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.
How do I convert it to "separate packages"? I'm not finding that information. I'm trying to remove packages now but the error is "can not uninstall bundled package". I assume this is what you mean by separate packages?

none of my hap lite can upgrade. not enough space: 1x 6.43.16 , 1x 6.45.1
after upgrading my CRS326 there are only 2MB left. Mmmh now im stuck.

Does anybody know of a "/system reset-configuration" would clean up the space issue or do i need to go via netboot ?
Edit: Just saw posting #48. Will try it this way first.

I have the feeling that testing is no longer in the view of the release team.

Just wanted to confirm that posting #48 seems to work. At least one of the hAP lite . But it is more or less package by package.

i was only able to put 2 packages initially on the the device.
I started with system and routing.
But placing now the additional packages on the system didnt install them.
Even just placing one package didnt help.

mmmh.

Did you not read the error log which should have told you about the dependency of one of the other packages on the dhcp package?

Hi
the trick was to switch back afterwards to long-term. (6.44.5) which means winbox i only had system and routing installed.
add the packages i need (wireless, advanced, security, dhcp)
and then made an upgrade to stable.


This is a pain in the ...


Now im back with 7.9MiB free space.

Hi
yes after you write this i remember that DHCP and security are now dependant. So i might be that the way i described in the other post is not necessary. Let me try this with the second hap left on my to do list.

Hi
Ok this path works. Just have a look on the picture. Then doing a reboot brings your hAP lite on 6.45.2.
Benefit of this action is also that any later upgrade will not download and install packages I anyhow dont need or use.

Hope this helps other also.

Nevertheless the issue i have with the CRS 326 (only 2MB left from 16MB) is not solved with this workaround.

There's not enough information. I don't see where to download a zip file, only an npk file. I don't use Windows so I don't use winbox, which is how I assume you can upgrade individual packages? I don't see a way to do it on the command line.

At https://mikrotik.com/download, download "extra packages", which is the .zip with all, not just "extra", packages.
Then upload the individual .npk packages to the machine using scp (or ftp, or WebFig) and reboot.
Instead of writing novels, post /export hide-sensitive. Use find&replace in your favourite text editor to systematically replace all occurrences of each public IP address potentially identifying you by a distinctive pattern such as my.public.ip.1.

Hi
i just made a netboot install of my hEX. and now only 4.9 MiB are left .
Cant believe that this is really tested.

This means for all 16MB devices we have to netboot from now on .. Great.

Just upgraded mine RB4011iGS+ and guess what happened...

People do buy this hardware for its SFP+ port which most probably in most cases runs as a trunk. The most relevant and important part of this equipment is the SFP port. Once the issue manifested I tried all kinds of modules copper / fiber including MT S+RJ10, SolarFlare SFM10G-SR etc. Nothing works in this port after the upgrade.

I had never needed to browse any forum before upgrading to a "stable" firmware and the only reason for rush this time was reported security flaw. Interesting what downgrade button does (nothing) but I ended up with a mobile hot spot to download older firmware and re-flash to get things working again.

You security lock your device for access so recovery options may vary (like full reset). Thank God this is home use only, lovely Sunday, still nothing about the issue in change log and update not put on hold. Let's pray for the ones with automatic updates.

Thanks MT!

hEX PoE + wAP ac (CAPsMAN): upgrade to 6.45.2 (also 6.46beta9) from 6.43.x resulted in issues - Chromecast couldn't connect to WiFi with "4-way handshake timeout" in logs.
Roll-back to 6.43.16 fixed the issue.

hEX PoE (VPN, IPsec with IKE2 RSA signature): upgrade to 6.45.2 from 6.43.x resulted in issue - somehow IPsec config was changed in a way that affected peers configuration. Clients couldn't connect due to "identity not found for peer: DER DN".
Attempts to fix it in peers config didn't help, though maybe I've missed some basic thing due to limited timeframe I had to roll back to 6.43.

However, roll-back to 6.43.16 and update of peer config with proper values fixed the issue.

Next time you may want to upgrade along each version (no skip 6.44 like you did) when you have complicated configuration in an area where big changes were made.
This time this is true for IPsec, in previous cases it was true for ethernet master-port migration to bridge with hw-accel.

