In rare cases after a software version upgrade, a corrupted symbolic link that points to a nonexistent file may exist. Processes that try to use the file will fail, often generating the message 'No such file or directory'.
A symlink is broken, but it depends on whether the symlink is necessary to BIG-IP operation as to whether a problem will be immediately apparent.
Happens after an upgrade. This rarely encountered issue occurs when the symlink points to an absolute path (/a/b/c/d) rather than a relative one (if you are in /a/b, then the target would be c/d).
If creating a symlink is necessary, use a relative path rather than an absolute one. If this condition is found, use the following command to rebuild the symlink: ln -fs <target> <symlink_name>
