Last Modified: Nov 07, 2022

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Platform(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
6.0.1,,, 7.0.0,,

Opened: May 01, 2020
Severity: 4-Minor


On rare occasions, when you upgrade a BIG-IQ/DCD running a version earlier than 7.1, the upgrade might fail with an error similar to the following: "Failed. Software installation failed for device <IP address> due to 'Device installation failed due to unable to complete UCS backup for <IP address> due to timeout'. Rolling back."


The BIG-IQ upgrade fails.


This can happen when you upgrade BIG-IQ/DCD with a UCS backup. During the upgrade, the UCS might take longer than 10 minutes to complete which prompts BIG-IQ to time out.


To work around this issue, start the UCS backup prior to the upgrade, then start the upgrade without creating a backup.
