You cannot select Port Misuse Policies from the menu but if you select Service Policies from the Network menu Port Misuse Policies, you can still create them from the upper horizontal Tabs. Changes are saved to the configuration file but are ignored.


The system indicates that a Port Misuse Policy is in effect when it is not.


-- AFM is not provisioned. -- You select Service Policies in the GUI.


When AFM is not provisioned Port Misuse Policy should not be available

Fix Information

Removed Port Misuse Policy from upper Tabs if AFM is not provisioned, so this issue no longer occurs.
