Failed CSPC Upgrade to 2.8.1.2 and .4

                My CSPC system has not collected anything since March when it failed the automatic upgrade to 2.8.1.2.  Not realizing that, I have tried to perform a manual upgrade to 2.8.1.4, but this has not gone well. 

  • The VM will not boot cleanly failing to maintenance mode.
  • Initially, the disk was full.  Logging in as root, I was able to delete old upgrade ZIP files, pare down large log files, and free almost 10 GB of space.
  • Booting still fails to maintenance mode.
  • Using Ctrl+D to continue, the VM appears to boot, but after 10-30 minutes, it seems to reload on its own to a new system.
  • SSH works, the web GUI works some, but anything to do with updating/upgrading locks up in the GUI.
  • During this time, both CPU’s are running at 40-70% constantly, but a listing of processes using top (as root) does not show enough CPU in the listed processes to make the math work.
  • When trying to manually install the upgrade, it errors with “adminshell service is not up , please try installation after some time”.
  • After leaving the system in this state overnight (at least 15 hours), the CPU is still running high without an identifiable process in top, and the adminshell is still not running.

Is there any way to fix this current installation such that it works as expected?

If I need to start from scratch with a new image, is there any way to save the configuration from the existing installation first such that it may be applied to the new installation and avoid the long process of configuring everything?

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael

Re: Failed CSPC Upgrade to 2.8.1.2 and .4

Hello Michael,

 

let me get some data on it to see if can  be helped

on the maintenance mode have you run the check disk command ?

 

From root send the following commands:

 

# ls  -larth /var/log

# df -k

# ps -ef

# tail - 50 /opt/LCM/logs/install

Hello Michael,

on the maintenance mode have you run the check disk command ?

 

From root send the following commands:

 

.# ls  -larth /var/log

.# df -f

No, I have not run an fsck.  I guess I should have thought of that one after I created some free space.

Here is the putty log:

Re: Failed CSPC Upgrade to 2.8.1.2 and .4

thank you for your detailed Information.

 

based on the output - You have deployed the tiny version of the collector which is only using for testing ( just a few devices and not ongoing process. so when you add the process for upgrade the box cannot handle it if it was "sort" of working with the tiny version.

please let me know what version of Vmware ESxi host you are running and please do the command below and let me know

# free -m

 

if it shows only 2 gig of mem then you do have the tiny version and not enough overall resources to run an official SNTC CSPC
Please confirm and let me know.

Re: Failed CSPC Upgrade to 2.8.1.2 and .4

Hmm, that could be, but it looks like I have 3 GB of RAM, only 2 CPU's and a 40 GB HD.

I also found that MySQL would not launch until I deleted the zero byte tc.log file.

Re: Failed CSPC Upgrade to 2.8.1.2 and .4

 

 

       Total memory is showing less than the required.  So my recommendation is to redeploy to the "small" version of the collector. Because even if you fix it to work temporarily this problem will reoccur with frequency,  I did not see your response of the Vmware ESxi host software version.

     I think for  a deployment the only thing you need essentially to export is the credentials and the list of managed devices  then you should be able to redeploy.  Just in case just power off the original redeploy a new image and if needed to return to the old one you can.  If not after the redeploy you can delete it.  the selection of the resources  of the appliance occur on the same file install for all types.

export device list : page 8 chapter 3

export credentials: page 2 chapter 6  (is not on the headers but the button is just beside the import one)
