Opened: May 26, 2015

Severity: 3-Major


On a standby in a manual sync device group with pccd in pending compile state, rebooting the active before syncing causes both devices to compile and deploy the blob


Some parts of the configuration that are not manually compiled into blob earlier are now compiled and enforced automatically. It is recommended that the user checks the current firewall configuration and make any adjustment if needed.


This only happen when 1. The BIG-IP configuration contains device groups that are configured to "manual sync". 2. Active device is not in "quiescent" state when it is rebooted.
