Hi @neeeewbie ,
If spanning option is not enable environments that require spanning do not process traffic.
Starting from BIG-IP 12.1.0 , when you upgrade your system from BIG-IP 10.x to BIG-IP 12.1.0 or later when you have a virtual address with address resolution protocol (ARP) disabled and spanning feature got enable.
Prior to upgrading, the virtual address is configured with ARP disabled.
After you upgrade to 188.8.131.52, the virtual server address is still configured with ARP disabled;
However the virtual server address now have the required Spanning option enabled.
You can manually modify the virtual server address to enable/disable spanning.
To manually enable/disable spanning, perform the following procedure:
1. Log in to the Configuration utility.
2. Navigate to Local Traffic > Virtual Servers > Virtual Address List.
3. Click the affected virtual server address.
4. Under Configuration, select/unselect the Spanning check box to enable/disable spanning.
5. Click Update.
I checked the documentation related to this situation.
This article explains that enabling the spans option is an expected feature after upgrade.
However, the 11.x version does not have the span option.
I wonder if the 11.x version handles the SPAN feature.
can you confirm this?
