Severity: 4-Minor


If a logging profile has a TAB character in its name, the name does not get double-quoted in bigip.conf, so configuration load fails.


Configuration loading failure upon next boot.


Copy-pasting the logging profile name including a leading TAB character.


Copy-paste only the name (without the TAB character).

Fix Information

Leading whitespaces (including TAB characters) are trimmed at profile creation, so the condition that caused the issue is eliminated.
