Deleting a rewrite profile fails to delete the dependent objects.


ConfigSync fails with a message similar to the following: err mcpd[6817]: 01070712:3: Caught configuration exception (0), Values (/Common/rewrite_profile) specified for rewrite rules URI (/Common/rewrite_profile rewrite_uri_rule): foreign key index (rewrite_rules_uri_fk) do not point at an item that exists in the database.


Deleting a rewrite profile.


On an affected system (for example, the system sourcing a ConfigSync), save and then re-load the configuration. This causes mcpd to remove the vestigial object. To do so, run the following commands, in sequence: -- tmsh save sys config partitions all. -- tmsh load sys config partitions all. Ensuring that is enabled on device groups also mitigates this issue.

Fix Information

Deleting a rewrite profile now also deletes the rewrite_rules_uri dependent objects in mcpd, as expected.
