Skins in web-interface stopped working after upgrading to 6.45.9. Checked on 2 different architecture routers.
If the skin is assigned to a specific group (read only for example), a user of this group after login to web interface will see all elements, even the ones that were deselected in skin. If the skin is selected manually in Design Skin menu, everything looks ok for this user.

Is it just for us or not?

*) chr - fixed graceful shutdown execution on Hyper-V (introduced in v6.46);
How comes 6.45.9 contains a fix for something introduced in 6.46? In case the bug was "backported" from 6.46 it would be good to know what 6.45.x versions are affected.

There's obvious probability of it being present at least in 6.45.8 as it was released after 6.46. Then again as 6.44.6 was released before 6.46, so it is quite probable, that 6.45.8 is the only one affected in long-term tree - presuming "introduced" is pointing to right version...

Sorry for the confusion. The fix was backported to 6.45.9 by mistake, but the fix does not cause any harm. There is no issue with shutdown execution on Hyper-V before 6.46. I will remove the entry from changelog.

Sorry, but are where any news about OSPF stability in this release?
Especially with OSPF MD5 auth...

Updated one of my hap ac² which is used as a switch and AP. No issues so far, I'm getting ~300 Mbps TCP download speed on a 5GHz 2x2 device while it used to be in the 200-250 Mbps range before (6.45.8 long-term). Still not as fast as the competition, but it looks like an improvement.

Long-term v6.45.9 broke both 2.4 and 5GHz wifi on wAP ac (RBwAPG-5HacT2HnD). It simply refuses to boot up after Netinstall.
Repeated Netinstall process produces same result.

Back down to Stable V6.46.6, and it's working again.

(My wAp ac running as CAP under RB493G as CAPSMAN. Have not been able to upgrade firmware on wAP ac except via Netinstall).

MTeeker That must be something specific to your particular unit. We have 8 wAP ac units here also running as CAPs, successfully upgraded all of them to 6.45.9 from 6.45.8 two days ago (both RouterOS and RouterBOOT), no problems so far.

You wrote "Back down to Stable V6.46.6", so I guess you tried switching to 6.45.9 from 6.46.6. Do you have RouterBOOT also upgraded to 6.46.6?

.... Do you have RouterBOOT also upgraded to 6.46.6?
It's good to know that it only happened on my box, given your successes on eight other wAP ac's.

As a matter of fact, I upgraded routerBOOT to 6.46.6 earlier when I flashed v6.46.6. RouterBOOT remained 6.46.6 when I tried 6.45.9. Not sure if this was the cause of my failure.

Lastly, are you able to upgrade firmware on your wAP ac normally. For some reason, I have not been able to. Henece Netinstall. And I have not been able to find out why.

MTeeker

Absolutely. Upgraded RouterOS on all 8 units from CAPsMAN, and once they all came back online rebooted once again to upgrade RouterBOOT (they all have /system routerboard settings set auto-upgrade=yes). All went smoothly.

Gonna throw this up in the lab but any updates on the weird OSPF issues that were introduced 6.44.6 and upwards ? We had to go back to 6.44.5 as we'd get adjacencies seemingly stuck . Only thing that brought it back was either disabling/re-enabling the instance or rebooting the router.

Busy testing at the moment to see if I can reproduce the issue that happened in 6.44.6 on 6.45.9
We had routers with adjacency for weeks running that would all of a sudden start acting up.

Long time ago, Long Term / Bugfix channel really good for mission critical system, because its already stable n tested. But now LT channel is just a name. In fact, the only latest real stable LT is 6.43.16. So why MT create LT n Stable channel if both unstable just like Testing channel?

Mikrotik have to choose between being enterprise os which is offering stability, or soho os which is offering alot of features but unstable.

Mikrotik always, I mean always, sell new hardware before make the software for it. Everytime we buy new hardware, we must wait for about 6 months before that hardware can be stable. After that hardware become stable, next version can be unstable again. Man, do u guys sell hardware for business/enterprise or soho/toys?

Yes they prevent. I was working alot with RB951UI-2HnD with the most stable ROS 6.32.4. After some times, MT put factory version. Since that time, RB951UI-2HnD that I bought with factory version post 6.32.4 can't downgrade to 6.32.4. Netinstall prevent it. I was curious, I disassembly older n younger hw, n they both have exactly the same hardware. They prevent downgrade for what purpose?

...
In a fast changing IT landscape, rigidity in approaching marketplace is not considered a smart strategy for any business. That's given. Enterprise-class products are are more stable because of their better specs, longer development and testing time. And more expensive, as a result.

