When i upgrade a Summitstack (8 nodes X250e-24x) with new firmware (XOS) then not all nodes wil be upgraded. Downloading goes well, but installing of the new firmware fails. Anyone got an idea what goes wrong, and knows how to solve this problem ?

Otto,

Can you provide what errors you see in the log?  Please post the pertinent stack errors from "show log".   I would suspect that that you have nodes that are in different partitions which are preventing you from updating.

Hi Bill,

Thx for replying !

This is what i see in the log:

Otto, 

I have never seen that error before but I would suspect something with the code version or file that you are trying to install.  When you update a stack it will upgrade the last switch first all the way through the master.  What version of code (with file name) are you trying to use and did you download from the support site?

Bill,

filename: summitX-15.3.1.4-patch1-10.xos
I downloaded this from the support site

Otto, 

I would re-download the file and try again, the file may have gotten corrupted.  Can you try again and let me know?

Thanks,

Bill,

Done that already, and also did a MD5 check. I also tried another/newer version of the software.
None solved my problem. We have 36 stacks (36 x 8 switches).... :-((

Otto, 

Can you show me a "show slot" and "show switch" and "show version" ?  Sometimes I have seen errors updating if you are going from too old a version to current.  Let me know, we will figure it out!

Otto, 

Everything there looks good on the stacking front thus far, can you send me the output of "show stacking" and "show version images" ?  One thing that I did notice is that there looks to be a version mismatch on the master and the backup.  If you look at master/backup in the primary on the master you have 12.0.3.16 and the backup you have 15.3.14, sometimes upgrading from 12.0.x code as per your master things can go sideways.  When you send me your "show ver images" we can take it from there.

Hi Otto, I agree with Bill.

This issue might be related to an old EXOS version installed in 2 stacking nodes.

All other nodes have downloaded the EXOS code 15.3.1.4 to the primary partition except Slot-1 and Slot-5 as follows:

Slot-1 primary   Tue Apr 8 08:37:02 UTC 2008 12.0.3.16 summitX450-12.0.3.16.xos v1203b16
Slot-5 primary   Tue Apr 8 08:37:02 UTC 2008 12.0.3.16 summitX450-12.0.3.16.xos v1203b16

Did you try to download the EXOS code only to Slot-1 primary and then to Slot-5 primary?

Hi Henrique,

I did that with another stack (with X250e-24x) and had the same problem. I downloaded software to the faulty slots. So every slot had the same software. But when i rebooted the stack, some slots failed to come up, and i had to synchronize and rebooted the slots.

I also upgraded stacks with X440-24x switches with no problems. My opinion is that this a problem only with X250 switches and/or software.

We have 12 stacks (8 x X250-24x) and 24 stacks (8 x X440-24x). I am still struggling with the X250's, but i'm glad with every help you give me...

TIA

Otto, 

Agree with Henrique, because the two slots have older code that has images named "12.0.3.16-summitx450-12.0.316.xos" you need to update the slots primary's to match the rest of them.  To do that you need to update the primary on slot 1 and 5 - to do that you need to do the update specifically by doing the following "download image <tftp> <image_file> vr vr-<default or mgmt> primary" - when you are downloaded install it but do not reboot. Once you have that installed you can try the update from there.

Otto, 

The other issues that could be you have some slots in the stack that are on the wrong partition.  All of slot have to be in the same location, i.e... all slots need to be booted in the primary partition.  Telnet into each slot and do the "show switch" command.  Take a look and let me know.

I believe that for this stack all nodes have booted through Secondary partition due to the below output:

Slot-1 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-2 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-3 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-4 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-5 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-6 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-7 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4
Slot-8 secondary  15.3.3.5 summitX-15.3.3.5-patch1-4.xos v1533b5-patch1-4

Since all nodes are operational and need the same EXOS version to work properly it seems the stack has booted through Secondary partition with EXOS code 15.3.3.5-patch1-4.

Bill,

Ok...so i need to update slot 1 and slot 5, no reboot, and then do a stacking upgrade with newer software to the inactive image...

Otto, 

Yes.. Once they have the software installed you can try to add it again. Before you do check the version images and also go to each slot and make sure each one is booted into the same partition.

Otto, 

This goes back to you needing to upgrade that image on slot 5 manually to get it from the 12.0.3.16 summitX450-12.0.3.16.xos to summitx<version>.   There is a command that is not documented that will allow you to copy images from slot to slot as well.  On this stack, try using the command "download image slot 1 summitX-15.3.1.4-patch1-10.xos slot 5 primary" and see what you get. This should get that slot updated. Let me know.

Glad to hear the other went better!!

Otto, 

You still need to get slot 5 updated, do the update like this "download image <tftp> summitx-<ver>.xos slot 5 primary" - Lets get that done first and reboot the slot, show version images and make sure all of them are Summitx-<ver> -

Hi Otto,
Have you had any luck getting this stack upgraded since your last update?

Hi Drew,

No luck so far... I'm stuck and out of ideas...

The only other thing I can think of right now is that there could be some files "stuck" in the portion of the filesystem used for EXOS download and install.  They'll need to be removed either by GTAC or by doing a recovery image install of EXOS on the affected slots.
If you're up for it, here's How to Use the BootROM Menu to Download and Install a New Image to an EXOS Switch
You can use this to go ahead and install the version you want to upgrade to.

Hi Drew,

At this moment i'm not able to physically be present at the place where the stack is located. Furthermore i see that at the end of procedure, the slot must be rebooted.
But that is something i don't want. Otherwise i'l go back to an older version of the software ?

The main goal is to have all the slots at the same software, and then update the complete stack as i always did.
