If iRulesLX is provisioned the /usr mount points are mounted as read-write. This causes the installation of an image to fail. tmsh show software status will report the status for the target volume: Could not access configuration source.


Unable to upgrade or more generally install an image on a new or existing volume.


-- iRulesLX is provisioned. -- The /usr mount points are mounted as read-write. -- Attempt an installation or upgrade.