OpenVPN is not working anymore for us after upgrading to 6.45.1 and 6.45.2. OpenVPN clients are unable to get traffic from the OpenVPN-Net (10.10.10.x/24) to the Management Network (10.80.80.x/24). The IP Firewall in Winbox shows the following message on the rules which include the ovpn-instance:

in/out-interface matcher not possible when interface (ovpn-instance) is slave - use master instead (bridge-mgmt)

Our OpenVPN setup worked perfectly fine BEFORE upgrading to 6.45.1/6.45.2. Any ideas?

Ok, so it looks like upgrade from 6.43 to 6.44 migrated my IPsec configuration in a way that made it non-working.
I've managed to fix it in Identify by changing "My id type" from address to auto. Also, I think, in the same Identity section, wrong mode config was selected.

I've upgraded again, but this time through interim long-term 6.44 and after that to 6.45. So far Chromecast works fine.

Hi,

I got problems with login.
I updated RB OmniTIK U-5HnD to 6.45.1, after I try to backup config but got message "Cant export all config... " something like that message and notice some of my users cant connect to.
I export all to .rsc file, hit reset config - keep users - no default config - after that reouter reboted but im unable to login - password incorrect.

Is there any chance to login with MAC Telnet ?

Thank you Sindy. Between this and post #48 I was able to get a working system. The key to my understanding was I didn't know that simply uploading a package to normal storage and rebooting would install that package.

I can't help but think this is the end of the line for 16 meg devices. I'm not sure average users are going to want to go through this, to the extent that there is an average Mikrotik user I guess. They had to know this was going to happen eventually. I see a boatload of 16 meg devices still being sold as new that won't be able to be "auto upgraded" to the latest version... And I have a bunch of them. Wow.

Hi!!
Like in last version 6.45.1, the api login doesn't work
When I try to login through API, I receive the same error." Login failure for ApiUsername via api".
Any comment about this issue?

I attach my c# code.
public MK(string ip)
        {
            try
            {
                con = new TcpClient();
                con.Connect(ip, 8728);
                connection = (Stream)con.GetStream();
            }
            catch (Exception error)
            { MessageBox.Show("Error al conectar con Base.. Verifique su conexión" + Environment.NewLine + error.Message); }
        }
        public void Close()
        {
            connection.Close();
            con.Close();
        }
        public bool Login(string username, string password)
        {
            Send("/login",false);
            Send("=name=" + username,false);            
            Send("=password=" + password, true);
            if (Read()[0] == "!done")
            {
                return true;
            }
            else
            {
                return false;
            }
        }
This code, with 6.44.3 version works fine.

Is it ok to have 7,4 MB available out of 16 total ?

On 16M flash devices upgrade happens in RAM, so that should be fine. But you may occasionally need to reboot your device right before the upgrade to free some RAM. Also switching from bundle to individual packages should not be required, unless you want to add something that's not part of the bundle.

I don't think there is a problem for 16M flash devices right now.
There is a problem for devices with only 32M RAM (and 16M flash), yes.
Many recent devices have 256M RAM and when they have 16M flash it can still be auto-updated.

hAP lite has 32MB ram 16MB flash
No way to update after deleting all files and rebooted more than once (had to try netinstall yet).
The winbox method system->packages>CheckForUpdates, finds new version but "download and install button" refuses to appear (likely because of space issue).

Welcome in the club.
BTW. Just uploading system,routing to the device and rebooting will get on 6.45.2 and then dhcp, security, wireless will give you what you need.

When you do not know what the "routing" package does you probably don't need it!
(it is not for static routing)

When you want the "security" package you also need to install "dhcp".

The winbox method system->packages>CheckForUpdates, finds new version but "download and install button" refuses to appear (likely because of space issue).

Same for me with a hAP lite. I also reverted to longterm, but like you, although 6.45.2 was 100% downloaded, on reboot, it throws a system error "not enough space for upgrade".

This was using Winbox 3.19. I say that, because in the past, Webfig update has worked when Winbox error-ed.

