Does BIG-IP have a root account lock when the password expires?

We log in to BIG-IP from the server with SSH and automatically execute a certain regular job.

At that time, the user is logged in with key authentication without using a password as root, but "Your password has expired. The server failed with the error log "Password change required but no TTY available."

Does BIG-IP have a root account lock when the password expires? And is there a workaround?

Hello dum0785.

 

Are you using external authentication to log into the F5 device?

External accounts could be expiring. In that case, you should renew them in your external auth server.
