ipcinit failed :firmwaredownload is already.

hi

 

At the beginning of the update form ftp (firmwaredownload) I canceled before the start of the process and even set the  ftp server but

when I run the command firmwaredownload Displayed:ipcinit failed :firmwaredownload  process is already.

And I can not update from ssh.

 

How can this process cancel?

 

Or a way to solve the problem.

 

thank you

hi,

 

 

It looks to me that the issue is that you closed the SSH session being the command still active. This caused the firmwaredownload to remain active in background preventing you from executing it again.

 

Try the following:

  • run 'ps exfcl' to see if firmwaredownload is hung in background (root access credentials required, but this step is not strictly necessary).
  • run 'killtelnet' to see if the remote session you ran when first executed 'firmwaredownload' is still active and if so, terminate it.

 

See the below example:

 

SWITCH:root> firmwaredownload
IpcInit failed. Firmwaredownload is already running.

 

SWITCH:root> ps exfcl |grep firmware
4 0 2715 2599 20 0 21072 3244 - Sl+ pts/0 0:00 | \_ firmwaredownloa

 

SWITCH:root> killtelnet

question, I only have killtelnet 1 session display, this is the current one I assume, as the idle is 0.00s, could this mean that the firmware is running from the gui?

although firmwaredownloadstatus display is Zero

anyway to stop that
