  • 1.  Juniper WRL Error :- Attempted double use of PCI slot

    Posted 09-22-2021 05:55
    Team,

    Context :- vSRX upgrade using command "request system software add <19.x.> no-validate un-link"

    Issue :- Upgrade Fails & the VM never boots UP.

    Troubleshooting Done :-
    - Console to the VM shows the same stuck at WRL localhost prompt.
    - Logging into it further and analyzing the libvirt logs within WRL it reveals the following error :-

    2021-09-15 13:42:44.776+0000: 1280: error : qemuDomainPCIAddressReserveAddr:19955
     : XML error: Attempted double use of PCI slot 0000:00:03.0 (may need "multifuncc
    tion='on'" for device on function 0)
    - Quick Google shows error could relate to if the XML is for some reason using same PCI for 2 usecase, maybe 2 discs or ports but the XML for the VNF is clean with all unique pci address.

    Ask :- Any idea on this error ?

    Hi,
    which release are you upgrading from? (show version brief)
    which release are you upgrading to? (exact file name)
    which hypervisor are you using?
    why no-validate? What happens if you use it?
    Regards
    Ulf

    Ulf,
    Thanks for responding !

    It was a minor upgrade within 19.3
    Running on a CPE - NFX250
    no-validate -- that is a knob to exclude the config validation to the new version.

    Between, the issue seems to be a memory issue. Will next clean up space and retry.
