Symptoms

In /var/log/ltm the following messages are logged: Warning generated : License does not support the TurboFlex profile chosen. TurboFlex profile set to base.

Impact

Only FPGA features in the TurboFlex base profile will be supported on the platform. Should not have any impact on normal operations. This is as-designed behavior. TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated (FPGA) features that are associated with a specific use case. TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated features that are dependent on module licensing. If BIG-IP LTM is licensed and provisioned, then the ADC profile is available. If BIG-IP AFM is licensed and provisioned, then the Security profile is available. TurboFlex Profiles are supported only in platforms running a high performance license (x800). Also, TurboFlex Profile availability varies depending on the platform series tier.

Conditions

-- This happens on ix600 platforms (e.g., i2600 and i4600 platforms) with the standard pay-as-you-go (PAYG) license. -- TurboFlex profile is set to something other than base in the BIG-IP configuration.

Workaround

None.
