces. This fixes slow resolution DNS issue.


599536-2 : IPsec peer with wildcard selector brings up wrong phase2 SAs

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If a remote IPsec peer sends a wildcard (0.0.0.0/0 <-> 0.0.0.0/0) traffic-selector in phase2, the BIG-IP system will find a match against a non-wildcard selector and use that policy to complete phase2 negotiation.

You may encounter this problem if you have one or more remote peers attempting to negotiate phase2 with wildcard traffic-selectors. An IPsec tunnel may start but fail to pass data and at the same time another IPsec tunnel may stop working.

Conditions:
The remote IPsec peer sends a wildcard (0.0.0.0/0 <-> 0.0.0.0/0) traffic-selector in phase2. Phase1 must be established first.

Impact:
A tunnel will start, but data communication (over ESP or AH) will fail.
Other tunnels may be subject to an accidental DOS when a peer establishes phase1 but uses wildcard traffic-selectors in phase2. A traffic-selector matched by wildcard might be bound to a tunnel already in use, which is then taken offline by the new Security Associations.

Fix:
Ensure that phase2 negotiation using a wildcard (0.0.0.0/0 <-> 0.0.0.0/0) traffic-selector does not establish a Security Association with an ipsec-policy associated with a non-wildcard traffic-selector.

Behavior Change:
Previously, a wildcard selector was able to match a non-wildcard selector, and thus engage the wrong (IPsec) tunnel to attempt negotiation, usually failing.

In effect, a wildcard selector was able to bind to the wrong peer; but after this change only the right peer should bind. This cleans up behavior of selector as identity key, and prevents subjecting random wrong peers from noise.


599521-2 : Persistence entries not added if message is routed via an iRule

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
MRF SIP route table implementation does not add a persistence entry if the message was routed via an iRule.

Conditions:
If the message is routed via an iRule, a SIP persistence entry will not be created.

Impact:
Since MRF SIP persistence may be bidirectional, not having the persistence entry will keep message flowing in the opposite direction from being automatically routed via persistence.

Workaround:
An iRule could be used to route messages directed towards the original client.

Fix:
MRF SIP will add a persistence entry for message routed via an iRule.

598981-2 : APM ACL does not get enforced all the time under certain conditions

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
APM ACL does not get enforced all the time under certain conditions

Conditions:
The following conditions individually increase the chances for this problem to occur:
1. The device is very busy. (Construction of ACL windows is prolonged.)
2. Concentration of connections into one TMM. (e.g., VPN feature.)
3. Small number of TMMs (e.g., BIG-IP low-end platform, Virtual Edition (VE) configurations.)
4. Application starts with a high number of concurrent connections.

Impact:
ACL is not applied for subsequent connections for that TMM. This issue does not consistently reproduce.

Workaround:
Mitigation:
Administrator can kill the affected session, which forces the user to re-login, and ultimately restarts the ACL construction process.

Fix:
Switching context when applying ACL is properly processed, and no longer cause ACL to be not enforced.


598909-1 : SQL produces errors. AVR does not display any statistics.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
SQL produces errors. AVR does not display any statistics. AFM, APM, ASM, AVR, FPS and SWG might be non-functional.

Conditions:
In version 11.6.0 and 11.6.1, there is an issue that occurs intermittently during software build operations.

Impact:
SQL produces errors. AVR does not display any statistics.

Workaround:
If occurs:
1. Edit file /var/avr/avr_srv_code.sql.
2. Make sure that the following text starts in a new line:
   '# Old tables (for DB upgrade only)'
3. touch /var/avr/init_avrdb.
4. Restart the Monpd daemon: bigstart restart monpd.

Fix:
SQL no longer produces errors in response to an intermittent issue that occurred during software build operations.


598874-3 : GTM Resolver sends FIN after SYN retransmission timeout

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If a DNS server is not responding to TCP SYN, GTM Resolver sends a FIN after a retransmission timeout (RTO) of the SYN.

Conditions:
GTM Resolver tries to open a TCP connection to a server that does not respond.

Impact:
Firewalls may log the FIN as a possible attack.

Fix:
Do not send anything in response to a SYN retransmission timeout.


598854-1 : sipdb tool incorrectly displays persistence records without a pool name

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
MRF SIP persistence records added for a forwarding route (a peer object without a pool), will not be displayed properly by sipdb

Conditions:
If a persistence record is added for a route that does not contain a pool, this persistence entry will not be displayed correctly.

Impact:
The persistence entry is correctly stored in the persistence table and will operate correctly. Due to the bug in the sipdb tool, this entry will not be viewable for debugging purposes.

Fix:
The fix corrects the sipdb tool so that entries which do not have a pool name will display correctly.


598498-4 : Cannot remove Self IP when an unrelated static ARP entry exists.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Cannot remove a self-IP when an unrelated static ARP entry exists. The system produces an error similar to the following: err mcpd[6743]: 01071907:3: Cannot delete IP <addr> because it would leave a static neighbor (ARP/NDP) entry unreachable.

Conditions:
Static arp entry exists, and there are no Self IP addresses on the same subnet as the static ARP entry. When in this condition, none of the Self IP addresses can be deleted.

Impact:
Must delete static ARP entries in order to delete Self IP addresses.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
In this release, you can delete Self IP addresses if unrelated static ARP entries exist.


598211-2 : Citrix Android Receiver 3.9 does not work through APM in StoreFront integration mode.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
During the logon to Citrix StoreFront through an APM virtual server, after the login page, the BIG-IP system sends the client the following error: Error 404 file or directory not found.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
- Citrix Android receiver 3.9.
- APM is in integration mode with Citrix StoreFront.
- Storefront unified experience mode is enabled.

Impact:
Cannot access Citrix StoreFront unified UI through Android Receiver 3.9.

Workaround:
For StoreFront integration mode, there is an iRule that is created by the iApp that redirects the root page to the store's URI. The workaround is to add an additional redirect for the receiver_uri ending with receiver.html. The iRule below contains this workaround.
It is also recommended to delete and recreate the existing store account.

when HTTP_REQUEST {
    if { [regexp -nocase {/citrix/(.+)/receiver\.html} [HTTP::path] dummy store_name] } {
        log -noname accesscontrol.local1.debug "01490000:7: setting http path to /Citrix/$store_name/"
        HTTP::path "/Citrix/$store_name/"
    }
}

Fix:
Citrix Android Receiver 3.9 now works through APM in StoreFront integration mode.


598039-3 : MCP memory may leak when performing a wildcard query

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
MCP's umem_alloc_80 cache (visible using tmctl -a) increases in size after certain wildcard queries. Accordingly, the MCP process shows increased memory usage.

Conditions:
Folders must be in use, and the user must execute a wildcard query for objects that are in the upper levels of the folder hierarchy (i.e. not at the very bottom of the folder tree).

Impact:
MCP loses available memory with each query. MCP could eventually run out of memory and core, resulting in an outage or failover (depending on whether or not the customer is running in a device cluster).

Workaround:
Do not perform wildcard queries.

Fix:
Stopped MCP leaking when wildcard queries are performed.


597966 : ARP/neighbor cache nexthop object can be freed while still referenced by another structure

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Use after free or double-free of the nexthop object may cause memory corruption or TMM core.

Conditions:
This can happen if the server-side connection establishment takes some time to complete, creating a large enough time window where the nexthop object might be freed.

Impact:
The BIG-IP dataplane might crash. This is a very timing/memory-usage-dependent issue.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Management of nexthop object reference counting is more consistent.


597835-1 : Branch parameter in inserted VIA header not consistent as per spec

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
MRF SIP in LoadBalancing Operation Mode inserts a VIA header to SIP request messages. This VIA header is removed from the returned response message. The VIA header contains encrypted routing information to route the response message. The SIP spec states that all messages in the same transaction should contain the same branch header. The code used to encrypt the branch field returns a different value each time.

Conditions:
Enabling SIP Via header insertion on the BIGIP on SIP MRF profile and need to cancel an INVITE

Impact:
Some servers have code to verify the brach fields in the VIA header do not change within a transaction. These servers complain when they see the fields change.

Fix:
The code has been improved to ensure the branch field in the via header does not change.


597729-1 : Errors logged after deleting user in GUI

Symptoms:
After deleting a user in the BIG-IP GUI (under Access Policy :: Local User DB : Manage Users), the following symptoms may potentially be observed:

1. After approximately 10 minutes, an error similar to the following may appear in the LTM log (/var/log/ltm):

mcpd[25939]: 01070418:5: connection 0x5dde19c8 (user admin) was closed with active requests

Such message may also appear in /var/log/webui.log and /var/log/tomcat/catalina.out.

2. After clicking Refresh, the GUI may not show the correct web page.

Conditions:
It is possible that this error could be encountered when deleting local users (Access Policy :: Local User DB : Manage Users), and may theoretically be encountered in other ways. The issue might require deleting a user and then remaining on the Manage Users page until an internal timeout of approximately 10 minutes passes.

Impact:
Error messages logged.
GUI may not show the correct web page.

Workaround:
Use the CLI (tmsh) to delete local users.

597089-5 : Connections are terminated after 5 seconds when using ePVA full acceleration

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When using a fast L4 profile with ePVA full acceleration configured, the 5-second TCP 3WHS handshake timeout is not being updated to the TCP idle timeout after the handshake is completed. The symptom is an unusually high number of connections getting reset in a short period of time.

Conditions:
It is not known all of the conditions that trigger this, but it is seen when using the fast L4 profile with pva-acceleration set to full.

Impact:
High number of connections get reset, longer than expected idling TCP connections, and potential performance issues.

Workaround:
Disabling the PVA resolves the issue.

596814-3 : HA Failover fails in certain valid AWS configurations

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Some of the floating object's IPs might not be reattached to the instance acting as the new active device.

Conditions:
AWS deployments where there are multiple coincidences for the provided IP address (corresponding to other Amazon VPCs in the same Availability Zone containing unrelated instances but having the same IP address as the BIG-IP's floating IP address.

Impact:
Potential traffic disruption. Some of the floating object's IPs might not be reattached to the instance acting as the new active device.

Workaround:
Do not have AWS deployments with multiple VPCs sharing the same IP address as the BIG-IP's floating IP address.

Fix:
Failover now narrows network description by filtering with VPC id.


596619 : Some 10.2.x client SSL configurations fail to upgrade to 11.6.1.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Some 10.2.x client SSL configurations fail to upgrade to 11.6.1. The upgrade fails with an error similar to the following:

emerg load_config_files: "/usr/libexec/bigpipe load" - failed. -- BIGpipe parsing error (/config/bigpipe/BIG-IP.conf Line 67): 012e0020:3: The requested item (myclientssl {) is invalid (<profile arg> ` show ` list ` edit ` delete ` stats reset) for 'profile'.

Conditions:
Running 10.2.x with a Client SSL profile that has a custom Certificate and Key, and attempting to upgrade to version 11.6.1 or higher.

Impact:
The system fails to upgrade and presents a bigpipe parsing error.

Workaround:
If you have already upgraded and are encountering this issue, do the following:
1. Make a backup copy of /config/bigpipe/BIG-IP.conf.
2. Edit /config/bigpipe/BIG-IP.conf and remove any reference to inherit-certificatechain in the affected ssl profiles.
3. Run /usr/libexec/bigpipe daol.
4. Run tmsh save sys config.
5. Run tmsh load sys config.

This should install the configuration after upgrade failure.

Fix:
A 10.2.x configuration containing a Client SSL profile with a custom Certificate and Key now successfully upgrades to 11.6.1.


596603-11 : AWS: BIG-IP VE doesn't work with c4.8xlarge instance type.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When deploying BIG-IP VE in AWS with c4.8xlarge instance type, the system never boots and remains in "Stopped" state after briefly trying to start-up.

Conditions:

596116-2 : LDAP Query does not resolve group membership, when required attribute(s) specified

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Corresponding session variable session.ldap.last.memberOf contains only the groups user has explicit membership.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
-- When APM LDAP Query is configured with option "Fetch groups to which the user or group belong" is set to "All".
-- The Required Attribute includes the "memberOf" LDAP attribute.

Impact:
Only groups the user is a direct member of will be populated to the APM 'session.ldap.last.memberOf' variable.

Workaround:
Add the following attribute to the "Required Attributes" list:

"objectClass"

If APM is communicating via LDAP with Microsoft Active Directory, consider adding this attribute to the list:

"primaryGroupID"

Note: Adding the "primaryGroupID" attribute will cause APM to fetch all groups Microsoft Active Directory, including the primary group.

Fix:
LDAP Query now retrieves groups from the backend server in accordance with option "fetch groups to which the user or group belong". it doesn't matter if any required attribute set or not set.


595874-4 : Upgrading 11.5.x/11.6.x hourly billing instances to 12.1.0 fails due to license SCD.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) instances that use the Amazon Web Services (AWS) hourly billing license model may fail when upgrading to version 12.1.0.

As a result of this issue, you may encounter the following symptom:

After upgrading to version 12.1.0, the BIG-IP VE instance license is invalid.

Conditions:
This issue occurs when all of the following conditions are met:

-- You have BIG-IP VE instances that use the hourly billing licensing model.
-- Your BIG-IP VE instances are running 11.5.x or 11.6.x software versions.
-- Your BIG-IP VE instances are running within the AWS EC2 environment.
-- You upgrade the BIG-IP VE instance using the liveinstall method.

Impact:
BIG-IP VE instance licenses are not valid after upgrading to software version 12.1.0.

Workaround:
To work around this issue, you can use the liveinstall method on the hotfix image directly (instead of installing the base software image and then the hotfix image). To do so, perform the following procedure:

Impact of workaround: Performing the following procedure requires rebooting the system and should be performed only during a maintenance window.

Download the BIGIP-12.1.0.0.0.1434.iso and Hotfix-BIGIP-12.1.0.1.1.1447-HF1-ENG.iso files to your workstation. For more information about downloading software, refer to SOL167: Downloading software and firmware from F5.
Copy the downloaded files from your workstation to the /shared/images directory on the VE instance.
To perform the installation by using the liveinstall method, and reboot the BIG-IP VE instance to the volume running the new software, use the following command syntax:

tmsh install sys software hotfix Hotfix-BIGIP-12.1.0.1.1.1447-HF1-ENG.iso volume <volume-number> reboot

For example, to install the hotfix to volume HD1.3 and reboot to the volume running the newly installed software, type the following command:

tmsh install sys software hotfix Hotfix-BIGIP-12.1.0.1.1.1447-HF1-ENG.iso volume HD1.3 reboot
 
Verify the installation progress by typing the following command:
tmsh show sys software

Output appears similar to the following example:

Sys::Software Status
Volume Product Version Build Active Status
----------------------------------------------------------------
HD1.1 BIG-IP 12.0.0 0.0.606 yes complete
HD1.2 BIG-IP 12.1.0 0.0.1434 no complete
HD1.3 BIG-IP 12.1.0 0.0.1434 no installing 6.000 pct

Fix:
BIG-IP VE instances that use the AWS hourly billing license model now complete successfully when upgrading to version 12.1.0.


595773-3 : Cancellation requests for chunked stats queries do not propagate to secondary blades

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Canceling a request for a chunked stats query (e.g. hitting ctrl-c during "tmsh show sys connection") does not stop data flowing from secondary blades.

Conditions:
A chassis-based system with multiple blades. Users must execute a chunked stats query (e.g. "tmsh show sys connection") and then cancel it before it finishes (e.g. with ctrl-c in tmsh).

Impact:
Unnecessary data will be sent from TMM to secondary mcpd instances, as well as from secondary mcpd instances to the primary mcpd instance. This could cause mcpd to restart unexpectedly.

Fix:
Cancellations for chunked stats queries are now propagated to secondary blades.


595275-2 : Virtual IP address change might cause VIP state to go from GREEN to RED to GREEN

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:

592870-3 : Fast successive MTU changes to IPsec tunnel interface crashes TMM

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Changing IPsec tunnel interface MTU attribute repeatedly in quick succession, TMM cores. This can occur whether or not traffic has flowed through the tunnel.

Conditions:
This occurs when quickly changing the IPsec tunnel interface MTU.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Change IPsec tunnel interface attributes at a rate of speed that allows each configuration modification to complete.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores if users quickly and repeatedly change interface attributes (for example, the MTU interface attribute).


592868-4 : Rewrite may crash processing HTML tag with HTML entity in attribute value

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
If HTML page contains HTML entities in attribute values, rewrite may crash processing this page.

Conditions:
HTML tag like this:
<script src="&#10;" type="text/javascript"></script>

Impact:
Web application may not work correctly.

Workaround:
In most cases HTML entities can be replaced by appropriate characters by iRule.

Fix:
Now rewrite correctly handles HTML entities in attribute values.


592854-4 : Protocol version set incorrectly on serverssl renegotiation

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If the BIG-IP serverssl profile sends a new ClientHello request to renegotiate SSL, the protocol version will be set to 0. This will cause renegotiation to fail.

Conditions:
ServerSSL profile configured on a virtual server, and BIG-IP initiates a renegotiation.

Impact:
Protocol field is invalid (0), and the server will reset the connection.

Fix:
Fixed a reset issue with SSL renegotiation in the serverssl profile.


592784-4 : Compression stalls, does not recover, and compression facilities cease.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Compression stalls, does not recover, and compression facilities may cease.

Conditions:
A device error of any kind, or requests that result in the device reporting an error (for example, attempting to decompress an invalid compression stream).

Impact:
In general, compression stops altogether. Under some circumstances, compression requests may end up routed to zlib (software compression), but generally the SSL hardware accelerator card does not correctly report that it is unavailable when it stalls.

Workaround:
Select the softwareonly compression provider by running the following tmsh command: tmsh modify sys db compression.strategy value softwareonly.

Fix:
The compression device driver now attempts to recover after a failure. If it still cannot recover, new compression requests will be assigned to zlib (software) for compression.


592591-1 : Deleting access profile prompts for apply access policy for other untouched access profiles

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
After deleting an access profile, the 'Apply Access Policy' link shows up and the status flags for some other untouched access profiles turn yellow. Also, there are APM log messages indicating that the configurations for those untouched access profile have been changed.

Conditions:
If an access profile containing macros is copied on the admin UI and is deleted subsequently.

Impact:
There is no change to the access profiles that are affected by the deletion. Admin can go ahead to click "Apply Access Policy" link to make the link disappear.


592497-2 : Idle timeout ineffective for FIN_WAIT_2 when server-side expired and HTTP in fallback state.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:

592070-1 : DHCP server connFlow when created based on the DHCP client connFlow does not have the traffic group ID copied

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
Variables in the flow context when stored in the sessionDB cannot be shared since the traffic groups of the server and client flows are different.

Conditions:
DHCP virtual created in a non-local traffic group.

Impact:
Variable sharing in the TCL context will not work.

Workaround:
Modify SysDb variable "Tmm.SessionDB.match_ha_unit" to disable the use of traffic-group ID while accessing the sessionDB.

Fix:
Copy the traffic group from client to server connFlows such that both connFlows have the same traffic group.

591857 : 10-core vCMP guest with ASM may not pass traffic

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The TMM plugin manager does not expect/support an ASM guest configuration of 10 cores, thus its calculations as to the number of devices required and numbering does not match the existing number of threads/devices.

Conditions:
11.6.0 HF6
ASM provisioned on a vCMP guest
10 CPU cores allocated to an ASM guest

Impact:
System may not start or may exhibit intermittent failures.

Workaround:
Change the number of cores on the ASM guest to use either 8 CPU cores or 12 CPU cores.

Fix:
This issue was partially fixed in 11.6.0 HF6, but the tmplugin RPM was incorrect. This fix includes the proper RPM.

591733-2 : Save on Auto-Sync is missing from the configuration utility.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The option to configure save-on-auto-sync is missing in the Device Management GUI.

Conditions:
Devices configured in a DSC configuration.
Automatic with Full or Incremental Sync is enabled.
You attempt to configure the save-on-auto-sync option from the GUI.

Impact:
You will need to have TMSH access to the BIG-IP system to perform this task.

Workaround:
You will need to have TMSH access to the BIG-IP system to perform this task.

Fix:
This release adds per-device-group save_on_auto_sync flag to GUI: flag now shows in GUI and correctly saves.
GUI: The "Sync Type" option in the GUI must be set to "Automatic with Full/Incremental Sync" in order for "Save on Auto-Sync" option to show.

Behavior Change:
Beginning in version 11.5.0, the /cm trust-domain 'save-on-auto-sync' attribute is no longer configured as part of the trust-domain, but is part of the configuration of a device group. With this change, the option to set that attribute becomes available in the GUI on the condition that the "Sync Type" option is set to "Automatic with Full/Incremental Sync".


591659-3 : Server shutdown is propagated to client after X-Cnection: close transformation.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Server shutdown is propagated to client after X-Cnection: close transformation.

Conditions:
In OneConnect configurations, when a server's maximum number of keep-alives is exceeded, the server closes the connection between itself and the BIG-IP system. This Connection: Close is transformed to an X-Cnection: close and sent to the Client along with a TCP FIN.

Impact:
Client side connections are closed by the BIG-IP system too early, causing subsequent requests to be dropped.

Workaround:
Set the OneConnect profile "Maximum Reuse" value to 2 below the value of the pool members max keep-alive setting. This forces OneConnect to close the connection before the pool member.

Fix:
Server shutdown is no longer propagated to client after X-Cnection: close transformation, so client side connections are now kept open by the BIG-IP system as expected, and subsequent requests are no longer dropped.


591476-8 : Stuck crypto queue can erroneously be reported

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In some cases, a stuck crypto queue can be erroneously detected on Nitrox-based systems (Nitrox PX and Nitrox 3). When the tmm/crypto stats are examined, they show no queued requests. The following message appears in the ltm log: Device error: crypto codec cn-crypto-0 queue is stuck.

Conditions:
-- Running on one of the following platforms:
 + BIG-IP 800, 1600, 3600, 3900, 6900, 89xx, 5xxx, 7xxx, 10xxx, 11xxx, and 12xxx
 + VIPRION B41xx-B43xx, B21xx, and B22xx blades.
-- Performing SSL.
-- Under heavy load.

Impact:
Device errors reported in logs and crypto HA action is taken, possibly resulting in failing over.

Workaround:
Modify the crypto queue timeout value to 0 to prevent timeouts using the following command:

tmsh modify sys db crypto.queue.timeout value 0

Fix:
The crypto driver now only examines requests in the hardware DMA ring to detect a stuck queue.

591343-2 : SSL::sessionid output is not consistent with the sessionid field of ServerHello message.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
SSL::sessionid output is not consistent with the sessionid field of ServerHello message. This is mostly cosmetic, but if an iRule depends upon the outcome, the result can be unexpected.

Conditions:
This occurs when using an iRule to inspect the session ID on server-side SSL.

Impact:
The values do not match. SSL::sessionid outputs the wrong sessionid.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The returned session ID in both the SERVERSSL_SERVERHELLO and SERVERSSL_HANDSHAKE events is the one presented by the SSL server.

590904-5 : New HA Pair created using serial cable failover only will remain Active/Active

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
After creating a new sync-failover device group without network failover enabled, both devices remain Active.

Conditions:
Create a new sync-failover device-group without enabling network failover.

Impact:
Both device in the HA pair will be Active, which is unlikely to pass traffic successfully.

Workaround:
After adding the 2nd device to the sync-failover group, restart sod with "bigstart restart sod" on both devices.

Fix:
After creating the sync-failover group with without network failover configured, but a serial failover cable installed, one of the devices becomes Standby and the other remains Active.


590820-2 : Applications that use appendChild() or similar JavaScript functions to build UI might experience slow performance in Microsoft Internet Explorer browser.

589794 : APD might crash if LDAP Query agent failed to retrieve primary group for a user

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
APD will crash and generate a core file.

Conditions:
The problem can happen only when the following is true:
1. LDAP Query is used with AD backend
2. "Fetch groups to which the user or group belong" is defined other value than None (direct/all)
3. There were logins to bigip before, so group cache is built and valid
4. New group created in the domain and assigned as a primary group for the user trying to authenticate

Impact:
Authentication service will be interrupted.

Workaround:
Administrator should reset group cache using either GUI (AAA LDAP Server configuration page) or tmsh (apm aaa ldap object). After cache is reset, it will be built from scratch on next request and the new group will be added to the cache.


589256-3 : DNSSEC NSEC3 records with different type bitmap for same name.

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
For a delegation from a secure zone to an insecure zone, BIG-IP returns different type bitmaps in the NSEC3 record depending on the query type. This causes BIND9's validator to reject the secure delegation to the insecure zone.

Conditions:
For insecure delegations, our DNSSEC implementation does not support the DS record. Those queries are forwarded to the backend, BIND if selected as fallback. Without ZSK/KSK for an insecure child zone, BIND responds SOA which we dynamically sign.

Impact:
DNS lookups may fail if BIND9's validator rejects the delegation.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
If response is a NODATA from either the proxy or a transparent cache, and the query is a DS, set the types bitmap to NS.


589223-3 : TMM crash and core dump when processing SSL protocol alert.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Conditions:
APM as PCoIP proxy for Horizon 7 View Connection Server.

Impact:
Horizon View client cannot be used with APM to access Horizon 7.

