BIG-IQ Applications(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
7.1.0,,,, 7.1.6,, 7.1.7,,, 7.1.8,,,,,, 7.1.9,,,, 8.0.0,

Opened: Aug 31, 2020
Severity: 3-Major


After an upgrade, AS3 deployments from BIG-IQ produce an error similar to this: Invalid RPM: /usr/lib/dco/packages/f5-appsvcs/f5-appsvcs-3.19.1-1.noarch.rpm; validate global.appSvcs.rpmFilePath in /var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json.


AS3 Application deployment attempts fail.


There is an rpmFilePath set in the /var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json file that is no longer valid.


Unless your BIG-IQ system requires a specific AS3 RPM version, the workaround is to simply remove the entire rpmFilePath entry from the /var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json. Removing this entry forces BIG-IQ to use the most recent version of the RPM in /usr/lib/dco/packages/f5-appsvcs. If your BIG-IQ system requires a specific AS3 RPM version, you also need to copy the correct version of the RPM to /usr/lib/dco/packages/f5-appsvcs before BIG-IQ can use it to correctly deploy AS3 applications.
