Re: X6-4 FOS upgrade from 8.0.2a to 8.0.2b failes with "Failed to download firmware signature (0x40)"

Tried it, same result. Also tried just a hafailover.

did you issued only "hafailover" or "hareboot" ?

 

become the Standby CP as Active CP

I tried both.

 

I think the reason is that the standby CP is not availible on the network after a failover. It answers on ping but you can't log into it with ssh.

@CiASpook

 

I would suggest to try to do "firmwaredownload" from a CLI and not from BNA.

 

another option you can try is to launch "firmwaredownload -s" also on a single CP

 

If the error persist, then open TAC.

As mentioned earlier I have done the firmwaredownload from CLI also.

 

I have not done for each CP. Would that work if I did it for the active one first, then hafailover to standby and to that one when it's active?

 

1. firmwaredownload -s on active (cp0)

2. hafailover to standby

3. firmwaredownload -s on active (cp1)

4. firmwarecommit

Hi,

 

to summarize, what ever CP (or or 1) which is standby is answering pings, but no reachable via ssh or able to do firmwaredownload.   I would work out the networking issue before doing the firmwaredownload to 8.0.2b. Feels like a networking issue.

 

But one way would be to use the firmwareactivate possibility - assuming CP0 is active

 

on CP0: firmwaredownload -lr

on CP0: hafailover

on CP1: firmwaredownload -lr

on CP1: firnmwareactivate

 

I have never used the firmwareactivate on a director class switch, only on pizza boxes.

I will try an upgrade from a USB stick first and see if that works just to exclude the networking issues.

 

Also add that the standby CP does not respond to ping either after a failover. So there is something wrong I think.

 

But I will try a USB upgrade first.

So the USB download worked just fine. So the problem is network related.

 

I will make a new thread for the network problem I am having.

 

Thanks for all the suggested solutions.
