Discovery of the Advanced Firewall service may fail with an error message similar to: check if iControl REST service is running on the BIG-IP
The Advanced Firewall service cannot be discovered on the BIG-IQ due to a BIG-IP REST service issue.
A BIG-IP Local Traffic service is already imported on the BIG-IQ and then the Advanced Firewall service is provisioned on the BIG-IP and that service is then discovered by the BIG-IQ.
If the discovery fails with the indicated symptoms, the restjavad service must be restarted on the BIG-IP. The user should log onto the BIG-IP shell and execute the following command: bigstart restart restjavad
