stack boot partition mismatch

  • 1.  stack boot partition mismatch

    Posted 10-22-2018 06:12
    I recently encountered a situation where a slot in a stack was clearly set to use a different boot partition to the remainder of its stack and upon stack reboot the slot in question was left stranded outside the stack topology on a dfferent firmware revision....

    i am pretty sure creating a script to go away to all my stacks and find if a specific slot in that stack has the incorrect boot partition configured is much easier said than done as technically the mismtach should not occur in the first place....

    However, I do think it possible to create a script which will go away, find the boot partition already set for a stack, and then issue the "use image" command using the result, and in effect re-issuing the correct boot partition to all stack members without any ill affects, but correcting any further "anomalies" of the same ilk I may have across the estate...

    Does anyone know of a way to put together an intelligent script to achieve such a task or similar?

    may thanks in anticipation

    What you are looking for sounds like the feature added to EXOS 22.6.
    See the ExtremeXOS users guide "Automatically Adding or Replacing Nodes in a Stack" which also corrects EXOS image mismatches across the stack.
