Opened: Mar 13, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A 'load sys config verify merge' may return successfully, but 'load sys config merge' without the 'verify' argument might fail.

Impact

False positive might be received in response to a successful config verify. However, the syslog system is not actually configured during a 'verify', so it does not report errors.

Conditions

Running the 'load sys config merge' without the 'verify' argument.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

None
