Severity: 3-Major


Attempts to activate or reactivate the license on the BIG-IP system results in failure messages.


The system is either unusable or very difficult to activate.


No specific configurations are associated with this issue, but license activation/reactivation requests that include add-ons are more likely to fail. This occurs under random conditions.


Because the conditions under which this issue occurs are random, additional licensing attempts might succeed.
