Removing a 'patch' version (X.Y.Z, Z>0) of a platform ISO or services might, under certain conditions, lead to the unexpected removal of the 'base' version (X.Y.0) associated with that patch.


F5OS-C removes software that wasn't explicitly chosen to be removed.


1. A 'patch' ISO is imported when the 'base' associated with the patch is not already imported (example: An F5OS-C 1.2.2 ISO is imported, and F5OS-C1.2.0 is not already imported). 2. Some time later, the F5OS-C 1.2.2 ISO is removed. This also removes the 1.2.0 services.


To work around this issue, import the 'base' version ISO (X.Y.0) before importing any patches. If this is done, removal of a 'patch' will not remove the 'base'. If a 'base' was already removed accidentally, re-importing the 'base' ISO will also make it available again.
