Updating BIG-IP in Azure

I'm attempting to update our Azure F5 instance and normally with our VE version on premise I import the ISO file, install it to the inactive boot location, then reboot the F5 from that boot location to move to the new version. On our Azure F5 though, I only see one boot location. Is this normal? How do you go about updating an F5 with only one boot location?

  • Yes, it's normal base on the type of license. This is an example for AWS, but I guess Azure probably have a similar plan.



  • From what we are learning as we have the same issue, is that you would need a dual boot azure vm. We have to start from scratch it looks like and recreate in a new subnet. Hopefully this helps someone.
