Bd crashes during system start-up when MCP is down for some reason, usually an mcpd crash. bd.log contains the following log message: Failed to connect to mcpd, sleep 5 secs and try to re-connect


System fails to start, it may successfully start after the crash happened or maybe several such crashes will happen.


Mcpd crashed or down.


Restarting the BIG-IP system usually helps. Determine why mcpd does not work.
