The /var logical volume size of 950 MiB for LTM-only BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) images may be too small for some deployments. This can result in result in loss of SSH access.


Complex declarative onboarding configurations may fill the /var logical volume. You are locked out because of the too-small volume.


This applies to deployments that use declarative onboarding for configuration.


The workaround is to manually extend the /var logical volume. For more information, see K14952: Extending disk space on BIG-IP VE :: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K14952.
