Severity: 4-Minor


The engineID is supposed to be unique per device; however, it is possible to configure the engineID directly and it will synchronize across the device trust to multiple devices.


The engine ID of a device is not unique.


The user has configured a numeric engineID through use of the tmsh sys include directive.


Do not hard code a numeric engine ID. If you do not want to use the generated engine ID then, configure engine ID type and a unique ID will be generated even when the configuration is synchronized.
