Goto System > Advanced > sysctl.conf and delete the above variables. The reason why the above settings are still there is because you didn't disable tunables before the upgrade.

Depending on the status of the 'Enable Tunables' checkbox, the following tunables were added/removed to/from sysctl.conf. The checkbox has been removed with commit #6470, leaving sysctl.conf in its current state:

Hi JoseMR,

I thinking about a fresh 12.x RootOnZFS install and I know, I can split for example an SSD drive to contain not only the boot zfs volume, but for example a data or L2arc volume too. I'm interested in the L2arc one. Can you write me some how to?
My thought is that I have a 120GB SSD that made up the boot, the swap, and an L2arc partitions. How can I do that at install? I know I can specify the swap size and there is an option to make a (for example) data partition. But what I want is a boot, a swap, maybe some data and an L2arc. Can you give me some instructions to do that? Is it possible to make not an entire device for L2arc cache? Or I must create a volume for that on the remaining space of my boot device after install in the webgui?
Hi, All you have to do is the normal RootOnZFS install option with swap and customized root space, after installation there will be an unused/unformatted space on your boot disk for your own specifics needs, so just adding an extra partition(regarding your partitioning scheme) you can use as what you want, i.e L2ARC which is the most common usage case.

As for the "Create user Data Option", not to be confused with a partition but a dedicated ZFS/Dataset, this was added to maintain similar functionality like the the older Full/UFS platform.

Please if you still decide on install RootOnZFS, make a new thread so we can help you there creating the additional partition, and keep keep this thread in topic.

Hello all,
is it possible to upgrade 11.2.0.4-6625 embedded to 12.0.0.4-6743 embedded via `System-Firmware update' web interface?
Thank you!

Hello, welcome to the forum.

Directly taken from the README file:
Do NOT upgrade servers lower than XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4.6154
========================================================
Upgrading XigmaNAS® "Embedded" or "Full" from any version below XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4.6154 by
webgui or from LiveCD/USB will be problematic!!!
Please download and save your config from WebGUI first and backup all files from the second data partition
if used on the install media! Now you can perform a reinstall from LiveCD/USB, after installation you
can restore your previously saved config.

It's appears that your system meet the minimum version to upgrade, however always make a recent config backup before upgrade attempts, even more wen upgrading to a major version.

is the Random Kernel panic in Baytrail System finally resolved with this build? FreeNas and Xigmanas face the same issue, so I gues sits related to a buggy FreeBSD.

Thanks for reporting

Hello Devs,

i made a fresh install of 6743 yesterday and get the following lines about 25 times directly after boot and 5-10 more about 5 minutes later:

Code: Select all

1 2019-06-19T09:04:48.516680-01:00 xigmanas.local smbd 2261 - - inotify_rm_watch returned Invalid argument
The only service active is cifs, 11.0.x did run fine before on the same machine. Anything to worry about? Didn't run in any other problems.

Hello,

yesterday I tried to upgrade to XigmaNAS 12.0.0.4.6743 on my HPE Microserver Gen 8 (see signature). Intention was to boot XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso to make a clean embedded install then import backup config.xml and ZFS pool configuration.

But my HPE Microserver doesn't even boot XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso. Directly after a seemingly clean boot process, the computer suddenly performs a reset and then remains at 90% POST. I have to switch off the computer hard by pull the power cable for a few minutes, because the computer does not restart even after a normal warm boot/reset and hangs at 90% POST. If I unplug the power cable and restart the computer, it will restart normally, some BIOS options are then back to default values. Of course the XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso mounted with ilO4 is no longer active and the computer starts again from the still unchanged old XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4 - Omnius (Revision 6766) embeded installation on the internal SD card.

Any hints from HPE Microserver owners? System firmware is J06 05/21/2018, iLO 2.70 Advanced.

Did you attempted to reproduce the situation again? I am still on 11.2.0.4 rev. 6743 and never yet tried 12.0. But I experienced some problems with upsmon when updated embedded 11.2 from 6625 to 6743 via WebGUI. See this /viewtopic.php?p=90960#p90960 and further posts. So I was forced to do fresh install of 6743 from LiveCD and experienced severe problems with virtual LiveCD mounted with iLO4 v.2.70. I've tried standalone iLO console, Java WebStart Console and new HTML5 console. My feeling is that something is broken in iLO 2.70 and virtual media is unstable. So may be your problem is not related to XigmaNAS 12.0 but to iLO. I have a lot of routine experience in using virtual boot media with previous versions of iLO and everything was smooth.

So my advice is to try again and again while carefully looking at the messages during boot to identify any warnings or errors. You may also use a "record option" of remote console to record the whole boot process and analyze further for any warning or error messages.

I will appreciate if you share the results from next attempts. Unfortunately as of today I am not planning to migrate do 12.0 and probably will wait until Python 3 is included in the release. The main reason is that I will travel during next 2 weeks and want to have my XigmaNAS server stable and available for remote access.

EDIT:
There is newer BIOS available - 2019.04.04(12 jun 2019) I already flashed it.
When speaking that the virtual media is unstable I mean that the virtual CD occasionally has been disconnected. That's the reason I switched my client PC network connection from Wi-Fi to wired thinking I have a Wi-Fi problem. But it happened again while LAN connected. Finally the third attempt to boot and install from virtual LiveCD was successful.

So I just updates System ROM to J06 04/04/2019 and will give it a try later to boot XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso.

