v6.45.2 [stable] is released!

Fri Jul 19, 2019 1:12 pm

RouterOS version 6.45.2 has been released in public "stable" channel!

Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

What's new in 6.45.2 (2019-Jul-17 10:04):

Important note!!!
Due to removal of compatibility with old version passwords in this version, downgrading to any version prior to v6.43 (v6.42.12 and older) will clear all user passwords and allow password-less authentication. Please secure your router after downgrading.
Old API authentication method will also no longer work, see documentation for new login procedure:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:API#Initial_login


Changes in this release:

*) bonding - fixed bonding running status after reboot when using other bonds as slave interfaces (introduced in v6.45);
*) cloud - properly stop "time-zone-autodetect" after disable;
*) interface - fixed missing PWR-LINE section on PL7411-2nD and PL6411-2nD (introduced v6.44);
*) ipsec - added "connection-mark" parameter for mode-config initiator;
*) ipsec - allow peer argument only for "encrypt" policies (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec - fixed peer configuration migration from versions older than v6.43 (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec - improved stability for peer initialization (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec - show warning for policies with "unknown" peer;
*) ospf - fixed possible busy loop condition when accessing OSPF LSAs;
*) profile - added "internet-detect" process classificator;
*) radius - fixed "User-Password" encoding (introduced in v6.45);
*) ssh - do not enable "none-crypto" if "strong-crypto" is enabled on upgrade (introduced in v6.45);
*) ssh - fixed executed command output printing (introduced in v6.45);
*) supout - fixed supout file generation outside of internal storage with insufficient space;
*) upgrade - fixed "auto-upgrade" to use new style authentication (introduced in v6.45);
*) vlan - fixed "slave" flag for non-running interfaces (introduced in v6.45);
*) wireless - improved 802.11ac stability for all ARM devices with wireless;
*) wireless - improved range selection when distance set to "dynamic";

To upgrade, click "Check for updates" at /system package in your RouterOS configuration interface, or head to our download page: http://www.mikrotik.com/download

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after some problem has appeared on device

Please keep this forum topic strictly related to this particular RouterOS release.

Did I miss something? What was going wrong with cAP ac before this? Can you please give some details, please? Also, will it be backported to long term release?

I'm willing to bet that this is mostly related to wireless and 4011.

How did this happen? There is nothing related to SFP in the changelog and this is supposed to be a "stable" release. If there was something, anything changed related to SFP, then it needs to go in the changelog so admins can decide with full information if they want to do the upgrade.

Often there are small changes/adjustments/refactoring in the code that does not (should not) change any functionality, but unfortunately some issues may be introduced in such way. We will resolve the RB4011 SFP+ interface issue in the next stable build. I apologize for any inconvenience.

As for SNMPv3 and GRE issues. We are aware of these issues and are working on resolving them. However we much rather release a quicker update with fewer bug fixes which may help other users than waiting longer for issues that takes longer to fix.

Just bricked one of our CRS switches, connected via SFP to CCR. It was a testing one, but we still need to visit the site. How could SFP support get broken, if there are no SFP related changes? I expect fix to be released asap, not just in a mysterious stable release sometimes in the future?

Now that you know, it would be a good idea to put a line in the changelog:
Known bug: SFP problem with 4011. We do not recommend upgrading

Many people will upgrade over the weekend and save a lot of trouble... :) Thanks

Hi!
Continuing here since 6.45.1 topic is now locked. A few days ago I updated two RB450G from 6.42, one to 6.45.1 and one to 6.44.5. Both seemed to work fine at that time. I logged into them after upgrade and everthing worked. Now a few days later I was at the site again, now winbox ses only the 6.44.5 unit on the network. I know it is working since the PPP server running on it still works but ability to administrate it is gone, just like the fenomenon with the RB960PGS-PB I wrote about earlier in the 6.45.1 thread. I see no mention about something like this is fixed in 6.45.2 :(
Common to the first unit I wrote about is that they also contain a single bridge1 with all ports. Ip is set on bridge interface so almost the same config.

Kind regards
David

Please, can you write something concrete about this? I look on the manual and there is nothing about it. I have problem with bad policies generated from mode config (something like in 6.45.1 thread - client policy is generated with bad src-address, from other mode-config), so I need to know if there are some configuration changes needed.

Thank you.

Nice to see I am not the only one with the SFP problems on RB4100. But there is not even an attempt to fix the VPN issues everyone is still having, there was never a clear way to fix that in the v6.45.1 thread, and MT needs to have those settings in the Quick Set "VPN Access" checkbox setup, because the default still has broken VPN.

The Stable Channel is definitely not living up to its name, I do like that I see MT doing more active development recently, but we can't have key hardware go down when there is a security patch on the "Stable" channel.

"Stable" ? More like "Totally untested".
Glad I checked the thread before updating RB4011, I would have lost remote access by doing that.

