Severity: 3-Major


During upgrade to v11.6.0 or later, the configuration load may fail due to the following error. "01071203:3: Caption (Failure) of the rule in macrocall (/Common/mc-1) must be identical to the caption (Caption) of terminalout. Unexpected Error: Validating configuration process failed


Configuration load failure occurs at upgrade.


This happens when loading a configuration file that was saved by pre-v11.6.0 onto v11.6.0 (or later) with an policy access-policy of type macro where there are terminal-out items, but the "priority" order does not match the order of the rules in the corresponding apm policy policy-item that makes the macrocall.


To work around the problem, manually edit the config so the priority order matches the rule order for captions.
