MCP validation error when adding/removing reference and adding/deleting an object in the same transaction.


Validation error. The system posts an error similar to the following: transaction failed: 01020066:3: The requested virtual server profile (/Common/vs1 /Common/http1) already exists in partition Common. When deleting, the message is: 01020036:3: The requested virtual server profile (/Common/vs1 http1) was not found.


During device group config sync, iControl transactions, and tmsh operations. For example, delete and create the same virtual server and specify a profile/VLAN, or remove a profile from a virtual server and then delete the profile in the same transaction.


The removal of the object reference must be done in a separate transaction. For example, if you want to delete a profile that is being used, create one transaction removing it from virtual servers, then a second transaction deleting the profile.

Fix Information

The system now supports adding/removing a reference and the object in a single transaction.
