Fixed In:
12.0.0

Opened: Mar 12, 2015
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

In version 12.0, a more strict validation is being applied to LTM Policy rule names. Rule names must consist of a specific set of allowed characters. Allowed characters are: a-z A-Z 0-9 _ . / : % -

Impact

During upgrade from a pre-12.0 versions to 12.0 or beyond, pre-existing LTM Policy names which contained disallowed characters will have each disallowed character automatically changed to an underscore (_).

Conditions

Pre-12.0 LTM Policies with names that have characters outside of the allowed set.

Workaround

Migration will occur automatically.

Fix Information

LTM Policy rules more strict validation
