Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP WAM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
16.0.0,, 16.0.1,,, 16.1.0, 16.1.1, 16.1.2,,, 16.1.3,,,

Opened: Sep 02, 2020
Severity: 3-Major


If a BIG-IP is on version 13.1.0 through 15.1.x and has profiles in use that use wam-tcp-wan-optimized and/or wam-tcp-lan-optimized as parent profiles, then when the configuration is upgraded to 16.0.0, the configuration fails to load, with an error similar to: err mcpd[10087]: 01020036:3: The requested parent profile (/Common/wam-tcp-wan-optimized) was not found.


Configuration does not load.


-- Upgrading from version 13.1.0 through 15.1.x. -- Using profiles derived from wam-tcp-wan-optimized and/or wam-tcp-lan-optimized.


Remove these profiles and adjust the configuration elements that use them accordingly. Here are two examples: -- Copy the definition of 'wam-tcp-wan-optimized' from /defaults/wam_base.conf into /config/bigip.conf, and then reload the configuration. -- Change the references to wam-tcp-wan-optimized to something else in your config file (e.g., tcp-wan-optimized), and then reload the configuration.
