Unable to remove older software image from F5 guest

Hi

When I try to remove this , it gives me an error and cannot remove them

 

( Data Input Error: Could not locate image "BIGIP-14.1.2.7-0.0.5.iso" )

 

What is the best way of removing older version of image from a F5 guest

  • Looks like both image exits on vCMP Host device, that the reason you are not able to delete it.

        @samir Jha If the particular image is deleted from the host , will affect other hosts that have been created . What is the best way to remove the older version without potentially affecting others ?

  • If you remove from vCMP host, it will automatically dispear from all vCMP guests​ which has hosted in one viprion. I don't see any impact on other unit.

    Why don't just copy image to secure location for future use.​

    And remove image safely...

  • Hi gefela,

     

    Have you try to do this in CLI ? images are located /shared/images folder.
