F5 LTM Point Release Upgrade (12.1.2)

We are looking to upgrade the point release version of our F5 LTM due to vulnerability issue . Currently we are running on 12.1.2.1.0.271 HF1 and plan to move to 12.1.2.2.0.276-HF2 . I am having some confusion on how to start with it . I already downloaded the new image Hotfix-BIGIP-12.1.2.2.0.276-HF2 .

I understand that there's a lot of things we need to consider while doing this . By the way we are running Active-Standby pair of LTM.

 

Thanks In advance .

 

Here's the current settings we have . If I understand correctly, we can use HD1.2 or HD1.3 to install the new point release version ?

 

Volume Product Version  Build Active  Status

----------------------------------------------------

HD1.1  BIG-IP  12.1.2  1.0.271   yes complete

HD1.2  BIG-IP 11.5.3 2.0.196   no complete

HD1.3  BIG-IP 13.0.0 2.0.1671   no complete

Hi Jeffrey,

 

Yes you right, you can use the boot location HD1.2 or HD1.3

You can follow this KB to install the hotfix : https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13123

Thank you so much this looks promising from what I can tell . Would you recommend any steps for an Active/Standby pair.
