Symptoms

In case of very long profile names, it is possible for multiple actions to point to the same agent.

Impact

Policy might become uneditable.

Conditions

If name of policy is about 2 letters shorter than the length limit (varies by release) it is possible that automatic name resolution could create same name for agents, with the result being that instead of two agents there would be only one

Workaround

Edit bigip.conf and delete reference to agent from one of actions, then reload bigip.com

Fix Information

Name resolution is working properly now and mcpd doesn't allow such a situation

Behavior Change

Previous releases allowed users to assign a single agent to multiple apm policy-item objects. This is a misconfiguration and now validation prevents users from creating such a configuration.
