iRule Editor - error when saving bigip.conf

We've just upgraded one of our LTMs to v11, but I'm getting an error when I try to save bigip.conf from the iRule Editor.




Here's the error (OCR on screenshot):



Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click


Continue. the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If


you click Quit. the application will close immediately.

  • Hi Arie, I got your message but got funneled through to my hotmail email address which is tied to one of my test accounts and couldn't find a way to reply to you.



    I believe the forum posting issues are addressed so you should be good there.



    With regards to the bigip.conf saving, that's likely a permission issue with the account you are using within iControl. Are you using an Admin level account or just a guest? If it's a guest-level then odds are there are no write permissions. You can find out the type of account you have from the admin GUI "Users" section. I'm running with an "admin" account and it works fine.



    If this persists, then you might want to open a ticket with product support.

    No problem - now that the forum is working again we can communicate that way.




    I'm an admin on the box (with Advanced Shell).