I am glad to report that due to the "real beta testers" (the unsuspecting public) having noted the issues has allowed me to avoid the latest "stable" version, - not coming near 6.45.2 with a 10 foot pole (okay 6 inches ;-) )

Now would the so called beta testers (the folks that frequent this forum: viewforum.php?f=1 )
Please stand up..... your all fired!! ;-P

Maybe this:
Old API authentication method will also no longer work, see documentation for new login procedure:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:API#Initial_login
I'm usign the new login procedure.
you can check that on my quote code below.
C#
public bool Login(string username, string password)
        {
            Send("/login",false);
            Send("=name=" + username,false);            
            Send("=password=" + password, true);
            if (Read()[0] == "!done")
            {
                return true;
            }
            else
            {
                return false;
            }

Hi
I upgraded to 6.45.2 and more could not use the 5GHz network. I went back to the 6.45 and I come back to the 5GHz network
If it's some sort of finger, I'm waiting for an answer and a correction. At least my opinion.


Thanks
don't forget to give me karma if got help

[
Changes in this release:

*) bonding - fixed bonding running status after reboot when using other bonds as slave interfaces (introduced in v6.45);
*) interface - fixed missing PWR-LINE section on PL7411-2nD and PL6411-2nD (introduced v6.44);
*) 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);
*) 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);

6.45.2 in my case appears to Cause in WAP AC ( RBwAPG-5ACT2HnD Models) some issues with older HP Laptops ( N max speed Intel Centrino Wireless Cards Circa 2015 Drivers ) (not AC)

The PC cannot see the Access Points for 2.4 and 5 GHz appear not Visible at all ( Either using the Built in Wifi Search or Acrylic Wifi ) .

Rolling the WAPS back to 6.44.5 have resolved the connectivity issue.

Samsung AC Phones etc ( S7 ) were still able to connect when the WAPS were at 6.45.2

it might have been a channel issue, perhaps you have set auto channel EU, while the wifi client card is US, if router sets channel 12 for example you won't see it with that wifi client

"improved 802.11ac stability for all ARM devices with wireless"
I have cAP ac. New version improves upload on my Huawei Mate 20 Lite (from ~150 Mbit/s to ~190 Mbit/s), but download speed is lower. On 6.45.2 download is 50 Mbit/s average, on 6.44.5 it is higher than 100 Mbit/s. cAP is at the ceiling directly 3-4 m above the phone. At the beginning of the speedtest speed is ok (above 100 Mbit), but then speed drops. In registration table Tx Rate drops to 54 Mbit. When transfer stops Tx Rate goes back to 390-80Mhz/1S or 433-80Mhz/1S. There are no other radio networks in 5 GHz spectrum.
On my laptop nothing has changed (~300 Mbit/s in both directions).

I am so happy i did not upgrade my 4011.
6.45.1 had some changes related to SFP+ so i upgraded. i was luck as previous problems disappeared, so there was an accidental fix included. (my exact problem was not in the change log)
As i was afraid this accidental fix disappears i did not upgrade to 6.45.2. i guess i was lucky.

I bought this 4011 to replace a Netgear D7800 due to stability issues. I am not sure i made the right choice.

IP Sec Routing Issue

Since upgrading from 6.44.12 to 6.45.2 I have strange routing issue.

I have a site-to-site IPSEC-L2TP tunnel between 2 sites. A master and a slave.
The Master has dnsnat and exposes a number of services on different IP addresses.
The moment the IPSEC tunnel gets established the client at the other side of the tunnel can't access those public ip addresses anymore, and ip times out and traceroute is looping.
Only changing the client ip or rebooting is fixing the issue.
I don't see anything in the routing table that might justitify that.
External devices can still access those public ip addresses...

Just heads up.

IP Sec Scripting update

For those using scripting rules on IPSEC-L2TP the ip ipsec remote-peers has changed in ip ipsec active-peers

Any scripts using L2PT security on that might need to be updated.

On 16M flash devices upgrade happens in RAM, so that should be fine.
Should be, but it isn't.
But you may occasionally need to reboot your device right before the upgrade to free some RAM.
Occasionally? It's every time and even then it doesn't work.
Also switching from bundle to individual packages should not be required
But it is. That's the only way to upgrade things.

Why do you not just unbundle all those packages on these basic spec. devices? It's the only way they are going to work for the vast majority.
Sticking your collective heads in the sand isn't going to help. People repeatedly tell you on here that it's broken, but you don't seem to be listening.

