What is this? !) device-mode - added feature locking mechanism;

I see you have "enterprise" and "home" as device modes, what is the difference?

dhcpv6-server - fixed DUID generation with timestamp;
Is there a way to trigger this without reinstalling the router, or generally to reset the DUID?

Edit: Sorry, I missed that it is just for the server. Question remains: Can the client DUID be reset without reinstalling the router?

Yes, that is the goal of this change. protected routerboot is abused by criminals asking ransom money to unlock compromised routers, so it requires physical presence to enable protected routerboot from now on...

As a test, I tried to upgrade my hAP ac2 that now has just 5 separate packages 6.49 installed (advanced-tools,dhcp,security,system,wireless) to the manually uploaded bundle package for 6.49.1 and it fails with "not enough space for upgrade".
It looks like upgrading from separate packages to bundle package does not work on 16MB flash devices, I did the same on a RB2011 and a RB4011 without problem.

Earlier I tried to upgrade the hAP ac2 to v7.1rc6 encountering the same issue, which apparently is not a v6-to-v7 issue but just a "separate packages to bundle package on 16MB flash devices" issue. (SUP-66267)

It is now only in cli mode, no more in winbox. Probably another attempt to avoid remote tampering, this was also already done in v7.1rc6.

When the protected-routerboot=enabled setting is done and then a print is done to display the current setting, it shows the message about the button in red.
This is in fact the same as in winbox, the message is shown in the "current status" of that menu.

The description for flagged mode is confusing. On one part it says it checks for system files, but on another part it says it checks your configuration.
If suspicious configuration is detected, the suspicious configuration will be disabled and the flagged parameter will be set to "yes"
What is considered "suspicious"? If I have firewall rules to allow myself remote access, how can RouterOS know if these are suspicious or not? This sounds very risky if it will disable configuration it thinks is suspicious, a great way to get locked out of a remote router.

@East2, do they die when updating from 6.49 or did you first downgrade to an older version and then upgrade to 6.49.1 to test this?
I would appreciate more information regarding your experiences

Hi,

I have the same device and setup as you, I use separate packages install on my ac2, and I didn't encounter the "not enough space" issue during upgrade. (And I upgraded twice already now, from 6.47.10 to 6.49, then to 6.49.1)

Here are the installed packages on mine

Hmm, I don't think that's what pe1chl was trying to do, if I'm understanding the post right. And even if that was the case that the user was trying to switch back from separate to bundle, then I think the right way would have been to netinstall the bundle package. 😊

May I also add that I upgraded mine via /system package update install, and not via the manual upgrade of uploading the bundle package to the device, as pe1chl stated in the post.

I do not see why for this particular scenario a netinstall would be the way to go, especially when that is not documented on some MikroTik page.
Remember, it works fine on routers with more than 16MB flash, you can switch back and forth between separate and bundle by just uploading the desired .npk files and reboot. I tested that on RB2011 and RB4011 but it probably works on all routers.
It is also no problem to switch from bundle to separate packages on a 16MB router.
But now at this time it is not possible to switch back from separate to bundle, and because of that it is not possible to upgrade to v7 either.
I only bring this up because MikroTik may not yet be aware of it and may be able to fix this so people can upgrade to v7 easier.
When I want to do a netinstall I can always do that, on this router. But on many more remotely located routers it will be more difficult.

I understand now, and defer to your greater experience, as mine is limited to 16MB hAPs. I have not tried switching back and forth this way, only by doing netinstall, as relying on my limited understanding, one couldn't unbundle a bundled package by merely deleting the undesired package, which is not allowed. It needs to be installed unbundled, like a newly formatted device, which a netinstall does.

Unbundling can be easily done by uploading only needed/wanted npk files to device and reboot it. No netinstall is needed. ROS always tries to upgrade from uploaded file(s) at reboot time if uploaded file has higher ROS version than the running one.

I'm guessing that re-bundling fails for the same reason as does upgrade of bundled installation on devices with low free space and is not actually related to re-bundling process.

