Opened: Feb 28, 2023

Severity: 3-Major


Publishing LTM draft policy and "save config" operations are not atomic, hence there exists a race condition. When the latter happens first, then the issue is observed otherwise the LTM draft policy is successfully updated into the bigip.conf file.


Published LTM draft policies are reverted to the draft state.


- Execute the command "tmsh load /sys config current-partition" or the existing system configuration is loaded from bigip.conf after publishing the draft LTM policy.


Perform any of the below-mentioned steps immediately after successfully publishing an LTM draft policy: - Execute the command "tmsh save /sys config current-partition" on the BIG-IP shell. or Execute curl -sku $COLON_SEPARATED_USERNAME_PASSWORD https://$HOST/mgmt/tm/sys/config/ -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"command":"save"}' or Execute curl -sku $COLON_SEPARATED_USERNAME_PASSWORD https://$HOST/mgmt/tm/util/bash -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"command":"run", "utilCmdArgs":"-c \"tmsh save sys config current-partition\""}'
