The vCMP guest fails to come up.


The vCMP guest fails to come up with an attached N3FIPS partition. Note: This happens only when the host is running v13.1.3.3 and the vCMP guest tries to come up with v13.1.3.3.


-- Using i5820-DF, i7820-DF, or 10350v-F platforms. -- Running BIG-IP software v13.1.3.3 on the hypervisor. -- Once FIPS card is initialized on the hypervisor: 1. Create vCMP guest. 2. Assign FIPS partition (can be default PARTITION_1, or you can resize PARTITION_1 and create a different partition). 3. Change state of vCMP guest to 'deployed'.
