Existing Known Issues

The following known issues appeared in the Release Notes for the previous release.

PD-13873

10 Gb Interfaces (AWS only): The AWS driver for 10 Gb interfaces (ENA) does not provide a link indication in its output, and so ‘No Link’ is the status displayed for a 10 Gb interface on AWS. Interface graphs for 10 Gb interfaces on the statistics page are not scaled properly, and so can run off the display; this will be addressed in a future release.

PD-12653

Networking: A Hyper-V VM won't boot when a 4th NIC is added.

PD-12616

WAF / Compression: With Web Application Firewall (WAF) enabled, compressed files are incorrectly decompressed. As a workaround, ensure compression is enabled in VS Advanced Properties by selecting the Enable Compression option.

PD-12492

Downgrade: If an Azure VLM is downgraded to the LTS firmware release (7.1.35.x), the WUI may display in the top right-hand corner that the VLM is a Hyper-V VLM. This indicates that the Azure VLM Add-On Package must be added to the system to provide full Azure VLM functionality. If this occurs, please contact Kemp Support to get the required add-on package.

PD-12354

Hardware Support: The LoadMasters LM-X25 and LM-X40 do not support the following SFP+ modules in this release: LM-SFP-SX (SFP+ SX Transceiver 1000BASE-SX 850nm, 550m over MMF), LM-SFP-LX (SFP+ LX Transceiver 1000BASE-LX 1310nm, 10KM over SMF).

PD-12237

HA / NTP: Configuring NTP for the first time after the system is running in High Availability (HA) mode and when the current time on the machines is not correct, may cause the systems to both go into the Master state.

PD-12147

ESP / RADIUS: In a LoadMaster configuration with ESP and Radius server-side authentication enabled, sessions may fail to be established.

PD-12058

Browser Support: An issue exists when connecting to the LoadMaster WUI when using newer versions of the Firefox browser on initial configuration of a hardware FIPS LoadMaster.

PD-11861

RADIUS / IPv6: IPv6 is not supported by the current RADIUS implementation in the LoadMaster for both WUI Authorization and ESP Authentication.

PD-11166

Networking: Azure LoadMasters are not translating the additional network address between the Master and Slave correctly.

PD-11044

Sharepoint Virtual Services: A second authentication prompt is presented when a file is uploaded to SharePoint with the following configuration: WAF is configured with Process Responses enabled on the main Virtual Service and KCD is enabled on the SubVS level for server-side authentication.

PD-10917

HA: An issue exists when setting up a 2-armed HA Virtual LoadMaster in Azure.

PD-10784

HA: Configuring LoadMaster HA using eth1 on an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Virtual LoadMaster does not work.
