When the BIG-IP system boots, mcpd continually restarts.
When the system boots, it cannot become active.
This occurs if you issue the 'image2disk' command with the '-format' option in the MOS (Maintenance Operating System) shell.
In the MOS shell, do not issue the 'image2disk' utility with the '-format' option. You can achieve the same result by following the shell guidance. To begin, type 'start<enter>'. If the system is already in the defective state, use this shell command, and then reboot: touch /.tmos.platform.init The problem should be resolved.
In MOS, running 'image2disk' with the '-format' option no longer causes continuous mcpd restarts.
