Cannot activate certain standalone BIG-IP Virtual Editions from BIG-IQ.


Cannot license the BIG-IP VE from BIG-IQ.


This can occur when attempting to license a BIG-IP Virtual Edition using something other than a version plus license.


Only a license generated from a version plus SKU can be activated from BIQ-IQ. Any SKU that does not end in V12, V13, or V16 is not a version plus SKU and cannot be activated from BIG-IQ. https://support.f5.com/csp/article/k15643
