Opened: Aug 23, 2018

Severity: 2-Critical


The BIG-IP system cannot load base config when upgrading with static IPv4. By default, the configuration is not moved on previous releases during the installation, but it moves mgmt address settings and the license.


Configuration does not load after upgrade.


This occurs during upgrade when a static mgmt IPv4 address is configured.


Manually set the mgmt-dhcp value to 'disabled' in bigip_base.conf file.

Fix Information

The BIG-IP system now loads the base config file as expected when upgrading with static IPv4 as mgmt address.
