Version 6.42rc24 has been released.

Changes since previous release:

*) crs3xx - added initial hw-offload support for 802.3ad and balance-xor bonding
*) export - fixed "/system routerboard mode-button" compact export;

Re: v6.42rc [release candidate] is released!

Thu Feb 08, 2018 5:28 pm

this AM I Installed [upgraded] 6.42rc24 on my CCR1009 and now no connectivity --- Winbox cannot discover the Router

How do I recover from this please?

[EDIT] following is what I did to recover:
1. connect my serial cable
2. connect my Ethernet cable to ether7
3. run netinstall
4. reboot the CCR1009 ... use the reset button and hold reset in then power up the router, observer the netinstall screen until it recognizes the router THEN release the reset
5.via netinstall install RouterOS v6.41
6. reconfigure the CCR1009 then upgrade to 6.42rc24 .... so far everything is OK

Thanks to Dan from https://www.balticnetworks.com/ for the excellent help.

Access the router over physical console, or netinstall it!

CHR v6.42rc24 persist the problem about Missing OS.
I asked to a friend to configure and boot VHDX image on Hyper-V over windows 10.
The result? Fail.

Strods,

Doesn't this also have the kernel crash fix for CCR introduced in 6.41.1?

@Strods

Since this new crs Poe series is out, so this version belongs to the same of crs1xx having the same features or it have new features available on crs3xx series?

I bricked my RB850Gx2 when updating to 6.42rc23...
It did not came up and WinBox did not find any mac-address neighbours any of the interfaces.
Clearing config (using hardware reset button) did not work either, I had to use netinstall to get it back to life. :(

Cheers, Airell.

It would be nice to finally get LACP on the CRS125. the fact that we haven't got it by now and the changelog only mentions the CRS3XX series doesn't fill me with much hope though.

Hi, rc24 didn't only kill one crs1009, it does the same with an rb1100ah4, both out-of-the-box with default configuration. Netinstall brought them back to life.

Re: v6.42rc [release candidate] is released!

Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:50 am

Main part of upgrade process happens on old version.

For example, rc21 -> rc23. If upgrade fails, then it is caused by rc21 version. As you can see in changelog we are still working on upgrade improvements. At the moment latest fixes are included in rc23. You can test upgrade improvements when upgrading from rc23 to, for example, rc24.

At the moment we are not aware about any problems with upgrade starting from 6.42rc23 version.

In future, if you experience problems with upgrade, then remember to mention from which precise RouterOS version and to which you made an upgrade.

Hi,
I did the upgrade to rc24 on both the ccr1009 and the rb1100ahx4 from rc20. Both were bricked then.

v6.42rc [release candidate] is released!

Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:36 am

I bricked my CCR1036-8G-2S+ too after flashing rc24 - it got stuck at "Starting services" - tried resetting configurations but nothing works. I managed to force etherboot via serial console but bootp kept trying to connect PC to the router (port 8 ) without success so netinstall failed too. What else can I do?

Are you serious about this?
Did you saw my previous posts?
> viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&start=150#p641249
> viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&start=150#p641262
> viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&p=641436#p641289

When has a clean config, upgrade occours normally, but when have various settings, the CHR fail to start or no detect correctly the interfaces.
I reported the problems with CHR and when I download a image from MT's website, I can't use a new image because the ROS doesn't boot and show that message "Missing OS"... this isn't a simple problem from "upgarde", the image available is a problem itself.
To me, this isn't a upgrade problem and yes a "Oops!" in the commit of code with problems to the rc branch.

Re: v6.42rc [release candidate] is released!

We did explain upgrade process few posts ago. Upgrade happens on old version not on the one which you want to install:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&p=641456#p641392

Upgrade from 6.42rc20 (not from rc23):
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&start=150#p641249
If I did understand post correctly, then this is about fresh installation, not an upgrade:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&start=150#p641262
Version from which upgrade was made is not mentioned:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129034&p=641436#p641289

I would also like to remind that rc versions are beta versions for RouterOS enthusiasts who are willing to test new features and can Netinstall/re-install RouterOS if necessary.

On the first link, the rc24 hadn't out yet.
On the second link, is about fresh install (rc23 and rc24) where I showed that images don't work, no boot. Also I showed a upgrade over a fresh install (6.41.1 > rc24), worked with no problems.
On the third link, is about a fresh install (rc24) over another platform of virtualizer, to show that problem not occur only on VirtualBox.

On the two last links, I tried to say that rc23 and rc24 doesn't work from a fresh install, they are bricked in the source, the MT's webiste.

The SHA256 of VDI image is ok, then isn't corrupted by download. But if I try to boot them, I receive that message that doesn't have a OS.
[kaze@hueragem3 Downloads]$ sha256sum -c chr-6.42rc24.vdi.sha256
chr-6.42rc24.vdi: OK
If a fresh install don't work, is complicate to use a CHR above of rc20... I'm trying to help about problems, I saw them, are serious and were reported.
I tried to help.
I hope that now is more clear than before.

Remind that CHR don't have Netinstall mode.
I know how the version works on MikroTik and how to be not 7uck3d, and that is why the CHR is my guinea pig, so isn't a problem if they die on upgarde process.

Thanks strods for reply.

update from .20 to .24 build made my ccr1036 hang totally on boot, it did not even respond to reset button.
Netinstall was the only thing that saved the day.
Be careful please with this update!

Did someone tried to do a downgrade to rc18 or more old and then upgrade to rc24?
I saw that 6.42rc20 is a bomb as origin of upgrade to rc23/rc24.

Edit:
Well, I did upgrade on two RB: hap ac lite (rc14) and RB951Ui-2HnD (rc20).
Both to rc24, and no problems with upgrade.
Maybe isn't be a bomb, but...

