One simple reason that's commonly over looked ; "if the devices time value are far off , they two LTM will show a disconnected stated"
This will keep the two device device-trust from synchronizing since the device-certificate would be to far spread between the two. NTP and clock-sync is a must within a F5-LTM.
Here's a typical f5-ltm error for clock . This system is over 2+ years off.
Using the unix date command ( from within the LTM bash shell ) we will adjust the system clock to the correct time. As soon as the time is corrected, the F5-LTM will reconnect and the disconnected status will vanish.
