Severity: 3-Major


When the BIG-IP system is upgraded to a version whose minor version number is not '0' (e.g., 14.1.2.x), the supported BIG-IP version check in DHD fails and reports an error message, for example: Unsupported BIG-IP version "". Please upgrade to BIG-IP "14.1.0".


Invalid error message is seen in the System :: About page. DHD functionality is not affected, and you can safely ignore this message.


The BIG-IP software minor version number is not 0 (zero).
