Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
F5OS Velos(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3

Fixed In:
1.2.1, 1.1.4

Opened: Aug 25, 2021
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Under certain circumstances, a version of controller or partition services may appear "not in use" in ConfD/GUI tables, but removal of that version is still blocked because other parts of the service package are still in use by other system components.

Impact

Unable to remove versions of software that appear unused, and the cause is unclear.

Conditions

1. Attempt to remove an (apparently inactive) version of controller or partition services via ConfD or GUI. 2. Other components on the system still silently depend on that version of services, even though ConfD/GUI output does not reflect this.

Workaround

N/A

Fix Information

Removal of platform services that appear "unused" is no longer blocked by hidden higher-level component dependencies