Workaround:
You can use the following iRule to update the broker protocol version returned by APM to be 11.0 instead of 9.0.

when HTTP_REQUEST {
   if { [HTTP::header "Origin"] ne "" } {
        HTTP::header remove "Origin"
    }
     if { [ HTTP::method ] == "POST" && [ HTTP::uri ] == "/broker/xml" } {

    set BROKER_RESPONSE 1
    set content_length 0
    if {[HTTP::header "Content-Length"] ne "" && [HTTP::header "Content-Length"] <= 1048576}{
        set content_length [HTTP::header "Content-Length"]
    } else {
        set content_length 1048576
    }
    # Check if $content_length is not set to 0
    if { $content_length > 0} {
      HTTP::collect $content_length
    }
}

when HTTP_RESPONSE_DATA {
    if { ! [ info exists BROKER_REQUEST ] || ! [ info exists BROKER_RESPONSE ] } { return }
    regsub "<broker version=\"9.0\">" [HTTP::payload] "<broker version=\"11.0\">" payload
    HTTP::payload replace 0 [HTTP::payload length] $payload
    HTTP::release
}

Fix:
Horizon View client can now be used with APM to access Horizon 7.


588888-2 : Empty URI rewriting is not done as required by browser.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Empty URI must be rewritten at server side and client side rewriter in the same way: as empty URI (all browsers treat this type of URI in a specific way).

Conditions:
A tag with an empty 'src' or 'href' attribute.

Impact:
Web application malfunction, such as incorrect or unexpected behavior or error messages.

Workaround:
Use an application-specific iRule that modifies the empty URI.
-- For example, for JavaScript methods such as setAttribute(), an iRule should change this:
'F5_Invoke_setAttribute(o, "src", uri)'
to this:
'(uri=="")?o.setAttribute("src", uri):F5_Invoke_setAttribute(o, "src", uri)'.

-- As another example, for JavaScript methods such as write(str), writeln(str), innerHTML=str, outerHTML=str, and similar methods, if str contains <img src="" ... >, the iRule must remove the src attribute.

Fix:
This release fixes the issue of rewriting the empty URI the same way at the server side and client side: as empty URI (all browsers treat this type of URI in a specific way).

Vulnerability Solution Article: K37603172


586878-2 : During upgrade, configuration fails to load due to clientssl profile with empty cert/key configuration.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
During upgrade, configuration fails to load due to invalid clientssl profile cert/key configuration. The validation to verify whether at least one valid key/cert pair exists in clientssl profiles was enforced in software versions through 11.5.0. This validation was not in effect in versions 11.5.1, 11.5.2, and 11.5.3.

The lack of validation resulted in invalid clientssl profiles (those containing empty key/certs or a cert/key of 'default'). When you upgrade such a configuration to 11.5.4 or later, you will receive a validation error, and the configuration will fail to load after upgrade.

Conditions:
The issue occurs when all the below conditions are met.
1. You have a clientssl profile in a configuration from a version without validation (that is, 11.5.1, 11.5.2, or 11.5.3).
2. The clientssl profile in the configuration has an empty cert/key, or a cert/key of 'default'.
3. You upgrade to a version that has the cert/key validation (specifically, 11.5.4, 11.6.0, 11.6.1, and versions 12.1.0 and later).

Impact:
Configuration fails to load. The system posts an error message that might appear similar to one of the following:
-- 01070315:3: profile /Common/my_client_ssl requires a key Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.
-- 01071ac9:3: Unable to load the certificate file () - error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such file.
Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.

Workaround:
To workaround this situation, modify the configuration file before upgrading:
1. Check the config file /config/bigip.conf.
2. Identify the clientssl profile without a cert/key.
    For example, it might look similar to the following:
    ltm profile client-ssl /Common/cssl_no-cert-key2 {
        app-service none
        cert none
        cert-key-chain {
            "" { }
        }
        chain none
        defaults-from /Common/clientssl
        inherit-certkeychain false
        key none
        passphrase none
    }

   Note: The profile might have cert-key-chain name but not the cert/key. In other words, it could also appear similar to the following example:
    ltm profile client-ssl /Common/cssl_no-cert-key2 {
        app-service none
        cert none
        cert-key-chain {
            default { }
        }
        chain none
        defaults-from /Common/clientssl
        inherit-certkeychain false
        key none
        passphrase none
    }
3. Remove the clientssl profile from /config/bigip.conf.
4. Run the command: tmsh load sys conf.
5. Re-create the clientssl profiles you need.


586738-2 : The tmm might crash with a segfault.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The tmm might crash with a segfault.

Conditions:
Using IPsec with hardware encryption.

Impact:

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
IPsec is configured with hardware encryption error now returns an error code when appropriate, and manages the error as expected, so tmm no longer crashes with a segfault.


586718-3 : Session variable substitutions are logged

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
With the log level set to debug, session variable substitutions are logged, including the encrypted password if you are substituting the password variable. You may see the following logs: debug apmd[3531]: 01490000:7: Util.cpp func: "ScanReplaceSessionVar()" line: 608 Msg: data: '%{session.logon.last.password}' start_pos: 0, count: 30 on 'session.logon.last.password' with the encrypted password logged

Conditions:
APM Access Policy log level set to debug, and session variable substitution is performed.

Impact:
Session variable substitution should not be logged, even if it is secure.

Workaround:
Set log level to informational or notice for normal operations. Logging at debug level is not recommended unless absolutely needed for specific troubleshooting as it adversely affects system performance.

Fix:
Session variable substitutions are no longer logged.


586131-3 : SSLv3 vulnerability CVE-2014-3566

Vulnerability Solution Article: K15702


586006-3 : Failed to retrieve CRLDP list from client certificate if DirName type is present

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Client certification revocation check will fail.

Conditions:
Two conditions will trigger this problem:
1. A CRLDP agent is configured in the access policy without server hostname and port, which is needed for DirName type processing. AND
2. At least one DirName type CRLDP is present in the client certification and it is the first in the list.

Impact:
Users may fail access policy evaluation when client certification is used.

Workaround:
Configure an LDAP server for the CRLDP object. It need not return a valid CRL.


585562-1 : VMware View HTML5 client shipped with Horizon 7 does not work through BIG-IP APM in Chrome/Safari

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When using Google Chrome or Safari (WebKit-based) browser to launch VMware View HTML5 client for Horizon 7 from APM webtop, this attempt fails with a blank screen in place of remote desktop session.

Conditions:
-- BIG-IP APM configured as PCoIP proxy for Horizon 7.
-- APM webtop in which the HTML5 client is used to launch a remote desktop.

Impact:
Cannot use HTML5 client. Only native client (Horizon View client) is available.

Workaround:
when HTTP_REQUEST {
    if { [HTTP::header "Origin"] ne "" } {
        HTTP::header remove "Origin"
    }
}

Fix:
VMware View HTML5 client shipped with Horizon 7 now work sthrough BIG-IP APM in Chrome/Safari.


585485-4 : inter-ability with "delete IPSEC-SA" between AZURE, ASA and BIGIP

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Some IKEv1 IPsec vendor implementations (for example Cisco ASA) send a delete SPI message for an IPsec-SA and expect that the sibling IPsec-SA (the SPI in the other direction) will also be deleted by the peer.

BIG-IP sends and expect messages with two SPI's inside.

Conditions:
An IPsec tunnel between a BIG-IP system and some other vendor may experience this. Azure and Cisco ASA are two such vendors.

Impact:
An IPsec tunnel goes down and in some situations may not renegotiate while the BIG-IP believes that the outgoing SPI is still active. The tunnel will stay down until the lifetime of the outbound SA expires.

Workaround:
Delete the outbound SA from the BIG-IP using the tmsh command by specifying the related SA:

(tmos)# delete net ipsec ipsec-sa ?
Properties:
  "{" Optional delimiter
  dst-addr Specifies the destination address of the security associations
  spi Specifies the SPI of the security associations
  src-addr Specifies the source address of the security associations
  traffic-selector Specifies the name of the traffic selector

Fix:
The BIG-IP system will remove both SAs associated with one traffic-selector (tunnel) when the peer sends a delete SPI message.


585424-3 : Mozilla NSS vulnerability CVE-2016-1979

Vulnerability Solution Article: K20145801


585412-2 : SMTPS virtual server with activation-mode allow will RST non-TLS connections with Email bodies with very long lines

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Connections to a virtual server that uses an SMTPS profile may be reset with a reset cause of 'Out of memory.'

Conditions:
This might occur under the following conditions:
-- A virtual server that uses an SMTPS profile with activation-mode set to allow.
-- A client connection which does not use TLS that sends a DATA section with a text line that is longer than approximately 8192 characters.

8192 characters is an approximation for the maximum line length. The actual problem length can be affected by the MSS value and the particular way that the TCP traffic is segmented.

Impact:
The TCP connection is reset with a reset-cause of Out of memory' and the email will not be delivered.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
A virtual server that uses an SMTPS profile with activation-mode set to allow no longer resets connections when the client does not use STARTTLS and the email body contains very long lines.


585097-3 : Traffic Group score formula does not result in unique values.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
In certain configurations, the Traffic Group score for a particular Traffic Group can be identical across devices in a device service cluster, resulting in the Traffic Group becoming Active on more than one device simultaneously.

Conditions:
The score is derived from the management-ip and other factors. If the device management-ips are not on the same /24 subnet, the score is not guaranteed to be unique.

The score can be observed with the tmsh "run cm watch_trafficgroup_device" command, and in some versions of BIG-IP, the "show cm traffic-group" command.

Impact:
When the problem occurs, Traffic Groups will be Active on multiple devices simultaneously. The problem can affect all Traffic Groups.

Workaround:
The only solution is to change the management-ip on one of the colliding devices. The workaround is not practical with DHCP, and in many other situations.

Fix:
The Active device selection logic has been changed to deterministically choose the Active device location, even in cases with identical static scores.


584373-3 : AD/LDAP resource group mapping table controls are not accessible sometimes

583957-4 : The TMM may hang handling pipelined HTTP requests with certain iRule commands.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Rarely, the TMM may hang during a HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect iRule command if it is part of a pipelined HTTP request.

Conditions:
A HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect iRule is used.
The iRule command is in an event triggered on the client-side.
A pipelined HTTP request is being handled.

Impact:
The TMM will be restarted by SOD.

Fix:
The TMM no longer hangs in rare situations when processing a pipelined HTTP request and invoking a HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect iRule command.


583936-3 : Removing ECMP route from BGP does not clear route from NSM

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When configured to install multiple routes into the routing table, ZebOS does not withdraw BGP routes when a neighbor is shut down and it has more than two routes already installed for the same route prefix.

Conditions:
ECMP routing must be enabled and in-use.

Impact:
ECMP routes are not properly removed from the main routing table.

Fix:
Now properly removing ECMP routes from the routing table.


583686-3 : High ASCII meta-characters can be disallowed on UTF-8 policy via XML import

Component: Application Security Manager

Fix:
Alerts are sent encoded and are decoded in the dashboard.


583285-7 : BIG-IP logs INVALID-SPI messages but does not remove the associated SAs.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The BIG-IP system logs INVALID-SPI messages but does not remove the associated Security Associations (SAs) corresponding to the message. This is the second part of a fix provided for this issue. See fixes for bug 569236 for the first part.

Conditions:
This can occur if an IPsec peer deletes a phase2 (IPsec) SA and does not send a 'notify delete' message to the other peer. The INVALID-SPI message is most likely to be seen when the peer deletes an SA before the SA's agreed lifetime.

Impact:
If the BIG-IP is always the Initiator, the Responder will not initiate a new tunnel if the Responder only handles responses to the BIG-IP clients' traffic. The BIG-IP system continues to use the IPsec SA it believes to be still up. When an SA expires prematurely, some IPsec peers will reject an inbound SPI packet with an ISAKMP INVALID-SPI notify message. If the INVALID-SPI message does not cause new SAs to be created, there will be a tunnel outage until the SA lifetime expires on the defunct SA held on the BIG-IP system.

Workaround:
Manually remove the invalid SA on the BIG-IP system.

Fix:
Now, when the BIG-IP system receives INVALID-SPI messages, it deletes the invalid Security Association as well as logging the INVALID-SPI message, so the tunnel can initiate again. This is part two of a two-part fix. Fixes for bug 569236 provide part one of the fix.


583113-3 : NTLM Auth cannot be disabled in HTTP_PROXY_REQUEST event

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
The following iRule did not work as expected when the access profile had an NTLM auth. The client still received a 407 prompt to enter NTLM credentials.

when HTTP_PROXY_REQUEST {
    if { [HTTP::uri] contains "disable" } {
        ACCESS::disable
    }
}

Conditions:
Access profile of an SWG type, with an NTLM auth profile attached.

Impact:
It was impossible to disable NTLM auth from the HTTP_PROXY_REQUEST event.

Workaround:
The following iRule works from HTTP_REQUEST

when HTTP_REQUEST {
    if { [HTTP::uri] contains "disable" } {
        ACCESS::disable
        ECA::disable
    }
}

Fix:
When ACCESS filter is disabled, it still processes certain messages. The logic in one of those message handlers was "if NTLM configured, then wake up the ECA plugin"

Fix changed the logic to "if NTLM configured and ACCESS filter is not disabled, then wake up the ECA plugin."

Impact:
"INVITE tel:" messages are not accepted by BIG-IP.

Workaround:
None

Fix:
An EHF will be released to address this issue. It will also be addressed in a future release.

582752-2 : Macrocall could be topologically not connected with the rest of policy.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
It is possible to create macrocall access policy item that:

1. Belongs to policy items list.
2. Correctly connected to ending.
3. Have no incoming rules (i.e., no items pointing at it).

Conditions:
1. Create access policy with macrocall item in one of the branches.
2. Remove the item which refers to this macrocall item from AP

As a result, macrocall item remains.

Impact:
VPE fails to render this access policy.

Workaround:
Delete macrocall access policy item manually using tmsh commands.

Fix:
Any modification of access policy is not allowed if it makes any access policy item non-referenced.
At upgrade time, non-referenced access policy items are deleted. All subsequent access policy items are deleted as well. Resulting access policies can be rendered correctly by VPE. Note that only active configuration is corrected, saved configuration file (/config/bigip.conf) contains uncorrected version until any new configuration changes are done. Active configuration can be saved by explicit tmsh command ('tmsh save sys config partitions all").


582683-5 : xpath parser doesn't reset a namespace hash value between each and every scan

Impact:
User will not be able to reach internet after disconnecting from network access.

Workaround:
If Wifi is in use then turn off and on again.
If Ethernet is used then unplugging and plugging cable again should solve the problem.


582029-1 : AVR might report incorrect statistics when used together with other modules.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
When AVR is assigned to a virtual server that also has APM or Behavioral DoS, it can lead to AVR getting false readings of the activity and as result report on unexpectedly large numbers.

Conditions:

Vulnerability Solution Article: K22334603


580303-3 : When going from active to offline, tmm might send a GARP for a floating address.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When moving from active to offline, tmm might send one final GARP for a floating address from the device that is moving offline.

Conditions:
Using high availability, and switching a device from active to offline.

Impact:
The GARP from the offline device can arrive on upstream devices after the GARP from the newly active device, which might poison the address cache of the upstream device. The result is that failover takes longer, since the upstream devices must rediscover the active device.

Workaround:
Use MAC masquerading along with the floating address; the system sends a GARP for the MAC masqueraded address, which prevents the issue.

Fix:
tmm no longer sends a final GARP for a floating address immediately before going offline.

579909-2 : Secondary MCPD exits for APM Sandbox warning improperly treated as configuration error

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Secondary blade MCPD exits if APM Sandbox intends to log a warning message when it fails to remove the corresponding sandbox directory /var/sam/www/webtop/sandbox/files_d/<partition_name>_d while the user is removing the partition.

There are multiple cases that can potentially log such kind of Sandbox warning message and cause an mcpd crash and/or tmm crash. APM can log the warning if it encounters a directory which is not empty, or if the directory does not exist. You will see this error signature in /var/log/ltm:

Mar 11 11:36:49 slot2/viprion-3 warning mcpd[6022]: 010717ac:4: Configuration Warning: Cannot remove directory with symlink to sandbox for partition (p1). Error: Directory not empty. If you have access to bash shell, try to run command: rmdir /var/sam/www/webtop/sandbox/files_d/p1_d/

Conditions:
The sandbox directory corresponding to the partition that you are deleting cannot be removed due to any reason such as Not Existing, Not Empty, etc. on the secondary blade. This can occur on the secondary blades if you create a partition before provisioning APM, then delete the partition on the primary blade, and auto-sync is enabled in the device group.

Impact:
Secondary MCPD exits and blade restarts. Tmm can core. Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
Fixed such that Secondary MCP will not exit but only log the warning message as the partition is successfully deleted.


579843-3 : tmrouted may not re-announce routes after a specific succession of failover states

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
tmrouted does not re-announce RHI routes in a specific transition of failover states within a HA pair using dynamic routing and HA pair.

Conditions:
- Active/Standby HA pair set up
 - Both units configured with a dynamic routing protocol and Route Health Injection enabled on one or more Virtual-Addresses.
 - Active unit has the following succession of failover states:
   Active->Offline->Online->Standby->Active

Impact:
Tmrouted may not announce the Virtual addresses when coming back to Active state after the mention succession.

Workaround:
A failover to Standby and back to Active works around the issue.
Restarting tmrouted is also an alternative option.

Fix:
tmrouted now re-announces RHI routes in a specific transition of failover states within a HA pair using dynamic routing and HA pair.

579284 : Potential memory corruption in MCPd

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Memory in mcpd could get corrupted. The effect of this is unpredictable.

Conditions:
Varies. One way (but not the only way) this could be seen is by cancelling a chunked stats query (e.g. hitting ctrl-c during "show sys connection").

Impact:
Varies. Sometimes nothing will happen; other times MCP could start acting unpredictably. In one case it closed its connection to TMM, which caused all TMMs to restart.

Fix:
Identified and fixed areas of potential memory corruption in MCP.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
Under stress traffic tmm can core with the following backtrace:
frame 3:
in *__GI___assert_fail
frame 4 will look like this:
.... avr_alloc_segmempool_with_id .. mempool.c:278

Fix:
Fixed an issue that intermittently caused the TMM to core.


578971-1 : When mcpd is restarted on a blade, cluster members may be temporarily marked as failed

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When mcpd is restarted on a blade, the clusterd process on that blade may become blocked for some time. This may result in cluster member heartbeat timeouts, which are seen in the /var/log/ltm log file with messages that include:

"Slot 1 suffered heartbeat timeout ..."

This causes cluster members to be marked failed. The condition resolves itself within one minute, and the cluster fully recovers on its own.

Conditions:
Mcpd is restarted on a blade.

Impact:
Though all blades recover on their own, the cluster members being marked fail may result in a failover.

Workaround:
There is no workaround for this issue. It is recommended to avoid restarting mcpd on any blade belonging to the active unit of an HA group. The issue resolves itself within about a minute, and all cluster members will be marked as up again.

Fix:
The clusterd daemon has been fixed to no longer become blocked when mcpd is restarted. This prevents the cluster member heartbeat timeouts from occurring, and thus no cluster members will be marked failed.


578844-2 : tmm cores when switching to IPv6 virtual server while connected to IPv4 virtual server with Edge Client.

The ICAP server returns an HTTP response for REQMOD.
An iRule executes HTTP::respond in the HTTP_RESPONSE_RELEASE event.

Impact:
HTTP::respond cannot be used to modify an HTTP response returned by an ICAP server that is modifying an HTTP request.

Fix:
HTTP::respond works as expected even on an HTTP response returned by an ICAP server after request adaption.


578353 : Statistics data aggregation process is not optimized

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
CPU spikes may occur every 5 minutes

Conditions:
Occurs all the time

Impact:
High CPU usage may be observed every 5 minutes

Workaround:
For versions based on 11.5.4 and 11.6.0 take the following steps:

1. Edit the entry 'AggregationMode' under the /etc/avr/monpd/monpd.cfg file and set it to be 'low' instead of 'medium' or 'high'.

2.Restart Monpd afterwards.

For 12.0.0 and on:
tmsh modify sys db avr.stats.aggregation value low

Fix:
The aggregation process of statistics in DB which is done using monpd should be optimized, and skip redundant updates of tables.

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
If routing table on DHCP server is mis-configured, so that DHCP server know how to send packets to BigIP selfIP(used by BigIP DHCP relay), but does not know how to send packets to DHCP clients, DCHP client will not receive DHCP reply for unicast request and will start to broadcast DHCP renewal. After a while, BigIP will stop to relay DHCPOFFER and DHCPACK back to DHCP clients all together.

Conditions:
DHCP server unicast reply back to client is not received by client, causing DHCP client to send broadcast DHCP packets(with client's IP as source IP).

Impact:
BigIP will stop to relay DHCPOFFER and DHCPACK back
to DHCP clients

Workaround:
Fix the DHCP server routing table, so that DHCP server can deliver DHCP reply packet back to client successfully.

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Having a standard Active/Standby setup, with a single Sync-Failover DG, Auto-Sync, with ASM enabled.
When importing an ASM policy (named "ddddd") into the inactive policies list, the following results in GUI at -
"Security ›› Application Security : Security Policies : Inactive Policies"

On active device:
Security Policy Name - Version
ddddd - 2016-02-25 10:39:49
ddddd_2 - 2016-03-01 00:11:46

On standby device:
Security Policy Name - Version
ddddd - 2016-03-01 00:11:41
ddddd_2 - 2016-02-25 10:39:49

According to the "Version" field (time stamps), the "ddddd" on active is actually "ddddd_2" on standby and then the other two policies are not the same.

The group ends up with three different policies on the two devices.

Conditions:
Active/Standby pair
ASM provisioned
Import security policy to the inactive policies list

Impact:
Three different policies are created on the two devices.

Workaround:
n/a

Fix:

577440-1 : audit logs may show connection to hagel.mnet

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
An iControl host header is improperly formatted with the name hagal.mnet

The request is properly delivered to the correct host but contains a badly addressed host header that is ignored.

If the authorization fails for the icontrol query then the audit log will contain this destination information which may be confusing.

Conditions:
Setting up device trust exercises this code path.

Impact:
No impact to functionality but is confusing for log interpretation.

Workaround:
There is not workaround

Fix:
When this bug is fixed then the host header is properly formatted with the destination of the iControl request.


576591-4 : Support for some future credit card number ranges

Conditions:
The Data Guard feature is turned on and set to Block, Alarm or Mask. The responses contains credit card number with specific ranges.

Impact:
The traffic passes unmasked or unblocked to the end client.

Workaround:
A custom pattern is possible for these cases, but should be adjusted to each customer specifically.


576350-2 : External input from client doesn't pass to policy agent if it is not the first in the chain.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When client gets authenticated, and then the session is deleted (times out or is manually deleted from memcache), the browser still has its authorization token.

If client refreshes the page, the browser passes the existing 'authorization' token, which gets deleted by the agent processing the existing task (a message box, in this case) for the targeted agent (HTTP_401_Response agent, in this case).

Conditions:
When a logon page is not the first agent in the access policy chain and it gets a pre-authenticated token from browser.

Impact:
Although client (browser) sends the pre-authenticated token, the browser still posts a challenge for credential (pop up window). This is unnecessary and should not occur.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
An HTTP_401_RESPONSE page can be placed anywhere in the access policy chain. Any pre-authenticated information for the targeted agent will not be consumed by another agent sitting in front.


576314-2 : SNMP traps for FIPS device fault inconsistent among versions.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The snmp traps bigipFipsDeviceError and bigipFipsFault are inconsistent among versions.

Conditions:

Impact:
The meaning of the trap is that the system is not able to perform any FIPS operations and process FIPS related traffic. You will need to be mindful of which version you are on to interpret the OIDs correctly.

Fix:
An SNMP trap is generated when the system has detected a FIPS device fault indicating that said device can no longer service FIPS operations. The OIDs are different across versions and one specific platform. Here is the OIDs and versions:

BIGIP-COMMON-MIB::bigipFipsDeviceError .1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.4.0.152
This trap means "Encountered error in the FIPS card operation" on all FIPS platforms

BIGIP-COMMON-MIB::bigipFipsFault .1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.4.0.156 (from v11.5.4-hf1 and 11.6.1, not 12.0.0)
BIGIP-COMMON-MIB::bigipFipsFault .1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.4.0.166 (from v12.1.0)
These traps mean "The FIPS card is currently in faulty state" for the specific FIPS hardware included on the BIG-IP 10350

1. Two virtual servers have the same IP-Port-RouteDomain setting, but they use different protocols (such as TCP for one and UDP for the other) or different sources.

2. A virtual server is defined with a masked IP address rather than an explicit address (for example, 10.10.10.0/24).

Impact:
As a result, Analytics reports show an Aggregated Virtual Server or an incorrect one instead of displaying the correct virtual servers.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Correct identification of the virtual server and the activity reported in the charts is displaying to the right virtual server.


575027-2 : Tagged VLAN configurations with a cmp-hash setting for the VLAN, might result in performance issues.

Fix:
ASM chassis blades are now synchronized correctly after every policy creation.


