F5OS Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3, 1.1.4

Opened: Sep 01, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

After upgrading the system to version 1.1.4 and old chassis partition images are removed from the system, tenants might not start up correctly after a reboot of the blade hosting the chassis partition.

Impact

Tenants will not start correctly, will not pass traffic, or be accessible on their management interfaces.

Conditions

This might occur if the tenant was started after the system was upgraded to an interim release (such as 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3), after originally running version 1.1.0.

Workaround

To work around this issue: 1. Upgrade the system controller to 1.1.4. 2. Wait for the system controller upgrade to complete. 3. Upgrade the chassis partition(s) to 1.1.4. 4. Wait for chassis partition upgrade(s) to complete. 5. Configure all tenants to return to the "Provisioned" state. 6. Wait for all tenants to stop. 7. Configure all tenants back to the "Deployed" state. 8. Remove the old chassis partition and system controller software versions.

Fix Information
