F5 Provisioning Error: "a certificate with the same name already exists and Overwrite Key is not checked"

Applies:

F5 LTM Advanced Driver

Trust Protection Platform 14.x and above

Symptom:

When provisioning to F5 devices the following error is displayed:

Install Private key failed, a certificate with the same name already exists and Overwrite key is not checked.

Cause:

When provisioning the same certificate to two different profiles on the same F5, the above error will be seen.

Resolution:

Set the “Overwrite Certificate and Key” to Yes to solve the problem. We use an algorithm to generate the certificate names ourselves, the only time we will see a name collision is when the same certificate is being provisioned more than once. We know of no negative impact from overwriting the certificate and private key.
