Upgrade to 9.0 Problems

Hi there,

I attempted to upgrade our multisite SAN to version 9.0 but it hung for nearly 24 hours on communicating with a remote FOM. I cancelled the upgrade which was fine. However ...

When I attempt to run the upgrade again it says:

Gathering the installation destination information for 'XX-NodeX' failed. The upgrade partition is currently in use. Cancelling all further installations.

I can then only click Finish.

Any ideas anyone??

Try rebooting each of the boxes and see if it clears. I get that every once in a while and it clears afterrebooting.

Re: Upgrade to 9.0 Problems

One at a time I take it?

Can you do that through software or does it need to be physically powered down?

I typically remove legacy fom from the mgmt group before an upgrade and replace it with the latest version from hp manually rather than attempt to upgrade the failover manager..

Hi Gavin, Yes restart them one at a time and after rebooting each node wait for the volumes to complete the re-sync, then restart the next node and so on.

When upgrading saniq, the nodes mounts a /lhnupgrade partition , which gets cleared after a restart.

And yes you can reboot the Node from CMC.
Just right click on the node and you have the reboot/power off option.
just select the time as 0 for instant reboot.
