    Changing that value will impact new connections, those connections already in the connection table will continue to return to the auto-last-hop setting established. You can do a couple things about that:

    • Evaluate your virtual server tcp/udp profile timeout settings for those virtuals served on that particular vlan and if you are not supporting any seriously long-lived connections, you could set the idle timeouts artificially low temporarily to bleed old connections off safely, then clear any remaining connections to the virtuals in that vlan. This would be less impactful
    • Make no changes to your idle timeouts, and wait until immediately before your routers, then clear the connections on the virtual servers being served on that vlan. You can script it if there are too many to clear manually. This would be more impactful.
