If the client-ssl profile is /Common/clientssl, its parent profile is supposed to be /Common/clientssl. But the configuration could potentially use 'defaults-from none'.


The upgrade fails after booting into the new release, during the config loading phase. This occurs because the script extracts the line 'defaults-from none' and treats 'none' as its parent profile.


This condition could be caused by executing the following command when generating the configuration. 'tmsh modify ltm profile client-ssl clientssl defaults-from none'


Edit the configuration prior to upgrading, changing the defaults-from value on the client-ssl profile to the name of that profile.

Fix Information

Upgrade no longer fails if 'defaults-from none' is under profile '/Common/clientssl'.
