  • 1.  EX3300 VC Upgrade

    Posted 01-29-2018 02:49

    Hello experts,

     

    I am planning to upgrade EX3300 VC, can someone explain what is the JTAC recommended version? (it says Junos 12.3R12-S7 / 15.1R6-S2) not sure which is the right one?

     

    If I want to upgrade to 15.1R6-S2, can I upgrade directly or do I need to go through interim paths? (Please explain me why 🙂 )

    Current version is 12.3R11.2

     

    Thanks

    HI,

     

    Would suggest 15.1R6-S2 and can do direct upgrade.

    Some CLI knob/configuration may not be included due certain command depreciation.

    I believe there an exception for SRX210HE2, check the following thread:

    Hi Karan,

     

    The upgrade on EX3300 was okay and it boots from 15.1. But the issue is, its missing most of the software suits.

     

    These are disappeared after the upgrade: 

    JUNOS Enterprise Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Packet Forwarding Engine Enterprise Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Routing Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Web Management [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS FIPS mode utilities [12.3R11.2]

     

    Anh idea how to fix this?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Suresh,

     

    A lot is changed in JUNOS 15.1 onwards & restructures in the S/w file system. Please go through the release notes for more details. https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/information-products/topic-collections/release-notes/15.1/topic-83367.html#rn-junos-ex-new-and-changed-features

     

    Note: Junos Web management, new J-Web distribution model was introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, and the same model is supported in Junos OS Release 15.1R1 and later. The model provides two packages:

    • The J-Web Platform package—Installed as part of Junos OS; provides basic functionalities of J-Web.
    • The J-Web Application package—Optionally installable package; provides complete functionalities of J-Web.

     

    You shouldn't have any issues with other packages or for its function. Could you get output of "show version detail".

    JUNOS Packet Forwarding Engine Enterprise Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Routing Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Web Management [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS FIPS mode utilities [12.3R11.2]

    JUNOS Routing Software Suite [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS Web Management [12.3R11.2]
    JUNOS FIPS mode utilities [12.3R11.2]

    Surresh,

     

    There is no requirement to add package manually other than the j-web package for EX (that too only if you manage EX3300 through jweb and not other wise).  BTW, why did we roll back to 12.3? was there any issues?

     

    Here is my lab node running 15.1R6, when you run show version, it will just indicate the basic details such as version, hostname/ model.

    Hi Karan,

     

    Thanks for the response.

     

    The reason I rolled back was, there was no connectivity and interfaces were down/down. 

     

    ge-0/0/0                down  down

    ge-0/0/10               down  down

    ge-0/0/21               down  down

     

    ae0 up down
    ae1 up down
    ae2 up down
    ae3 up down

    etc etc

     

    The interfaces above supposed to be up/up. 

     

    Unfortunately, I did not issue show version detail at that time. After the upgrade, I did compare the active config with previous working config and they were identical. 

     

    Not sure why the interfaces were down.

    Thanks for quick update, Post upgrade, did you check if your FPC/PIC were up/online?

    Hi Karan,

     

    I did not check 😞 

     

    As I did not see the packages on show version, I quickly came to  a conclusion and rolled the software back. 

     

    Is there any reason for the FPC/PIC to stay down?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Surresh,

     

    Post upgrade, it may take few mins for FPC to up & then couple of mins PIC to come up..

    But in any case, if your interface is down (admin down), you should do basic verification like this status of FPC/PIC post upgrade.. and then check the local Interface/IFD/IFL, remote link & so on.

     

    If the FPC remains offline for more 15~20 mins post upgrade, should try to run:

    request chassis pic fpc-slot <fpc no.> online

     

    If FPC is online and so is the PIC, then check if vc-ports are up

     

    show virtaul-chassis vc-ports

     

    Also, verify the configuration & check if any configuration line slipped out post upgrade.

    I would suggest you log a ticket with JTAC on standby & perform the upgrade. Post upgrade JTAC would proactively assist you in case of any issue as such.

    Hi Karan,

     

    Thanks for the quick response. I did wait approximately 10-15 mins for the interfaces to come back up. 

     

    We are going to raise a ticket with JTAC and will do the upgrade again.

     

    Thanks again 🙂
