Severity: 3-Major


As a result of a known issue, configurations containing vlan or tunnels named "default" or "all" are no longer accepted.


A configuration that contained this in earlier versions and upgraded to the affected version will fail to load.


Attempting to configure this will result in a log message similar to the following: root@(f5-ve)(cfg-sync Standalone)(Active)(/Common)(tmos)# create net tunnels tunnel default profile ppp 01070712:3: Cannot create tunnel 'default' in rd1 - ioctl failed: Invalid argument


Change or rename all instances of vlans and/or tunnels named "default" or "all"
