Severity: 3-Major


GTM config fails to load, and posts an error similar to the following: Syntax Error:(/config/bigip_gtm.conf at line: 47) the "create" command does not accept wildcard configuration identifiers


GTM config fails to load.


GTM server virtual server name contains a backslash (\) character.


Edit bigip_gtm.conf manually and add the \ character. Important: The system removes the \ (which results in further validation failures) in response to any of the following actions: -- Load the GTM config. -- Make changes to the GTM config, and you or the system saves it. -- cpcfg operation. -- Upgrade the system.
