either from cisco or mikrotik side.

So why you have not upgraded first to 6.40.7 (bugfix) with old bridge implementation?
Why are you upgraded working hotel infrastructure to RC version? RC is test version so upgrade could fail.

BEWARE !
Updating from 5.xx (5.27 I think) to this version will result in inaccessible device ! It will enter reboot loop.
I've done it on 15 pcs of rb751 and rb951-2n.
Netinstall will fix if you mess up.
