Last Modified: Dec 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 14.1.4,,,,,,, 14.1.5,,,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,, 15.1.5,, 15.1.6,, 15.1.7, 15.1.8,,, 15.1.9,, 15.1.10,,

Opened: Mar 28, 2019

Severity: 4-Minor


Creation of HD1.x slots from creates filesystems with slightly different properties than on slots created from 12.1.x for example. This is allowing ACL/XATTR support by default for the former units, which can triggers errors in some 14.1.x installations.


An error may be generated after creating the journal: warning kernel: [143381.837840]: systemd-journald[658]: Failed to read ACL on /var/log/journal/sample/user-sample.journal, ignoring: Operation not supported This instance of the error message might not be critical. If anything else depends on the ACLs to be present right at the start of the installation, some components might behave differently.


- Running 14.x, which had its slot created from a system running 12.x or 14.x - Triggering journal creation (login? tmsh commands? unclear)
