Bug ID 636086: Certificates and keys that are copied between BIG-IP do not match on the BIG-IQ

Last Modified: Jul 12, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IQ Configuration - Local Traffic(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
5.1.0, 5.2.0

Opened: Dec 29, 2016

Severity: 4-Minor


Discovering devices with the same keys and/or certificates that were copied from one BIG-IP to another by using the paste text feature will result in conflict during BIG-IQ discovery/import of the second device.


Conflict page will be displayed on the identical keys and/or certificates. During deployment, those identical items will be displayed as different.


Issue applies when multiple devices with the same certificates and/or keys that were copied using the paste text feature in BIG-IP.


When copying a key and/or certificate from on BIG-IP to another without using BIG-IQ, use the "Upload File" option versus the "Paste Text" to import the key and/or certificate to the other device.
