When restjavad is unavailable, restnoded restarts continuously until restjavad is available.

Conditions

Part of the update installs restnoded, which was previously unavailable in BIG-IP prior to 12.0 The version of restnoded installed by the framework upgrade exhibits the behavior described.

Workaround

After discovery by BIG-IQ, disable restnoded on the BIG-IP if the customer is not using it.
