Non-identical HA-group configuration detected for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

Indeni will identify when two F5 devices are part of a device group and alert if the HA-group configuration is different.

Remediation Steps

Make sure that the HA-group configuration is exactly the same in both devices. You may optionally choose to ignore certain differences if they are intended.

How does this work?

This alert logs into the F5 device through SSH and runs the command "tmsh show sys ha-group detail" in order to extract the ha-group configuration. The configuration pulled is compared with the other members in the cluster. For this alert to work this means that all members must have identical configuration, including names.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could could periodically log into the device through the Web Interface and to to "System -> High-availability -> HA-groups". It is also available by logging into the device through SSH, entering TMSH and executing the command "show sys ha-group detail".
