Opened: Apr 29, 2014
Severity: 2-Critical


The default VE disk space of 100 GB is not enough to support more than one installed image when both APM and SWG are installed and provisioned.


An attempt to install a new release or a hotfix on the second default volume fails with a disk-full error message.


This issue is specific to VE versions 11.5.0 and 11.5.1.


Stop VE and increase the size of the VE disk to at least 124 GB. Then restart VE. For information on how to increase VE disk size, see SOL14952: Extending disk space on BIG-IP Virtual Edition, available here: http://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/14000/900/sol14952.html.

Fix Information

The default VE disk space is now 124 GB, which supports the installation of more than one image when both APM and SWG are installed and provisioned.
