Mcpd fails to load the config.


The BIG-IP is mostly unusable after the load fails.


When restoring a UCS or installing from a version with HTTP Class profiles the upgrade may convert the profiles to policies that fail to load. The policies fail to load when the profiles and pools are partitioned.


Upgrade to v11.x (x < 4) then upgrade to v11.4 or: 1) For all policies referencing pools in /config/bigpipe/bigip.conf, edit the pool name so it has the correct folder. 2) Run /usr/libexe/bigpipe daol 3) Run tmsh save sys config 4) Run tmsh load sys config

Fix Information

11.4 now handles L7 policies created in 10.x that are stored in partitions that refer to pools with no partition.
