Opened: Oct 24, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

During configuration load after upgrade, you encounter an error: Syntax Error:(/config/bigip.conf at line: 6317) one or more configuration identifiers must be provided (Note: pointing to the line where the DoS application profile is created)

Impact

Upgrade fails when such a profile exists.

Conditions

-- DoS profile including application profile is created. -- Profile name is the same as one of the profile's attributes. -- Configuration is being loaded from configuration file (for example during upgrade).

Workaround

-- Change profile name before upgrade. -- If you have already upgraded, change the profile name in bigip.conf file (the internal name of the application profile is enough).

Fix Information

None
