It is normal to update firmware after the ros update. It could sometimes happen that you won't have chance to. Anyway mikrotik normally says that firmware updates are not so essential because they just add new devices support that is not necessary for older devices you already run. Hard to say how much is it true, your experience says the opposite...

Re: 6.31 released

Wed Aug 26, 2015 12:45 pm

i try upgrade my RB493aH .. run 5 min and blocked, cant acess via mac or ip..
power off, power on.. again 3min, again 20 min.. WTF with 6.31.. with problems i return to 6.29.1, i have lucky that these mtik was on my house, so i can unplug power, but we have some network in the city, not good option.
Problem confirmed. I upgraded 28 routers (incl. two x86 machines) from v6.29.1 to v6.31 and, on 2 of those, I completely lose Winbox access via IP or MAC, as well as SSH, a short while after each and every reboot. Otherwise, they seem to function fine.

In our case, what sets these two 951G-2HnD routers apart from the others, is that 4 of their ports are on a bridge and ether5 is used to connect to another router – an identical 951G-2HnD which serves as the former's backup, and which can be accessed without problems. When ether5 is disconnected, the problem seems to go away. Do I need to contact support?

Update: It now seems that eventually all routers become inaccessible, irrespective of model, incl. e.g. 951G-2HnD, 2011iL, Grooves, the lot. All these machines' firmware was updated after the upgrade, so this is definitely not a firmware issue. The problem surfaces long after the upgrade, ranging from a few hours to several days, hence it could not be detected during early testing. Downgrading to 6.30.2 resolves the problem.

This is a very serious problem, as routers in remote locations cannot be accessed and hence cannot be downgraded. Ideally, it should not recur in a proper released version ever again.

We have tested 6.32rc5 in our CCR1036 Campsman-hotspot-Userman controller and have lost all capsman and interface config as happened with 6.31.rc11. Can't upgrade above 6.31rc10. Export from console freezes. Can't add capsman interfaces manually too. Reverting again to 6.31rc10 all config returns and ok. Can't have WMM power saving over capsman feature yet. Dont know what was introduced above 31rc10 but no more upgrades was possible.

Sended supout.rif. More than 20 minutes for generating the file!

Hope this helps. Thaks in advance MK.

Re: 6.31 released

6.31 version works fine on my test lab equipment RB750G after firmware upgrade to 3.24 .
Previous version of firmware was 2.26 and I was getting port flapping, kernel caused reboots and other unwanted issues.

It looks like Mikrotik staff tests only with fresh firmware, btw everyone never updates firmware without reason. If there are possible issues, you need to inform user with LARGE RED LETTERS that old firmware is not recommended with new release.

Can anyone confirm that 6.31 is ok with last firmware on their test environment.

Anyway I am still unsure if it is safe to install it in production environment.
Many update firmware each time when software brings new. Several complaint about the fact it can't be done in one go. Now you always need two reboots.

And although I have been updating firmware on each occasion, I also still occurred many of the issues flooding this topic.

Have to mention the rc5 looks to have fixed the reboot issue and 'invisible' issue of some of mine rb750UP's.

Yes, Mikrotik should pull off v6.31 from download page to avoid more headaches. We already have it enough in everyday life.

Normis,

Unfortunately version v6.32.RC3 still hangs or completely freezes devices RB751U-2HnD after using for a couple of hours.

For several years all standard releases was never a danger to upgrade to, but with version v6.31 you guys just made it. If I were you, I might consider to call back version v6.31 and to keep v6.30.2 as the latest standard release.

Dominet.
All versions are a danger to upgrade. Run it in a lab first. That's what we do, for a number of hours/days.

That's what I am still saying. Make own tests or don't update. When 6.31 killed one of my testing devices, the result was clear. 6.30.2 looks good and I don't see any reason to move forward now. But those who do the updates surely know why they have decided to.