This really raises the questions... do Mikrotik actually test the release version in their lab before releasing it? If it was some exotic bug that happens when running VPN over MPLS with some weird firewall settings, I would understand how that might be overlooked. But making SFP slot on your flagship router not work at all... do they have at least one RB4011 connected using SFP+ slot for testing? It's one of the most important features, reason why people buy that hardware.
At least put the warning at the begging of the changelog, so it's displayed in winbox, warning users of RB4011 not to upgrade. Or just pull this version completely, or at least for RB4011.

Perfect timing for a weekend, to spend it listening to angry customer calls...

We have not had any trouble in the last several releases until 6.45. We always watch the forum to see any issues that other people have before updating. I think the issue is coming from that they tried to push the 6.45.1 release out quickly cause of the cve and then tried to push this one out quickly to fix some of the issues. I think since we had a good run that we was bound to run into a bad firmware or 2 sometime. I want to thank everyone working on the patches and to keep up the good work. Mistakes and issues are bound to slip through. Internal testing can only catch so much. That's why we're need to test before blindly installing the firmware ourselves too.

I reported issues with IPSec and version 6.45.1. After all it looks like initiator device with old version caused this. Now that all devices have been updated I see no more issues.

May you could give a little more details here ? :-)
Anyhow I got the feeling that more of my devices connected to the 5GHz Band instead of 2.4GHz.
So I love the improvements. Thanks for that ! :-)

Clean install hAP lite.
ERROR: not enough disk space, 7.4MiB is required and only 7.4MiB free

Edit: Did have some backup files, removed upgrade OK

Edit2: After upgrade, no information about upgrade in the log, no information that router reboots. I think this is a more general problem than 6.45.2.

Dear Mikrotik,

When are you going to start testing your releases? I'm guessing never, since that would be a huge workflow change internally.
When I see this in the patch notes "*) ospf - fixed possible busy loop condition when accessing OSPF LSAs;" and my routers are experiencing that problem, I wonder how fixing unrelated issues to this causes this to break. So I update to 6.45.2 because the "STABLE 6.45.1" wasn't really stable after all, so is that a term Mikrotik just throws around to sound cool around the water cooler?
Now after I update to 6.45.2 stable, (ha ha the jokes on me!) I've had a kernel panic reboot one of my CCR-1072's. The watchdog did one, with no supout file and then a second one appears to be a kernel panic with no logs. At what point do I start to say to myself and peers; Mikrotik is screwed, they can't test their patches, stable releases are a lie, whats the product I should be looking at to replace this fiasco? I also will need to ask when are the Tilera units (CCR series) going to be extinct, since it seems all of this is most likely related to the 10 year old linux kernel that keeps trying to get patched.

I see that others are questioning this as well with the SPF problem and undoubtedly more issues.
Now if the scripted response is to send a suport.rif to the support email that's just a joke right? Since most everyone knows that it's just a black-hole that never sees any light.

I just need to feel comfortable then if I use a "stable" release that it's actually that, stable. So far this has been bullshit ever since 6.44! And it wouldn't be so bad if the patch notes weren't just a passing statement, like we all should have know that the bug was there and Mikrotik is just reiterating it. I realize that my opinion here will never amount to anything that looks like real change in the Mikrotik camp, it''s more for posterity and other users who may just want to know how the company they used to trust is operated now.

I've got a hAP-lite and hAP-mini in a test setup for OSPF routing, neither will upgrade. I deleted all files in the "Files" menu entry and it still won't upgrade. I rebooted them, still won't upgrade. The error is "not enough space". Maybe this is the end of the line for lower end devices?

I'd rather not wipe out the configs and do some kind of clean install if at all possible.

Perhaps before the wipe out you can try and uninstall unwanted packages to free more space.If that does not work either then you could also try a factory defaults and then upgrade as this will wipe out a few things.

Upgraded from 6.44.5 to 6.45.2 and now I cannot login to the CRS317 using ROMON since it suddenly sees no neighbours and OSPF doesent find a neighbour. Downgrade to 6.44.5 solves this, but not the autonegotiation issue we have on 317s with 1 gig SFPs that was introduced in 6.43 when Mikrotik implemented new autonegotiation module for SFPs.

Hi,

Are there any plans to check/fix the half duplex ethernet issue in v6.45? I keep on getting this message in a CRS326 switch.

ether16 excessive or late collision, link duplex mismatch?

This happens in half duplex ethernet interface and there is no mismatch according to config as I have forced the interface to half duplex mode. Forced or not forced to half duplex, the switch always reports this as a duplex mismatch as if it were set to full duplex and it seems like full-duplex=no has no effect at all.

/interface ethernet
set [ find default-name=ether16 ] full-duplex=no speed=10Mbps

Same interface some random times, usually once maybe twice a week, stops from responding and I have to disable and enable it from CLI or winbox to recover functionality again [Ticket#2018122022004844].

I've got a hAP-lite and hAP-mini in a test setup for OSPF routing, neither will upgrade.
hAP's need quite some free RAM, they download upgrade packages to RAM disk. I fear that devices with tiny 32MB RAMs are on their edge if you run OSPF ... as it needs some RAM to contain routing tables. Same problem with long dynamic address lists (e.g. for blacklisting certain clients) etc.

