A deployment task may fail when changes involve Signature Sets, due to a deadlock on the BIG-IP.


Deployment failures.


The issue happens when a Signature File Update operation is performed while the deployment task is also running. Note - BIG-IQ itself will not perform a Signature File Update task during deployment operations to the BIG-IP.


Wait for the Signature File Update operation to complete and re-deploy, or avoid deployment when Signature File Update operations are running. Note that the BIG-IP supports scheduling of Signature File Update operations.
