Severity: 3-Major


The BIG-IP system constantly downloads the certificate bundle if the CA-bundle manager config includes a URL. Symptoms are different depending on if BIG-IP systems is in a manual or automatic sync device group. Manual sync device groups will not stay in sync. Automatic sync device groups will constantly sync.


The keymgmtd and mcpd process gets into a loop that causes constant config changes and if the ca-bundle-manager includes a URL, the BIG-IP system constantly downloads the bundle.


The CA-bundle manager is configured.
