Symptoms

If an APM policy sync puts the new policy on a member of a sync-failover device group then the sync of the sync-failover group may fail.

Impact

Sync will fail, but full load sync will then succeed.

Conditions

* At least three devices in trust. * Two devices in a sync-failover device group. * Two devices in a sync-only device group suitable for APM policy sync. * The policy is synchronized from a device that is not in the sync-failover device group.

Workaround

Using a full load sync (the force option on the GUI sync page) will work.

Fix Information

If an APM policy sync puts the new policy on a member of a sync-failover device group then the sync of the sync-failover group used to fail. This now succeeds.
