OS version mismatch across cluster members-f5-all

Vendor: f5

OS: all

Description:
Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the OS installed is different.

Remediation Steps:
Install the correct versions of software on each device.

How does this work?
This script uses the F5 iControl REST API to retrieve the version of the OS.

Why is this important?
Capture the device operating system version.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could extract this data by logging in to the device, entering TMSH and issuing the command “show sys version”.

    software-eos-date:
        why: |
            Ensuring the software being used is always within the vendor's list of supported versions is critical. Otherwise, during a critical issue, the vendor may decline to provide technical support. F5 Networks posts the list of supported software on their website (https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K5903). indeni tracks that list and updates this script to match.
        how: |
            This script uses the F5 iControl REST API to retrieve the current software version (the equivalent of running "show sys version" in TMSH) and based on the software version and the F5 Networks provided information at https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K5903 the correct end of support date is used.
