Opened: Jun 19, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When migrating from an i7800 to an i11400-ds, the FPGA fails to load due to an incorrect symlink pointing to the wrong firmware version.

Impact

FPGA fails to load; BIG-IP becomes unusable

Conditions

Install a UCS from an i7800 on an i11400-ds using the platform-migrate command.

Workaround

Change the symlink to point to the correct file: [root@wr-v-dc1-151:Active:Standalone] config # ln -sf /usr/firmware/hsbe2_discovery_turbo/L7L4_BALANCED_FPGA /config/firmware/hsb/current_version Double-check to make sure it's correct: [root@wr-v-dc1-151:Active:Standalone] config # ls -l /config/firmware/hsb/current_version lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 54 2019-06-20 00:09 /config/firmware/hsb/current_version -> /usr/firmware/hsbe2_discovery_turbo/L7L4_BALANCED_FPGA Reboot

Fix Information

None
