Bug ID 1074093: Admin console is displayed when SSH login with a new root user

Last Modified: Mar 30, 2024

Affected Product(s):
F5OS Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Fixed In:
F5OS-C 1.6.0, F5OS-A 1.3.0

Opened: Jan 19, 2022

Severity: 3-Major


Non-root user is allowed to get root role. If any such user exist, they get an admin console instead of root console.


non-root user with role root is restricted. Note: In case of live upgrade from previous to current release, any non-root user with root role may cause upgrade to fail (as non-root users with root role are restricted), and you will need to either delete these users or do a bare metal install before performing a live upgrade.


A new non-root user is created with root role. Example : appliance-1(config)# system aaa authentication users user user_test config username user_test role root



Fix Information

Current fix prevents creation of a non-root user with root role.
