    What is this alarm? I upgraded 2 Juniper EX3200s to 11.4R4.4 and I got this alarm.

     

    Working on isolating the trouble right now. If anyone has crossed this bridge, please let me know what the solution is.

    I rolled the 2 devices down to JUNOS 11.4R2.14

     

    jinstall-ex-3200-11.4R2.14-domestic-signed.tgz

     

    This cleared the alarms on the EX3200s, I then upgraded back to 11.4R4.4 and the alarm appeared again.

    Ok, so I figured it out. If anyone ever has this problem in the future, follow these steps to correct:

     

    1) Load the latest JLoader for EX3200, you can find it here:

     

    https://download.juniper.net/software/junos/specials/jloader/jloader-ex-3242-11.3I20110326_0802_hmerge-signed.tgz

     

    2) Load the JUNOS Image, in my case it was 11.4R4.4, you can find it here:

     

    http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/?p=ex3200#sw

     

    3) Do the whole requesy system add validate /var/tmp/ procedure, in my case it was as follows:

     

    root@ex3200> request system software add validate /var/tmp/jloader-ex-3242-11.3I20110326_0802_hmerge-signed.tgz

    Legend thanks, had the same issue with 3 x EX4200 switches in a VC. Did as you've outlined above and solved my issue too. Thanks

    I just ran into this in a lab. I actually thought you only needed a new jloader when going from before pre-dual root partitions came out (10.4). 

     

    Maybe I should make it a habit to install a new jloader every time I upgrade whether it needs it or not.

    This problem is resolved with Jloader, used before install the Junos Software.
