I have an HA pair of Viprion with old B2100, one in each chassis, I am planning to replace it with B2150.
I saw some document, some suggestion to use UCS file, the other suggestion is to use SCF files.
any catches I need to be aware? If someone has already done that, and can show the procedure that will be great help.
You can follow below article:
Replacing a blade in a VIPRION system that has only one blade installed
While installing UCS on new blade use below command.
tmsh load /sys ucs <path/to/UCS> no-license
Thanks, since we have password on cert/key, might need to reload the masterkey.
Replacing a VIPRION with a single blade, is almost the same as replacing any other hardware like a 2000s.
The chassis has no configuration, so if you remove the single blade, there will no configuration there.
Use the UCS with the platform-migrate option:
Yes. Some times while loading ucs file you will receive password errors.
If you know all the master passwords for your configuration just nullify the passwords on bigip.conf file (Configure as null) and provide below command.
tmsh load /sys config
Then you can change passwords manually.
Hope this helps.
