VCM failed to upgrade to 4.85 from 4.10 - Stacking Links failed

This past weekend, attempted to upgrade VCM from 4.10 to 4.85. Log below - secondary reports as running 4.85 but primary reports as 4.10 and the units are not speaking to each other. Secondary rebooted but the system never failed over to it / primary never rebooted.

We have not rebooted the primary yet as that will cause an outage. Attempted to run the upgrade again with '-f health, version' and that fails with 'Previous firmware update was not completed'

Looking for advice / next steps. This is a fully populated production chassis so I will need to schedule maintence for anything that will disrupt connectivity.

Re: VCM failed to upgrade to 4.85 from 4.10 - Stacking Links failed

Hi msteele,

 

Please try the following steps one by one : 

 

 

1) From the VCM CLI, issue the following command:

reset vcm -failover

OR

From the VCM Web UI, navigate to the Tools Menu and select "Reset Virtual Connect Manager." On the pop-up dialog box, check the "Force Failover" option and then select Yes.

 

2) Reset VCM (refer : https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=mmr_kc-0118494)

 

3) Restart VC

 

4) If nothing helps, remove the VC 2 and perform forceful update on VC1

 

(Please have regular Back up and arrange for Downtime before performing any activity)

 

Thank you

Thanks Ram - I am still working to get a maintenance window.

We have to take about 830 live streams down when we do this.