574153-2 : If an SSL client disconnects while data is being sent to SSL client, the connection may stall until TCP timeout.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If an SSL connection gracefully begins to disconnect at the same time as data is being encrypted by SSL acceleration hardware, the connection will remain open until the TCP profile timeout occurs instead of being closed immediately. This can cause unwanted higher memory usage, possibly causing crashes elsewhere.

Conditions:
* A virtual server with ClientSSL or ServerSSL profile.
* BIG-IP SSL acceleration hardware.
* While an SSL record is being encrypted by SSL accelerator hardware, the SSL connection begins to close by client TCP FIN or by any iRule command that closes the connection.

Impact:
There is a potential for higher memory usage, which in turn may cause TMM crash due to memory exhaustion resulting in service disruption.

Workaround:
If the affected SSL traffic does not include any long idle periods, memory consumption can be mitigated by reducing the idle timeout of the TCP or SCTP profile.

Fix:
SSL connections now disconnect normally if a disconnect attempt occurs while data is being encrypted by SSL acceleration hardware.


574116-2 : MCP may crash when syncing configuration between device groups

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
mcpd on the sync target crashes when syncing configuration.

Conditions:
This can occur when a local non-synced object references an object that is synced (such as a local-only virtual server referencing a synced iRule), and a non-synced object on the target machine happens to be referencing the same synced object. In this condition, mcpd could crash if objects in a sync group are deleted and synced.

Impact:
Outage due to mcp crash which causes tmm to restart.

Workaround:
When you have devices with local-only resources that are referencing objects contained in a sync/failover group, avoid deleting any objects (such as iRules) that might be referenced by other local-only resources on other devices. Instead of a "this object is in use error", mcpd on the target machine will crash.

Fix:
Verify existence of rule objects when validating configuration.


574055-3 : TMM crash after changing raccoon log level

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
TMM crashes after changing the raccoon log level to debug2

Conditions:

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
set debug level to INFO

Fix:
A tmm crash related to changing the debug level while passing traffic has been fixed.


574052-2 : GTM autoconf can cause high CPU usage for gtmd

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The autoconf feature of GTM can cause high CPU utilization (~90%) under certain situations.

In large configurations of LTM vses that contain "." (dot) in the name.

Conditions:
Large configuration of LTM VS that contain "." in the name have the name converted ("." is replaced by "_") and the LTM VS name is saved to the config.

This causes the matching algorithm in autoconf to spend many CPU cycles walking the list of VS to find a match.

This problem is caused by large numbers of VSes on a GTM Server. (10k VSes on 10k Server is less of an issue
than 10k VSes on 1 GTM Server)

Impact:
CPU usage is high, which may impact monitoring and LB decisions.

Workaround:
There are some mitigations. The preferable (for performance
and stability) are listed first.

1. Rename the virtual servers on the LTM to remove the "."
   This would require deleting the GTM configuration and
   rediscovering it and recreating pools.

2. Turn off autoconf.
   Run autoconf once to populate the config, then turn it
   off.

3. Reduce the frequency of autoconf. It will still cause
   a high CPU usage scenario, but it will be less frequent.

Versions 12.0.0 and higher do not convert the "." to "_". So that problem is eliminated for new configurations.
If a customer upgrades to 12.0.0 and the config still contains VS names that were previously converted, they still may run into high CPU usage.
Upgrading to 12.0.0 alone does not fix this issue, a reconfig would be necessary.

Fix:
Change algorithm used to match LTM VS names to GTM VS to reduce linear walk of all VSes on a server.


574045-2 : BGP may not accept attributes using extended length

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If a BGP peer sends a path attribute using the "extended length" flag and field, the attribute may be rejected and the BGP connection terminated.

Conditions:
Neighbor sends path attributes using extended length.

Impact:
The BGP adacency will repeatedly bounce and the RIB will never converge.

Fix:
Received BGP attributes using extended length are no longer rejected.


574020-4 : Safenet HSM installation script fails to install successfully if partition password contains special metacharacters (!#{}')

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Safenet HSM installation script fails to install successfully if partition password contains special metacharacters (!#{}').

Conditions:
This issue occurs when the following conditions are met:

-- Safenet HSM installation.
-- Password contains special metacharacters (!#{}').

Impact:
Script fails to work properly, and fails to properly install/configure the HSMs, requiring manual intervention. Performing the operation manually is very complex, because the user must account for both tmsh and shell quoting, which the some user environments might not have.

Workaround:
Change password, or manually run tmsh command to define the /sys crypto fips external-hsm object (using proper shell quoting).

Fix:
Safenet HSM installation script install now completes successfully if partition password contains special metacharacters (!#{}').

Note: When using passwords with non-alphanumeric characters, make sure that they are escaped correctly, so that bash does not attempt to reinterpret or expand the password.

573075-2 : ADAPT recursive loop when handling successive iRule events

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
After the first iRule resumes from being parked, ADAPT attempts to process the second iRule event repeatedly.
The connection is aborted with RST cause "ADAPT unexpected state transition".
The adapt profile statistic "records adapted" reaches a very high number as it counts every attempt.

Conditions:
A requestadapt or responseadapt profile is configured.
An iRule is triggered on the ADAPT_REQUEST_RESULT or ADAPT_RESPONSE_RESULT event, that parks.
The modified headers (from an ICAP server) arrive at the ADAPT filter while the first event is parked.
Any iRule on the ADAPT_REQUEST_HEADERS or ADAPT_RESPONSE_HEADERS event does not park.

Impact:
The connection is aborted with RST cause "ADAPT unexpected state transition".
The statistic "records adapted" reaches a very high number.
Eventually the TMM crashes and the Big-IP fails over.

Workaround:
If possible, arrange the iRules to avoid the conditions above.
In particular, if there is no better way, it is possible to avoid this if there is an iRule on the ADAPT_REQUEST_HEADERS or ADAPT_RESPONSE_HEADERS event that parks.

Fix:
ADAPT correctly processes successive iRule events exactly once for each adaptation, and the "records adapted" statistic reports the correct number.

572563-3 : PWS session does not launch on Internet Explorer

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Internet Explorer (IE) gets stuck entering Protected Work Space (PWS).

Conditions:
One of the DLLs provided by APM, vdeskctrl.dll, provides COM services. Internet Explorer (IE), consumes the COM services. The DLL is loaded by IE during upgrade of PWS components. For some reason (especially on slow systems), IE does not unload the the old DLL promptly after upgrading PWS. When COM services are invoked to initialize PWS after upgrade, old DLL provides the service. Due to the recent renewal of our signing certificate, old DLL can't certify the integrity of the new PWS components. We have researched the issue, but we have not found a way to instruct IE to unload the old DLL after upgrade.

Impact:
PWS session does not launch.

Workaround:
After upgrade, if Internet Explorer(IE) does not enter into PWS within 60 seconds, close IE and start a new session. This is an one time event.

Fix:
Internet Explorer can now launch a Protected Workspace session.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
After upgrading, unable to view certain certs from gui. Catalina.out file could contain the signature MalformedByteSequenceException: Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence.

iControl SOAP methods
====================
Management::KeyCertificate::get_certificate_list and get_certificate_list_v2 will return an exception if returning a certificate with special characters.

Conditions:
SSL Certificate with special characters might cause exception when GUI retrieves items list page. This has been observed on upgrades to BIG-IP version 11.5.4 through 12.0.0.

Impact:
The GUI does not display the page containing certificate information. iControl SOAP cannot return a list of certificates if they contain information with special characters.

571210-4 : Upgrade, load config, or sync might fail on large configs with large objects.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Attempting to load a large config with large objects may result in the following error message:

err mcpd[7366]: 01070710:3: Database error (52), Can't write blob data, attribute:implementation status:52 - EdbBlobData.cpp, line 57

Attempting to synchronize a large change may result in the following error messages and a crash of the MCPD process:

err mcpd[8210]: 01071693:3: Incremental sync: Caught an exception while adding a transaction to the incremental config sync cache: unexpected exception.

err mcpd[8210]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: MCPProcessor::processRequestNow: Can't write blob data, attribute:msgs status:52

err mcpd[8210]: 01070596:3: An unexpected failure has occurred, request_group destroyed while processing, exiting...

Conditions:
The config must be approximately 19.75 MB (slightly less) prior to processing a large object in the config that exceeds 256 KB.

Or, once config exceeds 19.75 MB and 2 MB of additional memory has been allocated, processing config objects that exceed 256 KB (the larger, the more likely to occur) lead to the error.

Impact:
Upgrade, load config, or sync might fail, and a system crash and restart might occur.

Workaround:
Stagger the load, or reduce the size of particularly large objects within a config.

Fix:
Memory handling is improved so that large configs with large objects now successfully complete upon upgrade, load config, or sync.


571183-2 : Bundle-certificates Not Accessible via iControl REST.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:

Fix:
The memory leak issue has been fixed.


570640-2 : APM Cannot create symbolic link to sandbox. Error: No such file or directory

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
The user may encounter the following configuration error when adding a new APM sandbox-contained object in a non-default partition (other than /Common) if the user has ever attempted (but failed) to delete this partition (for example, couldn't delete it because it was not empty).

01070734:3: Configuration error: Cannot create symbolic link to sandbox. Error: No such file or directory. If you have access to bash shell, try to run command: ln -s /config/filestore/files_d/p1_d/sandbox_file_d /var/sam/www/webtop/sandbox/files_d/p1_d/sandbox_file_d. Then try to upload file again.
Unexpected Error: Validating configuration process failed.

Conditions:

/var/sam/www/webtop/sandbox/files_d/OUTSIDE_PROD_d/sandbox_file_d
After creating the directors sync to active unit.


570617-4 : HTTP parses fragmented response versions incorrectly

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When a fragmented response is parsed by HTTP, the version field may be incorrectly bounded. HTTP correctly determines the version of the response. However, other filters that re-scan the version field might see a truncated value. The filters then miss-parse the HTTP version.

Conditions:
A fragmented response where the HTTP version field appears in multiple packets. Another filter, for example VDI, re-scans the HTTP version field.

Impact:
The detected version of HTTP may be incorrect. Typically, the response is detected as a HTTP/0.9 response rather than the 1.0 or 1.1 response it actually uses.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
HTTP correctly bounds the response version for other filters to parse.


570563-2 : CRL is not being imported/exported properly

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
CRL assigned as part of Machine Cert Auth is not being imported/exported properly.

Conditions:
This occurs when importing SSL Certificates and Keys using the CRL type. Or when adding the Machine Cert Check agent to import an Access Profile in when creating a New Certificate Authority Profile.

Impact:
Prevents CRL from being exported. Might also impact the import/export of Certificate Authority Profiles.

Workaround:
1. Copy and install the CRL to the other BIG-IP system separately.
2. Modify the exported configuration to use CRL from step 1

Fix:
Import and export of CRL is fully supported.

570419-2 : Use of session DB on multi-process appliances and blades may core.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
On selected devices and blades, tmm runs multiple processes. When running multiple processes, the session DB may occasionally attempt an operation that will cause a tmm segfault.

Conditions:
In order to experience this failure, tmm must be running in multiple processes on the appliance or on the blade, and session DB usage is required with mirroring.

Impact:
Outage and restart of tmm. This applies when bringing up blades as well as bringing peers online.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Use of session DB on multi-process appliances and blades no longer cores when bringing up blades as well as bringing peers online.


570363-2 : Potential segfault when MRF messages cross from one TMM to another.

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
Potential segfault when Message Routing Framework (MRF) messages cross from one TMM to another.

Conditions:
This issue occurs when MRF messages travel from one TMM to another, and an asynchronous operation also occurs (like persistence).

Impact:
It is possible for the message object to be removed before the asynchronous operation completes. If this occurs, a segfault may occur and the system might restart.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release corrects the issue of potential segfault occurring when MRF messages cross from one TMM to another.

3. Performs config sync in HA setup.

Impact:
Missing certkeychain of a clientSSL profile can result in its inability to handle some kind of SSL traffic. For example, if the clientSSL originally has EC key/cert but loses it, then it is no longer able to handle SSL connection using EC cipher suites.

Workaround:
Basically reconfigure certkeychain but avoid modifying the content.
1. On any BIG-IP system, leave only the RSA certkeychain in the clientSSL profile, just like the default configuration.
2. Config sync, so that both systems have only the RSA certkeychain.
3. In any BIG-IP system, add certkeychains for other types (EC or DSA) you need. You can "add" or "delete" but do not "modify" any existing certkeychain.
4. Do config sync, so that both systems have the same certkeychains in the clientSSL profile.


569972-2 : Unable to create gtm topology records using iControl REST

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The user is unable to create gtm topology records using iControl REST.

Conditions:
This occurs when a user issues an iControl REST POST command for a gtm topology record.

Impact:
The iControl REST POST command fails with the following error: 'Topologies must specify both regions: ldns: server:'.

Workaround:
Use TMSH, iControl SOAP, or the GUI to create gtm topology records.

Fix:
You can now create gtm topology records using iControl REST.

Please be sure to format the gtm topology oid string using the following rules:

1) Use only a single space between each item in the topology string.
2) Use a fully-pathed name for datacenter, isp, region, and pool objects.

For example:
"ldns: subnet 11.11.11.0/24 server: datacenter /Common/DC".


569958-2 : Upgrade for application security anomalies

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
If upgrading to newer version, old statistics for application security anomalies are not shown.

Conditions:
Upgrade from BIG-IP version older than 12.1.0 to newer version

Impact:
Losing old statistics for application security anomalies

Fix:
Upgrade to newer version and verify that old statistics are shown.


569642-4 : Deleting all routes on a unit with a mirroring fastL4 Virtual may cause TMM to core

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In certain circumstances TMM may core if an HA pair configured with mirroring has all the routes to the server pool removed.

Conditions:
- HA pair.
 - FastL4 VIP with mirroring.
 - default route to pool via an intermediate router.
 - The active unit is handling traffic.
 - Active unit fails over and loses its mirroring connection.
 - Prior active unit comes back and HA connection is reestablished.
 - During the loss of HA and its recovery the now active unit loses its only route to the pool member.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Do not remove all routes to poolmembers. If this is needed please create other backup routes prior to the deletion.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores on deleting all routes on a unit with a mirroring fastL4 Virtual during HA connection loss and recovery.


569634 : Aced process is not able to listen to port 6000

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When Aced process cannot listen to the port, it aborts and causes core dump to be produced.

Conditions:
In certain scenarios, an exiting instance of aced process does not perform a proper cleanup of the socket(listening of port 6000) and does not exit completely and the new instance of aced wont be able to listen to it.

Impact:
Aced process keeps crashing repeatedly.

Fix:
Aced process is fixed in order to explicitly close the socket file descriptor during exit. The new instance will be able to listen to that port.


569521-4 : Invalid WideIP name without dots crashes gtmd.

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If a user creates a WideIP or WideIP Alias with a name that does not contain a dot, gtmd crashes.

The symptom is a crash and core dump from gtmd.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
-- FQDN validation is suppressed by the following setting: gtm global-settings general domain-name-check == 'none'.
-- User attempts to create a WideIP with a name that does not contain a dot.

Impact:
gtmd crashes and WideIPs do not function.

Workaround:
When creating a WideIP or WideIP Alias while FQDN validation has been disabled (by setting gtm global-settings general domain-name-check == 'none'), make sure that the WideIP or WideIP Alias name contains at least one dot, and follows these rules:
-- The name must not end with a dot.
-- The name must not begin with a dot, unless '.' is the entire name.
-- The name contains no consecutive dots.

Fix:
FQDN now validates to confirm that a WideIP or WideIP Alias name has at least one dot in an appropriate position, and has no consecutive dots, so there is no crash and core dump from gtmd. This validation occurs even when other FQDN validation has been suppressed by setting
gtm globlal-settings general domain name check == 'none'.


569472-2 : TMM segfault in lb_why_pmbr_str after GTM/BIG-IP DNS disables a GTM pool and LB why log is enabled

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
tmm cores with sigsegv within lb_why_pmbr_str.

Conditions:
1. Disable a GTM/BIG-IP DNS pool or pool member;
2. pool-member-selection is enabled for load-balancing-decision-log-verbosity.

Impact:
tmm cores.

Workaround:
Disable pool-member-selection for load-balancing-decision-log-verbosity.

Fix:
tmm no longer cores when disabling pool-member-selection for load-balancing-decision-log-verbosity.


569467-11 : BIG-IP and BIG-IQ cloud image vulnerability CVE-2016-2084.

Vulnerability Solution Article: K11772107


569356-2 : BGP ECMP learned routes may use incorrect vlan for nexthop

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
BGP with ECMP may result in learned routes using an incorrect next-hop vlan if there are more than one VLAN configured with global IPv6 addresses in the same RD where the routing protocol is running.

Conditions:
BIG-IP configuration with two or more VLANs configured with IPv6 global addresses and BGP with ECMP is peered with an active IPv6 BGP neighbor. The BGP is also configured with max-paths.

Impact:
The traffic randomly gets sent using the incorrect nexthop.

Workaround:
None

Fix:
Routes learned from the peer will have the correct nexthop VLANs.


569349-2 : Packet's vlan priority is not preserved for CMP redirected flows when net cos feature is enabled

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When net cos (class of Service) feature is enabled, vlan priority for those cmp redirected packets are not being preserved from ingress to egress.

Conditions:
1. net cos feature is enabled
2. packet is being cmp redirected from one tmm to another tmm for processing.

Impact:
Egress packets are not being processed according to the ingress vlan priority by BIG-IP and down stream router. Certain packets will be dropped by downstream router due to the wrong mark of vlan priority.

Workaround:
None.


569337-2 : TCP events are logged twice in a HA setup

Component: Advanced Firewall Manager

Symptoms:
TCP log events are logged twice (if enabled in security log profile) with connection mirroring enabled on the virtual server in a HA setup (Active/Standby).

Conditions:
When there's a HA setup (Active/Standby) or both client side and server side connection flow.

Impact:
TCP log events are logged twice (duplicate events from active unit and standby unit or from both client side and server side of the connection flow).

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
TCP log events are no longer logged twice when enabled in the security log profile with connection mirroring enabled on the virtual server in a HA setup (Active/Standby).


569309-1 : Clientside HTML parser does not recognize HTML event attributes without value

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Assignment of a specific HTML content to tag.innerHTML could lead to a JavaScript error. This happens when one or more of tags in HTML text contain html event attributes without value (such as <div onclick />)

Following or similar error is logged in browser JavaScript console:
Unable to get property 'charAt' of undefined or null reference

Impact:
Web application does not work when accessed through Portal Access.

Workaround:
iRule could be provided for specific application.

Fix:
Now empty inline event handler attributes are not rewritten on client side.


569306-3 : Edge client does not use logon credentials even when "Reuse Windows Logon Credentials" is selected

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
User is shown the logon page to connect to VPN after he logs on. Windows logon credentials are not used for VPN automatically.

Conditions:
Connectivity profile has "Reuse Windows Logon Credentials" selected

Impact:
User has to retype his credentials to connect to VPN

Workaround:
Enter the credentials again to connect to VPN

Fix:
Now logged on credentials are used automatically to connect to VPN


569288-2 : Different LACP key may be used in different blades in a chassis system causing trunking failures

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In rare conditions, different blades in a chassis system may use different LACP keys for the same trunk in the LACP control frames. This will cause some of the LACP trunk members not able to aggregate successfully with peer switch.

Conditions:
This only happens in a chassis based system when certain race condition causes trunk id being modified after initial trunk creation.

Impact:
Non aggregated trunk members won't be able to pass traffic.

Workaround:
Restart lacpd in all the blades in the chassis by running command "clsh bigstart restart lacpd"


569255-3 : Network Access incorrectly manipulates routing table when second adapter being connected if "Allow Local subnet access' is set to ON

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When Network Access is already established and a second network interface is being connected to client system, VPN quickly reconnects, which breaks existing TCP connections. Because reconnect occurs very quickly, it might appear to the user that nothing happened.

Conditions:
-- 'Allow Local subnet access' enabled.
-- Client system is getting second network interface connected.

Impact:
Long-standing TCP connection may break, for example, VPN over Network Access.

Workaround:
Disable 'Allow Local subnet access'.

Fix:
Now Network Access remains stable when a second network interface is being connected, so any long-standing TCP connections (such as VPN over Network Access) continue as expected.


569236-4 : BIG-IP logs INVALID-SPI messages but does not remove the associated SAs.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The BIG-IP system logs INVALID-SPI messages but does not remove the associated Security Associations (SAs) corresponding to the message. This is the first part of a fix provided for this issue. See fixes for bug 569236 for the second part.

Conditions:
This can occur if an IPsec peer deletes a phase2 (IPsec) SA and does not send a 'notify delete' message to the other peer. The INVALID-SPI message is most likely to be seen when the peer deletes an SA before the SA's agreed lifetime.

Impact:
If the BIG-IP is always the Initator, the Responder will not initiate a new tunnel if the Responder only handles responses to the BIG-IP clients' traffic. The BIG-IP system continues to use the IPsec SA it believes to be still up. When an SA expires prematurely, some IPsec peers will reject an inbound SPI packet with an ISAKMP INVALID-SPI notify message. If the INVALID-SPI message does not cause new SAs to be created, there will be a tunnel outage until the SA lifetime expires on the defunct SA held on the BIG-IP system.

Workaround:
Manually remove the invalid SA on the BIG-IP system.

Fix:
Now, when the BIG-IP system receives INVALID-SPI messages, it deletes the invalid Security Association as well as logging the INVALID-SPI message, so the tunnel can initiate again. This is part one of a two-part fix. Fixes for bug 583285 provide part two of the fix.


569206-2 : After connectivity loss and restoration between HSM and pkcs11d, SSL fails on some blades.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
After connectivity loss and restoration between HSM and pkcs11d, SSL fails on some blades.

Conditions:
Connectivity loss and restoration between HSM and pkcs11d.

Impact:
Sometimes, one or more blades have SSL failure consistently. Others are working fine after the network restoring.

Workaround:
None. This is an intermittent failure.

Fix:
All blades now recover the working condition after the network is restored.


568889-2 : Some ZebOS daemons do not start on blade transition secondary to primary.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
In some specific cases the standby unit's secondary blade ZebOS daemons might not get started when it becomes active.

Conditions:
If the failover occurs as a result of the primary blade's mcpd restarting

Impact:
The new primary blade does not start some ZebOS daemons resulting in ospf not working as expected on the standby unit.

Workaround:
Run the following tmsh command on the new active unit: bigstart restart tmrouted.

Fix:
The BIG_IP system now correctly starts ZebOS daemons on the standby unit on a new blade that is starting up as a primary.


568743-3 : TMM core when dnssec queries to dns-express zone exceed nethsm capacity

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
tmm crashes, and in /var/log/ltm you see entries indicating "Signature failed":

err tmm1[16816]: 01010216:3: DNSSEC: Signature failed (signature creation) for RRSET (host0530.f5test.net, 1) with key /Common/myZSK2, generation 1.

Conditions:
This can occur when a dns-express zone generates more responses than the Thales can sign. The excess requests are queued and tmm can core.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
TMM no longer core when dnssec queries to dns-express zone exceed nethsm capacity.


568670-2 : ASM fails to start with error - ndefined subroutine &F5::CRC::get_crc32

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
ASM fails to start with error in ts_debug.log -

Undefined subroutine &F5::CRC::get_crc32 called at /usr/local/share/perl5/F5/RamCache.pm line 69

Conditions:
asm provisioned

Impact:
asm fails to start

Workaround:
n/a

Fix:
A rare condition in which asm fails to start has been fixed


568543-3 : Syncookie mode is activated on wildcard virtuals

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Syncookie mode can be activated with a wildcard virtual, even in the case where there is no SYN flood.

Conditions:
The default number of connections per second before activating syncookie mode is 1993. This value can be increased to a max of 4093. After this threshold is reached, then syncookie mode is activated. This is an insufficient maximum for wildcard virtuals, since they can have 30k+ connections per second.

Impact:
Syncookie mode is activated with high connection rates to a wildcard virtual.

Workaround:
Break up the wildcard virtual into multiple virtuals to reduce the number of connections per virtual.

Fix:
It is now possible to set the PvaSynCookies.Virtual.MaxSynCache DB variable to 64K (previous max was 4093)


567862-1 : intermittent SSL traffic failure with Safenet HSM on BIG-IP chassis and appliance

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
BIG-IP intermittently has SSL traffic failures with HSM. This symptom happens on both chassis and appliance. The general error messages are logged with

"FIPS acceleration device failure: fips_poll_completed_reqs: req: 44 status: 0x1 : Cancel"

Conditions:
When Safenet HSM is used with BIG-IP.

Impact:
SSL traffic is failing.

Workaround:
"bigstart restart pkcs11d" might mitigate this issue.

Fix:
Multiple issues are fixed including better sync-up between tmm and pkcs11d. Fixes are also included to deal with key handle changes at HSM.


567774-1 : ca-devices and non-ca-devices addition/deletion has been removed from restart cm trust-domain Root

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The properties 'ca-devices' and 'non-ca-device' are available in the 'restart' command but are not valid.

Conditions:
None

Impact:
You should not use the restart command with the properties 'ca-devices' and 'non-ca-device'. It has to be used similar to the delete command.

