FIPS Mode LoadMaster unable to import Templates
After upgrading to the LoadMaster v7.1.35 release, errors are displayed when importing templates on FIPS-based LoadMasters only.
When the LoadMaster is in FIPS mode, templates cannot be imported due to a cipher error "Syntax error detected in template file: Cipher set not valid" as shown in the screenshot above.
This can be resolved with the creation of a basic Best Practices XXX cipher set and is easily done via the RESTful API.
Note: The API interface is required to be enabled as shown in the screenshot above (Certificates & Security > Remote Access > Enable API Interface).
With the RESTful API enabled, the following command will create a Best Practices Cipher Set. This can be pasted into a browser window address bar with the LoadMaster IP address appropriately updated:
The XXX is the name give to the new group of ciphers.
This will create a Best Practices cipher set which will allow the successful import of templates.
Note: This is a basic Best Practices cipher set to enable the template functionality and should be appropriately updated before assigning to a Virtual Service and using in a production environment.
