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 as one of the following: -- Could not access configuration source. -- Unable to get hosting system product info.


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.
