F5OS will not import system images copied into /var/import/staging/ using WinSCP. The file will be present on the filesystem, but the system will not process and validate them. On older software versions (prior to F5OS-C 1.3.0 and F5OS-A 1.1.0), the image will remain stuck in an "In Queue" state.


The images cannot be used for F5OS software installs.


Importing F5OS system images (F5OS-C controller and chassis partition images and F5OS-A system images) to /var/import/staging/.


After importing the images, log in to the F5OS device as root and run touch against the newly-uploaded files. For instance: touch /var/import/staging/F5OS-C-1.4.0-4112.CONTROLLER.iso
