Symptoms

The Link Controller base license improperly prevents DNS namespace iRule commands.

Impact

An administrator cannot add DNS namespace commands to an iRule. Cannot upgrade from a pre-11.5 configuration, where the commands were working, to 11.5.4 through 12.1.2.

Conditions

A Link Controller license without an add-on that allows Layer 7 iRule commands.

Workaround

To enable upgrade, remove DNS namespace commands from the configuration prior to upgrade.

Fix Information

DNS namespace iRule commands are now properly accepted with a Link Controller base license.
