Hi guys,

I´ve an issue with an old F5 1500 which is unable to boot.

I´m getting the following error conected via terminal console:

This ends up in a infinite loop. Any ideas about this error?

Thanks in advance

  • Yes, This is totally related to hardware issue. We can not do any troubleshooting steps here. Because your CLI, GUI will not work. And console give same massage continuously. You should raise TAC case provide them console log. They will process RMA for you.


  • Please open a ticket with F5. It is a hardware issue. 1500 model is End of life device. Please start migrating your applications to new hardware models becuase you will not get a support from F5 for 1500 models.