Often there are small changes/adjustments/refactoring in the code that does not (should not) change any functionality, but unfortunately some issues may be introduced in such way. We will resolve the RB4011 SFP+ interface issue in the next stable build. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Small changes/adjustments/refactoring should go in the beta release of the next version to be tested, while the early versions of the stable build are fixed to solve the issues not found in beta testing.
Once the stable build is again stable, you can backport some useful changes in the beta that have proven to work there, and that would be useful to have in the stable release.
Especially when you release a .2 to fix urgent problems in the .1 (and not even all of them), it is not a good idea to make "small changes" that are not relevant to that process.

I've got a hAP-lite and hAP-mini in a test setup for OSPF routing, neither will upgrade. I deleted all files in the "Files" menu entry and it still won't upgrade. I rebooted them, still won't upgrade. The error is "not enough space". Maybe this is the end of the line for lower end devices?
Running OSPF may be beyond what can be expected from them without encountering some issues...
I assume you already use separate packages so you can remove what you do not need.
My hAP-lite still updates but I have converted it to separate packages some time ago and removed things I do not need, and I try the upgrade just after boot.
When desperate, you can /export or even backup the config and re-install it using netinstall (take the opportunity to use separate instead of combined package) and reload the configuration.

Sysadmins that know Mikrotik well also know not to update anything for a few days after release or to do updates on non-critical test HW first.
It's always nice to see a new release, but then I always have to check the forum to see how broken it actually is... that's the reality.
But Mikrotik is also releasing SOHO targeted hardware and you have to think about people that update their routers using TikApp from their phones.
Stable new firmware version is available? Must be good to update... automatically clicks OK.... and if they have RB4011 and use SFP for WAN, all connectivity is lost.
Doing neinstall is then major hassle and this will be really negative experience for them...

I think main issue here is simply naming of the release channels:
"Testing"
"Stable"
"Long term"
It would be good to create "Stable candidate" channel that will have current "Stable" releases. After a few days, if there are no issues, same release would be pushed on "Stable" channel.
In most cases serious bugs are discovered in matter of days. Just slight delay is all that's needed. And if bug would be discovered in "Stable candidate" version, it would simply not be put to "Stable" channel at all, skipping it.
This would prevent most of the issues. And no, using "long term" channel is simply not a same solution. Longterm is to far behind, using it on for example wireless wire (and 60GHz in general) is just bad.

Sysadmins that know Mikrotik well don't post such articles not to discourage other people to upgrade and post their horror stories. It is, after all, very wise to learn from other people's mistakes but for that one has to let other to make mistkaes :wink:

Did you bother to scan through even this topic? It's been mentioned many times that hAP lite devices have low amount RAM and flash and sadly some steps have to be taken to get them to upgrade.

Dear Mikrotik,

When are you going to start testing your releases? I'm guessing never, since that would be a huge workflow change internally.
When I see this in the patch notes "*) ospf - fixed possible busy loop condition when accessing OSPF LSAs;" and my routers are experiencing that problem, I wonder how fixing unrelated issues to this causes this to break. So I update to 6.45.2 because the "STABLE 6.45.1" wasn't really stable after all, so is that a term Mikrotik just throws around to sound cool around the water cooler?
Now after I update to 6.45.2 stable, (ha ha the jokes on me!) I've had a kernel panic reboot one of my CCR-1072's. The watchdog did one, with no supout file and then a second one appears to be a kernel panic with no logs. At what point do I start to say to myself and peers; Mikrotik is screwed, they can't test their patches, stable releases are a lie, whats the product I should be looking at to replace this fiasco? I also will need to ask when are the Tilera units (CCR series) going to be extinct, since it seems all of this is most likely related to the 10 year old linux kernel that keeps trying to get patched.

I see that others are questioning this as well with the SPF problem and undoubtedly more issues.
Now if the scripted response is to send a suport.rif to the support email that's just a joke right? Since most everyone knows that it's just a black-hole that never sees any light.

I just need to feel comfortable then if I use a "stable" release that it's actually that, stable. So far this has been bullshit ever since 6.44! And it wouldn't be so bad if the patch notes weren't just a passing statement, like we all should have know that the bug was there and Mikrotik is just reiterating it. I realize that my opinion here will never amount to anything that looks like real change in the Mikrotik camp, it''s more for posterity and other users who may just want to know how the company they used to trust is operated now.
thank's god, i have not upgrade my 1072 yet.
i also having rebooted by watchdog on 1072 with 6.45.1, i have reported and no news after it.
now i am using 6.44.3 everything run fine and not having rebooted by watchdog yet


thx

I can not upgrade hAP lite - not enough space.
I got around it by manually updating only selected packages, rather than the whole package. Basically I downloaded the SMIPS Extra Packages ZIP file on my PC, extracted it and then only uploaded the packages I actually needed to the device, which were System, Security, DHCP and Wireless, nothing else.

hAP AC2 at AC 80MHZ XXXX stuck at detecting radar, 40 seems to work.
Issue not present on older 6.44.5 long term.
Issue from the previous stable build with high ping over 5g wifi is fixed.
Tell me if u need more info.
Can we just copy and paste whatever is in 6.44.5 for the wifi and dump it in 6.45.3?
