    Hello Sarlindo.

    As I said in my previous response :-), 'profiles' option is a 'replace-all-with' action, so you have to introduce a complete list of profiles to assign on the VS.

    In the documentation states this:

    "List of profiles (HTTP, ClientSSL, ServerSSL, etc) to apply to both sides of the connection (client-side and server-side) ... If you want to remove a profile from the list of profiles currently active on the virtual, simply remove it from the profiles list".


    • With AP profile: {{ tcp http myaccess-prof }}
    • Without AP profile: {{ tcp http }}

    So, your variable "ans_f5_access_profile" should be a complete list with all the profiles assigned to the VS.

    If this was helpful, I will appreciate if you mark my answer as 'the best' to help other people to find it ;-).
