Fixed In:
12.0.0

Opened: Dec 08, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Attempting to add a Device Management Peer results in either of the following errors: 01020036:3: The requested device (/device1) was not found. Or get_local_device: Exception caught in Management::urn:iControl:Management/Device::get_local_device() Exception: Common::OperationFailed

Impact

The user is not able to add a peer device to the trust domain.

Conditions

This only occurs with the admin account in iControl SOAP after setting the active folder to one that is not partitioned (such as '/'): System.Session.set_active_folder('/')

Workaround

Use an iControl SOAP client to call the following using the admin account: System.Session.set_active_folder('/Common')

Fix Information

Device trust will now request a unique iControl session ID when communicating with peers in order to avoid conflicts with external scripts.
