Severity: 3-Major


The /var/log/ltm contains license processing errors upon license validation failure whenever a significant license event happens (such as a license change). However the system 'corrects' itself if a valid license exists, so no further log messages will be produced.


When a license change occurs, the system logs messages similar to the following: -- err mcpd[11745]: 01180010:3: [license processing][error]: license verification failed. -- err mcpd[11745]: 01180010:3: [license processing][error]: invalid input for license parsing. If you have a valid license, there is no functional impact to the product, and you can safely ignore these messages.


Whenever a significant license event happens, the internal state wipes the previous license representation, which causes some modules to report the license has failed verification.
