Note -

  • Affected customers who are on PCS 9.1R4-9.1R4.2 can do a direct software upgrade to PCS 9.1R4.3 provided they have already deployed their OVFs per Best practices outlined in Related Links. (Some crashes were seen due to the OVF misconfiguration).
  • OVF 9.1R4.3 size has changed from around 1 GB to around 3 GB because of some changes done with respect to filesystem and partitions.
  • This fix only applies to crashes associated with the "500 Internal Error" issue outlined in KB44412 - "500 Internal Error" is seen when accessing some Admin pages on PCS.
  • Pre-8.3Rx OVFs should not be used.
