Impact

Unexpected behavior occurs because the cipher rule change does not take effect immediately.

Conditions

-- A cipher group is used by an SSL profile. -- One of its cipher rules changes.

Workaround

After changing the cipher rule that's used by a cipher group, make a change to any SSL profile that uses the associated cipher group.

Fix Information

Any changes to a cipher rule or cipher group now takes immediate effect.
