If a configuration is being loaded that changes a VLAN and creates a SelfIP that uses that VLAN and a non-default Route-Domain, load will fail with the error: err mcpd[7269]: 01070978:3: The vlan (/Common/vlan1) for the specified self IP ( must be one of the vlans in the associated route domain (/Common/100). Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.


Load will initially fail, blocking upgrade.


There must be an existing configuration which contains a VLAN and a SelfIP that is configured to use that VLAN. No non-default route-domain is connected to either configuration item. Then during a load, if the VLAN is recreated and a non-default route-domain is created, where the route-domain includes the VLAN as part of its configuration, load will fail when the SelfIP is also recreated that uses both the new VLAN and Route-Domain.


Exit TMSH (if in TMSH), run bigstart restart and then attempt the load again. Restarting MCPd appears to clear out the problem.

Fix Information

There was a duplicate entry that attaches the default Route-Domain to the VLAN. This condition is now detected and the duplicate entry is removed during a transaction of this nature, including load.
