Analytics iApp RPM installation


Change the restjavad.disablerpmtasks sys db variable to false, and then restart restjavad: tmsh modify sys db restjavad.disablerpmtasks value false To restart restjavad on a VIPRION or multi-bladed vCMP guest or multi-bladed F5OS tenant: clsh tmsh restart sys service restjavad To restart restjavad on an appliance or single-slot vCMP guest or F5OS tenant: tmsh restart sys service restjavad NOTE: This will require a cluster sync for any device groups configured for manual config sync. All updated systems will require a restart of restjavad for the change to take affect. After restjavad restarts on all affected devices, you can perform the iApp installation.

Fix Information

By default, the sys db variable restjavad.disablerpmtasks should be "false". When appliance mode is enabled, this DB key is forced to "true".
