Last Modified: Feb 26, 2019

Bug Tracker

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

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 14.1.0.1

Fixed In:
14.1.0.2

Opened: Nov 09, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Running a bare-metal installation via image2disk (IE, 'image2disk --format=volumes <ISO>') may fail due to a missing command in the maintenance OS.

Impact

Unable to perform bare-metal installations/installations from MOS in affected versions.

Conditions

The version of MOS installed on the system is from a v14.1.0 or newer ISO, and a user attempts a bare-metal installation via the 'image2disk' command.

Workaround

The installed version of MOS can be removed with the command '/usr/lib/bpdiag -a mos'. After doing this, installing a version older than 14.1.0 will re-install an older version of MOS without this issue. You can then reboot to MOS and manually run the installation using 'image2disk' from there.

Fix Information

Fix issues with bare-metal installations via 'image2disk' failing.
