On a device provisioned with LTM only, cron may log or send an email containing the following perl error: /etc/cron.hourly/purge_mysql_logs.pl: Usage: $class->connect([$dsn [,$user [,$passwd [,\%attr]]]]) at /etc/cron.hourly/purge_mysql_logs.pl line 27 This script was only intended to be run with AM, ASM, or ASM provisioned and it generates an error if it is not.


If cron can send email, it will send the perl error in the email once per hour.


Any device with AM, ASM, and PSM not provisioned. LTM-only devices are impacted.
