Severity: 3-Major


If cm device-group name on BIG-IP is a subset of a hostname of a BIG-IP in group then config may not be parsed correctly.


BIG-IQ fails to manage device correctly.


Cm device-group name is part hostname example: BIG-IP device-group spain-madrid BIG-IQ Cluster group name spain-madrid hostname spain-madrid-bigip1.example.com


Rename device-group to a unique name. remove BIG-IPs from BIG-IQ config On BIG-IP 1) create new empty device group 2) move devices out of old device-group 3) put devices in new device group 4) del old device group 5 perform initial sync On BIG-IQ discover devices
