Archival-Feature isn`t working anymore

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Archival-Feature isn`t working anymore

    Posted 07-25-2017 02:25

    Hi all,

     

    since we had moved to a new archival-site, the commit-on-transfer isn`t working anymore.

    But this issue only occures on one SRX (Cluster). The other SRX-Systems are working fine with the new archival-site ...

     

    I have deleted the archival-statement and configured it new.

    I also checked, that the ssh-know-hosts was updated.

    I can also connect via ssh to the archival-target.

     

    Here is the logoutput: As you can see, there are some configs queued ... maybe too much ??

    can you share the config? are you able to connect to server manually? for example if you are using scp, can you connect manully to the same server from srx manually?

    Hi Christoph,

    I know, this is an old thread, but I'm having the same issue. Starting November my auto archival stopped working.

    I see messages like that

    Dec 22 20:36:47 glGW01 mgd[40273]: UI_COMMIT_COMPLETED: : commit complete
    Dec 22 20:36:54 glGW01 logger: transfer-file failed to transfer /var/transfer/config/glGW01_20201216_160858_juniper.conf.gz rc 1

    Can you explain your solution in more details?

    More Details from the logs:

    Dec 22 21:12:51 glGW01 logger: transfer-file failed to transfer /var/transfer/config/glGW01_20201223_004848_juniper.conf.gz rc 1

    Manual copy works fine:

    Hi Suraj,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have just solved the problem by myself a couple of minutes ago.

    Explanation:

    I accepted remote-backup-device fingerprint onyl with my own SRX-User-Account, but not in root-account.

    After I logged into SRX via root, and acceppted the remote-backup-target`s fingerprint, the files started to transmitting.

     

    Thanks to you all.

    Cheers, Christoph.

    Hi,

    I've exactly same problems that Alex since I've upgraded my SRX320 from 19.3 to 20.4R1.12.

    Sames logs in /var/log/messages :

    Jan 14 11:49:38 abcdeg mgd[32530]: UI_COMMIT_COMPLETED: : commit complete

    Manual copying also works, which validate flow still open since junos upgrade :

    root@abcdeg% cd /var/transfer/config/
    root@abcdeg% ls
    abcdeg_20210114_104938_juniper.conf.gz

    Yes.

    Looks like issue started when we upgraded to 20.2 and after.

    Hope it's going to be fixed soon.

    I contacted JTAC and their engineers admitted the issue and promised to fix it in the next release.

    Hi,

    We also had the same problem. Manual copy was working but it always said:
    "transfer-file failed to transfer /var/transfer/config/..........." in the logs.

    So I tried this:
    configure private
    set system archival configuration transfer-interval 15
    commit comment "archival setup - interval"
    set system archival configuration transfer-on-commit
    commit comment "archival setup - on commit" and-quit​

    Since then, configuration transfer on commit is working again.

    We have 20.2R2-S2.6.

    BR,
    Aleksandar

    I did try a bunch of SRX versions from 19.3 to 21.2.
    The most stable version where auto-archival actually works with scp and almost no other issues is 20.4R3.8
    At least in our environment.