Workaround:
A new tmsh command to reset a device trust was added:
'restart cm trust-domain Root' which operates exactly like 'delete cm trust-domain Root'. The properties 'ca-devices' and 'non-ca-device' are available in the 'restart' command but are not valid. These properties are not available in the 'delete cm trust-domain'. Workaround for customer is to not use these two properties when running the 'restart cm trust-domain' command or to use the 'delete cm trust-domain'

Fix:
The 'ca-devices' and 'non-ca-devices' properties were removed from the tmsh command 'restart cm trust-domain' command because they are not valid.


567660-2 : Disabling global Auto Last Hop setting breaks APM's Remote Desktop Gateway (RDG) feature

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Existing TCP connection is being sporadically disrupted by BIGIP virtual server sending out a SYN, ACK, causing existing connection to fail.
The client and virtual server setup a good tcp connection, complete SSL handshake and starts to pass application data.
APM virtual then sends SYN, ACK with sequence and ack numbers which do not match existing stream.
The APM then tries three syn-ack's before giving up and sends out a rst-ack which drops the connection attempt, but as it shares the same ip:port number as the existing connection, resets the good connection.

Conditions:
Auto Last Hop setting is disabled

Impact:
APM RDG feature does not work

Workaround:
1. Enable Auto Last Hop
OR
2. Set cmp_enabled to 'NO' on virtual

Fix:
APM RDG feature now works as expected when Auto Last Hop is disabled.


567503-5 : ACCESS::remove can result in confusing ERR_NOT_FOUND logs

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When using the iRule command ACCESS::remove, ERR_NOT_FOUND messages may appear in /var/log/apm. Theses are not real errors. ACCESS is trying to insert a session variable, but it is not able to find the session because the iRule already deleted the session.

The logs in /var/log/apm look something like this:
err tmm1[15932]: 01490514:3: 00000000: Access encountered error: ERR_NOT_FOUND. File: ../modules/hudfilter/access/access.c, Function: access_save_init_req_to_sessiondb, Line: 14823.

Conditions:
An iRule using the command ACCESS::remove, and the end-user does a POST.

Impact:
No functional impact, the iRule correctly deletes the session, and BIG-IP does not send a reset. But the log messages can be alarming or confusing.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
ACCESS::remove no longer results in confusing ERR_NOT_FOUND logs.

Vulnerability Solution Article: K53445000


567457-3 : TMM may crash when changing the IKE peer config.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
TMM might crash when changing the IKE peer config. It can happen with either IKEv1 or IKEv2 (TMM config crash).

Conditions:
This occurs when making changes to IPsec tunnels that causes the configuration to become invalid. For example, changing ISAKMP phase1 from SHA-1 to MD5 results in an invalid configuration.

Note: This occurs in the GUI only. The tmsh 'create' command does not cause this core.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
You can use tmsh to make the affected configuration changes... this occurs in the GUI only. The tmsh 'create' command does not cause this core.

Fix:
TMM no longer crashes when changing the IKEv1 or IKEv2 peer config, even if the changes are not valid for the configuration.


567379-1 : libtar vulnerability CVE-2013-4397

Symptoms:
Saved scheduled report will be lost after loading the system configuration.

Conditions:
Create scheduled report.
Save the configuration.
Load the configuration.
The scheduled report wont be existing anymore.

Impact:
The scheduled report can be lost.

Fix:
A saved scheduled report is no longer lost after loading the system configuration.


566998-2 : Edge client upgrade fails if client was configured in locked mode

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Edge client cannot be upgraded automatically to a newer version

Conditions:
Edge client package was downloaded with "Enable Always Connected mode" option checked

Server contains a newer version of edge client

Impact:
Automatic upgrade of edge client will fail

Workaround:
Manually uninstall and re-install client


566908-5 : Webserver listening on local Wifi or ethernet IP cannot be accessed after VPN with proxy.pac file

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Webserver listening on local Wifi or ethernet IP cannot be accessed after VPN if proxy.pac is defined in a way that forwards all web traffic over VPN.

Conditions:
proxy.pac, network access, OS X system.

Impact:
Local web server is inaccessible if proxy.pac is defined in a way that forwards all traffic over VPN to corporate proxy server.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Webserver listening on local Wifi or Ethernet IP can be accessed after VPN even if proxy.pac is defined in a way that forwards all web traffic over VPN to corporate proxy server.


566758-2 : Manual changes to policy imported as XML may introduce corruption for Login Pages

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Manual changes to policy imported as XML may introduce corruption for Login Pages. If the expiration period is omitted, the Login Page will be inaccessible.

Conditions:
Expiration period is omitted in hand-crafted XML policy file.

Impact:
The Login Page created as a result is inaccessible in GUI and REST.

Workaround:
Ensure that expiration period exists in XML policy file before import.

Fix:
A policy file, with a missing expiration field, imported as XML is now handled correctly.


566646-4 : Portal Access could respond very slowly for large text files when using IE < 11

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When accessing a large 'text/plain' file from server with Internet Explorer versions 7 through 10 client browsers, Portal Access sometimes holds the response until it fetches and processes the entire file contents. This can take several dozen seconds, or even minutes.

Conditions:
Internet Explorer version 7 through 10 with Portal Access

Impact:
Large text files can't be accessed or downloaded through Portal Access.

Workaround:
Irule that does any of following:
a) Preferred: append F5CH=I to request uri in HTTP_REQUEST for affected requests.
b) Call REWRITE::disable for affected requests.

Fix:
Fixed the issue where Portal Access could try to buffer contents of some large files and respond with significant delay.


566576-2 : ICAP/OneConnect reuses connection while previous response is in progress

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
ICAP with OneConnect sometimes initiates a new ICAP request (REQMOD or RESPMOD) on the server connection while a previous response on the same connection is still being streamed from the ICAP server. This can cause the server to append the new response after the end of the previous response, in the same packet.

Conditions:
There is a 'oneconnect' profile on the internal virtual server along with the 'icap' profile.
Triggered by a disconnection of the IVS by the parent HTTP virtual server, before the ICAP transaction is complete.
This can happen for a number of reasons, such as an error in detected on the HTTP virtual server, or an HTTP::respond iRule that replaces an IVS response in progress.

Impact:
The connection used by the interrupted transaction is returned to the pool for reuse, potentially resulting in a new ICAP transaction beginning before the end of the interrupted one, and its response may be concatenated to the incomplete tail of the first one. OneConnect is unable to separate the contiguous ICAP responses whose boundary is within a packet. All the packet payload goes to the first ICAP transaction, and any payload after the terminating chunk is discarded. Thus the beginning of the second response is lost and its header parser gets confused. It keeps waiting for more data and rescanning the entire response, resulting in increasing CPU use up to 100% until the connection is aborted.

Workaround:
Remove OneConnect.

Fix:
Big-IP with ICAP and OneConnect never reuses a server connection while a previous ICAP transaction is still in progress. Whenever the IVS disconnects prior to completion of an ICAP transaction, the connection is not pooled for reuse.


566507-2 : Wrong advertised next-hop in BGP for a traffic group in Active-Active deployment

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The advertised next-hop is a floating-IP of the active traffic-group on a peer BIG-IP system, although it should be the floating-IP of the traffic-group active on the current BIG-IP system.

Conditions:
-- In a BIG-IP high availability (HA) configuration.
-- The HA configuration is Active-Active topology.
-- There are multiple traffic-groups, in which each device is active for one traffic-group.

Impact:
An incorrect next-hop in BGP is advertised for a traffic group in Active-Active deployment. Traffic for relevant advertised routes might go to a standby device.

Workaround:
Configure the floating address of a traffic group as the next-hop in its route-map.

Fix:
The advertised next-hop in BGP is now the smallest floating-IP active on the current BIG-IP system. Note: The ZebOS routing protocol suite available for BIG-IP configurations does not support traffic groups, so this issue might still be seen in certain circumstances.


566361-8 : RAM Cache Key Collision

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Intermittent tmm SIGSEGV when RAM Cache is enabled

Conditions:
This occurs when RAM cache is enabled in certain circumstances.

Impact:
Invalid response format, and/or serving the wrong object from cache, and/or tmm crash, interruption of service.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The system now avoids RAM Cache Key collisions, the correct object and response format are delivered from the cache, and tmm no longer cores.


566061-3 : Subscriber info missing in flow report after subscriber has been deleted

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
If we have a subscriber flow during which the subscriber gets deleted, then the flow reports begin to report subscriber id as "unknown". It becomes difficult to map the flow to that specific subscriber.

Conditions:
Flow reporting is enabled for a subscriber. And the subscriber gets deleted in the middle of a flow.

Impact:
If the customer is looking for subscriber id to match the flows, then they would miss out on these flows that get reported with unknown subscriber.

Fix:
We now save the subscriber id so that it can be accessed even after the subscriber has been deleted.


565895-4 : Multiple PCRE Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Solution Article: K17235


565810-2 : OneConnect profile with an idle or strict limit-type might lead to tmm core.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
OneConnect profile with an idle or strict limit-type might lead to tmm core.

Conditions:
OneConnect profile with a limit-type value of idle or strict.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Use a limit-type of 'none'.

Fix:
A OneConnect profile using an idle or strict limit-type no longer causes the tmm to core when attempting to shutdown idle connections.


565799-2 : CPU Usage increases when using masquerade addresses

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When using masquerade addresses, CPU usage increases. This can ultimately lead to a reduction in device capacity.

Conditions:
This can occur if one or more of your traffic groups is configured to use a MAC Masquerade address.

Impact:
Possible performance degradation or reduction in capacity

Fix:
Performance of masquerade address checks is restored.


565765-3 : Flow reporting does not occur for unclassified flows.

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
Flow reports are missing for some of the flows.

Conditions:
Flow reporting action has been configured with no classification filter. This was observed for flows that remained unclassified until the very end.

Impact:
If you are using flow reports to track the data usage of the subscriber, the usage will not be accurate.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
For flows that do not get classified at all, the system now sends out flow reports at the end of the flow. The FLOW_INIT and FLOW_END reports are sent out in this case (that is, there are no FLOW_INTERIM reports). This is correct behavior


565534-2 : Some failover configuration items may fail to take effect

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
These symptoms apply to version 12.0.0 and later:

When only multicast failover is configured, traffic-groups are active on all devices in the device-group. If unicast failover is also configured, the traffic-group unexpectedly switches to a different device.

These symptoms can occur on all versions:

When the unicast address list is changed at the same time as other device properties, sod (the failover daemon) may fail to recognize one of the other changes.

Conditions:
For version 12.0.0 and later:

Multicast failover is configured and the system loads the configuration from the configuration files. For example during the first boot of a new boot location, or after performing the procedure in K13030: Forcing the mcpd process to reload the BIG-IP configuration https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13030.

For all versions:

A change is made to the cm device configuration that includes a unicast-address change along with something else.

Impact:
When only multicast failover is configured, traffic-groups may become active on all devices in the device-group. If unicast failover is also configured, the traffic-group might switch to a different device.

Workaround:
Mitigation for v12.0.0 (and later) symptom:

To restore multicast failover, disable and re-enable multicast failover.

To do so, perform the following procedure on the the local device.
1. Determine which interface is being used for multicast failover by running the following tmsh command:
list cm device device1 multicast-interface.
3. Disable and re-enable multicast failover by running the following tmsh commands:
modify cm device device1 { multicast-interface none }.
modify cm device device1 { multicast-interface eth0 }.


Mitigation for all versions symptoms:
Do not make cm device unicast-address changes simultaneously with changes to other cm device properties.

Fix:
With the fix, sod now sends out multicast FO heartbeat datagrams under the same condition.


565527-3 : Static proxy settings are not applied if NA configuration

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Applications that cannot evaluate PAC file cannot make use of static proxy configuration either.

Conditions:
- Network Access (NA) setting has static proxy configuration.
- Application on user's system does not support proxy auto configuration, but does support static proxy configuration.

Impact:
Application cannot make connections if the proxy is required to connect to the destination. This could result in failed connection from that application

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Static proxy settings are now applied in Network Access configurations. This allow applications that do not support PAC files to work inside the VPN.


565463-2 : ASM-config consumes 1.3GB RAM after repeated Policy Import via REST

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Multiple ASM-config processes are running (more than 10) and consuming more than a GB.

Conditions:
ASM provisioned.
Repeated policy import via REST.

Impact:
The BIG-IP system might run low on memory and post the following message in /var/log/kern.log: Out of memory: Kill process 22699.

Workaround:
Restart asm - disrupting
Restart asm_config_server.pl - non disrupting

Fix:

Impact:
False positive missing component no-cookie alerts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
If the Component Check cookie exists and cookie parsing fails for different reasons, the system now sends different alert components (Unseal Failed or Cookie Malformed).


564039-3 : WebSafe "Missing component" check gets applied on request with different referrer domain.

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
The "Missing component" checker looks only looks at referrer header path and not the domain name. The result is a false positive alert indicating the cookie is missing.

Conditions:
The referrer is coming from a different domain and the system is still performing component validation check.

Impact:
False positive missing component alerts when redirecting from other sites to a WebSafe protected site.

Workaround:
Do not configure the same URL as a protected page.

563475-3 : ePVA dynamic offloading can result in immediate eviction and re-offloading of flows.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
ePVA dynamic offloading can result in immediate eviction and re-offloading of flows. If dynamic offloading is enabled in the fastl4 profile, flows that collide in the ePVA will ping/pong in and out of the ePVA due to immediate eviction and re-offloading. Flows that are evicted due to collisions are reported in the epva_flowstat stats, tot.hash_evict.

Conditions:
A fastl4 profile with PVA Offload Dynamic enabled and two flows that result in a hash collision, resulting in an evicted flow.

Impact:
Flows that collide will be re-offloaded, evicted, and then re-offloaded again within a short time span. It is unknown if there is a direct impact, but in some cases a delay in processing packets on a connection may occur.

Workaround:
Disable PVA Offload Dynamic in the fastl4 profile. Another option would be to disable PVA Flow Evict in the fastl4 profile.

Fix:
The system now handles flows involved in hash collisions such that ePVA dynamic offloading no longer results in immediate eviction and re-offloading of flows.


563474-2 : SNMP F5-BIGIP-APM-MIB::apmPmStatConfigSyncState returns 0 for edited access profile

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
F5-BIGIP-APM-MIB::apmPmStatConfigSyncState returns a zero value for an APM access profile that has been edited but not yet applied, which should instead return a non-zero value.

config # snmpwalk -v2c 127.0.0.1 -c public F5-BIGIP-APM-MIB::apmPmStatConfigSyncState
F5-BIGIP-APM-MIB::apmPmStatConfigSyncState."/Common/my-test-access" = Counter64: 0

Conditions:
The access profile has been edited but not yet applied.

Impact:
SNMP users cannot discriminate the status of an APM access profile: applied or not applied.

Workaround:
None available.

Fix:
F5-BIGIP-APM-MIB::apmPmStatConfigSyncState now returns the correct non-zero value.


563419-5 : IPv6 packets containing extended trailer are dropped

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:

563237 : ASM REST: name for ipIntelligenceReference is incorrect

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
The reference name for a Security Policy's ip-intelligence configuration is not consistent with F5 REST standards; which dictate that a reference name starts with a lower case letter.

In the return for a policy resource the following is seen:
...
 'IpIntelligenceReference': {
                'link': 'https://localhost/mgmt/tm/asm/policies/<POLICY ID>/ip-intelligence'
...

This should be 'ipIntelligenceReference'

This has already been corrected in versions 12.0.0 and later.

Conditions:
ASM REST is used to access IP Intelligence for Security Policies.

Impact:
Reference names are inconsistent and confusing.

Workaround:
If an API client wishes to $expand the resource wanted in a way that works against all versions, the pre-expanded name can be used.

?$expand=ip-intelligence

Fix:
We corrected an inconsistent reference name.
'IpIntelligenceReference' is now 'ipIntelligenceReference'.


563232-2 : FQDN pool in resource prevents Access Policy Sync.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:

563227-3 : When a pool member goes down, persistence entries may vary among tmms

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When a pool member goes down, persistence entries may vary among tmms. The result will be that rather than persisting to a single pool member, the new connections may arrive on different pool members based on the number of tmms on the BIG-IP platform in use.

Conditions:
Using persistence with some connections persisted to a pool member that goes down, either administratively or due to a monitor. During this time, the client is issuing several new connections to the BIG-IP system.

Impact:
Inconsistent persistence entries.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The race conditions that involved dropping an offline pool member have been resolved.

562566-2 : High Availability connection flap may cause mirrored persistence entries to be retained after expiration on multi-blade systems

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Prior to expiration, the age of persistence entries is reset back to 0, thus retaining the persistence entries forever.

Conditions:
Persistence is configured on a multi-blade system, a configured High Availability peer is present, and a flap occurs on the High Availability connection between active and standby systems.

Impact:
Retention of persistence entries leads to eventual low memory conditions, performance degradation, and traffic outage or restarting of some daemons.

Workaround:
Although no reasonable workaround exists, you can clear the persistence table to reclaim leaked memory.

Fix:
Persistence entries are no longer retained beyond their expiration.

When the statistics DB variable option 'merged.method' is set to 'slow_merge' then the merging of statistics stops working. This causes statistics to no longer appear to be updated.

Conditions:
The DB variable 'merged.method' is set to 'slow_merge'.

Impact:
Statistics no longer appear to be updated.

Workaround:
1) Set "merged.method" to "fast_merge" which is the default.

-or-

2) Create the /var/tmstat/cluster directory using mkdir. Please note the directory must be created on every blade in a chassis. Additionally, this directory needs to be re-created after reboots, so something like "/bin/mkdir /var/tmstat/cluster" should be added to "/config/startup"

Fix:
Statistics are now updated as expected when the statistics DB variable option 'merged.method' is set to 'slow_merge'.


561976 : Values of high-water and low-water mark for 'apd' pending request queue might not handle requests completely.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Under heavy authentication requests from tmm with a slow or down back-end authentication server, the apd accept connection queue could get full, resulting in apd logs: AD module: authentication with '1439805563539620' failed: Too many open files.

Conditions:
- Incoming authentication request to apd (from tmm) is very high.
- Back-end authentication server is slow or down.

Impact:
Authentication failures; might bring authentication rate down to zero.

Workaround:
Adjust the value of connhwm, connlwm and soconnmax values using tmsh commands.
- To set the value to 1024, use the following command:
        sysctl -w net.core.somaxconn=1024.

- Change Low water mark first using the following command:

Symptoms:
When upgrading from 10.x to 11.x Wide IP pool member ratio value is changed from 0 to 1.

Conditions:
1. Upgrade from v10.x to v11.x through 12.0.0
2. Have a Wide IP pool member ratio set to 0.

Impact:
Wide IP pool member ratio is changed to 1 (the default) from 0 after upgrading, potentially enabling selection of members that had been "disabled" with a ratio of 0.

Workaround:
Manually change ratio back to 0 after upgrade.


561500-1 : ICAP Parsing improvement

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
If a malformed ICAP message is sent to the Big-IP the ICAP parser can enter a state where it consumes an increasing amount of CPU and memory.

Conditions:
A request-adapt or response-adapt profile is configured.
An ICAP message is received from an ICAP server lacking "ICAP/1.0" as initial header line.

Impact:
Memory and CPU usage increase.
Eventually the TMM may crash causing Big-IP fail-over.

Fix:
ICAP parser checks for correct initial ICAP/1.0 header line and rejects message if missing.


561433-3 : TMM Packets can be dropped indiscriminately while under DOS attack

Component: Advanced Firewall Manager

Symptoms:
When we have a loaded tmm which cannot consume packets fast enough, then packets could be dropped while DMAing from the HW.

Conditions:
This could happen for a variety of reasons which cause tmm to be loaded.

Impact:
Packets will be dropped indiscriminately.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
We've now added a sys db tunable (sys db dos.scrubtime) which can be set to drop DoS attack packets in HW more aggressively. This will prevent other non-attack packets from being dropped indiscriminately.


561348-4 : krb5.conf file is not synchronized between blades and not backed up

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
krb5.conf file is not in sync across all blades.
this may cause a feature (Kerberos SSO / Kerberos Auth) to not work as expected.

Conditions:
When administrator made changes to krb5.conf file manually, the configuration file is not synchronized to all blades or is lost upon upgrade.

Impact:
Kerberos Auth / Kerberos SSO does not work properly on all blades.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The APM code now automatically synchronizes the changes to /etc/krb5.conf file to all devices in the Failover Device group. Any change made to this file either in Active Device or Standby device will be automatically synced to other device.

In Chassis, all the Secondary blades will mirror the file on the Primary blade. Any manual change done on the Secondary blade(s) will be lost. The admin has to do the changes on Primary blade only and it will be synchronized with all others blades.

Behavior Change:
When admin modifies /etc/krb5.conf file, the changes are automatically updated on other devices in the same Failover Device group.

When admin modifies the /etc/krb5.conf file on the primary blade of the chassis, the changes are automatically updated on all secondary blades.

None

Fix:
FPS now encrypts all input types, including the 'hidden' type.


560685 : TMM may crash with 'tmsh show sys conn'.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Although unlikely, the 'tmsh show sys conn' command may cause the tmm process to crash when displaying connections.

Conditions:
Although the conditions under which this occurs are not well understood, this is a rarely occurring issue.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
The only workaround is to not issue the command: tmsh show sys conn.

Fix:
Running the command 'tmsh show sys conn' no longer causes TMM to crash when displaying connections.


560683-3 : HA IPSEC: tmm core/crash on standby in function ikev2_child_delete_outbound()

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
tmm crash after a number of failovers (approximately two to four).

Conditions:
This occurs in a high availability (HA) configuration with IPSEC traffic and multiple failovers. This is an intermittent issue.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The intermittent tmm crash no longer occurs in a high availability (HA) configuration with IPSEC traffic and multiple failovers.


560607-3 : Resource Limitation error when removing predefined policy which has multiple rules

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
Resource Limitation error when removing a predefined policy which has multiple rules referring to the same rating group.

Conditions:
- Gx and Gy are configured for the session
- All rules refer to the same rating group

Impact:
Unable to remove an existing policy

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Policies can be removed and updated regardless of rules or rating group limitations.


560510-6 : Invalid /etc/resolv.conf when more than one DNS servers are set and MCPD is down.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When MCPD is not in the running state, dhclient directly writes domain-name-server information into /etc/resolv.conf. If multiple domain-name-servers are given by DHCP server, they are written in the incorrect format with multiple domain-name-servers in a single line comma-separated. Each domain-name-servers entry should be written in a single line with "nameserver" prefix.

Conditions:
- MCPD is not in the running state.
 - DHCP is enabled.
 - DHCP server has provided multiple domain-name-server entries in the lease.

Impact:
Domain name resolution doesn't work.

Workaround:
Bring up MCPD which would write the resolv.conf in the correct format. Alternatively, user can manually modify /etc/resolv.conf to write multiple nameserver entry one per line.

Fix:
DHCP will now write a single nameserver per line in /etc/resolv.conf when multiple nameservers are configured in DHCP.


560423-2 : VxLAN tunnel IP address modification is not supported

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
VxLAN tunnel local and remote tunnel IP address change is not supported.

Conditions:
If a user tries to change the local and/or remote tunnel IP address, the configuration handler will fail the configuration change.

Impact:
The user must delete and recreate the VxLAN tunnel in order to change the tunnel local and/or remote address. Tunnel deletion also requires removing references to the tunnel, for example the tunnel self IP address and routes pointing to the tunnel, before the tunnel can be deleted. Those self IP addresses and routes must be re-added after recreating the tunnel with changed IP address parameters. This can be error-prone, especially if the number of tunnels is extremely large.

Workaround:
Delete existing VxLAN tunnel, and add a new tunnel with the modified tunnel IP address parameters.

Fix:
Modifying VxLAN tunnel IP addresses now works. Only tunnels that have been created with a multicast flooding type and have a multicast remote IP address are supported.


560220-1 : Missing partition and subPath fields for some objects in iControl REST

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When using iControl REST, the return output of some objects does not include the partition and subPath properties. Also the name property contains the full path instead of only the object name.

Conditions:
This occurs when running BIG-IP systems with 11.6.0 HF6 installed.

Impact:
This breaks custom scripts that rely on those properties.

Workaround:
Do not use custom scripts to gather the partition and subPath properties of objects on BIG-IP systems with 11.6.0 HF6 installed.

Workaround:
Run the following commands on the BIG-IP system:
    echo "-x" > /shared/datasync/compiler_conf/cs_fpm/OBF_FLAGS
    chattr +i /shared/datasync/compiler_conf/cs_fpm/OBF_FLAGS

Fix:
Improved performance of obfuscated javascript.


559975-5 : Changing the username or password used for HTTP monitor basic auth may break HTTP basic auth

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
HTTP basic authentication uses a base64 encoded string. When an HTTP monitor username or password is changed, the b64 string is regenerated and may become malformed.

Conditions:
When an http monitor username or password is changed, e.g. shortened, then the HTTP basic auth string may be mangled.

Impact:
An HTTP monitor may show its resource as unavailable after changing the username or password.

