Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.0.0, 14.0.0.1, 14.0.0.2, 14.0.0.3, 14.0.0.4, 14.0.0.5, 14.1.0, 14.1.0.1, 14.1.0.2, 14.1.0.3, 14.1.0.4, 14.1.0.5, 14.1.0.6, 15.0.0, 15.0.1

Opened: Oct 26, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

'tmsh show sys raid' shows stale information When the RAID status changes because a disk fails, is pulled without being removed from the RAID, or when RAID rebuild completes, the new status is not updated to be visible in tmsh. Log messages, SNMP traps and alerts associated with the change in RAID status do not appear.

Impact

'tmsh show sys raid' output might show disk as ok when it has actually failed, or may show the disk as rebuilding when it is actually ok.

Conditions

-- Platforms that support RAID running 14.0.0 or later. -- Running the command: tmsh show sys raid.

Workaround

From a bash shell run the command 'array' to see the correct state of the RAID. If a disk has failed or been removed, the following tmsh commands remove the disk from the RAID: tmsh mod sys raid array <arrayName> remove <DiskName>

Fix Information

None
