Is changing master-key impactful?

Does changing the master-key (tmsh modify sys crypto master-key) on a BigIP interrupt operation in any way? Can it be performed on an active device without impact?

My experience was that a tmsh command took effect immediately.

It can be done on a active device. But you should save the config after modifying the master key.

So run # tmsh save /sys config - after that.