Workaround:
Restart big3d, or delete then recreate the monitor instead of modifying the existing monitor.

Fix:
HTTP monitors will now correctly handle a username or password change.


559973-2 : Nitrox can hang on RSA verification

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
With certain signatures, RSA verification can hang the Nitrox crypto accelerator chip. Errors in the ltm log show crit tmm[11041]: 01010260:2: Hardware Error(Co-Processor): n3-crypto2 request queue stuck

Conditions:
RSA verification with certain signatures.

Impact:
Nitrox crypto accelerator can hang.

Fix:

559939-2 : Changing hostname on host sometimes causes blade to go RED / HA TABLE offline

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If the UI System::Platform screen is used to change the hostname on a Standalone VIPRION, the non-primary blades in the chassis may temporarily report an offline state.

Conditions:
This affects only multi-blade chassis systems in Standalone mode.

Impact:
If the system is hosting vCMP guests, it may cause unexpected failovers, and interruption of traffic.

Workaround:
To change the hostname on the VIPRION, use the tmsh command:
'modify sys global-settings hostname new-host-name'.

Fix:
Changing hostname on Standalone VIPRION no longer causes the non-primary blade to go RED / HA TABLE offline.


559933-2 : tmm might leak memory on vCMP guest in SSL forward proxy

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In SSL forward proxy configuration on vCMP guest tmm might slowly leak memory when subjected to SSL Hello messages containing server name extension (SNI) that is not configured on the virtual server.

Conditions:
This occurs with the following conditions are met:
-- SSL forward proxy configuration.
-- SSL hello with SNI extension.

Impact:
tmm might leak memory

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
tmm no longer leaks leak memory on the vCMP guest in SSL forward proxy configurations.


559584-2 : tmsh list/save configuration takes a long time when config contains nested objects.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
A configuration containing a number of nested objects takes a long time to list or save. For example, the tmsh listing time for a ~2 MB config can exceed 30 seconds.

Conditions:
Following is an example of nested objects in a config. If the config contains thousands of such virtual servers, it might take longer than 30 seconds to run either of the following commands: -- tmsh list ltm virtual. -- tmsh save config.

ltm virtual vs {
    destination 10.10.10.10:http
    ip-protocol tcp
    mask 255.255.255.255
    profiles { ::: nested object
        http { }
        http_security { }
        tcp { }
    }
    source 0.0.0.0/0
    translate-address enabled
    translate-port enabled
    vs-index 26
}
.

Impact:
When commands take longer than 30 seconds to complete, iControlREST times out.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
A configuration containing a number of nested objects no longer takes a long time to list or save, so iControlREST no longer times out. Note: You might still encounter this issue in configurations that have greater than ~6000 nested objects, which is the largest number tested.


559541-2 : ICAP anti virus tests are not initiated on XML with when should

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
ICAP anti virus tests are not performed on XML with sensitive data.

Conditions:
ICAP and XML profile are configured on the policy, the ICAP configured to inspect the XML.
The XML has sensitive data configured.
The XML request contained sensitive data.
The expectation was that XML with sensitive data would initiate ICAP tests.

Impact:
Virus tests will not be enabled on this request if the only reason for testing the ICAP was the existence of the sensitive XML data.

Fix:
ICAP tests are performed on XML with sensitive data.


559382-1 : Subscriber ID type should be set to NAI over Diameter for DHCP discovered subscribers

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
CCR-I requests from PEM to PCRF contain subscriber ID type is set to 6 (UNKNOWN) for DHCP subscribers instead of NAI.

Conditions:
Occurs for DHCP discovered subscribers on a BIG-IP system that uses a PCRF for policy determination.

Impact:
Might impact the way policies are provided from the PCRF.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Subscrbier ID type is marked as NAI for DHCP discovered subscribers.


559218-2 : Iframes could be inaccessible to a parent window on a page accessed through Portal Access

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
document.write from window to iframe could silently fail, if page is accessed by FQDN, and Same Origin Policy restrictions were relaxed with assignment to a document.domain.
The code on the page will be executed without errors, but no content will appear in iframe.

Conditions:
This can occur with web applications that use heavy javascript including javascript across iFrames.

Impact:
Some content could be not displayed on a page accessed through Portal Access.

Workaround:
iRule workaround specific to a web application

Fix:
Now iFrame with empty origin inherits origin value from parent window being accessed via Portal Access in the same manner as all browsers do.


559129-3 : Update Generic Malware Signatures to detect new Dyre variant

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
The generic malware signatures aren't detecting a new Dyre variant.

Conditions:
Dyre detection.

Impact:
Systems targeted by the new Dyre variant will not receive alerts from the FPS module when attacked.

Workaround:

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Tunnel details are not shown for MAC Edge client.
Tunnel details are located in Edge client :: View details :: Connection :: Tunnel details

Conditions:
MAC Edge client and established network access connection.

Impact:
Minor. Only diagnostic information is missing, otherwise tunnel works fine.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Tunnel details are now shown for MAC Edge client.


559060-3 : AVR reads BIG-IP system's cookie incorrectly in multiple BIG-IP configuration.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
AVR presents incorrect data in the GUI statistics (for example, unexpected pool members, and so on, with hitcount 0).

Conditions:
Multiple BIG-IP systems are configured, one is acting as server for the other and both have 'collect client latency' enabled.

Impact:
Invalid data is presented in the statistics.

Workaround:
Turn off 'collect client latency' in the AVR profile on the BIG-IP system that is acting as the server.

Fix:
Correct data is now presented in the statistics of a configuration in which one BIG-IP system is acting as the server in a multiple BIG-IP device configuration.


559055-1 : Staging is not disabled on wildcard parameter "*" when Learn New Parameters is set to "Add All"

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Staging is not disabled on wildcard parameter "*" when Learn New Parameters is set to "Add All Entities".

Conditions:
Learn New Parameters is set to "Add All Entities".

Impact:
Staging on wildcard parameter "*" remains unchanged.

Workaround:
Disable staging on wildcard parameter "*" manually.

Fix:
Staging is now disabled correctly on wildcard parameter "*" when Learn New Parameters is set to "Add All Entities".


559034-1 : Mcpd core dump in the sync secondary during config sync

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
mcpd will crash if certain files are missing from the file store during sync operations.

Conditions:
This can happen when files associated with file objects are removed from the file store. Users are not permitted to directly modify the contents of the file store.

Impact:
mcpd will crash

Workaround:
Users are not permitted to directly modify the contents of the file store. Use tmsh or the Configuration Utility to manage BIG-IP objects such certificates.

Fix:
Mcpd will no longer crash during a config sync if a file store object is missing.


558946-4 : TMM may core when APM is provisioned and access profile is attached to the virtual

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
TMM may core when APM is provisioned and access profile is attached to the virtual.

Conditions:
This crash is most likely to occur when there are more than 1 ABORT events sent to a connection on a virtual with attached access profile.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Fix:
APM virtual server that can have multiple ABORTs events to a connection will no longer cause TMM to crash and restart.


558870-3 : Protected workspace does not work correctly with third party products

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
1) Internet Explorer and Firefox cannot be launched in Windows protected workspace if Norton Internet Security 22.x is present on user's machines.

Files cannot be synced to OneDrive.

Workaround:
There is no workaround.

Fix:
User can now launch Internet Explorer or Firefox inside protected workspace.


558858-4 : Unexpected loss of communication between slots of a vCMP Guest

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
1. Within the vCMP guest, the affected slot shows the other slot(s) to be offline. When logged into any other "offline" slot, the slot shows itself to be online.

2. Within the vCMP guest, on the affected slot, the log files (such as /var/log/ltm) have stopped recording log entries from the other slot(s).

3. Within the vCMP guest, on the affected slot, the eth1 interface shows TX increasing but RX not increasing. The eth1 interface on other slots shows both TX and RX increasing.

Conditions:
Only affects vCMP guests with 2 or more slots on VIPRION C2000-series chassis.

Impact:
The number of working slots in a vCMP guest is reduced to 1 slot. The effect on traffic may range from none to severe.

Workaround:
Within the vCMP guest, login to the command line (vconsole or SSH) of the affected slot and run the following:

ifconfig eth1 down ; ifconfig eth1 up

Alternatively, from the hypervisor, modify the vCMP guest to the Configured state, and wait to confirm the vCMP guest has stopped on all slots. Then return the vCMP guest to the Deployed state.

Fix:
This release no long exhibits loss of communication between slots of a vCMP Guest.


558779-6 : SNMP dot3 stats occassionally unavailable

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
SNMP would not provide values for some dot3 stats.

Conditions:
Always under affected version

Impact:
SNMP would not provide values for some dot3 stats.
This is no impact actual traffic.

Workaround:
None

Fix:
The dot3 stats are now available.


558642-1 : Cannot create the same navigation parameter in two different policies

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Cannot create the same navigation parameter in two different policies. A validation issue blocks the user from adding a navigation parameter that is already defined in a different security policy.

Conditions:
This occurs after adding navigation parameter X to one policy, and then attempting to add the same parameter to another policy.

Impact:
Cannot add navigation parameter X to another policy after adding it to the first policy.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The system now supports adding the same navigation parameter to different security policies.


558631-2 : APM Network Access VPN feature may leak memory

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
VPN connections may cause memory usage to increase with the memory never being reclaimed.

Conditions:
-- APM Network Access feature is configured.
-- VPN connections are being established.

Impact:
Slow memory leak over time with eventual out-of-memory condition, performance degradation, and traffic outage.

Workaround:
No workaround short of not using the APM Network Access feature.

Fix:
The APM Network Access VPN feature no longer leaks memory.


558612-4 : System may fail when syncookie mode is activated

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM may core when syncookie mode has been activated when under extreme memory pressure.

Conditions:
L7 VIP with certain TCP profile attributes enabled.
Syncookies have been activated.
System under memory pressure due to heavy load.

Impact:
tmm may core.

Workaround:
Use the default TCP profile for all L7 VIPs.

Fix:
The BIG-IP will not encounter a system failure when syncookie mode has been activated.


558573-2 : MCPD restart on secondary blade after updating Pool via GUI

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If you use the LTM GUI in a clustered environment to add an IP Encapsulation profile to a Pool, then click Update, mcpd and other daemons may restart on secondary blades in the cluster.

When this occurs, errors similar to the following will be logging from the secondary blades:
-- err mcpd[22537]: 01020036:3: The requested pool profile (49825) was not found.
-- err mcpd[22537]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Configuration from primary failed validation: 01020036:3: The requested pool profile (49825) was not found.

Conditions:
This problem may occur when operating BIG-IP in a clustered environment (VIPRION), and using the GUI to update the properties of an LTM pool with an IP Encapsulation profile defined.

Impact:
Daemon restarts, disruption of traffic passing on secondary blades.

Workaround:
Perform pool updates via the tmsh command-line utility.

Fix:
Pool profile update is performed by name rather than object ID, so MCPD no longer restarts on secondary blade after updating a pool using the GUI.


558534-3 : The TMM may crash if http url rewrite is used with APM

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The HTTP uri rewrite feature depends on having a client-side to determine the ip address of that client. However, APM may use the HTTP filter without having a client-side. This can cause a TMM crash when the missing ip address is used by the HTTP uri rewrite feature.

Conditions:
APM + HTTP uri rewrite feature. (This is different to the "rewrite" profile.)

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Disable the HTTP uri rewrite feature when using APM. An iRule may be used to safely implement its transformations.

Fix:
The TMM no longer crashes when the HTTP uri rewrite feature is used with APM.


558517-3 : Upgrading results in additional escaping for monitor send/recv strings in /config/bigip.conf.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Upgrading results in additional escaping for monitor send/recv strings in /config/bigip.conf.

After upgrading the bigip.conf still has the old #TMSH-VERSION header. This is behavior is an intended behavior in 12.1.0, so it is not a bug; the configuration is still loaded in memory properly. The TMSH-VERSION string will be updated the next time a save sys config command is issued.

Conditions:
This occurs only when upgrading BIG-IP software in the following situations:
-- From 11.6.0 base version, or from 11.6.0 HF1 through 11.6.0 HF5 (or any engHF built on these versions) to final :11.6.0 HF6 through 11.6.0 HF8
-- From 11.5.3 base version, or from 11.5.3 HF1 or 11.5.3 HF2 (or any engHF for these versions) to 11.5.3 HF2 engHF2 or 11.5.3 HF2 engHF45.

Impact:
Monitors send/recv strings contain extra escape characters, for example: \\r, \\n etc. Post upgrade the monitors containing escaped characters will fail.

Workaround:
Manually/by script remove the additional escaping within the send/recv strings.

Fix:
The system no longer appends extra escape characters to monitor send/receive strings after upgrading.


558255-2 : Filtering encryption alerts

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
There was no option in 11.6.0 or earlier to filter out encryption alerts.

Conditions:
Encryption is failing.

Impact:
There is always an alert sent, even if it comes from an unsupported browser.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
A new DB variable 'AntiFraud.EncryptionAlerts' has been added that controls whether or not the FPS plugin filters encryption alerts.


558053-2 : Pool's 'active_member_cnt' attribute may not be updated as expected.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
If a pool has no associated monitors, new pool members added to the pool do not increment the active_member_cnt even if traffic will be passed to it. In other cases, for FQDN pool members, the active_member_cnt does not update in user-down scenarios, or other state transitions.

Conditions:
1) Configure a pool without a monitor, and make use of an iRule that attempts to use the 'active_member_cnt' attribute.

2) Configure a pool with FQDN nodes and change the state to user-down, and check the active_member_cnt via an iRule or GUIshell.

Impact:
Although this does not impact load balancing and is not visible in the GUI or tmsh, it is exposed as a consumable attribute in iRules, which can impact your scripts.

Workaround:
member_count returns total members with no status information.

Fix:
Pool's 'active_member_cnt' attribute is now updated as expected, even for pools that have no assigned monitors.


557783-2 : TMM generated traffic to external IPv6 global-addr via ECMP routes might use link-local addr

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM might use a link-local IPv6 address when attempting to reach an external global address for traffic generated from TMM (for example, dns resolver, sideband connections, etc.).

Conditions:
- ECMP IPv6 routes to a remote destination where the next hop is a link local address. Typically this occurs with dynamic routing.
- Have configured a virtual server that generates traffic from TMM (for example, dns resolver, sideband connections, etc.).

Impact:
Traffic might fail as its egresses from a link-local address instead of a global address.

Workaround:
It might be possible to work around if the dynamic routing peer can announce the route from a global address instead of a link local.
Use of static routes might also work around the issue.

Fix:
TMM now uses the correct IPv6 global address when generating traffic to a remote address using ECMP routes via link-local next-hops.


557680-1 : Fast successive MTU changes to IPsec tunnel interface crashes TMM

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Changing IPsec tunnel interface MTU attribute repeatedly in quick succession, TMM cores. This can occur whether or not traffic has flowed through the tunnel.

Conditions:
The issue occurs when the IPsec tunnel interface attributes has its configuration modified quickly and repeatedly.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Change IPsec tunnel interface attributes at a rate of speed that allows each configuration modification to complete.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores if users quickly and repeatedly change interface attributes (for example, the MTU interface attribute).


557675-3 : Failover from PEM to PCRF can cause session lookup inconsistency

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
A small number of PEM sessions can be looked up only by their session-ip, but not by their subscriber-id.

Conditions:
Using PEM, failover to PCRF.

Impact:
Fails to find sessions needed for traffic processing.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
The code change provides an internal fixup for incorrect sessions.


557645-5 : Communication between devices in a high availability (HA) configuration might occasionally fail on VIPRION 2200 and 2400 platforms.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Communication between devices in a high availability (HA) configuration might occasionally fail on VIPRION 2200 and 2400 platforms.

Conditions:
VIPRION 2200 and 2400 platforms with more than one blade.

Multiple devices in an HA configuration.

TMM incorrectly identifies which TMM should handle host connections from an HA peer.

The host connection will be reset after the SYN retransmits are exceeded between TMM and the host process.

Impact:
Periodic reported failures in host-to-host communication. This could affect config sync, and other HA related communication.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Host communication on VIPRION 2200 and 2400 platforms behaves the same as host communication on non-VIPRION 2200 and 2400 platforms, as expected.


557358-1 : TMM SIGSEGV and crash when memory allocation fails.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM SIGSEGV and crash when memory allocation fails.

Conditions:
Although the specific conditions under which this occurs are not well understood, it appears that the issue occurs when the SSL operation detects an error and processes the connection for removal from the SSL queue. Before the connection is removed, another command attempts to remove the connection a second time, which causes the issue to occur.

Impact:
TMM SIGSEGV and crash. Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None known at this time.

Fix:
TMM SIGSEGV and crash no longer occur when memory allocation fails due to a command attempting to remove the connection for removal from the SSL queue a second time.


557281-2 : The audit_forwarder process fails to exit normally causing the process to consume CPU to near 100%

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
audit_forwarder and mcpd consume almost 100% CPU. When syslog-ng restarts it will start another audit_forwarder process, but it is the orphaned audit_forwarder process that will consume almost 100% CPU. When syslog-ng is restarted and audit_forwarder does not exit cleanly, the mcpd process will also begin consuming high CPU.

Conditions:
syslog-ng is stopped manually or sometimes (rarely) during a normal resstart of syslog-ng.

Impact:
The audit_forwarder and mcpd processes consume excessive CPU.

Workaround:
Stop audit_forwarder manually (kill -9), once the orphaned audit_forwarder process is stopped, mcpd will return to normal CPU consumption.

Fix:
When syslog-ng is stopped manually (or when expected), audit_forwarder also exits, so the audit_forward process no longer consumes increasing CPU.


557221-7 : Inbound ISP link load balancing will use pool members for only one ISP link per data center

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
In BIG-IP Link Controller and GTM 11.5.3, 11.6.0 and prior versions, and BIG-IP DNS 12.0.0, the inbound ISP link load balancing functionality uses pool members for more than one ISP link per data center.

Conditions:
Using the inbound ISP link load balancing functionality in BIG-IP Link Controller and GTM 11.5.3, 11.6.0 and prior versions, and BIG-IP DNS 12.0.0.

Impact:
If a pool has multiple members that use different ISP links within a data center, the system uses only pool members associated with the ISP link of the first available pool member. The system marks pool members associated with subsequent ISP links as unavailable (grey).

Fix:
The inbound ISP link load balancing functionality will use pool members for only one ISP link per data center for each pool.

Behavior Change:
Beginning in BIG-IP Link Controller and GTM 11.5.4, 11.6.1, and BIG-IP DNS 12.1.0, the ISP link load balancing functionality will use pool members for only one ISP link per data center for each pool.

The link that is associated with the first configured and available pool member within each data center will determine the link that will be used for the data center. The system will use only pool members associated with that link.


557144-3 : Dynamic route flapping may lead to tmm crash

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When dynamic routing is in use and routes are being actively added and removed, tmm may crash.

Conditions:
Virtual Server configured with Dynamic Routing

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Flapping dynamic routes no longer trigger a tmm crash.


557062-2 : The BIG-IP ASM configuration fails to load after an upgrade.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
A configuration load failure occurs after creating an ASM predefined report in a previous version - (11.3 or 11.4) and upgrading to a version prior to 12.1.0.

Conditions:
Define scheduled report with 'predefined-report-name: '/Common/Top alerted URLs' on version 11.3 or 11.4 upgrade the version.

Impact:
Version upgrade fails (the BIG-IP system becomes unusable).

Workaround:
Manually change predefined-report-name '/Common/Top alerted URLs' to predefined-report-name '/Common/Top alarmed URLs'.

Fix:
If an ASM predefined report was created in a previous version and the system was updated, it could have caused the configuration upgrade to fail. This failure no longer occurs.


557059-2 : When a virtual server has an Anti-Fraud Profile and a Web Acceleration profile, POST requests to non-protected URLs hang

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
A POST request to a virtual will timeout and will not immediately return a response. After a timeout occurs, an HTTP 400 response status will be returned.

Conditions:
This issue is encountered when sending a POST request to a virtual server that is configured with an Anti-Fraud Profile and a Web Acceleration profile.

Impact:
The request times out and 400 HTTP response status is returned. The application will break.

Fix:
POST requests no longer time out when sent to a virtual server that has an Anti-Fraud Profile and a Web Acceleration profile.


556597-5 : CertHelper may crash when performing Machine Cert Inspection

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:

Conditions:
APM installed

Impact:
Authentication may fail.

Fix:
Fixed crash cause in CertHelper.


556568-2 : TMM can crash with ssl persistence and fragmented ssl records

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Unusual fragmented ssl records may be handled incorrectly resulting in tmm crash.

Conditions:
Ssl persistence and fragemented ssl records.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Possibly switch to different persistence type.

Fix:
The error in parsing fragmented ssl records has been resolved.


556560-2 : DNS messages may become malformed if the Additional section contains an OPT record followed by multiple records.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
DNS messages which contain an OPT record followed by more than one record in the additional section will become malformed when they pass through a virtual with an assigned DNS profile.

Conditions:
A DNS message contains and OPT record in the Additional section, the message is compressed, and more than one record follow the OPT record.

Impact:
This issue impacts all DNS messages that contain an OPT record followed by more than one record. The DNS handling code expects a message containing an OPT record to have 0 or 1 TSIG record following the OPT record in the additional record section of a message.

The RFCs permit the OPT record to be placed anywhere in the additional record section of a DNS message, with the exception of a TSIG record. If a TSIG record is present, it must always be last. If no TSIG record is present, then an OPT record can be last.

The RFCs do not restrict a query from containing records in the additional record section of the message.

When a DNS query or response is passed through the TMM DNS message handler, and that message contains an OPT record followed by more than one record, and those records that follow the OPT record contain compression pointers to other records that also follow the OPT record, then the message becomes mangled.

Workaround:
Disable DNS compression on the resolver, or configure the resolver to place OPT records at the end of the additional section (except TSIG records which must always be last).

Fix:
DNS messages which contain a record other than TSIG following an OPT record in the additional record section will be transformed in the message handler and the message inspection will be restarted.

The transformation involves safely moving the OPT record to be last or second-to-last (in the presence of a TSIG record) position of the additional record section. 'Safely' means updating the relevant compression pointers.

The subsequent code paths which depend on the OPT record's position now work as expected.


556383-1 : Multiple NSS Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Solution Article: K31372672


556380-2 : mcpd can assert on active connection deletion

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When all of the peers in an HA / DSC configuration are removed, then it is possible for the connection tear down to result in an assert.

Conditions:
Removal of all peers while a connection is handling a transaction.

Impact:
MCPD asserts and restarts.

Workaround:
No workaround is necessary. MCPD restarts.

Fix:
Connection tear down checks for active connections and does not result in an assert when removing all peers while a connection is handling a transaction.


556284-5 : iqsyncer: GTM/LC config sync failure with error from local mcpd Monitor parent not found

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
GTM/LC config sync fails with error in /var/log/gtm and /var/log/ltm similar to the following:
Monitor /Common/my_http_monitor parent not found

Conditions:
There is a customized GTM monitor on one member of a high availability configuration, but not on others.

Impact:
Config sync fails. On the device that does not have the monitor, the system logs a parent-not-found message into /var/log/gtm.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
GTM/LC sync now completes successfully even when the configuration being sync'd contains a custom GTM/LC monitor definition.


556277-6 : Config Sync error after hotfix installation (chroot failed rsync error)

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Once an installation has been booted into, applying a hotfix over that installation does not change the SELinux policy, but instead uses the previously installed SELinux policy.

Conditions:
This affects installations of a later hotfix atop an earlier hotfix, or onto a base build of the same software version. Installation onto a new volume is unaffected.

To determine whether the configuration will experience this issue, use md5sum to see whether the following have the same checksums:
-- /etc/selinux/targeted/modules/active/modules/f5_mcpd.pp
-- /usr/share/selinux/targeted/f5_mcpd.pp.

If the checksums are the same, the system will use the SELinux policy installed with the previous hotfix, and this issue will occur.

Impact:
Sync of file objects might fail with an error similar to the following:

01071488:3: Remote transaction for device group [name] to commit id [number] failed with error 01070712:3: Caught configuration exception (0), verify_sync_result:() :Failed to sync files. - sys/validation/FileObject.cpp, line 6276..

Workaround:
Instead of installing the hotfix over an existing installation of the base build of that version (or an earlier hotfix), install the base ISO (for example 11.5.4) into a volume, and then install the hotfix onto that volume, without booting the volume in between.

Fix:
Installing a hotfix over an existing base install now rebuilds the SELinux policy as expected.


556162-3 : Default obfuscator configuration causes very slow javascript in some browsers

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
Slow javascript causes page to render with a slight delay.

Conditions:
Client on Explorer 8 on a slow machine or VM.

Impact:
Mainly on older browsers, a slight rendering delay (~1 second) may be noticed.

Workaround:
Run the following commands on the BIG-IP system:
    echo "-x" > /shared/datasync/compiler_conf/cs_fpm/OBF_FLAGS
    chattr +i /shared/datasync/compiler_conf/cs_fpm/OBF_FLAGS

Fix:
Improved performance of obfuscated javascript.


556117-2 : client-ssl profile is case-sensitive when checking server_name extension

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The client-ssl profile is Case-Sensitive when configuring server-name in the client-ssl profiles and checking server_name extension in the ClientHello Message.

