APM resource that has 0xfc (u-umlaut) from 8859-15 in description field is causing error in the Visual Policy Editor resource assignment.


Error on Visual Policy Editor while trying to edit advanced resource assign agent: "Unable to find rootNode 'message' in Load response for 'editActionDialogue'... Dialogue loading has failed."


This occurs when you manually edit an APM resource (hex edit of bigip.conf) and replaces u-umlaut with 0xfc


Do not manually change utf8 characters in APM resource descriptions of of bigip.conf