On the other hand, MikroTik would not be where it is today without having been accepted in many many developing markets as best value products at selling price points.

That somehow reminds me of a car analogy. Lexus cars are better quality and more reliable than Toyota ones. They are both manufactured by the same company.

My point: there is a trade-off in there when using MikroTik products. Some time the trade off may be a bit too much. Sure. But that should not invalidate its strategy.

P.S. I put on my former business analyst hat to offer no more than a bird's eye viewpoint. Wishing you a good day.

When they create CCR n CRS, that time they aim for enterprise router. But guess what? There are alot of CCR n CRS problem caused by software. After sometime, they can make a good software for CCR n CRS, but the next update will be unstable again.

I was working with CCR n CRS for a big factory. I ordered the latest CCR n CRS model but because it's really unstable, the boss dont wanna know any reason, i had to change to PC with x86 MT n HP switch. I lost my money for buying that CCR + CRS. I wait for long time before they can be stable n I can sell it to another factory. But when new bugfix update come n unstable, the boss dont wanna know if its software problem. I offer to revert to previous software version but he said its a bad product. He cancel my last payment because of that. Since then, I dont wanna use new MT hardware. They just give a big headache.

Sorry to hear you lost money over the purchase of some MT gears which had issues at implementation time.

I stopped wondering why tradesmen (such as plumbers and electrical device installers) prefer to work on products on which they had plenty of experience, rather than others. It was after I experienced a moment or two of 'not sure why' as answers to my clients.

Since then, I always try to implement products that I am reasonably sure of their functionalities and reliability for my clients. After all, they rely on my knowledge, however limited it was. Once or twice, I bought new products, set them up and had them running in my lab prior to installing it at client site.

It's fail-safe approach for me.

My two cents. Cheers.

Mikrotik devices can't be downgraded below factory-software version, which is the current ROS version at the time of manufacture.

Here we go again with another long-term headache...

Hopes for thew solution to 6.45.x + RB1100x4 problem have been destroyed again. First testing produces loss of internal DNS resolution and therefore DNS server settings propagation through DHCP also stopped working - and that with /ip dns set allow-remote-requests set to NO!

This means, that even 7 day interval for scheduled reboots is too long - as failure occured on 6th day...

The only thing I can maybe add .If you guys do a security update like 6.44.6 only put in the security update and leave further upstream patches to a following update , so we don't have to choose between security and stability.

6.43.16 was released exactly one year ago and it was about last long-term release, which had none of the problems 6.44.x and 6.45.x release tree had introduced.

With 6.44.x we got huge increase in DFS radar detections making some of 5 GHz frequencies essentially unusable and some of RB3011 devices started having spontaneous reboots.

6.45.x gave big headaches to al21400 devices and state of DFS radar detections remained about same as before. Only thing to hope is that 6.46.x long-term will turn out better than last 10 months of long-term releases have been giving us...

Well... I am not sure how can this get more embarrassing, than it already is...

Two diffenrent locations, both have RB1100x4, one has 6.45.8 and other has 6.45.9.
snap 2020-05-18 at 0.40.37.PNG
When CPU usage goes crazy and internal DNS resolution stops working, I try to make supout.rif and guess what? It is not possible, because process stops somewhere about 56% and I get disconnected. Another try gives same result. No desire to try this repeatedly as there's no guarentee about device being accessible after this. Reboot gets rid of the problem, but there's no use of making supout file after that.

What the hell is going on?

P. S. There's no easy way to access device physically on the location if somebody would try to suggest use serial connection.

Looks like "Restore default config" functionality is broken on my hap lite on this version. Getting no config at all after the reset.

That is not an indication of memory leak on its own. Does the memory usage keep growing? How does it look over time? Do you have a graph to show?

- about 80Mb free memoy after reboot and still decreases every day by ~2-3 MB. It's happens once per day, not each minute.
- i'm think that graph doesn't work properly cause it's empty

You have to enable resource graphing by adding a new rule under "Resource Rules" tab.

Well... I can tell you what is going on - I did a reboot after making supout proved to be impossible and some hours after that it left THIS in LibreNMS log
snap 2020-05-18 at 14.00.38.PNG
and surprise, surprise - it really shows just that
snap 2020-05-18 at 13.52.09.PNG
Is this one also one of these "cosmetic" issues or is 6.45.x crippling 1100x4 and 4011 devices? Fancy a RMA? If device has been in use for years (factory software 6.40.4)?

