Severity: 3-Major


On a HA pair with manual sync enabled device groups, changes made on the standby need to be synced twice if on-demand compilation or on-demand rule deployment is enabled.


One extra manual sync is required.


This only happen when 1. The BIG-IP configuration contains device groups that are configured to "manual sync". 2. The configuration change is done from standby device.


The general guideline of using the on-demand features is that all configuration changes should be done from Active device, not from standby devices.
