Last Modified: Dec 29, 2022

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
F5OS F5OS, Velos(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
1.2.0, 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.5.0

Fixed In:
1.5.1

Opened: Aug 23, 2022
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

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.

Impact

The images cannot be used for F5OS software installs.

Conditions

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

Workaround

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

Fix Information

F5OS will correctly import system images copied with WinSCP.