Well, there is actually enough free space. My guess is that the calculation of required space over-estimates the requirement when installing a bundle over separate packages, and then aborts with the "not enough space" message, while on routers with more than 16MB flash the calculated requirement is still within available space and the bundle is installed correctly (with all separate packages deleted).
I will probably just netinstall my hAP ac2, but it would be better when upgrades to v7 will still be possible in the future on the many devices with separate packages I remotely admin.
And I understand that the "bug" is in the currently-running version, not in the update being installed, so for it to be fixed there first has to be a v6 release that fixes the problem and only after *that* is installed a switch to *another* new version with bundle package will be possible, so better have this behind us now before there will be no more v6 releases...

*) routerboot - enabling "protected-routerboot" feature requires a press of a button;

I suggest that ONLY the alteration of defaults of reformat-hold-button and reformat-hold-button-max triggers the additional requirement to press a button and not the activation of protected-routerboot itself.
This way protected-routerboot can be set remotely (that's extremely useful for ISPs and service providers for automated deployments) and there is no fear of criminal/etc abuse.

Just remember, that protected-routerboot was initially there to protect the router configuration itself, and that's perfectly fine with the defaults of reformat-hold-button/-max. If someone wants to actually make really difficult to reset/netinstall the router (by altering reformat-hold-button/-max), then a button should be pressed.

Finally!! I have been talking multiple times to Mikrotik about this since long. Glad they took some measures now.
There is still a risk you can be locked out by some malicious employers who can have physical access. I'd like to see the feature gone forever or at least not available to CCR-s, CRS-s, any arm, basically devices that act as core routers and switches that control the whole network.
The feature is there to protect you from stealing or altering your own device but it can do more harm if you are left out of a network you are responsible to.

If you take security seriously, all network equipment and servers etc should be in a locked space.
Would you place a server outside in public, no. Just with an usb emulating mouse or keyboard you could install lots of stuff.

Upgrade to 6.49.1 resulted in a boot loop of hEX S (RB760iGS).
Due to an automatically script for firmware update, I can't say if the issue occured after installing the software or the firmware.
No access to device was possible until Netinstall, which solved the issue.

Delegated-IPv6-Prefix Parameter is not available/missing in Radius Accounting for PPP Service...

Please refer the attached Image... This is not allowing ISP to Implement IPv6 to our customers.. Kindly do the Needful Team Mikrotik.

This is really Important for Internet Service Providers for Implementing IPv6 to out Customers..

There is still a risk you can be locked out by some malicious employers who can have physical access. I
If you take security seriously, all network equipment and servers etc should be in a locked space.
Would you place a server outside in public, no. Just with an usb emulating mouse or keyboard you could install lots of stuff.
You qoted me but did not read in full I guess. I am not talking about server placed by the bus station, I am talking about someone who has credentials to access the rack room as I am not the only one who does.

Its is Found that Delegated IPv6 Prefix Parameter is not Received in Radius Accounting Packet for PPP Service. Please refer Screenshot Attached in above post.

We are getting Delegated IPv6 Prefix Parameter when we turn on DHCP in Radius menu but issue is that none of the parameters match with PPP Service.

Example: Caller-ID is PPP username in DHCP account but in PPP accounting the Caller-ID is Service name of the PPP Server, Similarly all other parameters…

This is creating difficulty for us to log the Delegated-IPv6-Prefix to users and due to this we are unable to implement the IPv6 to our Customers.

In India it is mandatory to Implement IPv6 before June 2022. As the Radius Accounting if not sending Delegated IPv6 Prefix in PPP Service it is creating a huge delay in implementation Process.

Hope Team Mikrotik will understand Our Situation and do the needful to resolve the same at the earliest.

You can never ever trust some 100%, but you can take lot of measure to make your solution as secure as possible within the budget you have.

Well .... security features and their usefulness depend on your user environment and enterprise/consultant/home activities.

Used to manage from Europe quite some installations in China and the US, and 21 other countries, from the company HQ. HQ was in control, devices were bought locally but configured by HQ.
Now I configure private MT devices in another country in Europe, where i never come near to one of the devices. (They are bought locally again)
I worked very well wit the prevous "protected routerboard" setting. Not the owner was in control, I was.
*) routerboot - enabling "protected-routerboot" feature requires a press of a button;
breaks that model.
It is common in IT that who has physical access is in control, I know. But it's not what we need in this setup.
viewtopic.php?t=176437#p891184
The owner is not even near when devices are used.