Indeed! I think that whole combined package thing should be dropped, and at some time all installations are converted to separate packages during the upgrade to a new version.
And then the package manager should be extended with an option that allows installation of a package (from the upgrade server) with a simple mouseclick.
Some menu that shows you all the existing packages on the upgrade server, you can tick some of them, and then download them and reboot.
Just like it already happens during a regular upgrade once you have converted your device to separate packages. The mechanism is already in place, just make it accessible in the UI.

Youre lucky. I have CCR-1072, it not rebooting, just freezes and looking dead every 1-3 nights after upgrade to 6.45.x. Only hard reboot fix it. So, i wake up from bed and going to office to reboot. Every night.
Just downgrade to 6.44 (Long term) fix this problem to me.

Hi all!

Another 4011 with an useless SFP+ port here! :shock:

I've installed the LTS firmware and it everything has returned to normal. The point is that I haven't been able to restore the factory firmware (6.43) doing a factory reset (pressing button before turning on the power). It always started with that buggy 6.45.2 firmware until I force it to install the npk (downgrade).

The point is that I haven't been able to restore the factory firmware (6.43) doing a factory reset (pressing button before turning on the power).

Routerboards don't have dual firmware installed [*]. Factory reset only returns configuration to factory default [**], not the software version. Information about factory default ROS version is there only to prevent administrator from installing ROS version older than that (and possibly doesn't have support for all hardware).

[*] it is possible to have two (or more) ROS versions installed in unit has flash storage with size of 64MB or more. In this case, one can partition flash to two halves and run different version of ROS in both partitions. If ROS crashes or fails to boot from one partition, it'll automatically try to boot from the other partition. If ROS is running normally, one can manually select partition for next boot.

[**] factory default configuration is not the configuration which was set up when unit was manufactured, but rather default configuration of ROS being installed. Default configuration can change slightly from time to time (and new defaults get added for new features). The most notable example of changing default setup is default list of firewall rules, they slowly evolve with time.

I wrote 19 Jul: 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


Nobody from Mikrotik hear it. Probably a big problem to add one line to the changelog :( :(

We have about 400-500 Hap Lite routers automatically updating with the latest release version, most of them are having the same issue - not enough storage to update. The big problem is the device saves a chunk of the update file in the file list, meaning it wont automatically update due to a shortage in storage when Mikrotik does push an update to fix this.

I can only think about going one by one and deleting the file and updating the 'long term' package.


Edit: When it attempts to update again it clears the file from the file list.

Same problem here, there are already several crashes with routers only with OSPF, others with OSPF + BGP and all with 6.45.1. I have to force a restart to recover, it is accessible only by mac-telnet. OSPF and BGP are lost.

The failure they report is:
01:46:02 script, error script error: action timed out - try again, if error continues contact MikroTik support and send a supout file (13)

There is no script implemented on the router ...

What is happening?

hap lite, update with netinstall and backup config. because no free space with default packages(
Best solution so far for hAP lite: download and extract all_packages-smips-6.45.2.zip, upload only those packages that are enabled in your router, reboot -> router is upgraded and disabled packages are gone in one simple step.

I run DHCP BGP Firewall NAT VLANs SFP+ L2TP (server and clients) UPnP SNMP Scripts Schedulers in most of them and so far not a single issue. Maybe the problem is service specific? Have you tried enabling logging to an external server to catch those logs before rebooting?

not enough storage to update.
You should hold off and wait for 6.46.
MT is aware of the problem and seems to work on solution for the small space devices.
From 6.46Beta16
*) smips - reduced RouterOS main package size (disabled LTE modem, dot1x and SwOS support);
Does it mean that my LTE modem will stop working when 6.46 is released and installed on my hAP lite? /edit: sorry, not lite but just hAP, my mistake/

Since installing 6.45.1 I've been experiencing occasional disconnections from my wi-fi network when I'm using remote desktop connection, and so I tried to update. That failed, initially because of 'free space' issue, then I switched to 'longterm' 6.44.5, after that 6.45.2 gets downloaded but after reboot I still have 6.44.5.

Disappointing, I thought Mikrotik were the most stable, bought 3 of these one by one for various locations, but it seems that I need to consider previous options again.

