Opened: Sep 24, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Traffic intelligence (cec) uses load sys config on each hitless upgrade. This may cause configuration load to fail if the configuration has some errors, and hence virtual servers may go down.

Impact

System may go offline if the configuration has errors.

Conditions

When the system triggers manual or automatic hitless upgrade for traffic classification.

Workaround

Disable automatic hitless upgrade for traffic intelligence.

Fix Information

Update the hitless upgrade scripts to avoid load sys config while loading new IM package. Now, IM will load only the new classification_update.conf file as a part of hitless upgrade.
