Severity: 3-Major


If the configsync IP address of the device is configured to be an IPv6 address, changes in ASM configuration do not synchronize across the cluster.


ASM configuration does not synchronize across the Device Group.


Devices in a Device Group have an IPv6 address set as their configsync IP address.


Set the configsync IP address to be an IPv4 address and restart the asm_config_server process. To restart the asm_config_server process, run the following command: pkill -f asm_config_server
