Symptoms

If a BIG-IP system has Local Traffic Policies defined in a non-Common partition, and the system is upgraded to version 12.1.0, 12.1.1, or 12.1.2, attempting to create a new draft of the policy by selecting "Create Draft" will fail and give an error message similar to: err mcpd[8140]: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Can't associate policy rule (/Partition1/Drafts/policy_name policy_name_policy_rule) folder does not exist

Impact

You cannot modify existing Local Traffic Policies.

Conditions

A system is upgraded to version v12.1.x with Local Traffic Policies in a non-default partition.

Workaround

Manually create a 'Drafts' folder in the appropriate partition, e.g.: tmsh create sys folder /Partition1/Drafts Alternately, create a new (different) policy in the specified partition, and then delete it. Doing this has a side-effect of creating the Drafts folder.