There is some hope: viewtopic.php?t=180445#p891633 , if a "power-off/power-on cycle" would enable this for a short time.
Text says: "turning power off or pressing reset or mode button".
Devices are powered over PoE from a managed switch or Powerbox, so network managers are remotely in control of the power cycle and it's timing.
But I guess this power cycle alternative is only for the "device-mode" changes.

New releases: "you win some, you lose some". One has to adapt.
"Protected-Routerboot will have to be set while physically cabling the device (That is not done by the owner)., or better after the config is tested, if a physical button press is needed.

@bpwl what's the big issue? if you configure remote devices someone has to plug them in for you.
So the button push is easy, whoever plugs the device gets a call to push the button when asked. woah, magic.

What is considered "suspicious"? If I have firewall rules to allow myself remote access, how can RouterOS know if these are suspicious or not? This sounds very risky if it will disable configuration it thinks is suspicious, a great way to get locked out of a remote router.
Yeah, I don't like this "flagged" stuff either. With zero control over it, this sounds like a trap that's waiting to cut your access at the worst moment because some of your configuration is misdetected or you upload "wrong" file or something like that.
I understand Mikrotik is trying to protect home users from backdoors and what else, but really... there should be a way to turn this off.
You can make it enabled by default and make sure you can't disable it afterwards (so to turn it off, netinstall with "no default config" would have to be used) but just have some way...

*) routerboot - enabling "protected-routerboot" feature requires a press of a button;

I suggest that ONLY the alteration of defaults of reformat-hold-button and reformat-hold-button-max triggers the additional requirement to press a button and not the activation of protected-routerboot itself.
This way protected-routerboot can be set remotely (that's extremely useful for ISPs and service providers for automated deployments) and there is no fear of criminal/etc abuse.

Just remember, that protected-routerboot was initially there to protect the router configuration itself, and that's perfectly fine with the defaults of reformat-hold-button/-max. If someone wants to actually make really difficult to reset/netinstall the router (by altering reformat-hold-button/-max), then a button should be pressed.
PLEASE read this recommendation. I concur only to use the button when setting the time requirement on something more than 100 seconds for example. ISP's use this a lot and this would completely break the original purpose of this feature.

Manual is clear about this.
After changing the device-mode, you need to confirm it, by pressing a button on the device itself, or perform a "cold reboot" - that is, unplug the power:
If you could do a soft reboot, it would not have worked as intended.

As I said... it all depends on your situation.
My installing/button pushing buddy is on-site 4 weeks in a year. He must ask permission to each owner to enter the houses, collect the keys, what cannot be done when tenants have booked the house.
But don't worry. "Protected routerboard" will be set at installation time now. And for the installed base the 6.49.1 is not in scope this year or next year.
And if the factory firmware is not above 6.49, there is still "downgrade - set or unset protection - upgrade".

I think there is no way that you can install MikroTik devices with default config from factory, and then immediately do remote management on them.
There will always have to be some local reconfiguration. Either you do this at a distribution center (maybe using netinstall) or you do that on-site (maybe from a laptop of the installer).
They will have to insert at least some configuration for a VPN or maybe load the TR.069 package when you have deployed that.
The person doing that can also setup the routerboot settings and confirm via button press.
When you prepare the routers in some local distribution center, it can be done there.

It is not different in routers from (some) other manufacturer! The times are changing and the security has to be improved.

This is way off-topic. But just to answer. They just have to plug them in (power on), as long as there is another well configured MT AP within wifi reach. In one response in this forum I helped someone who forgot to configure his 5 wAP devices and did send them over. Just make a station connect to the default open Mikrotik WLAN, and use the Telnet app (works like a proxy) on the good AP to configure the defaulted device. I can do this only with RouterOS, but it is as magic and gives me a sorcerers status. :-)

(That's also the way I recovered from the "impatient tenant who had pushed the only available button on the hAP ac2". I rolled out the "routerboot protection" later as mitigation, fully remotely, on all devices. I love the amount of control you have with RouteOS ! )

On my Winbox 3.31 upgrade reveals 7.1tc6 whereas Development reveals 7.1rc6 ... IMO this is not good practice as it conveys the wrong impression .... IMO if upgrade is to be kept then release candidates should be removed from the Development channel. The natural progression is Alpha[Development], Beta[release candidate], Stable, LT ...

