  • 1.  Upgrading SRX240H

    Posted 07-02-2014 06:34

     

    Hi,
    I am planning to do Junos upgarde SRX 240H from 11.4R7.5 to 12.1X44-D35.5 ,

    Setup: Chassis cluster - node1 as primary for all redundancy groups, node0 as secondary for all groups.

    As juniper advised Simultaneously, at the same time, reboot both

    I am woundering on which node should enter the reboot command first, so I will not lock out my session if redudancy group failover.


    ======
    NODE1> show chassis cluster status
    Cluster ID: 1
    Node                  Priority          Status    Preempt  Manual failover

    Redundancy group: 0 , Failover count: 1
        node0                   100         secondary      no       no  
        node1                   1           primary        no       no  

    Redundancy group: 1 , Failover count: 3
        node0                   100         secondary      no       no  
        node1                   1           primary        no       no  

    {primary:node1}
    NODE1>

     

    Please also confirm if the below is the recommended release and if any one is using this witout any issues.

     

     

    JTAC Recommended release for this product is: 12.1X44-D35.5

    Hi Mass,

     

       Do you have console access of these devices? If yes then you can do as below

     

    1) You can install Junos on both devices without reboot ==> request system software add no-copy no-validate <path of package>

     

    2) After installation, halt node 0   => request system halt

     

    3) Once node 0 halted, then you can reboot node 1  ==> request system reboot

     

    3) Once node 1 come back in 12.1X44-D35 version, make sure all good and then you can boot up node 0 by accessing its console and hit enter.

     

    4) Node 0 will boot up with 12.1X44-D35 and join the cluster.

     

     

    Yes, 12.1X44-D35 should be stable release.

     

    Thanks,

    SHKM

    Hi Mass,

     

    yes 12.1X44-D35 is the recommended release.

     

    After uploading Junos code to both devices , both nodes needs to be rebooted simultaneously within few second interval.

     

    As per RG group status, have console connection to both devices and reboot node1 first and then Node0.

     

    If you do not have console session , then reboot node0 and then Node1 but Node0 will be primary after reboot.

     

    Whichever node is rebooted first , it will come online first and become primary.


    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello

     

    You could perform in-service upgrade where reboot of both nodes simultaneously is not required.

    Importantly, there should not be any outage as well.

    Hi

     

    I am worry about the amount of free disk space necessary to upgrade My device with a new version of the Junos OS

    that the /var filesystem is low on free disk space

     

    I understand version 12 is about 143M

     

    /Downloads$ ls -sh junos-srxsme-12.1X44-D35.5-domestic.tgz
    143M junos-srxsme-12.1X44-D35.5-domestic.tgz
    /Downloads$

    I want to avoid deleting files using request system storage cleanup

     

    Any advise ?

    Hi Mass,

     

    You can follow upgrade using "USB". In this case we mount USB to SRX and there should not be an issue with memory.

    Mode details on this method can be found in http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB16652

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Masroor,

     

    Yes, we can delete all the files under /var/tmp/ safely.

     

    You can also take a backup of /var/log/ and delete them, and deleting system software backup as below.

     

    > request system software delete-backup 
    Delete backup system software package [yes,no] (no) yes

     

     

    Thanks,

    Suraj

    Hi Suraj,

     

    I think,  will avoid doing this as if i will software back then  will not be able to roll-back.

     

    > request system software delete-backup 
    Delete backup system software package [yes,no] (no) yes

     

    Thanks

    Hi Mass,

     

    You can run the following command (du -a /cf |sort -n -r | more) from shell prompt and delete the large file which are not needed.

     

    once you identify the file that you need to delete , then cd to the directory and use rm filename to delete them manually.