Conditions:
When using mixed upper-lower case server-name in the client-ssl profile configuration and ClientHello messages.

Impact:
The system treats mixed upper-lower case server-name as different names which violate the RFC6066, which states: "Currently, the only server names supported are DNS hostnames. DNS hostnames are case-insensitive."

Workaround:
1. Configure only one client-ssl profile with same server-name.

2. Use only lower-case server-name when configure the client-ssl profile.

3. Use lower-case server-name in the Client side.

Fix:
The system now treats mixed upper-lower case server-names as the same name, so server-name is no longer case sensitive.


556103-3 : Abnormally high CPU utilization for external monitors

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
High CPU utilization for external monitors that use SSL.

Conditions:
External monitor using SSL.

Impact:
Abnormally high CPU utilization.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release improves the handling of external monitors that use SSL so that CPU utilization no longer increases.


555905-3 : sod health logging inconsistent when device removed from failover group or device trust

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When a device is in a failover group, sod logs the state change messages indicating the reachability of other devices in the group. For example:

Nov 2 11:34:54 BIGIP-1 notice sod[5716]: 010c007f:5: Receiving status updates from peer device /Common/BIGIP-3.localdomain (10.145.192.5) (Online).
Nov 2 11:31:19 BIGIP-1 notice sod[5716]: 010c007f:5: Receiving status updates from peer device /Common/BIGIP-3.localdomain (10.145.192.5) (Offline).
Nov 2 11:31:43 BIGIP-1 notice sod[5716]: 010c007e:5: Not receiving status updates from peer device /Common/BIGIP-3.localdomain (10.145.192.5) (Disconnected).

If a reachable device is removed from the failover group, no "Disconnected" message is issued, so the last reported status will be inaccurate.

When a device is part of a trust, sod logs messages indicating what unicast addresses it is monitoring on remote devices:

Nov 2 11:34:29 BIGIP-1 info sod[5716]: 010c007a:6: Added unicast failover address 10.145.192.5 port 1026 for device /Common/BIGIP-3.localdomain.

If devices are removed from the trust, sod does not log a message that those unicast addresses are no longer in use.

Conditions:
When a device is removed from a failover device group, or removed from a device trust.

Impact:
Inaccurate state reporting.

Fix:
When a device is removed from a failover device group, it is now reported as "Disconnected".

When a device is removed from the device trust, sod on the other devices correctly reports that the unicast addresses belonging to the other devices have been deleted.


555827-2 : No fallback for alerts.

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
No fallback for alerts.

Conditions:
Alerts blocked by proxy.

Impact:
Alerts do not reach alert server.

Workaround:
When alert sending fails, other methods of contacting the alert server should be tried. In some scenarios, these fallbacks are not attempted.

Fix:
Use fallback methods when primary alert fails.


555818-3 : Bait failure alerts do not give details of the cause of failure

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
Bait fail alert details are always the same.

Conditions:
Honeypot mechanism failed due to http error, clientside error, timeout, etc.

Impact:
Difficult to find cause of failures due to poor granularity of error alert

Workaround:
None

Fix:
The following details were added to the Bait Failure alert:

bf_malformed : Malformed bait response
bf_jserror : Bait checks errored
bf_timeout : Bait request timed out
bf_<status_code> : Bait response was not 200 OK. Eg bf_404
bf_unknown : Other failure


555686-5 : Copper SFPs OPT-0015 on 10000-series appliance may cause interfaces to not come up and/or show corrupted serial numbers

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Some OPT-0015 copper small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver might cause an internal bus to hang.

Conditions:
This happens only when the following conditions are met:
-- 10000-series appliances.
-- At reboot, at a restart of the bcm56xxd daemon, or when a copper SFP is enabled or disabled.
-- There is at least one copper SFP present in the appliance.
-- Interfaces are spread between hardware muxes. That means some SFPs are in ports 1.1-1.8 and other SFPs are in ports 1.9-1.16.

Impact:
Corrupted serial number information from SFPs, and fiber SFPs may not come up. Enable and disable of copper SFPs may not work.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The system now ensures that the I2C bus muxes only enable a single interface, so the issue with interfaces on Copper SFPs OPT-0015 on 10000-series appliances no longer occurs.


555507-2 : Under certain conditions, SSO plugin can overrun memory not owned by the plugin.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Under certain conditions, SSO plugin can overrun memory not owned by the plugin. Symptoms could be different based on the owner of overrun memory.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:

1. The BIG-IP system is configured and used as SAML Identity Provider.
2. Single Logout (SLO) protocol is configured on an attached SP connector.
3. At least one user executed SAML WebSSO profile.

Impact:
Symptoms might differ based on the owner of overrun memory.
Potentially, tmm could restart as a result of this issue.

Workaround:
Disable SAML SLO: remove SLO request and SLO response URLs from configuration in appropriate SAML SP connectors.

Fix:
SSO plugin no longer overruns memory not owned by the plugin, so the system supports the following configuration without memory issues:

The BIG-IP system is configured and used as a SAML Identity Provider.
Single Logout (SLO) protocol is configured on the attached Service Provider (SP) connector.
At least one user executed SAML webSSO profile.


555457-5 : Reboot is required, but not prompted after F5 Networks components have been uninstalled

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Attempt to establish a VPN connection from a Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, or Vista desktop fails if F5 Networks components have been removed previously and the desktop was not rebooted.

Typically this issue can be identified by these log records:
<snip>
DIALER, 48, \driverstatechecker.cpp, 10, dump, WAN Miniport (SSTP)
DIALER, 48, \driverstatechecker.cpp, 10, dump, WAN Miniport (SSTP)
DIALER, 48, \driverstatechecker.cpp, 10, dump, F5 Networks VPN Adapter <--- Two F5 Devices
DIALER, 48, \driverstatechecker.cpp, 10, dump, F5 Networks VPN Adapter (7) <--- Two F5 Devices
DIALER, 48, \driverstatechecker.cpp, 155, GetVPNDriverRASDeviceName, found device, F5 Networks VPN Adapter
<snip>
DIALER, 1, \urdialer.cpp, 1573, CURDialer::OnRasCallback(), RAS error (state=RASCS_OpenPort, error=633: The modem (or other connecting device) is already in use or is not configured properly.)

Conditions:
Windows desktop.
Existing F5 components uninstalled.
Reboot was not performed after uninstall.

Impact:
End users cannot establish a VPN connection from Windows-based clients.

Workaround:
Reboot the affected Windows desktop.

Fix:
After F5 Networks components have been uninstalled, the system does not require reboot, and uses the latest installed software-device for VPN, as expected.


555435-2 : AD Query fails if cross-domain option is enabled and administrator's credentials are not specified

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
AD Query fails in cross-domain environment, when AAA AD Server has no administrator credentials configured and user's logon name is different from pre-win2k name

Conditions:
- AD Query is configured in an Access Policy.
- The administrator's credentials are not specified at AAA AD Server configuration page (that is in use by AD Query).
- The domain logon name is different from pre-win2k name.

Impact:
AD Query fails

Workaround:
The administrator should provide AD administrator credentials at AAA AD Server configuration page.

Fix:
AD Query now completes as expected if cross-domain option is enabled and administrator's credentials are not specified.


555432-1 : Large configuration files may go missing on secondary blades

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
bigip.conf or other configuration files may go missing on secondary blades once the configuration exceeds a certain size (approximately 8 MB).

Conditions:
This is only relevant on chassis.

Impact:
If the primary changes, then the configuration is at risk of being lost.

Workaround:
touch the relevant configuration file (usually bigip.conf) and the configuration file will reappear.

Fix:
bigip.conf or other configuration files would go missing on secondary blades once the configuration exceeded a certain size (approximately 8 MB). This has been fixed.


555369-3 : CGNAT memory leak when non-TCP/UDP traffic directed at public addresses

Component: Carrier-Grade NAT

Symptoms:
When rejecting non-TCP/UDP inbound traffic a small amount of memory is leaked with each packet. Depending on the volume of such traffic this may be a slow or fast leak.

Conditions:
CGNAT configured with inbound connections enabled or hairpinning enabled
Non-TCP/UDP traffic with a destination in the LSN Pool address space

Impact:
TMM might eventually run out of available memory. The aggressive mode sweeper might be triggered, causing connections to be killed. Eventually TMM restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release fixes a memory leak that occurred When rejecting non-TCP/UDP inbound traffic.


555272-8 : Endpoint Security client components (OPSWAT, EPSEC) may fail to upgrade

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Previously, F5 Client components were signed using SHA1 certificate. SHA1 is now considered insecure and Windows will reject components signed using a SHA1 certificate after March 31st 2016.

To support this new requirement, F5 has changed the client component signing certificates to utilize a higher security validation algorithm.

The result of this change is that clients utilizing client components built prior to these versions:

Big-IP 12.0.0HF1 or earlier
Big-IP 11.6.0 HF8 or earlier
Big-IP 11.5.4 (base release) or earlier

cannot Endpoint Security updates build 431 or greater.

If you require updated Endpoint Security (OPSWAT / EPSEC) builds greater than 431 you must upgrade to these versions:

Big-IP 12.1.0 or later
Big-IP 12.0.0HF2 or later
Big-IP 11.6.1 or later

Big-IP 11.5.4 HF1 or later

Conditions:
Running incompatible BIG-IP version with EPSEC build 431 or later.

Impact:
User will see certificate warnings and installation of client component updates may fail. The failure may occur multiple times.

Workaround:
Upgrade BIG-IP to the correct version.

Use the BIG-IP Web GUI's Software Management :: Antivirus Check Check Updates section to install an EPSEC build prior to 431.

Fix:
Updated signing certificate to a sha256 certificate. Client components and EPSEC binaries are now signed using the new, higher security certificate. Please note that upgrade to a HF in which client is signed using updated certificate is needed to install updated EPSEC releases. Please review the information carefully.


555057-3 : ASM REST: Removing a Signature Set From One Security Policy Removes It From All Security Policies.

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
When using ASM REST to remove a signature set association from a policy (DELETE), the set is removed from all policies in the system.

Conditions:
ASM REST is used to remove a signature set association from a policy.

 DELETE /mgmt/tm/asm/policies/<ID>/signature-sets/<ID>

Impact:
All policies will lose their association to that signature set. This may leave some policies not enforcing all the Attack Signatures that they are expected to.

Workaround:
A DELETE can be issued to the collection endpoint: /mgmt/tm/asm/policies/<ID>/signature-sets utilizing the $filter parameter to delete only the desired sets.

Ex. DELETE /mgmt/tm/asm/policies/<ID>/signature-sets?$filter=id eq '<ID>'

Fix:
When using ASM REST to remove a signature set association from a policy (DELETE), the signature set association is removed only from the desired policy and not from all policies in the system.


555039-2 : VIPRION B2100: Increase egress traffic burst tolerance for dual CoS queue configuration

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
There is a high drop counts when running tmsh show net interface, and running tmctl -a drop_reason shows that a large number of drops are due to counters.rx_cosq_drop

Smaller buffering alpha values are configured for egress buffering to allow an 8 HW CoS queue feature to correctly implement weight based egress dropping. This results in busy ports dropping more aggressively, although allowing more fair buffering amongst multiple active ports.

Conditions:
Higher traffic rates, which stress switch MMU buffering resources, might result in egress CoS queue drop on busy ports.
This affects the BIG-IP 5000- and 7000 series platforms, and VIPRION B2100, B2150, and PB200 blades.

Impact:
This results in busy ports dropping more aggressively. Note that using smaller values allows more fair buffering amongst multiple active ports, whereas higher values allow better burst absorption but less fair buffering.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release uses a larger alpha value for better burst absorption when the 8 hardware CoS queue feature is not enabled.


555006-3 : ASM REST: lastUpdateMicros is not updated when changing a Custom Signature

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
The lastUpdateMicros field is meant to be updated if a user changes a custom signature, but it is not.

Conditions:
REST client is used to look at/filter the signatures collection (/mgmt/tm/asm/sigantures)

Impact:
Checking for updated signatures does not return the expected result.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
REST: The lastUpdateMicros field is now correctly updated after updating a user defined signature.


554993-2 : Profile Stats Not Updated After Standby Upgrade Followed By Failover

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
1. The current active sessions, current pending sessions, and current established sessions counts shown in commands 'tmsh show /apm profile access' and 'tmctl profile_access_stat' become zero after failover.
2. The system posts an error message to /var/log/apm:
01490559:3: 00000000: Access stats encountered error: SessionDB operation failed (ERR_NOT_FOUND).

Conditions:
This issue happens when the following conditions are met:
1. The HA configuration is running a release prior to 11.5.3 HF2, 11.6.0 HF6, or 12.0.0.
2. A standby unit is upgraded to version 11.5.3 HF2, 11.6.0 HF6, or 12.0.0.
3. Failover is triggered.

Impact:
The current active sessions, current pending sessions, and current established sessions counts of profile access stats remain zero after failover.

Workaround:
Upgrade all devices in the HA configuration to the same release and reboot them simultaneously.

Fix:
The current active sessions, current pending sessions, and current established sessions counts of profile access stats now report correctly after failover.


554967-3 : Small Client EDNS0 Limits can Sometimes Truncate DNSSEC or iRule DNS Packets

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A resolver sending a query with a small EDNS0 UDP buffer limit can lead to packet truncation. These response packets are flagged as truncated in the header, but the OPT record might be cut/missing leading some resolvers to consider the packet malformed.

Conditions:
Primarily via dynamic settings such as iRules on DNS_RESPONSE events adding new records, or DNSSEC record signing with responses over UDP.

Impact:
Some resolvers regard OPT-less truncated packets as malformed and cease follow-up requests via TCP or a larger EDNS0 UDP limit.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Truncated DNSSEC or iRule DNS packets are RFC-compliant.


554928-1 : tmm eventually crashes when classification profile is configured on the virtual

Component: Traffic Classification Engine

Symptoms:
tmm crash

Conditions:
classification profile configured on the virtual server;
many ssl/ftp/rtp/sip flows processed by the bigip

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
remove classification profile from the virtual

Fix:
Fixed after 11.6 HF6


554899-2 : MCPD core with access policy macro during config sync in HA configuration

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
In high availability config sync, the destination mcpd might crash if the user does the following steps:
1. Manually edit bigip.conf file at source to remove an access policy item (my-ap-1_mac_mymac1) that calls a macro, from the original access policy (my-ap-1) to another access policy (my-ap-2);
2. Load the modified config into running config;
3. Delete the original access policy (my-ap-1) before manually starting the config sync.

The modified source configuration is sent to the destination during the manual incremental config sync, resulting in destination mcpd logging an error message:

err mcpd[5441]: 01020036:3: The requested access_policy_name (/Common/my-ap-1) was not found.

Immediately following the error message, the destination mcpd will crash and generate a core file.

Conditions:
Config sync is manual incremental, and the user manually edits /config/bigip.conf to modify the source configuration such that an access policy item with a macrocall is removed from the original access policy to another access policy, and then the original access policy is deleted, all before the manual config sync is started.

Impact:
During config sync, the destination BIG-IP system's mcpd crashes and restarts.

Workaround:
After removing the access policy item with a macrocall from the original access policy to another access policy and loading into the source running the configuration, do not delete the original access policy. Instead, start the config sync right away.

After this first config sync is successful, delete the original access policy at the source, and then start the second config sync to finish the operation.

Fix:
MCPD no longer cores with access policy macro during config sync in high availability configuration.


554774-2 : Persist lookup across services might fail to return a matching record when multiple records exist.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Persist lookup across services might fail to return a matching record when multiple records exist.

Conditions:
Persistence profile with 'match-across-services' enabled, and the configuration contains multiple records that correspond to the same pool.

Impact:
Connection routed to unexpected pool member.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The operation now continues searching persistence records when 'match-across-services' is enabled until the operation finds a record that corresponds to the same pool.


554769-4 : CPM might crash when TCLRULE_HTTP_RESPONSE is triggered.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM might crash if CONNFLOW_FLAG_L7_POLICY is not set in the connection flow flags, but the system still tries to call Centralized Policy Matching (CPM).

Conditions:
This occurs when TCLRULE_HTTP_RESPONSE is triggered from the server-side, if the server-side does not process the policy, and the connection flow flags do not have CONNFLOW_FLAG_L7_POLICY set.

Impact:
TMM/(CPM Module) might crash.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The system now adds the flag check of CONNFLOW_FLAG_L7_POLICY if it is not already set, so there is no crash in TMM or Centralized Policy Matching (CPM).


554761-5 : Unexpected handling of TCP timestamps under syncookie protection.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The BIG-IP system experiences intermittent packet drops.

Despite being negotiated during TCP handshake, the BIG-IP system fails to present timestamp option in subsequent segments.

The BIG-IP system calculates invalid round trip time immediately after handshake, which might result in delayed retransmissions.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
- Virtual server configured with a TCP profile with timestamps enabled.

- The syncookie mode has been activated.

- Clients that support timestamps.

Impact:
Connection might be reset by remote TCP stack (e.g., NetBSD and FreeBSD), which requires timestamps to be maintained once negotiated.

Retransmission timeout (RTO) value may be skewed. Segments that are subject to RTO might take up to 64 segments to retransmit.

Workaround:
Choose or create a TCP profile that has timestamps disabled.

Fix:
TCP Timestamps are now maintained on all negotiated flows.


554690-3 : VPN Server Module generates repeated Error Log "iface eth0 "... every 2 secs

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Chatty log messages seen in svpn.log file

Conditions:
Establish tunnel server and check svpn.log file (VPN server module) to see verbose logs

Impact:
Verbose logging having a general CPU and disk write impact.

Fix:
VPN Server Module doesn't generate repeated Error Log "iface eth0 (4)" every 2 secs


554626-1 : Database logging truncates log values greater than 1024

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
The Logging agent truncates log values greater than 1024. If the log value size is greater than 4060, the field is empty or null.

Conditions:
Logging into local database with log values (such as session variables) greater than 1024. If this size is too high (greater than 4060), the field displays as empty or null in reports.

Impact:
The reporting UI displays null or empty fields when the logged value is too large in size, such as a huge session variable.

Workaround:
No workaround.

Fix:
This release handles large single log values.


554624-2 : NTP CVE-2015-5300 CVE-2015-7704

Vulnerability Solution Article: K10600056 K17566


554609-4 : Kernel panics during boot when RAM spans multiple NUMA nodes.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) crashes in the kernel during early boot.

Conditions:
This occurs when the following conditions are met:
* VE is running on Hyper-V.
* VE RAM is configured in a such a way that it spans multiple NUMA nodes.

Impact:
Kernel panic during boot.

Workaround:
No workaround.

Fix:
The kernel now properly aligns memory on multiple NUMA nodes, so there is no kernel panic during boot.


554563-3 : Error: Egress CoS queue packet drop counted against both Drops In and Drops Out statistics.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Class of Service Queues (cosq) egress drop statistics are counted against both Drops In and Drops Out interface statistics.

Conditions:
This occurs for all cosq drops in response to excess egress traffic and MMU egress congestion.

Impact:
Any CoS queue egress drop is also counted against ingress drop stats, which could be interpreted incorrectly as doubled total drop stats.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The Drops In interface statistics no longer includes Class of Service Queues (cosq) egress drop counts, which is correct behavior.


554546-2 : Only first entry in 'Mandatory Words' list is effective

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
Despite adding two or more 'Mandatory Words' items, alerts are only sent on the first item.

Conditions:
Multiple 'Mandatory Words' items are configured. One of the items (not the top item) is injected into page.

Impact:
No 'Mandatory Words' alert sent (False negative).

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The entire 'Mandatory Words' list is now checked.


554540 : RAT detection failure

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
When flash cookies are disabled, RAT detection fails.

Conditions:
Flash cookies disabled.

Impact:
RAT attacks are not reported to the alert server.

Workaround:
Enable flash cookie.

Fix:
RAT detection now works with regular cookies.


554537-2 : Failed alerts on Internet Explorer

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
Sending page data in alerts can cause alerts to fail.

Conditions:
This occurs under the following conditions:
-- 'attach HTML to alerts' enabled.
-- Alert is sent from a large HTML page.

Impact:
Missed alerts

Workaround:
Disable 'attach HTML to alerts'.

Fix:
If page data overwhelms alert sending, only partial page data is sent, so the alert now completes as expected.


554458 : No Session Variables displayed when click on "View Session Variables" link in APM "All Sessions" reports with reduced zeros in Session ID

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
No Session Variables displayed when click on "View Session Variables" link in APM "All Sessions" reports

Conditions:
When Session ID has 1 or more leading zero

Impact:
Empty in the APM Session Variable report

Workaround:
Run "Session Variables" report. When enter session ID, prepend 0s if the session ID has less 8 chars. The total length of session ID is 8 chars.

Fix:
Session Variables report shows correctly.


554367-1 : BIG-IQ ASM remote logger: Requests are not be logged.

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
BIG-IQ ASM does not log requests for the first remote logger configured on the system.

Conditions:
No remote logger has been previously configured for ASM.

Impact:
No requests are sent to remote logger that was just configured.

Workaround:
This issue resolves itself after a few seconds when the remote destination is responsive.

Fix:
An issue with requests not being logged after configuring a new remote logger for BIG-IQ ASM has been fixed.


554340-4 : IPsec tunnels fail when connection.vlankeyed db variable is disabled

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When connection.vlankeyed db variable is disabled, if the data traffic coming out of IKEv1 tunnels that needs to be secured using IKEv2 tunnels lands on tmm's other than tmm0, it will be dropped. The system establishes the IKEv2 tunnel but the data traffic will not be secured.

Conditions:
This issue is seen when the interesting data traffic lands on tmm's other than tmm0. The reason for this issue is due to incorrectly creating a flow on another TMM that is the owner of the outbound SA (IKEv2 tunnel).

Impact:
The system drops the data traffic to be secured using IPsec and connections fail.

Workaround:
Disable the cmp in the virtual server configuration.

Fix:
Flow creation at the TMM that owns the outbound SA for the IKEv2 tunnel is properly handled. TMM can handle the inner traffic from IKEv1 tunnel and secure it over another IKEv2 tunnel.


554324-1 : Signatures cannot be updated after Signature Systems have become corrupted in database

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Signatures cannot be updated after signature systems have become corrupted in the configuration database.

Conditions:
Signature systems are corrupted in configuration database. This can occur after upgrading to v11.6.0, v11.6.1, or v12.0.0.

Impact:
Signatures cannot be updated.

Workaround:
Delete signature systems with an ID greater than 38, and re-add them by performing a signature update. You can delete these signature systems by running the following command:

mysql -u root -p$(perl -MPassCrypt -nle 'print PassCrypt::decrypt_password($_)' /var/db/mysqlpw) -e "DELETE FROM PLC.NEGSIG_SYSTEMS WHERE system_group = ''"

Fix:
Signature System data corruption is corrected upon upgrade, and Signatures can be subsequently upgraded.


554295-3 : CMP disabled flows are not properly mirrored

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A client connection to a virtual server configured for 'cmp-enabled no' and 'mirror enabled' will be dropped if the standby unit is promoted to active.

Conditions:
The virtual server is configured for 'cmp-enabled no' and 'mirror enabled' on multiple BIG-IP appliances peered in a high availability configuration.

Impact:
Mirroring does not work as expected on BIG-IP appliances.

Note: CMP is required on VIPRION chassis, so this expectation applies only to appliances.

Workaround:
Do not disable CMP on virtual servers that are mirrored.

Fix:
The system now supports mirroring connections between BIG-IP appliances in a high availability configuration on CMP-disabled virtual servers.

Note: If CMP is disabled, hardware syn cookie must also be disabled for virtual servers to mirror connections. This is expected behavior.


554228-5 : OneConnect does not work when WEBSSO is enabled/configured.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
OneConnect is a feature that reuses server-side connections. When WEBSSO is enabled, it always creates a new server-side connection, and doesn't reuse pooled connections.

Conditions:
WEBSSO and OneConnect.

Impact:
Idle serverside connections that should be eligible for reuse by the virtual server are not used. This might lead to build-up of idle serverside connections, and may result in unexpected 'Inet port exhaustion' errors.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
OneConnect now works when WEBSSO is enabled/configured, so that the system reuses the pooled server side connections.


554041-5 : No connectivity inside enterprise network for "Always Connected" client if Network Location Awareness is enabled

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
BIG-IP Edge Client loses all connectivity and an option to establish VPN is not available.

Conditions:
All of the following conditions must apply.
1) Edge Client is installed in "Always Connected" mode.
2) The Connectivity profile on server has location DNS list entries.
3) One of the DNS locations matches the DNS suffix set on the local network adapter.

Impact:
Client shows "LAN Detected" in the UI and does not try to connect to VPN.
All traffic to and from the user's machine is blocked.

Workaround:
This issue has no workaround at this time.

Fix:
Edge Client now ignores DNS location settings in Always Connected mode and establishes VPN even inside enterprise networks.


553976-1 : AJAX File uploads don't work in IE (import policy doesn't work)

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
You cannot import policies either XML or binary through the webui, but tmsh import works. When using the GUI you select the file and it gets stuck on "verifying".

The issue occurs only in when uploading using Internet Explorer.

