Symptoms

TMM may restart when new SAML SSO configuration is created on BIG-IP systems as SAML IdP. This could also happen when BIG-IP is restarted, or a saved configuration containing SAML SSO objects is loaded on running BIG-IP.

Impact

TMM may restart.

Conditions

All of the following - The BIG-IP system is used as SAML IdP - New SAML SSO configuration is added on BIG-IP - Rarely occurring internal tmconf error happens when processing newly added configuration.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

TMM no longer restarts when internal error happens upon adding new SAML SSO configurations. Instead, the system logs the following error in /var/log/apm to indicate problematic configuration object: Internal error processing sso config <name>.
