Symptoms

When overwriting a parent policy with import/replace, elements from the parent policy that were deleted remain in the child policies.

Impact

The children on the different devices are left unexpectedly in different states.

Conditions

-- A parent policy exists with a child policy that inherits a section in which new configuration elements can be created in the parent policy (like ip address exceptions). -- An element is deleted from the parent policy, and then the parent policy is exported. -- The parent policy is then imported to replace a parent policy on a different device to perform the same changes on its children.
