Severity: 2-Critical


Using the GUI to create a virtual server with a port-list or address-list fails with the following error: 01070096:3: Virtual server <virtual server name> lists profiles incompatible with its protocol.


Virtual server creation fails.


- The virtual server is created with an ip-protocol set to a value other than 'any'. - A port-list or address-list is used.


Create the configuration in tmsh. 1. Create an LTM traffic-matching-criteria object to define the port-list and/or address list. The protocol on the traffic-matching-criteria must be set to the protocol that the virtual server will use. 2. Create the LTM virtual server, and set the traffic-matching-criteria to the name of the traffic-matching-criteria object.

Fix Information

While creating virtual server with port-list from the GUI, a traffic-matching-criteria is created internally and mapped to the virtual server. This ensures that the traffic-matching-criteria object uses the same ip-protocol as the virtual server.
