    This issue affects: Load Balancer for IPv4 version 8.5.5
    users, Load Balancer Content Based Routing (CBR) version 8.5.5
    and 9.0 and Load Balancer Site Selector (SS) version 8.5.5 and
    9.0. The Load Balancer for IPv4 and IPv6 experienced the same
    issue and was fixed under PI88624.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixpack installation has been modified to prevent the
    default.cfg file from being overwritten during fixpack
    installation.
    
    You must have the minimal fix level listed below applied
    before the change will occur on subsequent fixpack
    installations.
    8.5.5.14
    9.0.0.8
    Once the component is upgraded to 8.5.5.14, 9.0.0.8 or higher,
    subsequent fixpack installations will not overwrite
    default.cfg
    

Temporary fix

  • Save default.cfg before installing maintenance and restore
    after installation.
