BIG-IP i5820-DF reboot takes 15~ minutes

I have F5 VEs as well as physical F5s. My physicals are the i5820s. Whenever they are booting, it takes roughly 15-20 minutes to come up. With my VEs it takes maybe 5 minutes. After discussing with other F5 users as well as listening to an instructor, it seems that the boot length for my physicals is oddly long. Has anyone seen this?

That should not happen.... Have a support case opened and investigate.

If possible, get inside the GRUB menu and do an EUD.

 

Possible of RMA could happen.

My only hesitation with it being hardware and possibly an RMA is that this is the same across all of our physical F5's. We currently have 6 5820s and it's the same across them all.

The appliance -DF contain FIPS, this feature could take more time to crypt all the informations inside. After 15-20 min it starts and works well or with error? How many VS do you have inside? How use FIPS, HSM features?

We are in FIPS mode. That could very well be what it is but I believe they were that way prior to STIG implementation. It does start well with zero errors while running that I'm aware of. Very few virtual servers. Overall load is small.

Can you open a F5 support case and rule this out.​

That's the current plan to rule out STIGs as well as a few other things. Was hoping that someone here might have seen something similar. ​

It normal behavior of this appliance ​i5820-DF. Open the support case if you have anything else issue.
