Symptoms

The user configuration set (UCS) configuration file may fail to load due to the global server load balancing (GSLB)-referenced virtual server name syntax. The system posts errors similar to the following: 01070226:3: Pool Member 20002 references a nonexistent Virtual Server.

Impact

Unable to create GTM Pool Member from TMSH, or to load a configuration with this object in it.

Conditions

This issue occurs when all of the following conditions are met: -- You have configured your BIG-IP DNS system (formerly known as BIG-IP GTM) with a virtual server name that includes the colon (:) character. -- The virtual server is included as a GSLB pool member. -- You save the configuration to a UCS file. -- You attempt to load the UCS configuration file.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Fixed issue related to parsing of GTM Pool member names that prevents the use of GTM virtual servers or GTM servers with a colon (:) in the name from being used as a GTM pool member.
