Error upgrading

I'm having problems trying to upgrade a 3200 controller from 6.0.1.2 to 6.1.2.6

 

I tried to upgrade via the web-gui but it kept timing out. So now I"m trying to upgrade it via the CLI and I keep getting an error that says....

 

Error upgrading image: ncftpget ArubaOS_MMC_6.1.2.6_31653: will not overwrite local file with older remote file.

 

Does this mean the file actualy made it to the partition but it didn't upgrade? Do I have to somehow now go in and delete that file and then try again via the CLI? I've tried to upgrade both partitions and I keep getting the same result.

 

See output below......

Re: Error upgrading

I actualy corrected this problem by upgrading the partition via the CLI to another code version that was not previously tried via the web-gui.

 

Would still be helpfull to know how to remove a "stuck" image off a partition if this were to happen again.

 

Thanks for any input...

Re: Error upgrading

I have run into this exact same issue before. I believe this is what I had to do:

 

Via the CLI, upgrade partition 0, even though you are booted from it.

 

The other option is to disconnect this controller from the network, plug your laptop directly into the controller. Change the boot option to the partition 1. Reboot the controller. Then upgrade the partition 0, assuming partition 1 isn't corrupted.

 

Also, do a show storage to make sure you have enough space available.

Thanks,

Re: Error upgrading

I just went through the upgrade procedure for upgrading from 3.4.1.0 > intermediate version > 6.1.3.7 ... When I tried to upgrade version 3.4.5.1 (latest version of the 3.4.x train) I got the same error (will not overwrite local file with older remote file).  

 

To work around this issue I had upgraded my standby partition to one version prior to 3.4.5.1... so I went from 3.4.1.0 >> 3.4.5.0 with out any issues.... 

 

Then I upgraded from 3.4.5.0 >> 6.1.3.7 with out any other errors...  My guess is that there was an issue with the patch version not sure why...  Anyways this is what worked for me...

Re: Error upgrading

Have same issue with some older 620s controllers. 

I found many old default.cfg.xxxx files.  Deleted them and only keep one default.cfg
