Error: Install Certificate () failed with error: A filename is required for this operation

Applies To:

All versions of Director and TPP, and the F5 Application

Symptom:

When trying to process a certificate and using an F5 Application you may get the error:

F5 error:  Install Certificate () failed with error: A filename is required for this operation

Cause:

  1. The Certificate was set to generate the Key and CSR on the application. The value on the certificate settings tab was set to YES.
  2. The certificate was not yet associated to an F5 application

When generating the key on the application we attempt to connect at stage 300 to generate the key and CSR. If you don’t have your application configured, we cannot connect to do the work. This is an uncommon setting and is typically only used if your Application requires it due to its own limitations.

Resolution

  1. Change your setting on your certificate settings tab to generate the CSR and key on app = NO

OR

  1. Configure your application so that we can properly connect to it.
