I am planning to upgrade the software version of BIG-IQ standalone device to the latest one. Could you please advise the procedure for the upgrade, I have seen the upgrade procedure on F5 website, but as this is a standalone box is there anything I need to do something different?
Just follow the guide and you should be fine with a few caveats. One of the steps is to separate a HA pair to standalone before upgrading anyway so you're halfway there already.
Note that you can't upgrade to BIG-IQ 6.0.0 though as that's for fresh installs only, the latest release is 5.4.0.
Depending on your current version you may need to upgrade to 5.0 first (if running a lower than 5.x version) before you can go to 5.4
5.x also has a higher CPU and RAM requirement than 4.x so check your hardware specs, I was prompted to increase to at least 16gb RAM via an onscreen popup.
Thanks a lot Dan.
Currently the F5 is running 5.1 and planning to upgrade to 5.4.
Is this still the case if I want to upgrade to 6.0.1 from 5.1.0?