[*] it is possible to have two (or more) ROS versions installed in unit has flash storage with size of 64MB or more. In this case, one can partition flash to two halves and run different version of ROS in both partitions. If ROS crashes or fails to boot from one partition, it'll automatically try to boot from the other partition. If ROS is running normally, one can manually select partition for next boot.
Is this supported on all devices with enough flash?

https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Partitions says only MIPS, TILE and PowerPC, but my ARM-based RB1100AHx4s do have the /partition menu.

I haven't tried it myself (the only ARM device I have has only 16MB flash), but some forum users reported that partitioning on RB4011 (IIRC) went fine.

That is the disadvantage of putting things like that in a manual page that isn't automatically maintained. That page was likely made when those were the only
available platforms for their own equipment. Things like X86 and CHR are not in the list and intentionally so, but ARM just was never added.

On hAP ac2 (and other devices witch tiny flash disks), root of what you see in /files print is in RAM disk and gets wiped after every restart. The non-volatile file storage is under /flash ...

Perhaps packages like mpls, ipv6 and hostspot should be dropped from the base RoS distribution. Would be even better if from the main RoS distribution individual packages could be uninstallable instead of just disabled.

Indeed! I think that whole combined package thing should be dropped, and at some time all installations are converted to separate packages during the upgrade to a new version.
What happens when some of downloaded packages are broken during download? If you have bundle package - then you have error on bundle installation, and everything is rolled back. AFAIR, when system is already installed and some additional package is broken, it simply does not get installed, so... can't you bring your RouterOS into some "clipped" state without necessary functionality when installing separate packages?

When you click on "download&install" and it cannot finsh the download, it does not reboot so it does not get installed.
On newer devices that is the final state becuase a powercycle deletes those downloaded packages.
On older devices with 64M or more flash, the older packages will remain but a powercycle still does not install them, only a requested reboot does.
Re-doing the download&install will probably fix it.
Furthermore, this situation already was present when you installed extra packages beyond the combined package.

hAP lite has 32MB ram 16MB flash
No way to update after deleting all files and rebooted more than once (had to try netinstall yet).
The winbox method system->packages>CheckForUpdates, finds new version but "download and install button" refuses to appear (likely because of space issue).

Somewhere around ROS 6.41 the upgrade process could sometimes break and leave some files un-acounted for. Those could be removed only by net-installing the device. This npk tries to find such orphaned files and removes them. Newer versions are supposedly not breaking the same way and this npk won't fix anything.

Hello, I got a small 16gb flash drive for this. Format it as ext3 amd mount it. I keep packages, logs and backups on it. Be sure to copy them over to your PC from time to time as flash drives dont last very long.

On another note, can you check if your 5GHz AC wifi gets stuck at detecting radar if its set to 80MHz channel?

No, it is made by reboot. The files directory on a device with 16M flash is a RAMDISK.
It will vanish whenever you powercycle or reboot the device. This is not the place to keep exports and backups, only to generate them. After that you have to download them to your PC to save them.

Is it that hard to just add a warning to a changelog about not working SFP on 4011? If you don't want to pull the release, at least do the absolute minimum?
It will be week old soon and people are still installing it on their devices, breaking the functionality.
These are your customers, that bought your 200e product and you are doing everything for them to hate you and never buy another.
(and let's not even talk about the SNAFU with 5GHz wifi that still doesn't work properly year after a product launch)
Doing the absolute minimum (adding a warning to release notes) can't take more than 5 minutes... yet you just don't care.

just use long term, eks dee. But seriously, use long term. Imo stable just means it boots most of the time.
Stable builds are not to be deployed to customers and offsite. If you do that then u just asking for trouble.

I’m one of those couple of 200e+ customers... just pull the damn release as you’re probably doing a lot more harm for mikrotik’s name letting it as is. I crashed two rb4011 and it’s a good thing I had a backup ethernet link to that couple of switches... or it would cost me time and money to physically get to both sites in couple of hours.

@normis and @mikrotik It is too hard answer this question? You rather let the user install a "defective" RouterOS for rb4011?

