Last Modified: Oct 06, 2020

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP Install/Upgrade, VE(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
15.1.0, 15.1.0.1

Fixed In:
16.0.0, 15.1.0.2

Opened: Sep 24, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

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.

Impact

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.

Conditions

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

Workaround

None.

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).
