Severity: 2-Critical


The configuration of HA/DSC is done over an iControl connection between two BigIPs that is initiated by the devmgmtd daemon. The daemon is hard coded to use port 443 for this communication.


A device trust cannot be configured


Devices that do not have connections over port 443



Fix Information

With the fix to this bug there are two cases. If you change the httpd ssl-port while in a trust then the change is sync'ed to all devices in the trust. If you change this value on a standalone device and want to create a trust then, you must change the value on each target device first and then create the trust by adding each device.
