Severity: 3-Major


Trying to modify a tenant via the GUI or API may not work if the tenant was created via the CLI, and is deployed. Attempting to downgrade an rSeries appliance from F5OS-A 1.1.0 or above to F5OS-A 1.0.x may fail if the device has any tenants deployed. This leaves the system inoperative, with errors similar to the following in /var/F5/system/log/confd.log: <CRIT> 5-Jun-2022::03:17:21.056 appliance-1 confd[105]: - CDB: Upgrade failed: Upgrade transaction failed to validate: /f5-tenants:tenants/tenant{otters}/config/storage/size (value "90"): Storage size can be modified only if tenant is in Configured or Provisioned state. Attempting to downgrade an F5OS-C partition from F5OS-C 1.3.0 or above to F5OS-C 1.2.1 or below may fail if the partition has any tenants deployed. The partition should continue running on the "from" target version.


Admin cannot scale up/scale down the cluster using the GUI if the tenant is initially deployed via CLI. Downgrades of F5OS-A appliance or F5OS-C partition may fail or leave the system inoperative.


Admin creates the tenant via CLI and subsequently edits the following tenant config when the running-state is set to Deployed: -- Scale-up/Scale-down the tenant. -- Add/Remove VLAN.


Use the CLI to scale-up/scale-down and add/remove the VLAN to the tenant. When performing a downgrade, set the tenants to Provisioned first.
