Severity: 3-Major


The BIG-IP system fails to prevent control characters from being embedded within GTM object names. Once the objects exist in the configuration, big3d fails to mark the resource up due to XML parsing error. The following GTM objects are susceptible to this control character issue: - gtm datacenter - gtm prober-pool - gtm device - gtm application - gtm region entry - gtm virtual server - gtm server - gtm link - gtm pool


The resource whose name having those control characters will not be marked up with big3d error messages: warning big3d[5729]: 012b2004:4: XML parsing error not well-formed (invalid token) at line 21.


A GTM object with a control character in the name.


Remove control characters prior to creating GTM objects.
