Severity: 4-Minor


Attempting to use a 'replace-all-with' action to replace the devices associated with a GTM/DNS server may fail with the message 'Server (<server_name>) must have at least one device.', if the new devices have the same names as the devices being replaced.


The 'replace-all-with' command fails. No changes are applied to the configuration.


-- A 'replace-all-with' command is used to replace the devices associated with a GTM/DNS server. -- The names of all of the new devices match the names of existing devices.


When performing a 'replace-all-with' on the devices associated with a server, first run a 'replace-all-with' command with a placeholder device whose name does not match any of the devices being replaced or being applied. After this device is created, the intended command can be run.
