What should one perform after successful resource provisioning on virtual F5 appliance?
I had encountered this question in my preparation process for F5: 101 exam.
Q. The VE BIG-IP requires additional space for the resource provisioning so, the administrator correctly provisions additional storage space for the VE BIG-IP and the following status of the F5 BIG-IP is displayed:
Location Current New
/var/local 25468 -
/var/share 512003 10245556
What does this indicate?
- The changes were in effect.
- The BIG-IP needs to be reboot for the effect.
- The BIG-IP needs to be restarted for the effect.
- The hypervisor needs to be reboot.
Either the 2nd or 2rd one is what you are looking for. More details on the partition resizing can be found here: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K14952 and is worth the read.
About the diference between the 2nd and 3rd option; I'm not sure where you got this question from, but it's not something I would expect on the 101 exam as it is ambiguous. I'm sure I'll get some harsh replies for the following statement, but personally I don't really see a difference between "reboot" and "restart". And even if there would be, the F5 exams are not about checking if you understand English, it's about checking if you know what you are doing.
If useful, last year I've written a series of articles on the F5 exams and the process; https://community.f5.com/t5/tag/series-f5-certification-mega-meta-series/tg-p First article: https://community.f5.com/t5/technical-articles/f5-certifications-mega-meta-series-how-to-take-the-stress-out-of/ta-p/285055
It may give you some more insight and some tips for the exam.
Hope this helps and good luck!
