When attempting to start a bulk re-import and re-discovery, the process does not start. No progress indicator or error dialog is shown.
A Bulk Re-import and Re-discovery that includes affected BIG-IP devices will not work, but will silently fail to start.
This occurs when one or more of the BIG-IP devices selected for re-import has had its machineId changed in the past, often due to being RMAed or rebuilt.
The affected BIG-IP devices cannot be re-imported using the Bulk Re-Import and Re-Discover feature, but can be re-imported individually. Affected BIG-IP devices can be identified by querying the device state and looking at the fields "uuid" and "machineId". Affected devices have different values in these fields, while unaffected devices have identical values for the two fields.
