Bug ID 830717: Appdata logical volume cannot be resized for some cloud images

Last Modified: Jul 12, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP Install/Upgrade, MA-VE(all modules)

Opened: Sep 24, 2019

Severity: 3-Major


When resizing the appdata logical volume, the change may not be honored. This is because sometimes the disk metadata does not support the change without unmounting and remounting the disk.


The appdata logical volume cannot be resized, so you must reduce the number of modules and the associated provisioning level so that the existing appdata logical volume size does support them.


This issue applies to deployments that provision multiple modules requiring a large appdata logical volume.



Fix Information

Logic was added to disk resizing to account for scenarios where the disk must be unmounted and then remounted to make the change. If the disk must be unmounted and remounted, this also requires a reboot (automatic).
