Severity: 3-Major


When certificate_add_pem_to_bundle() is called to modify a certificate bundle to add certificates to it, it fails and ltm logs a message that the certificate file already exists in the partition. The log signature looks as follows: err mcpd[6590]: 01020066:3: The requested Certificate File (/Common/ca1.crt) already exists in partition Common. The soap faultstring signature looks as follows: <faultstring xsi:type="xsd:string">Exception caught in Management::urn:iControl:Management/KeyCertificate::certificate_add_pem_to_bundle() Exception: Common::OperationFailed primary_error_code : 16908390 (0x01020066) secondary_error_code : 0 error_string : Unknown error 16908390</faultstring>


Unable to add a certificate


This occurs when invoking certificate_add_pem_to_bundle using iControl.
