Internal objects used as part of iRules in non-Common may be removed when only the Common partition is loaded. Sync may also trigger this.


When the system is in this state, the dataplane may not run the relevant snippets.


This happens when only the Common partition is loaded ('load sys config' or 'load sys config partitions { Common }'). It does not happen when another partition is loaded individually ('load sys config partitions { p1 }') or when all partitions are loaded simultaneously ('load sys config partitions all').


Loading all partitions, instead of just Common, will work correctly. (That is, 'load sys config partitions all' will cause them to be recreated.)

Fix Information

Rules and objects now appear correctly in the new partition.
