Symptoms

When issuing the command 'tmsh show sys version' or viewing the /VERSION file, BIG-IP versions 11.6.3.x show the 'Edition' element as 'Final', not the expected 'Point Release'.

Impact

Possibly misleading indication of whether the installed BIG-IP v11.6.3.x version is a Point Release or not.

Conditions

This occurs on all Point Release versions of BIG-IP v11.6.3.x.

Workaround

The final numeric element in the Version string indicates the Point Release number.
