After syncing configuration, the following error occurs: 'One or more persistence attributes are incompatible with the persistence mode for profile'.


Peer boxes fail to load the configuration.


This happens if automatic sync is disabled on a device group and a user both creates and deletes a persistence profile before manually syncing the configuration.


There are two possible workarounds: 1. Perform a full sync instead of an incremental sync. 2. Create the profile, then perform a sync, and then delete the profile, and perform a separate sync.

Fix Information

This was an invalid error case being handled internally and was removed.
