How to cancel a installing process

Hi everyone.

Are there any way to cancel installing process after typing "tmsh install sys software....." ?
One day, during a test I realized that I tried to install unexpected s/w version.
But I couldn't find any method. It's waste of time!!.
Does anyone have any idea?

I believe there is no option to cancel it but i can advice let the software install on new image partition HD1.1. After that you can delete that image partition HD1.1 and recreate during new installation.

    delete sys software volume HD1.1

Hope it will work for you.

Hi.

Deleteting software on the partition doesn't seem to work during installation. I tried to type the command you taught. But it couldn't work.

# show sys software

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sys::Software Status
Volume         Product   Version    Build  Active                 Status
------------------------------------------------------------------------
HD1.test        BIG-IP    11.6.1  0.0.317      no  installing 10.000 pct
HD1.ts1         BIG-IP    12.1.3  0.0.378      no               complete

# delete sys software volume HD1.test
01071657:3: The volume (HD1.test) is being modified and cannot be deleted.

Anyway, I need to re-create partition after finishing previous installation process, don't I?
