Severity: 3-Major


-- The iControl REST commands respond with the following: [INFO] Text: u'{"code":200,"message":"REST system unavailable due to disk corruption! See /var/log/restjavad.*.log for errors.","restOperationId":1472895,"kind":":resterrorresponse"}' -- The GUI indicates that iAppLX sub-system is unresponsive. -- On the BIG-IP device, /var/config/rest/storage/LOST-STORAGE.txt exists.


The iControl REST system is unavailable.


The conditions that trigger this are unknown. It might be due to a previous catastrophic event such as power loss or out-of-memory errors. Manually creating the file /var/config/rest/storage/LOST-STORAGE.txt can also trigger this error.


Run the following commands at the BIG-IP command prompt: bigstart stop restjavad restnoded rm -rf /var/config/rest/storage rm -rf /var/config/rest/index bigstart start restjavad restnoded rm -f /var/config/rest/downloads/*.rpm rm -f /var/config/rest/iapps/RPMS/*.rpm tmsh restart sys service tomcat Then, reinstall any iAppLX packages that were installed.
