Symptoms

After EHF installation, the Linux kernel contains the base installation version only.

Impact

Any new patches/changes present at the new Linux kernel which is part of the Hotfix image will not be effective (run).

Conditions

Hotfix BIG-IP ISO should contain the Kernel RPM.

Workaround

When the fix requires changes to the Linux kernel, install the regular full ISO instead of the hotfix.

Fix Information

Updated the install post scripts to handle new Linux kernel files properly.
