Severity: 3-Major


If you are doing platform-migrate from a hardware device to a Virtual Edition (VE) guest, and the UCS that came from the hardware device has a QinQ VLAN configuration, then the upgrade will fail.


The UCS load will fail and generate an error: 01071bd8:3: The tag-mode for requested member <VLAN name> has to be 'none' on platforms that do not support QinQ. Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.


-- VLAN with a QinQ configuration exists on the hardware configuration. -- UCS file is saved on the hardware device. -- UCS is copied to a VE guest. -- Attempt to load the configuration using the following command: load sys ucs <UCS filename> no-license platform-migrate.



Fix Information

The configuration now loads successfully, disables QinQ on the associated VLAN, and warns that this action was automatically taken.
