Symptoms

Systems licensed with an ADF SKU might reboot repeatedly after licensing. This is due to a prior defect in the licenses delivered to these systems. The clear indication of this problem is the duplication of a number of feature flags in /config/bigip.license, most importantly perf_CPU_frequency. Note that the flag is listed twice, which causes the total value to be twice the expected value. # Accumulated Tokens for Modules # ADF, Aperf_CPU_frequency 1200000 key AAAAAAA-AAAAAAA # ADF, Aperf_CPU_frequency 1200000 key AAAAAAA-AAAAAAA # # Accumulated Tokens for Modules # ADF, Aperf_SSL_total_TPS 563 key AAAAAAA-AAAAAAA # ADF, Aperf_SSL_total_TPS 563 key AAAAAAA-AAAAAAA # perf_CPU_frequency : 2400000 perf_SSL_total_TPS : 1126

Impact

The system reboots repeatedly after applying one of these licenses.

Conditions

This might be observed if the system is running an ADF license which was first activated before 1/30/2014 (January 30, 2014).

Workaround

Obtain a new registration key for the license package you purchased previously. Activate the new registration key.
