What are your self IPs? When you take a packet capture of the Ping to the nodes, what do you see? Are the nodes configured to respond to icmp? Can you ping them from elsewhere? If you initiate a telnet connection from the bigIP to the nodes, does that work? A packet capture of the above troubleshooting should be illuminating.

What is the subnet mask for the Self IP of What is the subnet mask of the nodes? Presuming you don't use route domains, copy the result of `tmsh show net route all` or `show net route all` if you're already in TMOS.
