After an upgrade or manual installation of UCS file, the configuration will fail to load and a message similar to this will appear in /var/log/ltm. 0107162b:3: Self IP (/Common/ is missing a netmask


UCS installation will fail.


Any configuration saved in a release prior to 11.3.0 is susceptible to this defect. Upgrades to versions of 11.3.x and 11.4.x might fail. The defect only occurs when routes are configured and are named by their IP address only.


To load these configurations in 11.3.x and 11.4.x, edit bigip.conf to remove routes named with only their IP address. net route /Common/ { gw network default } Now load the configuration. Once it completes, add the routes back but name them anything other than the IP address of the route. net route /Common/Default_Gateway { gw network default } Load the configuration with these changes and the system should function as expected.

Fix Information

Configurations from releases prior to 11.3.0 which have routes named by their IP address will now load on upgrade.
