Severity: 3-Major


When trying to add a 11.5.x device from BIG-IQ v5.0.0, the operation fails with the error "could not upgrade REST framework" if the BIG-IP does not allow TLSv1 in its httpd config.


BIG-IQ fails to discover the device from the UI.


SSLv3 and TLSv1 have been disabled on BIG-IP by use of the tmsh command modify sys httpd ssl-ciphersuite "DEFAULT:!SSLv3:!TLSv1"


The framework can be manually upgraded using /usr/lib/dco/packages/upd-adc

Fix Information

The list of ssl-ciphercuites used for updating the 11.5.x framework has been expanded to include newer TLS protocols.
