Fixed In:

Opened: Jun 01, 2022
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

If a VELOS controller or rSeries appliance is PXE installed with a given ISO, and that ISO is not imported manually on the controller after the installation, future imports may fail or be left in an inconsistent state.

Impact

Confusing import and upgrade failures under conditions that seem like they shouldn't produce issues.

Conditions

1. PXE install VELOS system controller or rSeries appliance 2. Fail to manually import ISO used for PXE install 3. Import other software

Workaround

After PXE installing a VELOS controller, make sure to manually import the ISO used for PXE install before importing any other platform software components.

Fix Information

Better handling for cases where the ISO that is used for PXE install of VELOS controllers is not imported after the install.