What next?

Yes it was. As I stated previously, we have 3 1100x4 devices with 6.45.8 and 6.45.9 and they all suffer from same problems to somewhat different extent. Others with 6.44.x versions are functioning without problems.

As update to previous - another reboot "brought" license back and this device now also is updated to 6.45.9. It is interesting to see, which would license level be after next reboot - almost like rolling a dice. This is getting really confusing...

No memory leak for me at all.. Memory usage seems the same like every previous build i have used before, no matter that is stable or long term one.. Currently on latest long-term, all seems fine, 10 days till now.

Now we know, how this starts.
snap 2020-05-21 at 10.13.44.PNG
This pops up in log and after that CPU usage goes up and stays there. More than one thing ceases to work after that - commands in terminal produce similar output with suggestion to send supout file.

The license level problem is also related to that because issuing /system license print also puts out similar error message in terminal and "adding insult to injury" - finally new terminal window refuses to open in winbox.

We'll see if supout can be made with scheduler or not, but after that attempt it is time to downgrade.

After 11 day uptime after flashed this long-term build.

- No memory leak. Still memory is the same !
- No licence Level issues reporeted before for my hAP AC2.

For people who is reported issues. Make sure that you update RoS and Firmware too to latest available compatible to RoS version.

Gonna throw this up in the lab but any updates on the weird OSPF issues that were introduced 6.44.6 and upwards ? We had to go back to 6.44.5 as we'd get adjacencies seemingly stuck . Only thing that brought it back was either disabling/re-enabling the instance or rebooting the router.
Hi, do you test OSPF issues yet? Any positive news?

Passed lab test with a couple of Ubnt and Cisco equipment . Going to go put it in a non critical area of the network with and see how it goes .
Not very optimistic as I've seen nothing in the changelogs indicating any sort of fix.

Hi,
I will test now on several non critical devices too.
For now - we have no large scale up/down events on core routers with many circuits, so no statistical data on ospf behavior.
I will inform on issue detection.

But it is true - no news on ospf fix in changelog.

Skins in web-interface stopped working after upgrading to 6.45.9. Checked on 2 different architecture routers.
If the skin is assigned to a specific group (read only for example), a user of this group after login to web interface will see all elements, even the ones that were deselected in skin. If the skin is selected manually in Design Skin menu, everything looks ok for this user.

Is it just for us or not?

Someone needs to tell Mikrotik that there is a bug in OSPFv3 (tested in 6.44.5, 6.44.6 and 6.45.8) when the router is experiencing high IPv6 traffic (1.5gbps here started to give problems). It is that bug that some complained about in the forum, the adjacency drops, and only goes back until the router deactivates and reactivates the instance of OSPFv3, while OSPFv2 does not present any problems. I believe it is possible to reproduce this bug by closing adjacency between some routers and leaving them with about 5gbps of IPv6 traffic (or more) for at least 2 days.

Yes, I already opened a ticket on the support, I talked a lot with them, and the conclusion I reached was this. Nothing to complain about support, there is only one problem and needs to be fixed. I still need to test version 6.45.9, but by the changelog, it should be the same.

The bug is already reported to Mikrotik support. Do not want to lose sleep over this issue, I'm leaving for another manufacturer to rule my network core. I helped with sniffer, with data, prints, tests, in short, everything that was within my reach.

I hope that Mikrotik will be able to reproduce and fix the bug.

@alexkv: why don't you upgrade RouterBoot on both units? It is adviseable to do so every time one upgrades RouterOS.

/system routerboard upgrade .. and reboot after that.

This is really interesting. I provided Mikrotik with needed information and my support ticket got this answer: "your device has a hardware malfunction. Please submit the device for warranty repair - if warranty is still valid".

I did a full rollback to 6.44.6 and now there is about 4 weeks of uptime without any problems whatsoever.

What kind of a "hardware malfunction" might it be if it disappears after firmware downgrade???

.
ROS v6.44.6 was my preferred firmware on RB1100AHx4 but reboots after 20-30 days continued. Mikrotik analyzed the supout and responded the same, hardware issue please return.

Upgraded two of my LTAPs from 6.44.6 to 6.45.9 and LTE stops working. On status tab it says a sim is not inserted...... roll them both back to 6.44.6 and LTE works great again. Any ideas?

Now it is 48 days without any of these problems that necessitated scheduled reboots every 3-5 days to be able to maintain normal network functionality.

"Hardware malfunction" which seems to miraculously disappear after downgrade? This does not seem to add up...
