Opened: Aug 02, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When installing a 2nd, 3rd, (or more) version of BIG-IP to a Virtual Edition (VE) instance, the sizes of the non-shared volumes may be smaller than the first. This can be an issue if, for example, /var is smaller and fills up due to UCS archives, data gathered during troubleshooting, etc.

Impact

Disk volumes may run out of space sooner than expected, leading to issues when that space is needed for other operations.

Conditions

Install an additional version of BIG-IP to an existing VE instance.

Workaround

Provision additional disk space to expand the available storage.

Fix Information

In this release, the installer handles this condition without issue.
