Redirect Response pages become 'invalid' and lose their redirect URL configuration after upgrade.


The Alternate Response Page is no longer valid and no longer redirects users to the desired URL.


1) In 11.2.x a policy existed with a redirect response page where the Response Header had a 'Location' command in it. 2) Policy or device is upgraded to 11.4.x or 11.5.x (pre 11.5.3 HF2) 3) Policy or device is upgraded to 11.6.0 (pre 11.6.0 HF5).


Before upgrade, ensure the redirect URL is correctly configured.

Fix Information

Upgrade to 11.6.x now correctly retains redirect URLs for Alternate Response Pages.
