Opened: Mar 27, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Install a large iApps LX package on a VIPRION system, such as the "diameter" package, which installs roughly 20 MB of files. Then, within the next 10 minutes, remove or disable the new primary blade. The new primary blade may not have a complete copy of the package in /var/config/rest/iapps.

Impact

The new iApps LX package may be unusable with the new VIPRION primary blade.

Conditions

-- VIPRION is in use. -- Install a large iApps LX package. -- The VIPRION primary blade has been disabled.

Workaround

After installing a large iApps LX package, allow the current primary blade to remain the primary for at least 10 minutes, so that it can synchronize the files to the other blades. If this is not possible, then re-install the iApps LX package on the new blade.

Fix Information
