Opened: Aug 22, 2017

Severity: 3-Major


Configuration sync fails, generating an error similar to the following: Caught configuration exception (0), Values (self-IP) specified for self IP (<name>): foreign key index (fw_enforced_policy_FK) do not point at an item that exists in the database..


Sync operation fails.


-- There is another object, such as a firewall policy, that references a self IP address. -- The self IP address is non-syncable; that is, its traffic group is set to 'traffic-group-local-only'.


Set the self IP address' traffic group to a value other than 'traffic-group-local-only', and then force a full load push from the first device.

Fix Information

If a traffic group is non-syncable, modifying its traffic group to a syncable value (anything other than 'traffic-group-local-only') now causes the system to suggest synchronization.
