Last Modified: Dec 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM, Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0,,,,,, 14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 14.1.4,,,,,,, 14.1.5,,,,,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,, 15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,, 15.1.5,, 15.1.6,, 15.1.7, 15.1.8,,, 15.1.9,, 15.1.10,,, 16.0.0,, 16.0.1,,

Opened: Oct 24, 2019

Severity: 4-Minor


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)


Upgrade fails when such a profile exists.


-- 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).


-- 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).
