Opened: Aug 26, 2015
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Sync-only device groups cannot be applied to the /Common folder or any folder containing ties to /Common. iApps make reference to objects in /Common, often including the iApp template itself (e.g., /Common/f5.http). There is no issue with failover device-groups.

Impact

Sync cannot be set up.

Conditions

When sync-only device groups and iApps are used together.

Workaround

Copy and reconfigure the iApp template to load in a folder other than /Common. If the iApp is tied to a CLI script, the script and all references to the script must also be moved to a non-Common folder.

Fix Information

None
