Kemp Load Master Template Creation Error

Written by Luke Smith. Posted in Microsoft


You download a Kemp Template such as the Exchange 2016 Templates, then uploaded into the virtual service template gallery on your Kemp device. When you then try and create a Virtual Service using the Template you receive error:
“cannot create VIP”


It’s likely the template you have download is using a feature not supported by your device such as Edge Security Protection (ESP), Web Application Firewall (WAF) or your Device is not on the supported Firmware version.

Delete the templates installed on the Kemp and Download the Templates support by your Device and Firmware revision.
Update the Firmware to support the Templates downloaded.

Typically this issue is caused by the mailbox containing corrupt rules or out of office.


From Powershell execute the following to determine the error.

Typically the issue relates to corrupt outlook rules

Get-Inboxrule – Mailbox “name”
Get-MailboxAutoReplyconfiguration – identity “name”

If these fail open outlook with the following switch

  1. outlook.exe /cleanrules
  2.  View the users rules and auto reply
    – you may recieve errors if you do just continue
  3. Close outlook
  4. Reopen outlook
  5. Confirm you have no errors
  6. Re-run the powershell commands above and then move the mailbox.