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?
Similar issue here. Was able to solve it by switching from "Frequency: Auto" to "Frequency: 5180"

abysmal wlan download with this f/w. went from 54/16 to 1.3/16 Mbps (have 150/15 from my isp)

i have 750gr3 an 2 wapac capsman configured

worked great until i tried 6.45.2 bad enough that i downgraded to 6.44.5 long term and its fine, back to where it was
ie. maxed out my wlan on that device

first time this has happened to me with upgrading mikrotik I've had them a couple of years now, I may lean towards long term from now on

OpenVPN is not working anymore for us after upgrading to 6.45.1 and 6.45.2. OpenVPN clients are unable to get traffic from the OpenVPN-Net (10.10.10.x/24) to the Management Network (10.80.80.x/24). The IP Firewall in Winbox shows the following message on the rules which include the ovpn-instance:

in/out-interface matcher not possible when interface (ovpn-instance) is slave - use master instead (bridge-mgmt)

Our OpenVPN setup worked perfectly fine BEFORE upgrading to 6.45.1/6.45.2. Any ideas?
Mine also stop working after Upgrade and CPU usage was high about (25-30%). But restoring old backup(configs) fix the problem.

I have upgraded hAP lite RB941 and hotspot doesn't work correctly. No internet connections is shown when you select the wireless. With 6.44.3 is working but with 6.45.1 and 6.45.2 and 6.46beta give this issue.
It works only if you go to 192.168.88.1

No problem instead with RB951ui-2hnd

Any one else discovered this issue?

And new features too!! The horror.
The "bug" that is being quoted in red all the time (although it is not clear why people include it with their own unrelated bug) probably is not a bug at all anyway, just an existing incorrect configuration that now is detected and indicated, and previously it just did not work.

I run many services on this router, such as OSPF, OpenVPN and etc.
Downgraded to 6.44.5 yesterday, the uptime is 10h until now without any issues.
I run DHCP BGP Firewall NAT VLANs SFP+ L2TP (server and clients) UPnP SNMP Scripts Schedulers in most of them and so far not a single issue. Maybe the problem is service specific? Have you tried enabling logging to an external server to catch those logs before rebooting?
Not yet, I don't have externel log server for now.
I have three CCR -1009, only this one has crash issue.
But the most service running on this router: OPENVPN, OSPF, IPSEC, EOIP, DHCP, NAT, L2TP, UPNP, SFP, FIREWALL, DNS

I made mistake - I did not read "v6.45.2 [stable] is released!" topic before upgrading my hEX

I successfully upgraded ROS of remote hEX from 6.45.1 to 6.45.2
After rebooting I tried to upgrade FIRMWARE from 6.45.1 to 6.45.2.
The red line in the bottom of firmware upgrade window was as usually: "successful upgrade, please reboot"
But now I can't connect to hEX after reboot.
Winbox after trying to connect within ~20 seconds reports:
"ERROR: could not connect to..."
This is remote location without any personnel. So I should go there to see what happened.

Another my RB2011 successfully upgraded its ROS to 6.45.2 but there was strange thing when I rebooted it after
FIRMWARE upgrade:
Winbox lost connection as expected, but RB2011 did not reboot. I looked at device, it kept on working and nothing happened.
In a few minutes I connected via Winbox again, reboot router and this time process finished good, firmware is 6.45.2

It's seems like with every new Mikrotik upgrade, the process is getting closer to Discovery Channels' "I Shouldn't Be Alive" series.
Only lucky ones will be able to upgrade.

P.S. Another my Mikrotik device - hEX POE is the lucky one. It was successfully upgraded from 6.44.3 to 6.45.2 (both ROS and FIRMWARE)

Warning for all RB4011 users do not install FW6.45.2 if you are using the SFP+ port, Installing the firmware makes the SFP+ adapter not seeing by the routerOS and no traffic throu SFP, downgrade to FW6.45.1 makes it work again.

I have no problem with FW6.45.2 on CHR and CCR1036

Did you do the "Wireless Reset" as mentioned in previous version (6.45.1) change log?

This has nothing to do with the MAC duplication fixed in 6.45.1 - the SFP is broken in 6.45.2 and they acknowledged that in some of the previous posts.

When I upgraded an LtAP mini (luckily a test machine) to 6.45.1, I lost the LTE interface! When I upgraded to 6.45.2, the LTE interface is back again.
There is nothing in the release/change notes. Anybody else experiencing the same issue?

Not really.

Step1: Download ALL necessary packages. Use RAM if needed.
Step2: Verify ALL downloaded packages.
Step3: If everything is ok, install packages.

