pycontrol to set certificate/key for ssl profile
Sorry for the triple post last question...... My browser appeared to timeout so I thought submission was failing..
I have noticed that it is not possible to create a new profile and set the key,certificate, and passphrase via icontrol. these calls are seperate and would need to be in parallel to be able to work. I have gotten around this in 2 ways.
1) I create a new profile that has the private key, passphrase that I will be using on all ssl profiles. When I use icontrol to create any new profile, I set the default parent profile to the one that I created above and am able to set the cert to whatever I want and avoid the PEM mismatch errors.
2) I can use python and make calls to run bigpipe commands on the f5 as these calls are in parallel and dont have the issue with PEM errors. I use ssh keys for security but I still am not a fan of doing stuff like this.
Does anyone know of a better way to do this? Is there some magic with newer version that dont have this issue in icontrol? I have looked everywhere and found an old cached thread where someone had same issue and F5 stated it wold be fixed in later version, but it is still an issue. Am I stuck with doing it as I am above or is there something better?
