Severity: 3-Major


After installing a new blade, if the BIG-IP does not have the appropriate images to install all volumes onto the new blade, it can get stuck waiting to install. This may cause mcpd to eventually run out of memory. Running "tmsh show sys software" shows a message similar to this for a prolonged period of time: HD1.2 3 BIG-IP 0.0.10 no waiting for product image (BIG-IP 12.1.3)


Mcpd eventually runs out of memory and cores.


-- Installing a new blade into a chassis-based system. -- Missing BIG-IP image(s) necessary to update all volumes on the new blade.


Either delete the affected volume if it is no longer necessary, or copy the appropriate BIG-IP image to /shared/images.