Conditions:
Attempting to upload a policy using Internet Explorer.

Impact:
You cannot import any policy from the GUI.

Workaround:
Other browsers such as FireFox or Chrome work.

Fix:
You can now import policies (XML and binary) using the Configuration utility in addition to the command line.


553902-2 : Multiple NTP Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Solution Article: K17516


553795-4 : Differing certificate/key after successful config-sync

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
1) If you change a client-ssl profile to a different certificate/key, delete the original certificate/key, create a new certificate/key with the same name as the original one, associate the new certificate/key with the original client-ssl profile, then do a config-sync, the peer system(s)' FIPS chip will retain a copy of the original key.

2) If you change a client-ssl profile to a different certificate/key, delete the original certificate/key, create a new certificate/key with a different name from the original one, associate the new certificate/key with the original client-ssl profile, then do a config-sync, the peer's client-ssl profile will still use the original certificate/key instead of the new one.

Conditions:
1) High Availability failover systems with FIPS configured with Manual Sync.

2) High Availability failover systems configured with Manual Sync.

Impact:
1) An abandoned FIPS key is left behind.

2) The systems claim to be synced, but one system's client-ssl profile uses one certificate/key pair, while the other system(s)' same client-ssl profile uses a different certificate/key pair.

Workaround:
1) Workaround #1: Run an extra config-sync before the second change of the client-ssl profile.
   Workaround #2: Delete the FIPS key by-handle on the peer system(s).

2) Workaround #1: Run an extra config-sync before the second change of the client-ssl profile.
   Workaround #2: Manually update the client-ssl profile then delete the old certificate/key on the peer system(s).

Fix:
Systems now have the same certificate/key after successful config-sync of High Availability configurations.


553735-3 : TMM core on HTTP response with steering action .

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
TMM process will crash.

Conditions:
HTTP profile is not attached to a PEM virtual receiving the HTTP response. In this case on receiving a connection request from the client, BIGIP establishes server side connection without waiting for the HTTP request from the client. Meanwhile, a steering policy got installed. The server responds with HTTP request time out message and TMM cores trying to steer the existing connection.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Attaching an HTTP profile to the PEM virtual in question will avoid this issue.

Fix:
Issue has been fixed.


553734-1 : Issue with assignment of non-string value to Form.action in javascript.

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Exception in javascript code.

Conditions:
Attempt to assign non-string value to a Form.action in javascript code.

Impact:
Web application misfunction.

Workaround:
There is no workaround at this time.

Fix:
The issue is fixed for non string value types.


553688-4 : TMM can core due to memory corruption when using SPDY profile.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM corefiles containing memory corruption within 112-byte memory cache.

Conditions:
Virtual server using a SPDY profile encounters an internal error while processing a SPDY packet.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release contains a fix that prevents a double free on error within the SPDY component.


553649-3 : The SNMP daemon might lock up and fail to respond to SNMP requests.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The SNMP daemon might lock up and fail to respond to SNMP requests.

Conditions:
If the SNMP configuration on the BIG-IP changes and the SNMP daemon restarts. This is a timing issue that might appear intermittently.

Impact:
The BIG-IP system stops responding to SNMP requests. You then cannot monitor the BIG-IP system via SNMP.

Workaround:
If the SNMP daemon is locked up, restart it by issuing the following command: bigstart restart snmpd.

Fix:
The SNMP daemon no longer locks up and become unresponsive when it is restarted.


553613-3 : FQDN nodes do not support session user-disable

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
FQDN nodes do not support session user-disable.

Conditions:
Configure a monitor with recv-disable string, and set node to session user-disabled. Monitor does not mark the node down for draining persistent connections.

Impact:
Unable to use session drain.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
FQDN nodes now support session user-disable


553576-3 : Intermittent 'zero millivolt' reading from FND-850 PSU

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
In rare instances, certain BIG-IP platforms may erroneously generate power supply error messages that indicate zero milli-voltage.
Specific symptoms include:
- SNMP alert 'bigipSystemCheckAlertMilliVoltageLow' detected.
- Front panel Alarm LED is blinking amber.
- Errors such as the following are logged:
emerg system_check[<#>]: 010d0017:0: Power supply #<x> meas. main outpu: milli-voltage (0) is too low.
[where <x> is the power supply location (either 1 or 2)]
- Errors such as the following may also be logged:
-- err chmand[<#>]: 012a0003:3: Sensor read fault for Power supply #<x> meas. main outpu : File sensor/LopSensSvc.cpp Line 1453.
-- notice chmand[<#>]: 012a0005:5: reinitialize tmstat sensors (num sensors:<#>).
-- notice chmand[<#>]: 012a0005:5: reinitialize tmstat sensors (num sensors:<#>).

Note that this condition may affect either PSU 1 or PSU 2.

Conditions:
This may occur intermittently on BIG-IP 10000-/12000-series appliances (including 10000s/10200v, 10050s/10250v, 10055/10255, 10350v and 12250v models) with FND850 model DC power supplies.

Impact:
There is no impact; these error messages are benign.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Resolved intermittent erroneous "zero millivolt" reading from FND-850 PSU on BIG-IP 10000-/12000-series appliances.

553330-3 : Unable to create a new document with SharePoint 2010

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
VPN users are unable to create a new document with SharePoint 2010

An error is given: "The Internet address https://ip:port/shared documents/forms/template.dotx" is not valid

Conditions:
Create a new document using the"New Document button".

Impact:
User cannot create a new document with SharePoint 2010.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
You can create a new document with Microsoft SharePoint 2010.


553174-4 : Unable to query admin IP via SNMP on VCMP guest

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The admin IP address is not returned via ipAdEntAddr.

Conditions:
Query admin IP via SNMP on VCMP guest via ipAdEntAddr.

Impact:
Unable to obtain admin IP address via SNMP for VCMP guests.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
ipAdEntAddr will now return the admin IP address on a VCMP guest.


553146-2 : BD memory leak

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
BD memory increases. May reach a kernel 'OOM killer' scenario.

Conditions:
Usually a policy with missing content profiles (XML, etc.) on a post request that causes the POST to be parsed incorrectly and issue many parameter violations.

Impact:
High memory consumption on the system, swap memory usage, potential crashes.

Workaround:
Apply the correct content profiles.

Note: Valid requests typically do not have that many parameters in them. If you have requests that do, apply the 'apply value signature' on those big POSTs.

Fix:
This release fixes a memory leak in the Enforcer.


553063-1 : Epsec version rolls back to previous version on a reboot

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
If administrator has installed multiple EPSEC packages, after a reboot the EPSEC version rolls back to the previously installed version.

Conditions:
The BIG-IP system needs to be rebooted for this issue to be seen, and multiple EPSEC packages must have been installed on the system before the reboot.

Impact:
OPSWAT version rolls back without prompting or logging. This might open up the end-point security issues that are supposed to be fixed by the latest installed OPSWAT package.

Workaround:
The workaround is to upload a dummy file in Sandbox.
1. Go to Access Policy :: Hosted Content :: Manage Files.
2. Upload any dummy file, even a 0 byte file. Change the security level to 'session'.

After this change, even if you reboot or shutdown-restart, the EPSEC version does not revert.

Fix:
The most recently installed EPSEC version now remains configured, and does not roll back after reboot or shutdown-restart.


552937-1 : HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect in a non-HTTP iRule event can cause the next pipelined request to fail.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
An iRule that calls HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect in a non-HTTP iRule event can cause the TMM to core on the next pipelined request.

Conditions:
HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect used in a non-HTTP iRule event. A pipelined request follows the request that triggers the iRule response.

Impact:
TMM core.

Workaround:
Add the close header to the HTTP::response, and the connection will be automatically closed.

Fix:
The TMM will no longer core due to not being able to handle the next pipelined request after a HTTP::respond or HTTP::redirect is used in a non-HTTP iRule event.


552931-4 : Configuration fails to load if DNS Express Zone name contains an underscore

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A configuration with a DNS Express Zone with an underscore in the name does not load, even though the gtm global-settings general domain-name-check is set to any of allow-underscore, svn-compatible, or none.

Conditions:
-- Configuration setting gtm global-settings general domain-name-check is set to any of allow-underscore, svn-compatible, or none.
-- DNS Express Zone exists with an underscore in the name.

Impact:
Cannot load the LTM configuration when restarting BIG-IP system when DNS Express Zones that have an underscore character in the name.

Workaround:
Force the GTM configuration to load by sequentially running the following commands:
tmsh load sys config gtm-only.
tmsh load sys config.

Fix:
All FQDNs may now contain underscore character. The BIG-IP system now correctly load configurations that contain DNS Express Zones with underscores in the name.


552865-4 : SSL client authentication should ignore invalid signed Certificate Verify message when PCM is set to 'request'.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When peer certificate mode (PCM) is set to request, and the BIG-IP system client-ssl asks for the client certificate, handshake might fail if the client sends an invalid signed Certificate Verify message.

Conditions:
When SSL client certificate mode is request, and the client sends an invalid signed Certificate Verify message to the BIG-IP system.

Impact:
The handshake does not ignore the invalid signed certificate verify message, and handshake might fail. SSL client authentication should ignore invalid signed Certificate Verify message when PCM is set to 'request'. Regardless of whether the Certificate and Certificate Verify message is valid, the handshake should ignore the Certificate Verify signature error and let the handshake continue.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
When peer certificate mode (PCM) is set to request, and the BIG-IP system client-ssl asks for the client certificate, the handshake now ignores the Certificate Verify signature error and lets the handshake continue. This is correct behavior.


552585-3 : AAA pool member creation sets the port to 0.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When the AAA server pool member is created (for Radius mode BOTH and for AD), the port is set to 0 (Any) as there are more than one ports for that pool member.

Conditions:
Create AAA pool member while creating an AAA RADIUS server or Active Directory server. The created pool member does not support the ability of having multiple port numbers and for that reason is updated with 0 (Any) as the port number for the pool member. If the user continues to modify using the Admin UI, the port changes made using tmsh will be overwritten again to 0.

Impact:
AAA pool member port is set to 0 (Any) rather than the port specified in the GUI. This is correct as the pool member does not support more and 1 port number.


552498-1 : APMD basic authentication cookie domains are not processed correctly

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
401 responses containing Set-Cookie headers might not be processed correctly. Domains that begin with a dot will be truncated and the cookies will not be sent to pool members.

Conditions:
An access policy needs to use Basic or NTLM authentication and one or more of the 401 responses must contain Set-Cookie headers. If a domain is specified and the domain begins with a dot, it will not be processed correctly.

Impact:
Cookies assigned during the authentication handshake might not be sent to pool members.

Workaround:
An iRule can be used to process the 401 responses and remove any leading dots from domain fields of Set-Cookie headers.

Fix:
Domain fields in Set-Cookie headers found in 401 responses are processed correctly.


552488-1 : Missing upgrade support for AFM Network DoS reports.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
When upgrading, the statistics of AFM Network DoS reports are not migrated correctly to the new version, leading to loss of data about the Client-IP addresses.

Conditions:
Upgrade from versions 11.4.x or 11.5.x to versions 11.6.x or 12.0.0.

Impact:
The IP Addresses information of AFM Network DoS is lost. However, new activity is collected correctly.

Workaround:
There is no workaround for this issue.

Fix:
This release provides upgrade support for AFM Network DoS reports.


552481 : Disk provisioning error after restarting ASM service.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Disk provisioning error after restarting ASM service.
In newer BIG-IP software versions ASM uses a different application volume name. Older BIG-IP software versions identify the application volume as being owned by ASM, and allows ASM to be provisioned and start. However, in the older versions, ASM create the application volume so there will be two ASM application volumes. If ASM is restarted with bigstart or tmsh, or if the BIG-IP system is rebooted, provisioning does not allow ASM to start.

Conditions:
ASM provisioned on both pre-v12.0.0 and post-v12.0.0 versions.

Impact:
ASM does not start, and bigstart status asm indicates a disk provisioning error.

Workaround:
Follow these steps:
1. Boot into the affected version of BIG-IP software.
2. If DoS profiles are applied, they need to be removed from the virtual servers before the provisioning can be carried out. i.e:
# tmsh modify ltm virtual all profiles delete { DoS-A-profile }
# tmsh modify ltm virtual all profiles delete { DoS-B-profile }
.....
3. Run the command: tmsh modify sys provision asm level none.
4. Wait for unprovision to complete (do so by monitoring /var/log/asm).
5. Run the command: tmsh delete sys disk application-volume asmdata1.
6. Run the command: tmsh modify sys provision asm level nominal

Fix:
ASM starts successfully with no disk provisioning error after restarting ASM service using newer BIG-IP software.


552476-2 : Use of JavaScript's 'eval' function may be prohibited by site's content security policy

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
Websafe JavaScript does not run on sites that prohibit the use of 'eval' by using CSP headers.

Conditions:
CSP headers present that do not allow 'unsafe-eval'.

Impact:
Websafe JavaScript does not run and false positive 'component check' alerts are received in the dashboard.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Websafe JavaScript now runs as expected, so no false positive 'component check' alerts are received in the dashboard.


552352-2 : tmsh list display incorrectly for default values of gtm listener translate-address/translate-port

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
tmsh list displays incorrectly for default values of GTM listener translate-address/translate-port settings.

Conditions:
Using the tmsh list command to show translate-address/translate-port for GTM listener.

Impact:
tmsh list gtm listener does not display 'translate-address'/'translate-port' when it is set to enabled, but the command does show the values when it is set to disabled. The tmsh list gtm listener command should not show the default settings. This becomes an issue when used with the TMSH merge command, where the value gets set to the LTM virtual server default instead of maintained as the GTM Listener default. This might eventually result in failing traffic.

Workaround:
Use tmsh list with 'all-properties' instead.

Fix:
GTM Listener's translate-address and translate-port field are now always displayed in TMSH commands. This is because there are different defaults in GTM Listeners than the LTM virtual servers. When used with the TMSH merge command, the value gets set to the LTM virtual server default instead of maintained as the GTM Listener default. By always displaying this attribute, no matter what the value is, the merge will always be handled appropriately.


552198-5 : APM App Tunnel/AM iSession Connection Memory Leak

Component: Wan Optimization Manager

Symptoms:
A memory leak occurs when APM application tunnels or AM iSession connections are aborted while waiting to be reused.

Conditions:
The iSession profile reuse-connection attribute is true.
A large number of iSession connections are aborted while waiting to be reused.

Impact:
Available memory might be significantly reduced when a large number of iSession connections waiting to be reused are aborted.

Workaround:
Disable the iSession profile reuse-connection attribute. Restart TMM.

Fix:
This release fixes an APM App Tunnel/AM iSession connection memory leak.


552151-2 : Continuous error report in /dev/log/ltm: Device error: n3-compress0 Nitrox 3, Hang Detected

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Hardware compression slowly and progressively fails to handle compression operations. The system posts the following errors in ltm.log: crit tmm3[14130]: 01010025:2: Device error: n3-compress0 Nitrox 3.

Conditions:
This occurs when the system encounters errors during hardware compression handling. This occurs on the BIG-IP 5000-, 7000-, 10000-, and 12000-series platforms, and on VIPRION B22xx blades.

Impact:
Compression is (eventually) performed by software. This can result in high CPU utilization.

Workaround:
Disable compression if CPU usage is too high.

Fix:
Improved the device exception handling so that errors are correctly propagated to compression clients, thus preventing the progressive failure of the compression engine, and stopping the offload to software compression (which was driving up the CPU).


552139-2 : ASM limitation in the pattern matching matrix builtup

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
The signature configuration is not building up upon adding new signatures. This can look like a configuration change is not finishing, or if it does, it may result in crashes when the Enforcer starts up resulting in constant startups.

Conditions:
Too many signatures are configured with custom signatures. The exact number varies (depending on the signature) but hundreds of signatures may be enough to trigger it.

Impact:
Configuration change doesn't finish or crashes in the ASM startup (which results in constant startups of the system).

Workaround:
Workarounds are possible only in a custom signature scenario, only using fewer signatures or by removing unused signatures.

Fix:
Fixed a limitation in the attack signature engine.


551999-2 : Edge client needs to re-authenticate after lost network connectivity is restored

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
BIG-IP Edge Client restarts executing access policy after lost connectivity is restored. Usually that means Edge client will try to re-authenticate (if access policy is configured so) after lost network connectivity is restored.

Conditions:
Edge Client for Mac, APM with access policy with authentication configured.

Impact:
User needs to input credentials again.

Workaround:
Access policy can have "Save password" option enabled. In this case Edge Client caches the password based on password caching policy in connectivity profile and will not ask for password if cache is still valid.

Fix:
Edge Client for Mac now tries to restore session after lost network connectivity is restored.


551927-2 : ePVA snoop header's transform vlan should be set properly under asymmetric routing condition

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
On ePVA capable platform with fastl4 profile and asymetric routing on client side, ltm sends packets to the client with wrong vlan/correct mac address (or correct vlan and wrong mac-address) and undecremented ttl.

Conditions:
fastl4 profile and asymetric routing on client side

Impact:
Return traffic could use the wrong vlan

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Use the nexthop VLAN for ePVA transformation for offloaded flow when available, instead of the incoming VLAN


551893-2 : Alerts send from FPS plugin via HSL are sent in a malformed HTTP format

Component: Fraud Protection Services

Symptoms:
FPS alerts end with \r\n\r\n, HSL adds an extra \n.

Conditions:
FPS plugin send an alert via HSL.

Impact:
Alerts sent by FPS plugin via HSL are in malformed format with extra \n at the end.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
One hard-coded \n was removed from the end of the FPS alerts format, so that they now end with \r\n\r. When alerts are sent via HSL, an extra \n is added and the final alert format is correct (\r\n\r\n).


551767-3 : GTM server 'Virtual Server Score' not showing correctly in TMSH stats

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
GTM server 'Virtual Server Score' is not showing correct values in TMSH stats. Instead, stats shows zero value.

Conditions:
You have a virtual server configured with a non-zero score.

Impact:
tmsh show gtm server server-name detail lists 'Virtual Server Score' as zero. Note that there is no impact to actual load balancing decisions. Those decisions take into account the configured score. This is an issue only with showing the correct information and stats.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
TMSH now shows the correct value for 'Virtual Server Score' when you have a virtual server configured with a non-zero score.


551764-3 : [APM] HTTP status 500 response of successful Access Policy in clientless mode on chassis platform

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Successful execution of an Access Policy will result in the client receiving a HTTP status 500 error response when clientless mode is set. This error response is generated by APMD. This is a regression condition that occurs when the fix for bug 374067 is included.

Conditions:
-- The system has the fix for bug 374067.
-- Clientless mode is enabled.
-- BIG-IP platform is chassis platform.
-- The administrator does not override the Access Policy response with iRule command.

Impact:
Client receives an invalid response.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Upon successful execution of the Access Policy in clientless mode, the request is forwarded to the configured backend as needed.


551742-2 : Hardware parity error mitigation for the SOURCE_VP table on 10000s/10200v/10250v platforms and B4300/B4340N and B2250 blades

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
In rare occurrences, BIG-IP hardware is susceptible to parity errors due to unknown source. This bug mitigates parity errors that occur in the SOURCE_VP table of the switch hardware, indicated with the following message in the ltm log:

Sep 15 12:12:12 info bcm56xxd[8066]: 012c0016:6: _soc_xgs3_mem_dma: SOURCE_VP.ipipe0 failed(NAK)

Conditions:
This occurs only on the BIG-IP 10000s/10200v/10250v platforms, and on the VIPRION B4300/B4340N and B2250 blades. The exact trigger of the parity error is unknown at this time.

Impact:
This impacts several series of BIG-IP products with hardware parity error mitigation capabilities.

Workaround:
Rebooting BIG-IP hardware should clear issues caused by hardware parity errors.

Fix:
A hardware parity error issue has been fixed.


551661-2 : Monitor with send/receive string containing double-quote may fail to load.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When a monitor string contains contains \" (backslash double-quote) but does not contain a character that requires quoting, one level of escaping is lost at each save/load.

Note: Re-loading a config happens during licensing. If you decide to upgrade, first verify that you have an escaped quote in the monitor string. If you do, remove the re-licensing step from your MOP (Method of Procedure). The failure message for reloading the license with an escaped quote appears similar to the following example:

Monitor monitor_1 parameter contains unescaped " escape with backslash.

Conditions:
If the string contains \" (backslash double-quote) but does not contain one of the following characters: ' (single quote), | (pipe), { (open brace), } (close brace), ; (semicolon), # (hashtag), literal newline, or literal space.

Impact:
Monitors are marked down due to expected string not matching or incorrect send string. Potential load failure.

Workaround:
You can use either of the following workarounds:
-- Modify the content the BIG-IP system retrieves from the web server for the purposes of health monitoring, so that double quotes are not necessary.
-- Use an external monitor instead.

Fix:
If the monitor send-recv strings contain a double-quote ", character, the system now adds quotes to the input.

If a configuration contains '/"', does not reload the license before upgrade.


551614-2 : MTU Updates should erase all congestion metrics entries

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
MTU updates erase cwnd cache entries, but not ssthresh or RTT, while an MTU update generally indicates a path change, meaning that these values might be invalid.

Conditions:
TCP cached congestion metrics from a previous connection, and subsequently receives an ICMP PMTU message.

Impact:
Connection might use invalid congestion metrics.

Workaround:
Disable cmetrics-cache, accept the suboptimal cached values, or write an iRule to purge the entry after path change.

Fix:
MTU updates now erase all congestion metrics entries, which is correct behavior.


551612 : BIG-IP SSL does not support sending multiple certificate verification requests to the hardware accelerator at the same time in 11.6.0.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When SSL sends multiple certificate verification requests at the same time, the handshake is disconnected with 'bad certificate'.

Conditions:
SSL simultaneously sends multiple certificate verification requests.

Impact:
BIG-IP SSL does not support this case and the SSL handshake is disconnected with "bad certificate".

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
BIG-IP SSL now supports sending multiple certificate verification requests at the same time.


551481-3 : 'tmsh show net cmetrics' reports bandwidth = 0

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
'tmsh show net cmetrics' reports bandwidth = 0

Conditions:
tcp profile enables cmetrics-cache.
connection involves at least 4 rtt updates.

Impact:
User cannot view cmetrics data.

Workaround:
For 12.0.0 and later, you can get this data using the ROUTE::bandwidth iRule. For earlier versions, there is no workaround.

Fix:
Properly compute bandwidth with the formula cwnd/rtt.


551454-5 : Edge client sends repeated HTTP probe to captive portal probe URL for mis-configured server

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Edge client sends repeated HTTP probe to captive portal probe URL for mis-configured server. This has no functional impact on end user.

Conditions:
End user specifies incorrect VPN server URL in edge client

Impact:
None. This has no functional impact on end user.

Workaround:
Specify correct server URL in edge client

Fix:
No Edge client caches results of probe query reducing number of queries sent to probe URL.


551303-3 : TMM may core during processing of a CCA-T.

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
TMM may core during processing of a CCA-T.

Conditions:
For every session there is Gx context and Main session Context. There are always stitched to same processing unit to have synchronous look ups when a flow arrives for the session. These contexts are mirrored on a different blades for high availability (HA).

The issue occurs when the following events happen.
1. Main session moveds to a new processing unit (Failover) trigger.
2. This session is marked for deletion by RAR from PCRF or RADIUS Stop.
3. Session delete is initiated from main session by sending a local message.
4. Gx context has not yet moved to this processing unit.
5. CCR-T was sent for this session after asynchronous lookup for the Gx context and we freed the local message. This is the bug. (See explanation below)
6. Gx context moved
7. PCRF sends CCA-T came back and tried to look up local message queued to acknowledge to main session.
8. Local message was deleted at step 5 and TMM cored.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release prevents freeing of the Gx context when a CCR-T is sent out even if the Gx session is remote (present on another tmm), which prevents the TMM core.


551287-4 : Multiple LibTIFF vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Solution Article: K16715


551260-2 : When SAML IdP-Connector Single Sign On Service URL contains ampersand, redirect URL may be truncated

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
When BIG-IP is used as SAML Service Provider, and IdP-Connectors Single Sign On Service URL contains ampersand (&),
part of the URL may be truncated when user is redirected to IdP for authentication.

Conditions:
All conditions must be true:
- BIG-IP is used as SAML Service Provider
- Single Sign On Service URL property of IdP connector contains ampersand, e.g. https://idp.f5.com/saml/idp/profile/redirectorpost/sso?a=b&foo=bar
- User performs SP initiated SSO

Impact:
The query part of the redirect URL after ampersand will be lost when user is redirected to SSO URL with Authentication Request.

Fix:
Redirect URL is no longer truncated after ampersand sign.


551208-1 : Nokia alarms are not deleted due to the outdated alert_nokia.conf.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Some of the log messages watched by alertd changed between BIG-IP software versions 10.x to versions 11.x/12.x. However, the /etc/alertd/alert_nokia.conf file has not been updated accordingly.

