Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0,,,,,,, 14.1.2,,,,,,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,, 15.1.0,,,

Opened: Mar 07, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor


When saving the configuration to a UCS file, the process tries save the IPS learning information stored in the MySql database. Because BIG-IP systems with only LTM provisioning (i.e., without AFM licensed) do not have the MySql server running, saving the configuration to a UCS file succeeds, but the system reports a spurious message during the operation: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock.


The error message is cosmetic and has no impact on the UCS save process.


-- Saving the configuration to a UCS file. -- BIG-IP system is provisioned with LTM only.
