Symptoms

Creating 'ssl-mode dedicated' guests on the BIG-IP i5800, the 5th guest and beyond get an error, however they do become deployed with Status of 'running'.

Impact

5th guest and beyond result in an error.

Conditions

-- Creating 5 (or more) 'ssl-mode dedicated' vCMP guests. -- Running on the BIG-IP i5800 platform.

Workaround

There is no workaround other than not creating more than 4 'ssl-mode dedicated' vCMP guests when provisioning vCMP guests on the i5800 platform.

Fix Information

The system now limits the maximum number of 'ssl-mode dedicated' vCMP guests to the number that the BIG-IP i5800 can physically support.
