Severity: 4-Minor


The platform-migrate option to the UCS load command is supposed to reject UCS archives generated on BIG-IP software v10.x. It does this; however, the hostname of the BIG-IP system changes to the one in the UCS.


The hostname is changed, but no other configuration is modified.


You are trying to do a platform-migrate load to 12.1.2 or 13.0.0 of a UCS originating on a system running v10.x.


Set the hostname back to its old value.

Fix Information

The hostname is now left unmodified.
