Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 14.1.0.1, 14.1.0.2, 14.1.0.3, 14.1.0.4

Opened: Mar 06, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Image2disk command does not automatically detect repository. As a result, installation with image2disk command may not work. Here is an example of the affected image2disk command syntax. switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense

Impact

Installer cannot start unless you explicitly specify the repository.

Conditions

-- 14.1.0 clean install using DVD-ROM or USB thumb drive. -- Using a command that does not specify a repository.

Workaround

You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Manually specify repository while running image2disk command. For example, the following command successfully starts installation with DVD-ROM (/cdserver) or USB thumb drive (/mnt/thumb/<ISO>): switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /cdserver switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /mnt/thumb/<ISO> -- At the command line, type 'start', and the interactive software installation starts.
