We did a test migration from our current cluster which is two BIG-IP 2200 to a new virtual one
The current cluster is running version BIG-IP v188.8.131.52 (Build 0.0.8) and the new one is running version BIG-IP v184.108.40.206 (Build 0.0.8)
The migration itself went through without any problems, used platform-migrate and no-license options
Can see that all the config has been moved over fine, but the problem is that the BIG-IP refuse to go to online status
It also shows a banner saying "This device is not operational because the loaded configuration contained errors or unlicensed objects. Please adjust the configuration and/or the license, and re-license the device."
Have activated a new license which it says is ok. so its likely something in the configuration thats the problem
Does anyone have any suggestion where we should look as it doesnt say which part of the configuration it doesnt like

To identify the configuration problem, try this
tmsh load sys config verify
Tried that and got some warnings regarding a iRule
/Common/ProxyPass:118: warning: [unmatched closing character][}]
/Common/ProxyPass:124: warning: [use curly braces to avoid double substitution][[regexp -nocase $regex "$orig_host$orig_uri" 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9]]
Removed it and now the validation goes through without any warnings
But its still in offline status
Any other suggestion what we can look after?

Yes, restart all services and BIG-IP configuration.
tmsh restart sys service all tmsh load sys config
The restart of the services didnt help and the 2nd command just reset everything to default.
I went online again but all the config is gone so we havent solved anything
Did a new migration but its still offline after that.
Is there any logs I can check for errors?
What the var/log/ltm says ?
After your migration, try a tmsh load sys config to reload the bigip.conf and check the warnings.
