Severity: 4-Minor


If an unmanaged BIG-IP device is licensed from BIG-IQ, and later it is discovered and imported, the "Device Type" in the license pool on BIG-IQ shows the device as unmanaged, even if it is discovered and imported.


There is no real impact on the device management. It only makes the user confusing when looking at the device type on the license pool page.


The device is licensed first, and then discovered and imported.


Discover and import the BIG-IP device first before you license it.
