F5 Journeys Migration Deployment Failure

Hello all,

I'm migrating configurations off a pair of BIG-IP 5050 appliances to new R2800's devices. The 5050's are running code version 15.1.5 and the rseries For some reason, I'm getting the error below when attempting to migrate the UCS file with Journeys:

Any ideas?

  • Franky-frank-reg7 - is this next steps you are trying to take from a previous question?
    Which also seems like it was not yet resolved

    If you are still stuck I'll see if I can find an internal SME to help.
    If you happen to have already opened a support ticket for this I'll add that to the escalation.

      Hi LiefZimmerman 

      Yes, exactly no one answered the first question. I tried to take a step ahead and got stuck on the second question. No support cases opened as they typically only do break fix I thought support wouldn't help with this.

        OK - I'll see if I can locate someone internally who can provide some guidance.
