Conditions

Platforms with software RAID that also have a symlink in /dev/md that looks like the following: [root@bigip1] images # ls -l /dev/md/ total 8 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 5 2020-07-09 16:12 autorebuild.pid lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 8 2020-07-09 16:51 localhost:0 -> ../md127 -rw-------. 1 root root 66 2020-07-09 16:11 md-device-map

Workaround

Create the expected symlink manually: cd /dev/md ln -s ../md127 _none_\:0
