Introduced : BIG-IP_v11.2.0
Gets the error string indicating the prerequisite errors for a template. A blank string indicates no errors. A non-blank error string means that there are prerequisites for the template that are not met on that machine, and creating a system application object from that template on that machine will result in an exception. Note that the contents of the error string are meant to be human readable. While the presence of a non-blank error string can be used programmatically, the contents should only be used for non-programmatic purposes.
