Load may fail with an error similar to the following: 01070726:3: Policy /Common/Drafts/[name] in partition Common cannot reference policy reference /Common/Drafts/[name] /Common/[virtual server name] in partition [partition]. Note: The named object is in partition Common, but the message will incorrectly specify a different partition.


Configuration will fail to load.


* An LTM policy has been published. * A draft has been created from this policy. * The LTM policy has been associated with a virtual server. * At least one partition other than Common has been created (the policy does not need to be in this partition). * The system is loading the configuration from the text config files (without a binary config file), e.g., as a result of performing a software upgrade or following the directions in K13030: Forcing the mcpd process to reload the BIG-IP configuration (https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13030).


Edit the configuration file to remove the draft policy (but not the published one).
