TMM restart immediately after removing global ip-intelligence logging publisher.


Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts. This is an intermittent, timing-related issue. Note: Because deleting the global ip-intelligence logging configuration publisher is uncommon, and might occur once, at setup, this issue is unlikely to manifest.


1) Global IP Intelligence logging enabled. 2) While new incoming connections are handled by the system, delete the global logging publisher using the following command: modify security log profile global-network ip-intelligence { log-publisher none }


There is no workaround, other than to not delete the ip-intelligence global logging publisher when heavy traffic is being handled.

Fix Information

Error handling now checks for NULL publisher and prevents the TMM restart.
