Deleting files from flash memory does not decrease the used space

My rap's IAP93 don't connect anymore to the W620 after I upgraded to 6.4. I went from 6.1 to 6.4 because captive portal redirecting didn't work anymore and cjoseph posted that this was a bug that he wanted feedback for. I thought  "6.4 is de latest release, no bug hunting for me then." Now 7 of my 12 AP's are down.

 

Anyway, installing 6.1 on flash fails due to insufficient storage/mem.

Both partitions contains either 6.3 and 6.4. I want to downgrade to 6.1.

I've read all the advice on deleting files. Even using the CLI, the W620 complains, see below.

 

(aruba-master) #dir

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        38009 Jan 28 18:47 default.cfg
-rw-------    1 root     root           20 Jan 28 18:47 default.sha1
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root            0 Jan 28 10:46 fieldCerts
-rw-r--r--    1 root     nogroup     19599 Jan 27 19:58 license-save
drwx------    2 root     root            0 Jan 28 12:09 tpm

(aruba-master) #show stora

(aruba-master) #show mem

Memory (Kb): total: 426792, used: 342404, free: 84388

 

(aruba-master) #copy tftp: 192.168.65.3 Dell_AOS_6xx_6.1.4.8-FIPS_42818 system:  partition 1
Not enough flash/memory available (70 MB needed).
Please clean flash and try again.

 

 

I'm now looking at the cpboot> strategy and formatting the partition 1, a procedure we found for 7220 controller and contemplate as a last resort.

 

I'd really appreciate some pointers

 

thx

Hi,
Does your controller is an FIPS controller?

You should upgrade the controller through FTP Or SCP from CLI. If are you in windows dont use TFTP.

FYI i attached these image

Did u notice u uploading a FIPS aos?
aruba-master) #copy tftp: 192.168.65.3 Dell_AOS_6xx_6.1.4.8-FIPS_42818 system: partition 1

You should try to use a none FIPS os if your controller isnt FIPS controller

Re: Deleting files from flash memory does not decrease the used space

Not sure really.

De RAP's are configured for split tunnelling and I have a firewall licence. If an Android phone in a remote site wants to print in that site, the AP NAT's the packets there to prevent data travelling back and forth in the tunnel.

 

We have an MPLS network but I've configured the AP's in the remote site as RAP's.

The distinction between cap and rap for me is blurred, I can only explain it as a business mechanism effect (in an MPLS network )

 

thx

Sorry,

i didn't notice that one. Could you check your controller supported OS version [FIPS / Regular] as per kdisc98 post

Re: Deleting files from flash memory does not decrease the used space

Fips or none-fips versions yield the same error

We're running on 6.3 fips version right now, with a couple AP's up.

 

Does that confirm our W620 is an FIPS W620 ?

Re: Deleting files from flash memory does not decrease the used space

As per my knowledge dell W620 is a FIPS/TAA certified product,

but i am not a sales guy so may be i am wrong.

 

BTW you can try with FTP also..
