Fixed In:

Opened: Jun 17, 2015
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Under certain circumstances, the CLI preference config objects might be saved without a user attribute. The loading of such a CLI preference results in an error: Loading a preference requires user name specified.

Impact

Loading SCF or UCS configuration fails.

Conditions

Loading CLI preference that does not contain the user attribute

Workaround

Remove the CLI preference that does not contain the user from the configuration (/config/bigip_user.conf or SCF) and reload.

Fix Information

Tmsh ignores the CLI preference that does not contain the user attribute. The loading of the configuration now succeeds.
