Opened: Aug 14, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

On BIG-IP 10000-series appliances with LOP/LBH firmware version 6.04 or later installed, removal or insertion of a power supply (PSU) may not result in the correct status being updated/shown by the 'tmsh show sys hardware' or 'system_check -d' commands. [See also ID456542.]

Impact

Unable to reliably determine correct PSU status after removal/insertion.

Conditions

BIG-IP 10000-series appliances running BIG-IP software versions prior to 11.5.0, with LOP/LBH firmware version 6.04 or later installed.

Workaround

On BIG-IP v11.4.1, it may be possible to accurately refresh the PSU state by restarting the lopd and chmand daemons: bigstart restart lopd chmand On earlier versions of BIG-IP, a full system reboot or hard power-cycle may be required to accurately reflect the changed PSU state.

Fix Information

This updated LBH firmware v6.09 correctly reports PSU (power supply) status after PSU removal or insertion on BIG-IP 10000-series appliances running BIG-IP versions prior to 11.5.0.
