Symptoms

When you load a UCS, you receive an error similar to the following: 01070313:3: Error reading key PEM file /config/filestore/.stage_d/1_d/Common_d/certificate_key_d/:Common:mykey.key_1 for profile /Common/myssl: error:0B080074:x509 certificateroutines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch

Impact

When this occurs, configuration load completely fails.

Conditions

This occurs on any platform using SSL, 11.0.0 and later.

Workaround

If you have not upgraded the BIG-IP system, you can prevent this issue by ensuring the BIG-IP system has SSL certificates/keys residing in only the /config/ssl/ssl.crt or /config/ssl/ssl.key directories and removing any existing copies residing in other directories. If you have encountered this issue, you can modify the UCS archive by removing the incorrect SSL certificates/keys and restoring the UCS archive. For more information, see SOL13534: The BIG-IP system may erroneously import the incorrect SSL certificates or keys to the filestore, available here: http://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/13000/500/sol13534.html.

Fix Information

Configuration load failure no longer occurs during upgrades.
