Severity: 4-Minor


After a hand-edit of BIG-IP configuration to modify a datagroup's type, "tmsh load sys config" appears to succeed without error. However, the datagroup type change does not take effect.


Datagroup and the rules which reference it do not behave as expected.


Edit datagroup type by hand.


If feasible, create a new datagroup with the desired type.
