Severity: 3-Major


If the system is gathering IP intelligence category stats (e.g., by issuing the following command: show security ip-intelligence global-policy ip-intelligence-categories) and simultaneously you issue the command 'load sys config', MCPd might crash while fetching the stats.


MCPd restarts.Traffic disrupted while the daemon restarts.


-- IP intelligence category stats are being fetched. -- The command 'load sys config' is executed.


There is no workaround other than not gathering IP intelligence category stats while the load sys config operation is being performed.

Fix Information
