Fixed In:
12.0.0

Opened: May 12, 2015
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

MCP validation does not throw an error when the profile of a tunnel is changed to another type after a tunnel is created.

Impact

The profile of a tunnel can be changed from one type to another without any MCP validation error, and the resulting tunnel with a new profile type may not work.

Conditions

The profile of a tunnel is changed from one type to another (for example, from an IPIP profile to an IPsec profile) after the tunnel is created.

Workaround

If the profile type of a tunnel needs to be changed, the tunnel should be deleted first and recreated with a new profile type.

Fix Information

MCP validation is in place to prevent the profile of a tunnel is changed from one type to another after the tunnel is created.
