Certain DoS Profiles require a preliminary profile to be attached as well. For example DNS enabled DoS profile may require DNS profile to be attached first. However in cases where both profiles are being attached at the same time, an error may be thrown telling the user that the required profile is not attached.


If you have such DoS profiles in use and attach such profiles in single transaction you may be affected (GUI operations or iControl REST api).


A DoS profile needs to be attached at the same time with its required profile. For example, Application DoS Profile requires HTTP profile to be attached as well.



Fix Information

It is now possible to attach a DoS Profile and a required supporting profile in a single transaction.
