Opened: Sep 29, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


When upgrading to or loading saved configuration on BIG-IP software v13.0.0 or later, if the configuration contains AVR widgets created under a partition of '[All]', the config load fails.


Upgrading to or loading an affected configuration on BIG-IP v13.x or later fails.


This occurs if one or more AVR widgets in the configuration was created under the read-only '[All]' pseudo-partition. This could have occurred if you were running a version of BIG-IP which did not include the fix for ID 721408.


Manually edit the /config/bigip.conf configuration file and change '[All]' to 'Common': # sed -i 's/\\\[All\]/Common/g' /config/bigip.conf # tmsh load sys config # tmsh save sys config This should be done before upgrading to BIG-IP v13.x or later, or before saving configuration to be loaded later, or before loading a saved configuration from the config files.

Fix Information

It is possible to successfully upgrade from or load a configuration containing one or more AVR widgets created under the read-only '\[All]' pseudo-partition or under other not existing partitions. With the current fix all partitions are changed to "Common" during upgrade.
