The OVA signing certificate that signs BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) OVA files expired. When deploying a BIG-IP VE from an OVA file, an invalid-certificate warning might be displayed due to the expired OVA signing certificate.


There might be questions about the integrity of the OVA file, and in some cases, might not be able to deploy a new instance from an OVA file.


This issue may be encountered during the creation of new instances of BIG-IP VE in clients that check the validity of the OVA signing certificate (e.g., VMware). Note: Existing BIG-IP VE instances are not subject to this issue.



Fix Information

The expired OVA signing certificate has been replaced with a valid signing certificate.
