v6.45.6 [stable] is released!

Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:27 pm

RouterOS version 6.45.6 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 6.45.6 (2019-Sep-10 09:06):

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:

*) capsman - fixed regulatory domain information checking when doing background scan;
*) conntrack - improved system stability when using h323 helper (introduced in v6.45);
*) crs3xx - fixed "egress-rate" property on CRS309-1G-8S+, CRS312-4C+8XG, CRS326-24S+2Q+ devices;
*) qsfp - clear SFP monitoring data on port enable;
*) qsfp - correctly display SFP monitoring data;
*) qsfp - fixed EEPROM checksum validation;
*) qsfp - show more QSFP module diagnostics;
*) wireless - include last frequency when manually setting frequency step in "scan-list";

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.

Upgraded hAP ac2, no issues as yet. (although config is very simple, pppoe client and pptp vpn).

I also want to test l2tp/ipsec but had issues in previous build(s) but seemed to be more ISP related than mikrotik (yes Im aware of the gre traffic acceptance needs).

I will also try see if the "very first GRE packet of a new tunnel is improperly labelled with connection-state=invalid". I know there was much about this in a previous topic and I did read it all ~ this comes as a side effect of the initial gre fix, and that enabling the PPTP helper may play a part in the state.

Upgraded 3xHAP AC from 6.45.5 => 6.45.6
I had a small issue with IP firewall rules that stopped working due to bridge configuration changes but it was a minor issue that was easy to resolve

Upgraded 3xHAP AClite from 6.45.5 => 6.45.6
No issues although only one of the upgrade was done manually the two other were upgraded by CAPS, anyone know to also upgrade the firmware with CAPS?

Thanks!

It was a masquerade rule that was configured to allow access to the next router, the rule was disabled and showed an error I modified the output device from a specific ether within the bridge to the parent bridge itself.

Since the release of 6.45.1, neighbor discovery on our networks doesn't show IP addresses; only MAC addresses and other information.

I suspect it's because we carry our admin traffic on a VLAN, and the default VLAN is unused. My suspicion is, thanks to:
*) discovery - correctly create neighbors from VLAN tagged discovery messages;
introduced in 6.45.1, we are "correctly" seeing the neighbor information for the default VLAN (with no IP addresses), instead of the IP information from our management VLAN.

I discovered this (pun intended) while downgrading to 6.44.5 for suspected OSPF issues. Very inconvenient when I don't have all of our IP addresses committed to memory...

I think previously if you used a scan list like: 2412-2472:20 it would never select the 2472 frequency.

Dear MikroTik team,
Please try to make 6.45.x bundles smaller for smips devices (hAP lite, hAP mini) without sacrificing the functionality. Upgrade from 6.45.5 to 6.45.6 failed on one of my hAP lite due to insufficient free space (20 KiB free out of 16 MiB). And yes, I had no other files, just the .npk, and rebooted the router before the upgrade.

I could not switch to long-term channel 6.44.5 - the same space problem (48 KiB free out of 16 MiB).

Downgrade to 6.43.7 went fine.

Here is the list of npk for mentioned versions with their file size:
routeros-smips-6.43.7.npk    7434 KB
routeros-smips-6.44.5.npk    7522 KB
routeros-smips-6.45.5.npk    7510 KB
routeros-smips-6.45.6.npk    7550 KB

Downgrade to 6.43.7 went fine.
Now you can try to upgrade to 6.45.6. Since 6.43.7 takes less space compare to your previous version was larger, 6.45.6 may now fit.

Same problem. I have a nAP ac. I can’t even update using the netinstall utility from 6.45.5 to 6.45.6.

Did you try as I write above? Downgrade to a smaller version before upgrade? example 6.43.7

That worked well, thanks. So the upgrade path for this hAP lite was:
6.43.7 -> 6.45.5 - OK
6.45.5 -> 6.45.6 - Failed
6.45.5 -> 6.43.7 - OK (downgrade)
6.43.7 -> 6.45.6 - OK
Doing the upgrade to the subsequent version via the downgrade first does not look like a straightforward way. And that seems to be the only way for this device, unless npk becomes smaller in size.

It will become better since 6.46 is smaller than 6.45. It was just some version of 6.45 that was on the limit of what was possible to add and to do upgrade from.

You can route the vlan to a bridge and set neighbor discovery onto that bridge that way you'll still have neighbor discovery enabled.

951Ui-2nD user here.
Installed it over 6.45.5, , which looked better stability wise, on the pppoe wan side.Installation itself went ok.
I have reverted to 6.44.5 due to a strange logged issue, though.
In my firewall the Output Chain ends with a drop and Log rule.
After restarting the router today i have had a strange ICMP Type 3 Code 4 drop logged between 192.168.88.1->192.168.88.1.
Why did it pinged itself ?
I have not observed this with older builds...
Is it normal ?
Over & Out !

Nop BGP hung up continues, with longer working time, but happens. And caps acts strange, cannot find manager, and comes back only after restart. Best stable at this moment 6.45.3. Of course little bit annoying all the time reverting :D

Hi,

Will rise again this case... which stopped working after 6.44.3 version. And your software upgrade to 6.45.2 didn't fix this... Maybe someone knows how to fix this or avoid it?


6.45.1
*) ospf - added support for link scope opaque LSAs (Type 9) for OSPFv2;
*) ospf - fixed opaque LSA type checking in OSPFv2;
*) ospf - improved "unknown" LSA handling in

6.45.2
*) ospf - fixed possible busy loop condition when accessing OSPF LSAs;OSPFv3;

downgrade 6.44, ospf works :[

about 20 routers, half was updated, all updated did this. downgrade fixes ;[

ospf with backbone and 23 nssa areas.
two links from bbone to nssa. 🤷‍♂️

edit.
added a nokia to the mix:

"LCL_RTR_ID 10.9.0.1: Neighbor 0.0.0.6 on TEST-NBR router state changed to exchangeStart (event SEQ_MISM)" :D

At least for me no NAT rules would mean the update did not go well.

Has anyone seen any issues with their Queue Trees?

I have a 1072 that I do both Packet Prioritization via Prerouting Mangle and Rate Limits via Forward Mangle.

If I enable one of the Global Queues in the Queue Tree that I use for Prioritization that exceeds an Avg Rate of 1.2 gbps all the CPU’s spike to 100%, the Queue starts dropping packets, and all the normal bad things happen when you run at 100%. Once I disable the Packet Marking for that particular traffic, the CPU’s drop back to normal and run at their normal average. The rules and queue setup that I’m using is a couple years old and the traffic patterns have been similar for 6+ months. This seems to be an issue introduced in 6.45.6.
