Bug ID 751746: Downgrading from BIG-IP version 14.1.0 to an earlier version, the mode of /sys is incorrect.

Last Modified: Apr 29, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP Install/Upgrade, TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.0.0,,,,,, 14.0.1,, 14.1.0,,,,,, 14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 14.1.4,,,,,,, 14.1.5,,,,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,

Opened: Dec 03, 2018

Severity: 4-Minor


rpm is used to check current file states versus expected file states in the 'filesystem' package; changes are detected: [root@localhost:NO LICENSE:Standalone] config # rpm -V filesystem .M....... /sys


There is no known impact to the system if this occurs, but running 'rpm -V filesystem' reports the discrepancy.


-- BIG-IP version 14.1.0 is running. -- An earlier software version is installed. -- The system is then booted into that earlier version.


Using a shell command, run the following command to correct the mode of the directory that is incorrect: chmod u+w /sys