Done. This is how Linux Distros work: they download updates, verify integrity and then install.

Exactly the same here !

Upgraded from 6.42.7 to 6.45.2 on a CCR1036 and all the GRE tunnels stopped working.

Ok I know that the Mikrotik guys can't test everything ...but GRE ? seriously ?? c'mon guys....FIX IT !!!

Ok I know that the Mikrotik guys can't test everything ...but GRE ? seriously ?? c'mon guys....FIX IT !!!
Did you check your firewalls allow inbound GRE? If you check the notes there was a fix for a bug that allowed it when it shouldn't've been allowed.

...and while fixing that one, another one has been introduced which incorrectly labels the initial packet of a GRE connection with connection-state=invalid so you need to workaround this in your firewall if you drop "invalid" packets before all selective accept rules. This has also been discussed earlier in this topic.

Hi

Thanks guys
Yeah...the problem was that i have in the FW a drop invalid input and a drop invalid output rule in place, so after disabling those two rules it started working again.

Upgraded a cAP AC to 6.45.2
Reset Configuration Like I normally do... but this site was not a CAP install.
/system reset-configuration

UNIT CAME UP AS A ROUTER.

wAP AC has always done this. This was the first time I have seen a cAP AC do this.

Had to have tech on site connect to the local SSID to get around the firewall and configure it.

From release notes 6.45.1:
*) ipsec - renamed "remote-peers" to "active-peers";
Can someone change remote-peers to active-peers in script listed on this wiki page: Securing L2TP Server for IPSec

PS: It would be great if in future such changes would apply to user scripts automatically. It is not very obvious why after upgrade to new version VPN stopped working...

After upgrading to 6.45.2 the pptp connection to the core router with 6.44.1 is not possible, It stops at link established. Downgroade to 6.44.5 and it works again.

Not really.

Step1: Download ALL necessary packages. Use RAM if needed.
Step2: Verify ALL downloaded packages.
Step3: If everything is ok, install packages.

Done. This is how Linux Distros work: they download updates, verify integrity and then install.
Okay, let's then imagine "out of disk space" issue in the middle of installation of Nth package. Linux distros can work with "different" versions of packages, RouterOS can't.

This should only happen when something is corrupted. Normally, Linux distributions know beforehand how much extra diskspace is required when installing or updating a package.
So RouterOS can calculate if the new install will theoretically fit, and not start the upgrade when it does not fit.

When can we expect a fix for the botched 6.45.2 update ? ... Thank god for partitions!


P.S. - Please renamed update to "v6.45.2 [stable if you dont use sfp]"

Hello to everyone
I have a problem with this version of RouterOS
I download manually package (routeros-mmips-6.45.2) from the web site and put it to my RB750Gr3 with 6.41.5 version. After reboot it must be upgraded. But after that he did not start correctly, i can not seen him in winbox or in another way (for exaple to connect him to another router and i can not find him in "neighbors").
I repeat installation on another Mikrotik RB750Gr3 with 6.41.5 version - and i again have the same proplem. Now i have 2 dead routers.
Why i have this problem? Can you help me? What i can do with it and why this problem begin?

"Theoretically" is not always what will happen IRL. Like, gitlab-ce does PostgreSQL backup on package upgrade. Are you sure it calculates backup size before doing it? Are you sure it's even possible?

I want to inform that we should also downgrade CCR1072.
With 6.45.1 we have an unexpected restart every day. :(

Simply lower CCR to 6.44.5 and no more bad reboots. :D

I don't think there is such an issue with RouterOS updates. Maybe there is some need of temporary space (e.g. to generate a new config from the old one) but MikroTik engineers should be well aware of it.
When I tried to update devices with limited space I have seen "not enough space" errors several times and never has it corrupted the device.
(other than already existing corruption like a couple of versions ago when the old version of a big file was not deleted and took like 12MB of diskspace)

Funny enough this upgrade caused a loop for me, until i also upgraded the firmware, now resolved.

Also as mentioned HAp lite is on the ragged edge of space, i had a backup on it and it could not upgrade until removed.

I have upgraded hAP lite RB941 and hotspot doesn't work correctly. No internet connections is shown when you select the wireless. With 6.44.3 is working but with 6.45.1 and 6.45.2 and 6.46beta give this issue.
It works only if you go to 192.168.88.1

No problem instead with RB951ui-2hnd

Any one else discovered this issue?

