|get_boot_image_information||This method is deprecated, as it returns details which are available using more modern techniques (it relies on the “audit script”, which is no longer under active development). The functionality is now available using System::SoftwareManagement::get_software_status and methods in the System::Disk interface. Gets text which contains boot image information, in the form of “name=value” pairs. The text includes information about what&aposs installed in each of the boot locations in the device. While this method is not officially deprecated, it is preferred to use get_software_status, as that method is a newer method which yields much the same information in a more rigorous and controlled manner.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|get_boot_location||Gets the configured default boot location, which will be the location that boots after the system reboots.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|get_cluster_boot_location||Gets the cluster boot location, which will be the location set in the software desired table.||BIG-IP_v9.6.0|
|get_hotfix_information||Gets information on any hotfixes applied to the system. There may not be any hotfix installed, in which case the returned sequence is empty.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|get_live_install_completion||Gets the percent complete of the current live install processes. Note: You may wish to use get_software_status instead of this method as it returns more information, such as the product, version, and build, along with the “percent complete”/status field.||BIG-IP_v9.6.0|
|get_rpm_package_information||Gets the RPM packages installed on the device.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|get_software_hotfix||Gets a list of hotfix information about specific hotfix image in the repository.||BIG-IP_v9.6.1|

|get_version||Gets the version information for this interface.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|has_logical_volume_management||Checks to see whether the system disks are managed with logical volumes.||BIG-IP_v10.0.0|
|install_hotfix||Installs the specified hotfixes.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|install_hotfix_no_daemons||Calls bigstart stop and installs the specified hotfixes. Upon completion, if reboot_system is set to false, bigstart start is called to bring daemons back up.||BIG-IP_v9.4.2|
|install_software_image||This method has been deprecated as it does not allow the creation of volumes. Please use install_software_image_v2 in its stead. Initiates an install of SW images on all blades installed on one chassis.||BIG-IP_v9.6.0|
|install_software_image_v2||Initiates an install of a software image on all blades installed on one chassis.||BIG-IP_v11.2.0|

|set_boot_location||Sets the default boot location, which will be the boot location that boots after the next system reboot. This version will not work on a clustered system.||BIG-IP_v9.2.0|
|set_cluster_boot_location||Sets the cluster wide boot location, which will be the boot location after the next system reboot. Starting with BIG-IP version 9.6.0, clustered systems will reboot immediately.||BIG-IP_v9.6.0|
