Aruba 650 Controller out of space when trying to upgrade

Hi there,

I have a 650 device running 6.1.1.0 .. tried to upgrade to 6.1.2.7 but put the wrong device code on it.

 

The controller took the correct code via cpboot tftp and booted correctly, however it keeps telling me:

Error accessing the file /flash/img0/mswitch/webui/images/apwizard_buttons-paging.gif
*********************************************************************
* WARNING:  An additional image upgrade is required to complete the *
* installation of the AP and WebUI files. Please upgrade the boot   *
* partition again and reload the controller.                        *
*********************************************************************

 

when i try to upgrade again it tells me that there is no space.

I've deleted what i can from the system but that doesnt help.

 

How can i resolve this?

 

Regards

John

Re: Aruba 650 Controller out of space when trying to upgrade

You have to do a double boot in order to fix this.  Load code back on the same partition and boot off of it again. 

 

* ps. Don't just boot off the upgraded partion again, actually load the files back on the partition.

If it says you are out of space, you need to reboot, to reclaim that space.  Upgrade to the same partition again.

Re: Aruba 650 Controller out of space when trying to upgrade

Having the same issue with this trying to upgrade from 6.1.2.7 to 6.1.3. I have rebooted controller 2-3 times already. 

 

(SEN-DEVL-A651) #show storage
Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mtdblock11 156.0M 118.0M 38.0M 76% /flash
none 300.0M 1.8M 298.2M 1% /tmp
/dev/mtdblock9 50.0M 24.5M 25.5M 49% /mnt/img0
/dev/mtdblock10 50.0M 24.5M 25.5M 49% /mnt/img1

 

(SEN-DEVL-A651) #dir

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18213 Feb 8 12:40 default.cfg
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 38034 Feb 8 12:30 flashbackup.tar.gz

 

Any help with clearing files off this? Is there special direction in doing so?

You can try using TFTP or ftp, which uses less memory.

What is in flash that is taking up so much memory?  Is this something that if I went back to factory defaults, would free up so that I could upgrade, then restore the config?

Do you have any maps imported in the RF plan?  Also, type "tar crash" to make sure you do not have any crashes taking up space.  If it does generate a crash.tar, copy it off and then delete it.

Re: Aruba 650 Controller out of space when trying to upgrade

Had to get on the same subnet as the controller for my TFTP daemon to work. That did the trick though, looks like its going through.

 

Whats the best practice for clearing the flash memory? I'm hoping after the upgrade finishes, that it goes back down?

 

Right now its sitting at 93% used.

The latest release notes has a section called "Managing Flash Memory" that you should take a look at to answer your question.

Re: Aruba 650 Controller out of space when trying to upgrade

Took a look at it, didn't help, I had literally emptied the flash memory as far as I could tell.  There were 0 files in the dir and it still wouldn't do the upgrade.
