System reports errors about coapi in /var/log/ltm when modifying a per-request policy in the Visual Policy Editor (VPE). err coapi: PHP: requested conversion of uninitialized member.


The impact can vary by version. -- In some versions it represents a stray error log. -- In other versions the 'Accepted Languages' in the Logon Page agent does not have the full list. -- In other versions, there are server 500 errors when modifying agents.


-- The per-request policy being modified is attached to the virtual server. -- Using VPE.


To work around this issue, perform the following procedure: 1. Remove the per-request policy from the virtual server. 2. Modify the policy. 3. Add the policy back to the virtual server.

Fix Information

Now per-request access policies can be simultaneously used and edited without causing spurious 'coapi' log errors.
