Symptoms

AEST, AEDT, ACDT, ACWST, ACWDT, AWST, Asia/Muscat, and AWDT time zones prevent configuring trust with a peer device using the GUI.

Impact

Adding a peer device using the GUI fails.

Conditions

-- Setting a BIG-IP system timezone to AEST, AEDT, ACDT, ACWST, ACWDT, AWST, Asia/Muscat, or AWDT. -- Using the GUI to add a peer device to a trust configuration.

Workaround

You can use either of the following workarounds (you might find the first one easier): -- Temporarily set the device timezone to a non-affected timezone (e.g.; UTC), establish trust, and set it back: 1. Navigate to System :: Platform. 2. Under 'Time Zone', select 'UTC', and click 'Update' 3. Repeat steps one and two to change all devices that are to be part of the trust domain. 4. Establish device trust by navigating to Device Management :: Device Trust :: Add all peers to be part of the trust domain. 5. Once trust is established, navigate to System :: Platform, and change Time Zone back to preferred time zone. -- Use tmsh to add a peer device in these timezones: AEST, AEDT, ACDT, ACWST, ACWDT, AWST, Asia/Muscat, or AWDT.