I think it definitely has something to do with the aging hardware of the HPE Microserver Gen 8. As long as my HPE Microserver Gen 8 doesn't boot cleanly the ISO I stay on XigmaNAS 11.2. (How could I...? :mrgreen: )

Edit:

I'm thankful that iLO 2.70 finally supports HTML5 based remote console to get away from the Java remote console crap, but it's still quite a cramp to iLO 2.70. Booting a locally mounted ISO image is a real cramp as it boots extremely slowly. It was much better to use an ISO image mounted via http:// as usual...

I don't think that new BIOS will have significant effect. According to my knowledge it is just a new Intel microcode applied related to certain vulnerabilities.

I confirm the HTML5 very slow boots. But I have problem to mount virtual CD via iLO Web Interface - the buttons are greyed. So I mount the CD via remote console. I have no local CD drive attached to Microserver, so I am using only remotely mounted ISO images.

System ROM updated to to J06 04/04/2019 did not solve the problem booting XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso. My HPE Microserver Gen8 still performs a reset while booting the ISO and then remains at 90% POST.

(Unplugging the power cable will bring my HPE MIcroserver Gen8 back to life with simultaneous swapping back to backup System ROM J06 05/21/2018. Swapping back again from backup System ROM J06 05/21/2018 to System ROM to J06 04/04/2019 again is no problem and the HPE Microserver Gen8 keeps booting the installed XigmaNAS 11.2.)

So I need further help… :cry:

System ROM updated to to J06 04/04/2019 did not solve the problem booting XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso. My HPE Microserver Gen8 still performs a reset while booting the ISO and then remains at 90% POST.
Did you recorded the boot with iLO? This will help to see in what stage exactly the reset happens.

I'm not very familiar with the deeper functions of iLO4. How can I record the boot process via iLO4? Or is it simply about iLO Event Log?

See the picture attached. This is a snapshot of standalone iLO remote console app, but such functionality I beleive is available also on web versons - HTML5 and Java. The small red button in the lower part is "record" button (I marked it with red circle). When you press it everything seen on the remote console screen is recorded in so-called "iLO video file", which has .ilo extention. So you may record the whole boot starting from POST messages and ending with either final screen (if fully booted) or the last commnad executed before crash. Then you may load this file and replay it with console app. You may stop, forward or rewind like just watching a video. That will help you to identify exactly when and why crash happens.

Should I still see these? I thought the issue was fixed in this release. I will ignore as previously advised.

same answer:
Goto System > Advanced > sysctl.conf and delete the above variables. The reason why the above settings are still there is because you didn't disable tunables before the upgrade.

Depending on the status of the 'Enable Tunables' checkbox, the following tunables were added/removed to/from sysctl.conf. The checkbox has been removed with commit #6470, leaving sysctl.conf in its current state:

Hello,

yesterday I tried to upgrade to XigmaNAS 12.0.0.4.6743 on my HPE Microserver Gen 8 (see signature). Intention was to boot XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso to make a clean embedded install then import backup config.xml and ZFS pool configuration.

But my HPE Microserver doesn't even boot XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso. Directly after a seemingly clean boot process, the computer suddenly performs a reset and then remains at 90% POST. I have to switch off the computer hard by pull the power cable for a few minutes, because the computer does not restart even after a normal warm boot/reset and hangs at 90% POST. If I unplug the power cable and restart the computer, it will restart normally, some BIOS options are then back to default values. Of course the XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso mounted with ilO4 is no longer active and the computer starts again from the still unchanged old XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4 - Omnius (Revision 6766) embeded installation on the internal SD card.

Any hints from HPE Microserver owners? System firmware is J06 05/21/2018, iLO 2.70 Advanced.
I've been able to narrow the problem down a little now. It seems to be an incompatibility between XigmaNAS 12.x and my LSI SAS 9211-8i HBA controller (IT mode firmware SAS2008-IT 20.00.04.00, MPT2BIOS-7.39.00.00 (2014.09.18). As soon as I disable the LSI SAS 9211-8i HBA controller in the HPE Microserver Gen8 BIOS under PCI Device Enable/Disable, the HPE Microserver Gen8 starts with mounted XigmaNAS x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso without problems.

Edit:

It seems to be definitely due to the LSI SAS 9211-8i HBA controller. It offers in its own BIOS settings an option "Boot Support" with the options "Enable OS only", "Enable BIOS & OS", "Enable BIOS only" and "Disable". As long as no option containing "...BIOS..." has been selected here, XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-12.0.0.4.6743.iso starts without problems. The devices attached to the HBA are not displayed during POST, but appear in the boot log of XigmaNAS and are also recognized as available drives under the WebGUI.

So can it have something to do with the fact that XigmaNAS >12.x offers the RootOnZFS option and there is an access conflict to the HBA of BIOS and/or XigmaNAS?

hello,

I have installed the version 12.0.0.4.6766 - Reticulus (previously the 6743) full rootonzfs and without problem in a microGen8.

I have installed an ibm serveraid m 1510 controller, and I only had a problem in a reinstallation that did not detect the two system disks that are in mirror.

I don't know why, I had to reconfigure from the Bios the mode of the controller (legacy, ahci, ....)

My system rom: System ROM J06 11/02/2015
iLO version: LO Firmware Version 2.55 Aug 16 2017
XigmaNAS version 12.0.0.4.6881 - Reticulus RootOnZFS (mirror disk)