I saw that 6.42rc20 is a bomb as origin of upgrade to rc23/rc24.
Well, I made some tests with CHR only.
CHR images that not have the "Missing OS" is rc15 and below.
I took a rc15 image and did upgrade to rc20 using routeros-x86 npk package, then I rebooted and then made a upgrade from rc20 to rc24, mac-address filled with zero as result.
Before upgrade to rc24, I made a clone from rc20.
I did downgrade from rc20 to rc18 and then, upgrade from rc18 to rc24, Vbox closes the VM due crash to start CHR. :lol:
Upgrade from rc15 to rc24 have no problems.

Simplifying, downgrade from rc18 and above isn't a option, the better is wait in rc15 for newer versions.
If you are in rc18 and rc20, well, prepare your netinstall. :)

Ok So I tested on a CRS326-24G-2S+ but neither winbox nor cli shows anything anywhere. Initial maybe initial not ready for test yet or do I need to do something other then define bond and add the bond to the bridge?

When I update my CHR (under ESXi) from 6.42rc20 to 6.42rc24 there is a problem with the interfaces. Looking on the console I see that there
is only ether1 and the references to ether2 are replaced by *2 but both interfaces fail to work. "direct route" is no longer present (default route is)

I understand the real cause is in rc20 and I will need to do a fresh install as I don't have a snapshot backup with older version anymore...
(restoring to rc20 made it working again but update will of course kill it)

Could MikroTik please fix BGP peer exports not containing 'remote-as=64512'. We note this behavior on both a 6.41 CHR and CCR1036:
/routing bgp peer
  add default-originate=if-installed in-filter=X-in name=Y out-filter=X-out remote-address=1.1.1.2 tcp-md5-key=secret123 ttl=default remote-as=64512

Then review resulting export:
[admin@router] > /routing bgp peer export
  /routing bgp peer
    add default-originate=if-installed in-filter=X-in name=Y out-filter=X-out remote-address=1.1.1.2 tcp-md5-key=secret123 ttl=default

If this is correct:
nstream is a wireless protocol mikrotik proprietary.
(found using google)
Then I guess that nstreme-plus is the same as nstreme with some more funtion.

Googling nstreme is not the answer, protocols can vary vastly. nstreme and NV2 (nstreme version 2) are entirely different. I want details on what is actually different in nstreme plus and would like to know if it was developed specifically for any type of hardware (there have been many complaints with nstreme and nv2 on AC). We have abandoned mikrotik for wireless on 2.4 and 5ghz but still rely on them for some remaining 900mhz customers. I want to know if this will be applicable for us.

Dear Mikrotik,

Thank you for including the option for automatic upgrade of the bootloader. Since the new version numbering scheme for routerboot was introduced, this option was the only sensible thing to include. Can you also though make it automatically perform the second -required- reboot? From the moment it is checked, it means that the user desires routerboot to be automatically upgraded when routeros is upgraded. Not performing the reboot essentially leaves the bootloader upgrade process half-finished. It makes sense to complete it by automatically rebooting the unit a second time. It go one step further, I would suggest to have both steps of the upgrade (upgrade and reboot) take place if possible before starting any other services or before the double beep. Possibly you could even introduce a special beep pattern during boot to signal that the bootloder is taking place, maybe a long then short one.

Thank you.

We have some remaining sites with MT wireless. Forced to replace them by customer demands. Would love to do a SW upgrade to keep them running.

@MT could you please describe what nstreme plus will do better ?

The Dude Client is broken after updating to 6.42rc24:
Please wait while updating:
"Bad http response from cloud"


Where is the download for the windows-client?

Edit:
It seems like the Dude-Client tries to fetch this URL:
https://upgrade.mikrotik.com/routeros/6 ... 42rc24.tgz
But it just throws this error message:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<Error>

</Error>
I tried a few version numbers. It seems that 6.42rc20 is the newest Dude-Client downloadable.

Mikrotik: fix this please.

Updated two test units, eager to tinker.

There are no new nstreme options, nothing for nv2, nada.

Where/how do we access this and what do they do?

So, if we are under r20 and don't want to "clean flash", we're screwed and can't upgrade, right ?

Is it normal that installing 6.42rc24 does not correctly create a bootable system disk when used on x86 hardware? Comes up with "no OS found" or such. 6.42rc15 was just fine in that respect.

Cheers

!) tile - improved overall system performance and stability ("/system routerboard upgrade" required);

Anyone have any details as to what this means?

We have started a massive and very expensive migration to other vendor due to low wireless performance with NV2, is it possible to know something about nstreme plus?

I know it's hard for mikortik reveal own strategy but we are working not joking and if we can save money it 'll be very appreciated.

Normis please

Thank you in advance Giuseppe

Nstreme-plus is almost the same Nstreme protocol but with some additional tweaks to get better compatibility with latest ARM based wireless chipset hardware that we started to release recently.

So no sync options or anything like that?

Mate, Mikrotik is mainly routing. Wireless is a peripheral offering, not core business for them. They do not have the horsepower to pursue both of them equally. If you want wireless, go to one of the guys that do that as their main business and then combine the best of both worlds.

*) radius - increase allowed RADIUS server timeout to 60s;

To add an important reason to the too short limit problem of timeout in radius:
Successful authentications are answered immediately (in order of milliseconds if possible), but to protect the server from brute-force attacks and DOS-type attacks, radius is usually configured in order that in case of failed authentication, the response is delayed for a longer time (usually 4 or 5 seconds). In that way the attack slows down and is not effective.

For that it is important to be able to configure a "large" timeout time.
