Symptoms

Mac OS X Edge client fails to reconnect when the landing virtual server redirects to a new virtual server that doesn't have any server defined in its connectivity profile.

Impact

Edge client will fail to reconnect.

Conditions

-- Mac Edge client is used to establish VPN through an APM that redirects the client to another APM. -- The second APM has no servers configured in its server list in connectivity profile

Workaround

Configure at least one server in the servlist in connectivity profile.

Fix Information

Now the Mac OS X Edge client reconnects successfully in the case that a reconnect operation results in a redirect to a virtual server whose associated connectivity profile lacks a server list.
