When migrating from v12.x to v13.0.x, 13.1.x, or 14.0.x, LTM polices that have rules containing the slash character will not migrate properly, and roll-forward migration will fail.
Roll-forward migration fails with the error: illegal characters in rule name.
-- BIG-IP systems running v12.x. -- Configuration contains LTM Policy rules whose names include the slash (/) character. -- Upgrading to v13.0.x, 13.1.x, or 14.0.x.
Edit the rule names within LTM Policies, replacing the now-illegal slash (/) character with a legal alternative, such as the underscore (_). Alternately, prior to migration, rename the rules on the v12.x system, and then perform the upgrade.
BIG-IP software v12.x Policy rule names containing slashes are properly migrated.