Conditions:
Running versions 11.x/12.x and receiving targeted messages that match the 10.x regex key fields. This occurs when the Nokia snmp alarms are enabled. See K15435 at https://support.f5.com/csp/#/article/K15435

Impact:
Matching the specific fields in the log message fails, so the corresponding alarm is not deleted from the nokia_alarm table. This might cause SNMP alerts to not be broadcast in Nokia-specific environments.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The log messages watched by alertd and appearing in alert_nokia.conf now match each clear event key to its corresponding error definition, so alerts are recorded correctly.


551189 : Modifying an HTTP cookie value via the HTTP::cookie iRule API may yield to incorrect HTTP header data

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Upon repeatedly modifying the same HTTP cookie value (in the Set-Cookie header) within an iRule attached to a virtual server, the HTTP::cookie API may produce stale HTTP header data (e.g. HTTP Set-Cookie header and/or other HTTP headers).

Conditions:
LTM Virtual Server handling HTTP traffic, with iRule attached which modifies a given HTTP cookie value through the HTTP::cookie API, on ingress and/or egress traffic (through the HTTP_REQUEST and/or HTTP_RESPONSE events). An example use-case for producing the error would be encrypting and decrypting HTTP cookies via an iRule.

Impact:
Repeatedly altering the same HTTP cookie value in an iRule, via the HTTP::cookie API, may yield to an HTTP request/response with inconsistent HTTP header data, including but not limited to the Set-Cookie HTTP header.

Workaround:
None.


551010-7 : Crash on unexpected WAM storage queue state

Component: WebAccelerator

Symptoms:
In rare circumstances WAM may enter an unexpected queue state and crash.

Conditions:
WAM configured on virtual with request queuing enabled

Impact:
Crash

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Gracefully recover from unexpected WAM storage queue state


550782-4 : Cache Lookups for Validating Resolvers ignore the query's DNSSEC OK (DO) bit

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
RRSIG present when not asked for, and RRSIG and AD drop from response upon expiration from the cache.

Conditions:
If standard DNS requests are made against a Validating Resolver DNS cache that points to a second BIG-IP which in turn contains a wideip in a signed zone

Impact:
RRSIG present when not asked for, and RRSIG and AD drop from response upon expiration from the cache

Workaround:
N/A

Fix:
Update message encoding to depend on client DO bit.


550694-3 : LCD display stops updating and Status LED turns/blinks Amber

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
The LCD display may stop updating and the Status LED may turn Amber and begin blinking on BIG-IP 2000, 4000, 5000, 7000, or 10000-series appliances.

Conditions:
The Status LED turns Amber if the LED/LCD module stops receiving updates from the BIG-IP host, and begins blinking Amber if the LED/LCD module does not receive updates from the BIG-IP host for three minutes or longer.
This condition may occur if data transfers between the BIG-IP host and the LED/LCD module over the connecting USB bus becomes stalled.
Due to changes in BIG-IP v11.5.0 and later, the frequency and likelihood of this condition is greatly reduced, but may still occur under rare conditions.

Impact:
When this condition occurs, the front-panel LCD display does not display the current BIG-IP host status, and the Status LED blinks Amber. There is no impact to BIG-IP host operations, and no disruption to traffic.

Workaround:
This condition can be cleared by either of the following actions:
1. Press one of the buttons on the LCD display to navigate the LCD menus.
2. Issue the following command at the BIG-IP host console:
/sbin/lsusb -v -d 0451:3410.

Either action generates USB traffic, which triggers recovery from the USB stalled transfer condition.

Fix:
Auto-recovery from a USB stalled-transfer condition has been implemented, which prevents the Status LED from blinking Amber on BIG-IP 2000, 4000, 5000, 7000, 10000 or 12000-series appliances.


550689-2 : Resolver H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET Address Change

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET are changing on December 1st 2015 from (128.63.2.53 / 2001:500:1::803f:235) to (198.97.190.53 / 2001:500:1::53). The old addresses will be good for 6 months after the change, and then the IPv4 address will go completely offline, and the IPv6 address is subject to go offline as well. More details http://h.root-servers.org/renumber.html

Conditions:
DNS Resolver uses hard-coded root hints for H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.

Impact:
Incorrect address for a root-server means no response to that query.

Workaround:
There are 12 other root-servers that also provide answers to TLD queries, so this is cosmetic, but the addresses still need to be updated to respond to the change.

Fix:
Updated H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET to reflect the new IPv4 and IPv6 addresses taking effect December 1st, 2015 from (128.63.2.53 / 2001:500:1::803f:235) to (198.97.190.53 / 2001:500:1::53).

For more information, see H-Root will change its addresses on 1 December 2015, available here: http://h.root-servers.org/renumber.html.


550669-1 : Monitors stop working - throttling monitor instance probe because file descriptor limit 65436 reached

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Monitor checks stop working.

The ltm log file contains error messages similar to the following: 01060154:4: Bigd PID 7147, instance 0, throttling monitor instance probe because file descriptor limit 65436 reached.

Conditions:
- You have a monitor type configured that uses Tcl internally (for example, FTP, IMAP, POP3, SMTP monitors).
 
- You have monitor logging enabled for the pool members or nodes.
 
  tmsh list ltm pool <pool_name>
  members {
    ...
                <member> {
                  ...
      logging enabled
               
  tmsh list ltm node <node_ip>
    ...
    logging enabled

Impact:
Monitoring stops working; pool members are marked down when they are not.

Workaround:
No workaround if Tcl-using monitors are configured.
 
If pool member or node level monitor logging is configured, cease logging and restart bigd.
 
Disable monitor logging with appropriate commands on all pools and nodes necessary:
  tmsh modify ltm pool <pool-name> members modify { all { logging disabled }}
  tmsh modify ltm node <node-ip> logging disabled
 
Restart bigd:
  tmsh restart sys service bigd

Fix:
Resolved resource leak so monitors continue to work properly.

550434-5 : Diameter connection may stall if server closes connection before CER/CEA handshake completes

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
Serverside connection stalls. Connection is not torn down and packets are not forwarded to serverside.

Conditions:
Selected pool member closes (via FIN) connection before sending CEA as part of Diameter handshake.

Impact:
Connection stalls until handshake timeout and then it is reset.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Serverside diameter connections will be immediately reset if FIN is received before CEA (Capabilities-Exchange-Answer).


549971-5 : Some changes to virtual servers' profile lists may cause secondary blades to restart

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If a virtual server's ip-protocol is not set, then some changes to the list of attached profiles may cause a validation error on secondary blades. This will cause those blades to restart.

Conditions:
This may happen in some cases when changing the list of profiles attached to a virtual server, but does not happen if 'ip-protocol' was explicitly set by the user.

Impact:
mcpd will restart on secondary blades. This will cause most other daemons on those blades to restart as well, including the TMM. Traffic will be lost.

Workaround:
You should explicitly set the ip-protocol when changing the profiles of a virtual server. Then this bug will not occur.

Fix:
If a virtual server's ip-protocol was not set, then some changes to the list of attached profiles would cause a validation error on secondary blades. This would cause those blades to restart. This issue has been fixed.


549868-4 : 10G interoperability issues reported following Cisco Nexus switch version upgrade.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
10G link issues reported with VIPRION B2250, B4300 blades and BIG-IP 10x00 appliances connected to Cisco Nexus switches.

Conditions:
Issues reported after version upgrade on Cisco switch to version 7.0(5)N1(1).

Impact:
The links might not come up.

Workaround:
Toggling the SFP+ interfaces reportedly usually restores link.

Fix:
The BIG-IP system's 10G link now consistently becomes active when it is connected to other switches.


549800-2 : Renaming a virtual server with an attached plugin can cause buffer overflow

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Renaming a virtual server (essentially, moving one virtual server to a new location, which effectively renames it) might cause buffer overflow and potentially result in Failover.

Conditions:
The database variable 'mcpd.mvenabled' must be set to 'true'.
Also, when moving a virtual server, the new name must be longer than the original name.

Impact:
Buffer overflow and potentially failover.

Workaround:
Do not use the move command. Instead, issue a delete followed by a create command in a transaction.

Fix:
Renaming a virtual server now works as expected, and does not results in buffer overflow or failover.


549782-1 : XFV driver can leak memory

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When the interface goes down, memory is not correctly freed.

Conditions:
the leak happens when the interface goes down

Impact:
Over a long enough period of time the BIG-IP can go out of memory and TMM needs to be restarted.

Workaround:
none

Fix:
The driver was corrected so that when the interface is brought down, all the xfrags currently in the ring buffer are freed.


549588-2 : EAM memory leak when cookiemap is destroyed without deleting Cookie object in it

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
EAM memory growing and OOM kills EAM process under memory pressure.

Conditions:
This occurs when using access management such as Oracle Access Manager, when an authentication request is redirected to IDP (redirect URL is present) with cookies present, memory can grow unbounded.

Impact:
EAM memory usage increases and OOM kills EAM process if the system is under memory pressure.

Workaround:
No Workaround

Fix:
EAM memory usage no longer grows. Cookie objects are deleted prior to deleting cookieMap from obAction destructor.


549543-3 : DSR rejects return traffic for monitoring the server

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
System DB variable 'tm.monitorencap' controls whether the server monitor traffic is encapsulated inside DSR tunnel. If it is set to 'enable', monitor traffic is encapsulated, and return traffic is without the tunnel encapsulation. In such a case, the return traffic is not mapped to the original monitor flow, and gets rejected/lost.

Conditions:
System DB variable 'tm.monitorencap' is set to 'enable', and DSR server pool is monitored.

Impact:
Monitor traffic gets lost, and server pool is marked down.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The DSR tunnel flow now sets the correct underlying network interface, so that the return monitor flow can match the originating flow, which results in the DSR monitor working as expected.


549406-5 : Destination route-domain specified in the SOCKS profile

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The SOCKS profile route-domain setting is supposed to control which route domain is used for destination addresses. It is currently used to identify the listener/tunnel interface to use when forwarding the traffic, but does not set the route domain on the destination address used by the proxy to determine how to forward the traffic.

Conditions:
When the virtual server receives a SOCKS request and the route-domain is not the default (0).

Impact:
SOCKS connection fails immediately and the system returns the following message to the client: Results(V5): General SOCKS server failure (1). Traffic is forwarded correctly only when the destination is route-domain 0. Other route domains might result in error messages and possible failed traffic.

Workaround:
Use a destination route-domain of 0 when working with the SOCKS profile.

Fix:
The system now uses the destination route-domain specified in the SOCKS profile. This allows the SOCKS profile to work correctly when the destination is not in route-domain 0.


549393-3 : SWG URL categorization may cause the /var/lib/mysql file system to fill.

Component: Application Visibility and Reporting

Symptoms:
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) URL categorization may cause the /var file system to fill. This might manifest in the following ways.

1. The /var/lib/mysql file system is full or approaching 100% utilization, as shown in the following example:

# df -h /var/lib/mysql
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg--db--vda-app.ASWADB.set.1.mysqldb
                       12G 11G 576M 95% /var/lib/mysql

2. The database and index files for SWG URL categorization have grown very large, as shown in the following example:

-- /var/lib/mysql/AVR/AVR_DIM_APM_SWG_URL.MYD: 8.1G <--- Database!
-- /var/lib/mysql/AVR/AVR_DIM_APM_SWG_URL.MYI: 765M <--- Index!

Conditions:
SWG is provisioned and configured to perform URL classification, and a large amount of web traffic is being proxied by the SWG system.

Impact:
This results in the following impacts: - SWG-related operations dependent on MySQL may fail. - Once the /var/lib/mysql file system reaches 100% utilization, other BIG-IP system functions that are dependent on the MySQL system may also experience issues.

Workaround:
The issue can be worked around by resetting the AVR statistics. You can find information on how to reset AVR statistics in SOL14956: Resetting BIG-IP AVR statistics, available at https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/14000/900/sol14956.html.

Impact of procedure: The procedure removes all Analytics data and resets the MySQL database.

Fix:
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) URL categorization no longer causes the /var file system to fill.


549329-1 : L7 mirrored ACK from standby to active box can cause tmm core on active

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A spurious ACK sent to the standby unit will be mirrored over to the active unit for processing. If a matching connection on the active has not been fully initialized, tmm will crash.

Conditions:
HA active-standby configuration setup for L7 packet mirroring.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Spurious ACK no longer causes outage, instead the packet is dropped.


549283-3 : Add a log message to indicate transition in the state of Gx and Gy sessions.

Component: Policy Enforcement Manager

Symptoms:
Without a state transition indicator, it is difficult to determine if the Gx and Gy session is active and UP on the BIG-IP device.

Conditions:
Gx or Gy state transitions need to occur.

Impact:
Difficult to identify and debug issues related to Gx and Gy state transitions.

Workaround:
None needed. This is an improvement.

Fix:
Added a log message to indicate the state transitions for Gx and Gy sessions.


549108-1 : RDP resource 'Custom parameters' fail to accept parameters containing spaces or colon in the value

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Some RDP parameters may contain whitespaces or colon in the value, e.g.:
loadbalanceinfo:s:tsv://MS Terminal Services Plugin.1.RDSFarm

The configuration utility will throw a validation error "01070734:3: Configuration error: apm resource remote-desktop rdp: Parse error on line 0: <parameter>"

Conditions:
This occurs when using RDP parameters containing spaces or colon in the value.

Impact:
Administrator is unable to configure the RDP resource as desired.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
RDP parameters parsing has been refined to support values containing colons or whitespaces.


549086-8 : Windows 10 is not detected when Firefox is used

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Windows 10 is not detected when the Firefox browser is used.

Conditions:
Windows 10 and Firefox (at least versions 40 and 41).

Impact:
The Client OS agent chooses an incorrect branch. Network Access might be disabled for such a client.

Workaround:
There is no workaround.

Fix:
Now Windows 10 is properly detected with the Firefox browser.


548796-2 : Avrd is at CPU is 100%

Component: Performance

Symptoms:
When the Application Visibility and Reporting (AVR) module is being used, the avrd daemon can consume all CPU. The avrd log will contain error messages similar to Semaphore DB_Publisher_ready is not set, for xxxx seconds

Conditions:
This can occur when using the AVR module.

Impact:
Avrd gets to 100% CPU and stays there even when no traffic is being passed, which will impact system performance

Workaround:
Restarting tmm will temporarily mitigate this problem

Fix:
Avrd is no longer susceptible to consuming all CPU indefinitely even when traffic is not being passed.


548680-2 : TMM may core when reconfiguring iApps that make use of iRules with procedures.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM may core when reconfiguring iApps that make extensive use of iRules with procedures.

Conditions:
During the reconfiguration of more than one iApp by switching templates, prior and new templates to contain iRules with procedures of the same name.
After the second or later reconfiguration TMM may core.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Modify iApp template to generate procedures that have a unique name per iApp.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores when reconfiguring more than one iApp that contains iRule procedures of the same name.


548678-2 : ASM blocking page does not display when using SPDY profile

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
The ASM blocking page will not be displayed when using the SPDY profile.

Conditions:
Virtual configured with ASM and spdy profile and request is blocked by ASM.

Impact:
Request blocked page is not displayed.

Workaround:
If possible, disable the SPDY profile on virtual servers configured to use ASM.

Fix:
ASM will now correctly display its blocking page when the SPDY profile is enabled and an ASM blocking rule is triggered.


548583-3 : TMM crashes on standby device with re-mirrored SIP monitor flows.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Occasionally, the standby system with a SIP monitor crashes in a configuration where the active system contains a forwarding virtual server with a wildcard IP address and port, with connection mirroring enabled.

Conditions:
This occurs on an active-standby setup in which there is an L4 forwarding virtual server or SNAT listener configuration with a wildcard IP address and port, and with connection mirroring enabled. Also, the standby has a SIP monitor configured.

Impact:
Packets that are sent by the SIP monitor on the standby get routed back to the active unit (possibly due to a routing loop) and are then sent to the standby because of the wildcard mirrored configuration. tmm on standby might crash. When the crash occurs, the standby system posts the following assert and crashes: tmm failed assertion, non-zero ha_unit required for mirrored flow.

Workaround:
-- If a routing or switching loop is the reason the packets come back to the active unit, then the routing issues can be eliminated.
-- The mirroring of the wildcard virtual server or SNAT listener can be disabled.

Fix:
TMM no longer crashes on standby device with re-mirrored SIP monitor flows.


548563-2 : Transparent Cache Messages Only Updated with DO-bit True

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
When a transparent cache stores a message with DNSSEC OK (DO) bit TRUE and its TTL expires, the message is only updated when a new message arrives with DO-bit TRUE.

Conditions:
Running a DNS transparent cache with clients requesting DNSSEC messages.

Impact:
When the DO-bit TRUE's cached message TTL expires, the general impact is DO-bit FALSE queries will be proxied until the message cache is updated with DO-bit TRUE.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
The message cache is updated regardless of DO-bit state after TTL expiration. However, the cache prefers DO-bit TRUE messages, and will update the cached message if a newer one arrives with DNSSEC OK.


548385-3 : iControl calls that query key/cert from parent folder, and the name is missing the extension, result in incorrect results

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
If the active folder is not same as the folder in which the query is being run, and the corresponding key/cert extension is not present in the name of the key/certificate file, the query result returns incorrect results.

Conditions:
This occurs when iControl calls that query key/cert from parent folder, and the name is missing the extension.

Impact:
The query result returns incorrect results.

Workaround:
You can use one of the following workarounds:
-- Change the filename to include the extension.
-- Change to the folder containing the iControl call you are executing.

Fix:
The system now correctly loads key/cert/csr/crl files without an extension, so iControl calls that query those files from parent folder, now return correct results.


548361 : Performance degradation when adding VDI profile to virtual server

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Performance degradation when adding VDI profile to virtual server

Conditions:
This occurs when using the VDI profile

Impact:
0.3s latency increase comparing with previous result

Workaround:
none

Fix:
Fixed 0.3s latency between client and server SSL hello if VDI profile is added to virtual server.


548239-3 : BGP routing using route-maps cannot match route tags

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
When a route-map is used to redistribute routes into BGP, matching on the route tag fails.

Conditions:
Dynamic routing using BGP, redistribution into BGP using a route-map, route-map matches route tag.

Impact:
BGP may not get all prefixes from other routing protocols.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Route-maps used with BGP now correctly match route tags.


547732-1 : TMM may core on using SSL::disable on an already established serverside connection

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
TMM process may crash if the SSL::disable iRule command is used on a serverside with a connection that has already established SSL.

Conditions:
Use of the 'SSL::disable serverside' iRule command on a serverside connection that has already established SSL

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Do not use SSL::disable on an event where the serverside SSL connection is already established.

Fix:
TMM no longer cores on using SSL::disable on an already established serverside connection, it will now log a warning Connection error: hud_ssl_handler:605: disable profile (80)


547657-1 : A TCL error in a DNS_RESPONSE iRule event can cause a tmm crash.

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
A TCL error, such as referencing an undefined variable, in a DNS_RESPONSE iRule event can cause a tmm crash. This can occur on a UDP listener with a DNS profile without datagram load balancing enabled. A DNS_REQUEST event, with any content, on the same listener is also required.

Conditions:
All of the following:

UDP listener with DNS profile without datagram load balancing.

A TCL error, such as referencing an undefined variable, in a DNS_RESPONSE iRule event.

A DNS_REQUEST iRule event with any content.

Impact:
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Workaround:
Either add datagram load balancing to the listener or correct the TCL errors that lead to the problem.

Fix:
The TCL error handling is now processed asynchronously which prevents the problem from occurring.


547546-3 : Add support for auto-update of MachineCertService

Component: Access Policy Manager

Symptoms:
Auto-update of MachineCertService wasn't implemented. If APM contains newer MachineCertService EdgeClient doesn't pick it up automatically.

Conditions:
Upgrading existing APM install.

Impact:
Since MachineCertService is not auto-updatable service redeployment is required.

Fix:
Added support of auto-update to MachineCertService.


547537-3 : TMM core due to iSession tunnel assertion failure

Component: Wan Optimization Manager

Symptoms:
TMM core due to "valid isession pcb" assertion failure in isession_dedup_admin.c.

Conditions:

547532-2 : Monitor instances in a partition that uses a non-default route domain can fail validation on secondary blades

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
Error messages similar to this are present in the ltm log:

-- err mcpd[9369]: 01020036:3: The requested monitor instance (/part10/test_mon 90.90.90.90%10 443 ltm-pool-member) was not found.
-- err mcpd[9369]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Configuration from primary failed validation: 01020036:3: The requested monitor instance (/part10/test_mon 90.90.90.90%10 443 ltm-pool-member) was not found.

Conditions:
A chassis-based system with multiple blades. This can occur a few different ways:
- A monitor is attached to an object that is configured in a partition that uses a non-default route domain, but the address of the monitor is explicitly using the default route domain (e.g. %0).
- A monitor defined in the Common partition is attached to an object from a partition where the default route domain is different.

Impact:
Monitor instances in a partition that uses a non-default route domain can fail validation on secondary blades. mcpd restarts.

Workaround:
There are two possible workarounds:

-- Move the monitor to the /Common/ partition and do not specify %0 in the Alias Address.

-- Do not use monitors from other partitions where the default route domain is different.

Fix:
The complete state for addresses on the primary blade is propagated to secondary blades.

547000-4 : Enforcer application might crash on XML traffic when out of memory

Component: Application Security Manager

Symptoms:
Enforcer application might crash on XML traffic when out of memory.

Conditions:
This occurs when the system is out of memory.

Impact:
The BIG-IP system might temporarily fail to process traffic.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
This release fixes a scenario where the system might crash when the XML parser ran out of memory.


546747-2 : SSL connections may fail with a handshake failure when the ClientHello is sent in multiple packets

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Sometimes BIG-IP system responds with a fatal-handshake alert and closes the SSL session for a new connection when a ClientHello record is split between two or more packets.

If SSL debug logging is enabled, the system logs an error such as the following:
    01260009:7: Connection error: ssl_hs_rxhello:6210: ClientHello contains extra data (47).

Note: For information on SSL debug logging, see SOL15292: Troubleshooting SSL/TLS handshake failures at https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/15000/200/sol15292.html.

Conditions:
This occurs when a SSL ClientHello record is split across multiple TCP segments, and the last segment is relatively small.

Impact:
SSL connections fail to complete with a handshake failure.

Workaround:
No workaround.

Fix:
SSL handshakes no longer fails to complete when the ClientHello is split across multiple TCP segments, and the last segment is relatively small.


546640 : tmsh show gtm persist <filter option> does not filter correctly

Component: Global Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Following commands fail to return results even if there are matching records:
  # tmsh show gtm persist level wideip
  # tmsh show gtm persist target-type pool-member

Conditions:
This only happens when running the tmsh commands listed in the Symptoms.

Impact:
It is not possible to get a granular detail for persist stats.

Workaround:
Use GUI.

Fix:
Filters for the tmsh show gtm persist command now apply the filters correctly.


546410-2 : Configuration may fail to load when upgrading from version 10.x.

Component: TMOS

Symptoms:
After upgrade from 10.x to 11.5.3 HF2, configuration fails to load with the following error:
01070734:3: Configuration error: Invalid primary key on monitor_param object () - not a full path 2.

Conditions:
Configuration contains a user-created monitor (A) that inherits from user-created monitor (B). Monitor A appears first within the configuration files and monitor B does not have a 'destination' attribute.

Impact:
Configuration fails to load.

Workaround:
Re-order monitors such that Monitor B appears first, or add a 'destination' attribute (i.e., 'destination *:*') to monitor B.

Fix:
10.x upgrade now completes successfully, even when parent monitors appear later in the monitor list, or when there is no destination attribute in the child monitor.


546082-5 : Special characters might change input.

Component: iApp Technology

Symptoms:
Special characters by users might change the intended data.

Conditions:
Use of special characters.

Impact:
Incorrect or unwanted response.

Workaround:
None.

Fix:
Updated data handling to properly account for special characters.


546080-5 : Path sanitization for iControl REST worker

Vulnerability Solution Article: K99998454


545985-3 : ICAP 2xx response (except 200, 204) is treated as error

Component: Service Provider

Symptoms:
An ICAP status code from the ICAP server of 2xx (other than 200 or 204) is treated as an error, causing the reset of the ICAP connection and the service-down-action to be performed on the parent virtual server (as configured in the requestadapt or responseadapt profile). The RFC 3507 requires the ICAP client (BigIP) to handle the response normally (ie. like 200).

Conditions:
The ICAP server returns a 2xx status code that is not defined explicitly for ICAP.

Impact:
Transsactions involving an ICAP server that returns a non-IACP 2xx response do not work, and the service-down action is performed.

Workaround:
If possible, have the ICAP server return status code 200.

Fix:
An ICAP status code from the ICAP server of 2xx (other than 200 or 204) is treated as a normal 200 status code, thus the encapsulated HTTP request or response is returned to the HTTP client or server.


545810-1 : ASSERT in CSP in packet_reuse

Component: Local Traffic Manager

Symptoms:
Causes TMM to crash

Conditions:
This crash will happen on LTM virtuals that meet the following two configuration criteria:
- the virtual is configured with fasthttp profile.
- the virtual's enabled VLAN is mapped to the _loopback interface.

Impact:
Crash and restart of TMM

Workaround:
None

Fix:
Fixed the logic in determining if we are an L7 loopback connection. This way CSP receives only packets that it owns and can be re-used
