    You need a much newer version of code. I believe that 9.0.45 is
    formally released now and version 10 code ( may be a better
    It's imperative that you upgrade the code first as you're definitely
    hitting a bug.

            Hi all,


            I'm trying to setup an alteon 184 load balancer WebOS 9.0.35
    with the simplest documented configuration (Alteon HTTP Load Balancing
    TTA040516.pdf). Ie, two real servers, one virtual server, two
    interfaces, one http service, etc.


            And it's all ok until applying layer 4 slb ON (the last command,
    as in Murphy's law). Then, suddenly, the virtual server that had started
    up goes down, the real servers become unreachable and the default
    gateway no longer responds. Few seconds later the timer thread enters
    into PANIC and restarts the alteon.


            And then another problem comes up. After it goes down it won't
    restart. It claims that not all processors are ready and goes down again
    in an endless loop. It needs a power off / power on restart to come up


            Can anyone help us (me+alteon) ?



            Best regards