Download to RAM. Do the job from there, and keep a flash copy of the disk on it, or on a external storage (SD card, USB disk, pendrive...). If you run into problems, just do an automatic rollback.

In the older and the more powerful routers you can partition the flash, and keep the previous version.
Unfortunately that is no longer possible with many recent models because they have only 16M flash (earlier 128M flash was usual).

IP Sec Scripting update

For those using scripting rules on IPSEC-L2TP the ip ipsec remote-peers has changed in ip ipsec active-peers

Any scripts using L2PT security on that might need to be updated.
Indeed. Mikrotik you need to update this:

6.45.2 on my cAP AC is total crap. I'm loosing MGMT access few minutes after power cycling the unit. I did downgrade to 6.44.5 but it was still working as badly as before - I had to downgrade the firmware too to finally have a stable device.

Hi everybody!

Today I had an issue after updating the RouterOS on my 2 Mikrotik routers from ver.6.45.1 to ver.6.45.2. My RB4011 lost it's ability to obtain the ip-address from ISP via DHCP. I do strongly advise you not to update to RoterOS version 6.45.2 as it's stable but faulty. For details: SL4529@GMAIL.COM.

We are reaching the point where 6.45.2 should be considered "unfit for purpose". Even the vulnerabilities it mitigates seem "less worse" than the problems it caused.

Waiting 6.45.3 (6.46?).

What's new in 6.45.3 (2019-Jul-29 12:11):

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

*) certificate - renew certificates via SCEP when 3/4 of lifetime reached;
*) crs317 - fixed multicast packet receiving (introduced in v6.45);
*) hotspot - fixed default profile values not being used (introduced in v6.45);
*) rb4011 - fixed SFP+ interface linking (introduced in v6.45.2);
*) smips - reduced RouterOS main package size (disabled LTE modem, dot1x and SwOS support);
*) supout - fixed SIM slot printing (introduced in v6.45);
*) wireless - improved U-APSD (WMM Power Save) support for 802.11e;

I recently purchased 4 LtAP mini's I have upgraded each one to 6.45.2 ( original factory type was 6.42.1 )

The LTE connection is VERY unreliable.

I am using Vodacom sim both contract and Pay as you go.

I had to remove both sims pin as the software can't handle it.

It has internet for a few minutes then just stops. although it states registered and up. you can’t ping 8.8.8.8.

You have to restart the router. plus it sometimes connects and sometimes not. then you restart then it works.

I have tried setting it to LTE only.

I have tried putting roaming on and off.

still stops working.

These units soul goal is to have something in the field connected to the internet. but it is not working.

One guy mentioned the LTE interface disappearing. try rebooting the unit 4 times. then it comes back.

Also after upgrading you have to reset the whole unit just to get stuff to work again.

I have tried it in different locations. 2 different units and with external and internal antennas.

@CrimzinZA As noted above, make sure the firmware matches (in Winbox, System > Routerboard > Upgrade, then reboot the box). If that doesn't help, you might want to try downgrading to the "long term" release...under System > Packages, you can select the older package. Don't know if it will help, but something to try.

I made sure it was done. routerboard and firmware is the same.

If I downgrade what would be the safest reliable version?

When I upgraded an LtAP mini (luckily a test machine) to 6.45.1, I lost the LTE interface! When I upgraded to 6.45.2, the LTE interface is back again.
There is nothing in the release/change notes. Anybody else experiencing the same issue?
I had this randomly happen. After restarting a few times it sees it again. one issue is that I can see the LTE and the traffic but the unit itself cant connect to the internet although it states its registered and connected. When connected and there is internet it only last for a short while. ( from a few minutes to a day )

This will work if you have the main package installed but if you have packages (like devices with limited flash space for example) then this is a big problem and you have to get the full package and then extract and install the packages. This is OK and not such a big issue if you have one or maybe a few mikrotik devices to manage but it is a big problem if you mange a lot of them and each one may be different than the other in architecture as well as packages installed, so please Mikrotik, can you fix this problem?

I agree it is bad, but on the other hand what is so complicated about adding protocol=!gre to the action=drop connection-state=invalid rule?
