No SwOS option on CRS312-4C+8XG-RM

Fri Dec 25, 2020 3:34 am

Hi,
Just purchased CRS312-4C+8XG-RM with the intent of using it as L2 device (I have CCR1009-7G-1C-1S+ in place for routing). CRS312-4C+8XG-RM came with 6.45.9 as factory FW.

I've tried to find an option to select a Boot OS in both WebFig and WinBox but it is completely missing. I've also upgraded the FW to 6.48 but it did not bring the option to select Boot OS :-( Online search did not help: this CRS is listed as DualBoot device and it is not!

I found another post here at the forums for CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+ viewtopic.php?f=17&t=158326 that is also missing SwOS which was initially in the specs but then Mikrotik removed that option, apparently because SwOS for this model is still being tested almost a year after it hit the market! I am wondering if this is the same situation with CRS312-4C+8XG-RM...

So, question to Mikrotik or somebody familiar: does CRS312-4C+8XG-RM support SwOS, and if so, how to boot into it?

Thanks.

P.S. Tried /system routerboard settings set boot-os=swos as well, did not work.

Turns out to be a bug in the software/firmware. Contact support.

Before you pull your hair out... It's not as simple as just updating to the newest version of RouterOS. I blindly did that and wish I had better understood what else is needed.

Having now solved it, go read my post on this other thread with the step-by-step instructions to get SwOS running on the CRS312-4C+8XG-RM.