Re: 6.31 released

Thu Aug 27, 2015 11:35 am

One of the mayor issues Mikrotik needs to address is the fact that an OS version proven to give so many problems is still beeing listed as 'current' for upgrades. Any user/operator that did not take the effort to read this manual (normally spoken that is not a required need when you buy certain product. Do you go to the manufactures forum before you upgrade to a new car?) and that thinks its time to perform a auto-upgrade is installing a version that brings loads of problems.

I seriously find Mikrotik should consider to pull back 3.31 from 'current' status and revert back to 3.30.2 as long as 3.31 or 3.32 is proven not to bring massive issues as they do right now.....

On the moment the policy of Mikrotik to keep 3.31 as 'current' lures many into situations that should be avoided. I think its yet another nail into their coffin.....

Re: 6.31 released

We had one rb433ah still giving regular problems going from 3.31 to 3.32rc1, to rc2 and rc3. Its ethernet ports crashed completely once a day. (Usually in the morning when traffic started to pick up from clients)
Traffic from this board toward adjacent rb800 started to loose more and more packages to a level the rb433ah became un-accesible. It takes about half an hour in which it looks sometimes the router sort of fixes itself a couple of times, traffic improved, but after a minute or so package losses went up to 80-90% again...
Luckily that board has its power controlled by a rb750 reachable via another route so we can do a powercycle to the rb433ah to bring it back. Immediately after the board comes back it runs fine the rest of the day ....
This morning I decided to give it rc5. See how that one is working......

rc5 did help me with some rb750's and SXT's somewhere else in my network. They were (auto-!)upgraded to 3.31 (because it was a 'current' version and it did work fine on about 30 other client SXT's somewhere else in my network) and 2 (out of 4rb750's and 30+ SXT's) suddenly became not accesible after a while... (5-10 mins). Not accesible for a winbox session. From neigboring router I could telnet them and reboot them. After the reboot I could than access them with winbox and upgrade to the latest rc version.
I updated these to 6.32rc5 and so far didn't lose these units anymore..... (18 hours now...)

Big WARRNING DO NOT upgrade 750UP I have problem on network after couple hours devices just crash some reset by watchdog some not.
I kill my network with this upgrade.
Agree, I have similar problem. If a POE powered device is connected, the 750UP completly hangs. I had to downgrade to ROS 6.29.1.

Upgrade to ROS version 6.30.4 it works, but with 6.31 it very unstable.

All RB750UP's Does not work stable with this version. (input chain (device) ip/Mac becomes inaccessable) other routers are not affected so far.

Urgent bugfix needed.

Please follow changelog for 6.32rc versions. Basically, if you use version 6.x, then check if issue is not fixed in 6.x+1rc.

Omnitik and 750UP issues are already fixed in 6.32rc version for a while now.

Not true! The 'becoming invisible' issue of some 750UP's existed until 6.32rc2, and rc3. Only now in rc5 it seems to have been solved....

First of all use normal carácter size... this is very irritating. Like you are shouting...

Secondly, 6.31 is not a stable package at all, even although the website looks like to suggest it is.... (that's why you have to follow this forum...)

So go back to earlier version, say 6.27 (after installing 6.31 the earlier versions are shown in the options section of the package upgrade window) and try again to install...

Good luck.

After upgrading our 751G-2HnD to 6.31 it locks up after running for some time. The unit can be pinged but other than, the unit cannot be accessed and does not pass traffic, requiring a system reboot.

We have a 951G-2HnD and CRS112-8G-4S that do not appear to be affected, though their load is a bit lower.


I have downgraded all systems to 6.29 (which ran great) for the time being.

Board: RB912G-2HPnD
ROS: 6.32rc6

Can't access router config (winbox/telnet/mac_telnet/web). It's a lab board with no config at all (only IP from dhcp); I can ping the dhcp assigned IP but nothing more.
The board work ok on 6.30.4 or 6.31, but something go wrong with latest 6.32rc6.
