BigIP uses cert-ldap for admin access, however, Big-IQ can't communicate with BigIP now.


Hopefully someone has encountered this issue. Running Big IP 14.x, and have successfully configured it to use cert-ldap (Remote ClientCert LDAP), thus at the GUI admin access, the F5 will prompt for a client certificate, and that's how we gain access to the F5. However, now when BigIQ attempts to communicate with this BigIP, it can no longer communicate. The BigIQ appears to make a rest api call via 443, and the BigIP is expecting a client certificate, which the BigIQ isn't presenting. Anyone know a work around?


For REST API authentication with cert I don't think this is possible but maybe ask f5. Till then try to have a local account that BIG-IQ can use maybe see:
