Symptoms have been observed only in one case: A bare metal install to BIG-IP 14.1.0. In this case, a messages indicating the RPM database under /shared is corrupted.
The /shared/lib/rpm database must be recreated and f5optics manually installed.
Bare metal installation via PXE boot or USB install.
1. Backup the current Packages file: cp /shared/lib/rpm/Packages /shared/tmp/ 2. Remove all the files from the database directory" rm -f /shared/lib/rpm/* 3. Initiate the database by using the old version RPM: /opt/bin/rpm --dbpath /shared/lib/rpm --initdb 4. Restore the Packages file (Press 'y' when promoted by 'cp: overwrite'): cp /shared/tmp/ /shared/lib/rpm/Packages Now you should be able to install the package.
With these changes, the corruption of the /shared/lib/rpm database is no longer observed.
