On your v12.0.0 system, take a ucs archive and download it to your desktop.
Upload the ucs archive to your new 12.1.3 i2800 system.

Configure the management IP, interfaces, trunks and vlans on the new system to match the existing system (the names must match exactly). Log in via ssh to the i2800.

As per K82540512, set the Master Key on the new system to match the old system.

Then restore the ucs archive using the "platform-migrate" option:

tmsh load sys ucs platform-migrate

Hi,

You can also add your new hardware in your HA and sync your conf in new i2800 from your i2000 (this is how I proceded)

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K15496

And of course you have to be in the same version old and new hardware.

So Upgrade your i2000 to v12.1.3 to be at the same level as the i2800 (whether you want to follow my procedure or that of S Blakely you must be in the same version).

Keep me in touch if you need help.

Regards,
