Symptoms

A monitor destination address in the form of *:port (IPv4) is converted to *.port when upgrading from 10.2.4 to 11.5.x.

Impact

Monitors appears to function normally but they will have the wrong format in the config file.

Conditions

A monitor exists with a non-explicit address and explicit port on a BIG-IP system running 10.2.4. Then upgrade to 11.5.x (or install 10.2.4 ucs)

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Determine if non-explicit (*) address is ipv4 or ipv6 based on next character to be parsed.
