Last Modified: Feb 07, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP FPS, Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
16.1.0, 16.1.1, 16.1.2,

Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 03, 2021

Severity: 2-Critical


On a BIG-IP system with FPS JS engine Live Update, after upgrade to 16.1.x , the old live update is not replaced by the engine in the build.


In upgrade from 15.1 or older, this sometimes results in the device staying offline.


-- BIG-IP with FPS JS engine Live Update -- Upgrade to 16.1.x -- FPS / DataSafe / AWAF provisioned.


Installing a new, 16.1 FPS Engine update will fix the issue (where available). Alternatively, running these commands fixes the issue, but results in the BIG-IP going offline for a few minutes. rm -rf /var/datasync/updates/* touch /etc/datasync/regenerate_all tmsh -q -c 'cd datasync-global/; delete security datasync update-file update-file-versafe_js*' bigstart restart tmm
