Known Affected Versions:
12.0.0, 12.0.0 HF1, 12.0.0 HF2, 12.0.0 HF3, 12.0.0 HF4

Opened: Mar 31, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A device that is already in the device trust can be re-added by repeating the TMSH command. This can be a 'back door' way to rename the device in the trust and may cause errors in the trust if the rename assigns a duplicate name.

Impact

Can disrupt connections in the trust over which configuration is synchronized.

Conditions

Use of the TMSH command 'modify cm trust-domain' to rename a device already in the trust.

Workaround

Don't use the 'modify cm trust-domain' command as a way to rename the device. To rename a device, use the 'mv cm device' command.

Fix Information

None
