Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
11.5.0, 11.5.1, 11.5.2, 11.5.3, 11.5.4, 11.5.5, 11.5.6, 11.5.7, 11.5.8, 11.5.9, 11.5.10

Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 10, 2013

Severity: 3-Major


If the default HTTP profile "http" was modified, when creating a new virtual server in the ASM deployment wizard, the associated HTTP profile is "http-transparent".


HTTP profile gets set to the wrong profile. This makes the PEM deployment unusable, updating the security policy will return an error "01070734:3: Configuration error: In Virtual Server (/Common/test) HTTP is configured as a Transparent Proxy, and thus is incompatible with any other filter other than PEM."


This will occur if you have modified the default http profile and then create a new virtual server using the ASM deployment wizard.


After using the wizard, you can set the http profile for the virtual server back to http

Fix Information

If you create a security policy using the deployment wizard, the associated HTTP profile is "http".
