Opened: May 09, 2014
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Unable to install an ISO software images or hotfixes using iControl REST.

Impact

The system posts an error: Operation is not supported on component /sys/software/image, and the operation fails.

Conditions

Using iControl REST to install software images or hotfixes.

Workaround

The example in the iControl REST user's guide incorrectly states you should use the 'image' parameter: POST /mgmt/tm/sys/software { "command":"install", "image":"BIG-IP-11.5.0.930.400.iso", "volume":"HD1.3" } Instead, use 'name' and it will work: POST /mgmt/tm/sys/software { "command":"install", "name":"BIG-IP-11.5.0.930.400.iso", "volume":"HD1.3" }

Fix Information

None
