Bug ID 1044557: Output from the image removal command is confusing and reveals extraneous details

Last Modified: Dec 07, 2023

Affected Product(s):
F5OS Velos(all modules)

Fixed In:
F5OS-C 1.3.0, F5OS-C 1.2.2

Opened: Sep 02, 2021

Severity: 3-Major


When running commands such as "image <controller|partition> remove iso <version>", the error output contains the following message, among other details: "Error: unexpected response back from API: 1"


The error message from these commands is unhelpful to the user and reveals internal implementation details.


The output occurs after you run a command to remove system controller or chassis partition images that are in use. A typical example is when you are trying to remove an ISO that uses OS/service artifacts.



Fix Information

The fix is present in F5OS-C version 1.2.2. The error message is replaced by one of the following (or another more helpful message if more specific information is available): "Error: failed to remove controller image; may be in use" "Error: failed to remove partition image; may be in use"
