Opened: Oct 17, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

mcpd fails to load the configuration if a pre-11.6.0 configuration has a DHCP virtual server configured using any profile that is not /Common/udp. The following messages appears in /var/log/ltm: 01070095:3: Virtual server /Common/dhcp_relay-p-rd101 lists incompatible profiles. This is because the profile in this case is /Common/fastL4 and is not 'converted' to a DHCP profile.

Impact

mcpd fails to load the configuration. The BIG-IP system will not be operational until the configuration is changed and loaded.

Conditions

-- A pre 11.6.0. -- DHCP-type virtual server configured with a profile other than /Common/udp. -- Upgrade to 11.6.0 or later.

Workaround

Before the upgrade, change the profile to /Common/udp. If you have already upgraded, manually change the bigip.conf file and load the config using the following command: tmsh load /sys config

Fix Information

None
