    I opened a ticket with F5 support and Peter (from London) helped me out.


    The procedure I was using to reset the master key was to issue the command "tmsh modify sys crypto master-key prompt-for-password" and then use the hash from the guest as the password. The correct procedure is to use "f5mku -r <hash>" on the new guest. After doing that, the UCS file was able to load.

    tmsh modify sys db avr.stats.internal.maxentitiespertable value 1024

    tmsh modify sys db provision.extramb value 2048;tmsh save sys config

    tmsh modify sys db restjavad.useextramb value true

    tmsh modify sys db provision.tomcat.extramb value 100
