Symptoms

After creating a dynamic BWC policy and changing it to static causes configuration load to fail.

Impact

Changing dynamic BWC policy to static causes configuration load to fail.

Conditions

Change the BWC policy from dynamic enabled to dynamic disabled.

Workaround

Instead of changing the BWC policy from dynamic to static or vice versa, delete the earlier policy and recreate the policy using the same name, but with the dynamic flag as required.

Fix Information

Changing a dynamic BWC policy to static is not allowed from GUI.

Behavior Change

Once a BWC policy is created, it can not be changed from dynamic to static (or vice-versa). The edit operation does not support dynamic flag update. You must delete and re-create the policy with the dynamic flag changed.
