Your sync-failover device group status says 'Sync Failed' and reports the following error in Device Management :: Overview: Sync error on <device name>: Load failed from /Common/BIG-IP1 0107178a:3: Modifying license.maxcores to a value other than 8 is not allowed.


The device group fails to sync.


-- Non-homogeneous Virtual Edition (VE) configured with different licenses in a device group, or with hardware-based BIG-IP systems. -- License variable perf_VE_cores is different among licenses.


If you are using VEs in a device group, ensure that their licenses are the same.

Fix Information

The license variable perf_VE_cores no longer syncs, so there is no error message.
