Virtual Connect firmware upgrade 2.34 to 3.17 - ERROR: unable to create SSH session

Hans-Werner had an upgrade issue:






a c-Class enclosure with two VC Flex10 modules in bay-1 and bay-2

is giving me a hard time. It is one of lot of new installation that are

delivered with firmware 2.34 and needs to be upgraded to 3.17.


All the other enclosures worked fine but this one refuses to complete

the VCSU update session with error message:


ERROR: Unable to create SSH session


I am able to login by https to the VCM GUI and by SSH to the CLI,

but VCSU fails.


Has anyone seen this before and can give me an advise before I

start disassembling this enclosure ?



Because this is a new installation I can do what I want with this

thing, but wiping the VC and OA configuration and reseating

OA, OA tray and VC modules did not help at all.




Nick had a comment:




Have the VC modules got their correct address and can communicate with the Onboard Administrator? I had this on a clean install and it was caused by someone getting the Enclosure Bay IP Address (EBIPA) for one of the modules wrong so it couldn’t talk over IP




Mark also had a comment:




Do you have Domain Named Server (DNS) settings still enabled on the OA/EBIPA for the Interconnect modules?




Any other suggestions?
