While receiving a config sync operation, mcpd on a secondary blade may restart, logging: err mcpd[6383]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Configuration from primary failed validation: 01020012:3: A unsigned four-byte integer message item is invalid.... failed validation with error 16908306


MCPD on secondary blades restart. Those blades are inoperative while services restart.


-- A VIPRION system (or cluster-based vCMP guest) with more than one blade processes a full configuration load, i.e. as a result of running "tmsh load sys config" or receiving a full-load config sync from peer BIG-IP. -- The system generates a large number of warning messages during a configuration load, whose total length is larger than 65,535 bytes. These warnings can be seen in the output of "tmsh load sys config" or "tmsh load sys config verify", or are logged under message ID 01071859 An example of such a warning is: SSLv2 is no longer supported and has been removed. The 'sslv2' keyword in the cipher string of the ssl profile (/Common/ssl-profile-1) has been ignored.


Address the warnings reported by the system.
