If an device group is configured to perform auto-sync with incremental synchronization enabled, and a number of rapid configuration changes cause a rapid sequence of auto-sync operations, synchronizations may fail, and mcpd may log a message like the following to the LTM log: 0107168e:5: Unable to do incremental sync, reverting to full load for device group


Manual mcpd restart may be required.


- This affects any device group configured with auto-sync enabled with and full-load-on-sync disabled. - A number of rapid configuration changes resulting in a rapid sequence of auto-sync operations.


Disable auto-sync.

Fix Information

Automatic incremental synchronization succeeds even after a large number of synchronization operations in rapid succession.
