Event Timeline

Can you share configuration that you are deleting? So far, I can't reproduce error

Error implies that firewall failed to configure on boot as mangle table is missing. Any logs/config trace from boot?

Thanks, Not really sure what happened, but I deleted config.boot and rebooted, Now it works to add a policy again.
