Where are Certifcates located within BigIP F5 v11.x ?

Within v11.x of LTM/GTM BigIP certificates are located within a folder called 'certificate_d' under the necessary partition folder. i.e

/config/filestore/files_d/Common_d/certificate_d

By default everything is placed within the common partition folder 'Common_d'. Below shows an example

root@gtm:Active:Standalone] # ls -l /config/filestore/files_d/Common_d/certificate_d
total 32
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    33 Sep 30 02:52 :Common:ca-bundle.crt_1 -> /config/ssl/ssl.crt/ca-bundle.crt
