system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

    Hi, I just upgraded an srx210 to 11.2r3 and after installation I had a solid amber alarm light on. So I did a 'show system alarms' and the output I received was:

     

    root@pl-rtr-01> show system alarms

    1 alarms currently active

    Alarm time Class Description

    2011-11-10 16:03:29 EST Minor Autorecovery information needs to be saved

     

    I can't find any information on this. I guess I am looking in the wrong places. The only two alarms I could find for system were invalid license and no rescue config. The alarm I got kind of sounds like no recuse config, but I saved mine and the light didn't go off. Any help would be appreciated. Just as a side not, I upgraded the web server to module-mode, and it is definitely much faster. I don't like using it, but when I have to it is not painfully slow anymore. Thanks

    This sounds like you don't have a rescue configuration saved.  This is a fallback configuration that can be used in case of problems.

     

    To save the current configuration as the rescue configuration use this command.

     

    request system configuration rescue save

    Thanks spuluka, but that was the first thing I tried, from the CLI first and then from the J-Web interface.  My rescue config saved successfully both times, but the light is still there and the alarm is still there when I do 'show system alarms'.  I can view my rescue config with 'show configuration rescue'.

     

    Any other ideas?  Maybe if I reboot it will catch that I have the rescue config?

    Interesting, It looks like a new feature.  I see this in the release notes Junos OS 11.2

     

     Autorecovery—This feature is supported on dual-partitioned SRX100, SRX210, SRX220, SRX240, and SRX650 Services Gateways. With this feature, disk partitioning, configuration, and licenses information can be recovered in case of corruption.


    This feature provides the following functions:


    •    Detect corruptions in disk partitioning during system bootup and attempt to recover partitions automatically
    •    Detect corruptions in the Junos OS configuration during system bootup and attempt to recover the configuration automatically
    •    Detect corruptions in Junos OS licenses during system bootup and attempt to recover licenses automatically
    Table 8 on page 129 lists the supported CLI commands and its description: Table 8: Supported CLI Commands for

     

    Autorecovery
    request system autorecovery state save    

     

    Saves current state of the disk partitioning, configuration, and licenses for autorecovery.


    request system autorecovery state clear
    Clears all saved autorecovery information.


    show system autorecovery state    

    Performs checks and shows status of all autorecovered items.

    Thanks a lot spuluka.  That is spot on.  I did end up rebooting it and the alarm light went off, but this was definitely the issue.

     

    *********> show system autorecovery state
    Configuration:
      File             Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
      rescue.conf.gz   Saved                   Passed             None
    BSD Labels:
      Slice            Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
      s1               Saved                   Passed             None
      s2               Saved                   Passed             None
      s3               Saved                   Passed             None
      s4               Saved                   Passed             None

     

    I'm not exactly sure when this backup took place.  I didn't use the save version of that command, it was like that when I checked.

     

    Thanks again.

    Did the autorecovery save command and the Amber Light went off immediately, even without having to reboot the device.

    just sumbled on this issue.

    playing with an srx240 with 12.1

    when you do rescue using the web interface the light does not go out.

    status from cli:

    root@wally> show system autorecovery state
    Configuration:
      File             Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
      rescue.conf.gz   Saved                   Passed             None
    BSD Labels:
      Slice            Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
      s1               Saved                   Passed             None
      s2               Saved                   Passed             None
      s3               Saved                   Passed             None
      s4               Saved                   Passed             None

     

    but when I give:

    root@wally> request system autorecovery state save
    Saving config recovery information
    Saving license recovery information
    Saving BSD label recovery information.

     

    the light goes out.

     

    Thanks for the info.

    request system configuration rescue save
    request system autorecovery state save

    Doing both of those certainly worked for me. I had another one where a reboot after cleared it up after just the "rescue save" but I'm sure not everyone has the window to do the reboot.

    Hi

     

    I have the same problem but when I do both the above commands and then issue show system alarms showing on node1 of the HA pair.

     

    dhughes@DBSA1-IFWPJS2201> show system alarms
    node0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    No alarms currently active

    node1:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You need to run this command individually on both nodes.

    HI Anand,

     

    Thanks for the response.

     

    This may sound like a stupid question but how to I run this command on node 1?

     

    Thanks

    You will need to be on the CLI of the secondary node and not the active one whenyou run the command.

     

    SSH to the dedicated mgmt address for the secondary node instead of the shared ip address.

    Hi Thanks for the response

     

    I managed to get logged into the node 1 by using

     

    request routing-instance login node 1

    then

    request system autorecovery state save

     

    this resolved my issue

     

    Thanks

    Thanks as well, this helped.  I did both commands on srx345.
