Severity: 3-Major


tmsh::load command within IApp template triggers transaction within transaction and it is not supported by the MCP. One of the unexpected behavior seen is with the template having ASM policy and LTM policy. IApp framework doesn't let user to reconfigure the application service without turning off strict updates and also on rerunning, breaks association of LTM Policy with ASM Policy


Association b/w LTM Policy and ASM Policy broken


tmsh::load command need to be used in in template to create ASM policy. With this tmsh::create there is no issue seen.


Use tmsh::create or tmsh::modify to create/update ASM policy through IApp template
