After upgrading to BIG-IQ 5.4.0 and booting into the new volume, the BIG-IQ CLI displays a "STORAGE_UPGRADE_FAILED" error message and user interface displays "Waiting for BIG-IQ services to become available..." The tokuupgrade log also displays the following message: TypeError: Cannot read property 'attackTypeReference' of undefined


Upgrades cannot be completed successfully on the configuration.


This can happen if the previous configuration on the BIG-IQ has an ASM signature set created by manually selecting individual signatures rather than through a filter.



Fix Information

This release includes a fix that works properly on signature sets without filters.
