Good day all,

 

In doing an upgrade on a virtual f5 and after loading the partition the gui is seen stuck at "configuration utility restarting".

I have tried restarting tomcat & http based on online information , but its not helping.

 

License is fine with no errors on it. Its been rebooted few times, any suggestions will be welcome.

Ok, i have figured it out myself. Hopefully it helps people in similar dire situation.

a) check current volume with list /sys software volum

b) remove unwanted volume with delete /sys software "volu name (HD1.1)"

c) do a load /sys config verify, should return clean with no errors

d) reboot

e) restart /sys service httpd

I did a few reboots again and it now shows inoperative in the command line.

license output looks fine with no "expired" seen.

 

Please help.

 ,

 

Can you please check status of mcpd daemon if it is running ?

A check on disk properties show me the following.

list /sys disk logical-disk HD1 all-properties

sys disk logical-disk HD1 {

  mode mixed

  size 81920

  vg-free 3484

  vg-in-use 78228

  vg-reserved 0

 

The error says "Provisioning failed with error 1 - 'Disk limit exceeded. 20088 MB are required to provision these modules, but only 7384 MB are available.'" about disk space. But i am not confident on how to identify which disk or vg- is it referring to,i can't see any 7384MB in disk outputs.

 

Please assist.
