I have a redundant system that has failed due to a major power outage we had. Support recommends a clean install by following
the below article. Pretty straight forward. Boot to USB drive with the image you want installed and the machine will discover iso and walk you through.
My issue I'm having is getting the system to recognize the USB drive K13164 article give some instructions but it's failing on the first command to mount -o loop ...just doesn't recognize the command at all. BTW this USB creation is done on the working BigIP.
Tried several other ways to create the USB and nothing seems to be working here.
Anyone else out there come across this issue?
K13117: Performing a clean installation of BIG-IP 11.x - 14.x or Enterprise Manager 3.x
1. Use fat32 usb
2. Copy .iso image to usb
3. Mount usb to device
5. Enter bios and boot from usb
6. Wipe disk
diskinit --style volumes
7. Verify system as 'W95 FAT32' - not required
fdisk -l /dev/sdb
8. Create "usb" folder in "mnt" and mount
mkdir /mnt/usb mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
9. Start installation via "image2disk" command
image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /mnt/usb/BIGIP-184.108.40.206-0.0.4.iso
10. Eject usb after installation
