If copying policy with name longer than 70 characters it could end up in failed policy with duplicated name


Serious. This may prevent loading and importing saved configuration


1. New name is longer than ~70 characters 2. Lot of similar objects in policy or macro


Use shorter names. If configuration already exists, it's possbile to fix via editing bigip.conf (though this is not advised): 1. Find agent and make a copy with different name 2. Find access policy items that are sharing the same agent 3. Modify access policy item to point to newly created agent