Yeah, but the criminals love it as well. That is why this kind of thing has to end.
And MikroTik is quite late to the security party, that is why there are now hundreds of thousands of MikroTik routers in a botnet, and we see the
first victims here (undoubtedly there are many more that we don't see on the forum) who can either pay a ransom or bin all their MikroTik equipment.
Sure that was after insecure configuration, but still that is not an acceptable situation.

It was probably done to make way for an in-place one-click upgrade to v7 (no need to manually download a package and upload it to the router, as it is now).
Not that I think that v7 is ready for that, especially when using features like BGP, but when they want a sizable number of users to eventually upgrade to v7 this has to be prepared.

I know. (I'm a CISSP) Let me be clear DOS and Ransom must be avoided at all cost. So the "special" actions for these critical lock settings are a must.
I was just wondering if they had implemented the priviledged control mode enabled the first "nnn seconds" after power on or not (like in some other devices).
Wondering based on the "button push or power reset" doc line for device-mode.
This would have allowed my lazy nightly full remote control. But never mind my installation buddy passes there 2 times a year.
Netinstall prohibited is a quite hard lockout. Recover from a stupid (firewall or VLAN filtering enable) lockout by mistake could be lengthy then if "protect routerboot" enabled?

@Pe1tchl, @Bpwl, criminals do prohibit netinstall by altering defaults of reformat-hold-button and reformat-hold-button-max, is that right or am I missing something?

So, when someone wants to play with these, maliciously or not, then he would have to press a button! NOT when protected-routerboot is enabled with defaults.

What do you think on this proposed solution?

Reading the hangelog and it seems to me they did not fix this bug at all.

I am seriously disappointed that Mikrotik is not PRIORITIZING this issue.

So all my friends and relatives have Mikrotik Routers at home, mostly they know their way around quickset and how to upgrade that is bassically it.
One of them have contacted me because their device showed that they as FLAGGED, and it looks like in was part of Meris botnet, with configuration in system schedule, pptp tunnel to unknown location and some SOCKS configuration.
So i contacted most of my friends with MT and asked them to upgrade to this version. 2 more came in as FLAGGED.... out if 16.

First impression - really nice feature!!!.
I will problably have to force some device-mode on them also, just as safeguard.
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

That does not seem like that issue at all. We are arguing semantics now but when that issue will get fixed(if?) it will probably be written more like this(at least I would write it like this):

Hi, everyone.

mkamenjak, the issue with upgrades from old RouterOS/RouterBOOT versions has been fixed in this release. Also, the problem in the 6.49/6.48.5 versions did not appear due to the RouterBOOT upgrade, it simply started after the second reboot.

East2, I did not manage to create a reboot loop on my hAP ac lite when upgrading to 6.49.1 (from old or new RouterOS/RouterBOOT versions). So something else might be causing this problem. Can you share more details? What RouterOS/RouterBOOD version did you use before the upgrade? Did this happen with other versions as well? Perhaps the problem is related to a specific configuration?

Re: v6.49.1 [stable] is released!

Fri Nov 19, 2021 2:02 pm

Hi, everyone.

mkamenjak, the issue with upgrades from old RouterOS/RouterBOOT versions has been fixed in this release. Also, the problem in the 6.49/6.48.5 versions did not appear due to the RouterBOOT upgrade, it simply started after the second reboot.

East2, I did not manage to create a reboot loop on my hAP ac lite when upgrading to 6.49.1 (from old or new RouterOS/RouterBOOT versions). So something else might be causing this problem. Can you share more details? What RouterOS/RouterBOOD version did you use before the upgrade? Did this happen with other versions as well? Perhaps the problem is related to a specific configuration?
Out of memory it was a standard public IP-NAT-DHCP configuration.
Many users are having this problem and it seems thay stillhave that problem.
I have personally had only one bricked device which has long since been thrown in the trash. However I read the forums and many have the same problem. It seems even with 6.49.1.
If you wish I can send you a sanitized backup of the configuration from the bricked device somewhere privately?
What RouterOS/RouterBOOD version did you use before the upgrade?
6.46.x, most likely 6.46.6.
Did this happen with other versions as well?
For me this happened while upgrading RouterBOOT firmware on 6.48.5l. Others have discovered the same issue on 6.49 and it seems 6.49.1 as well.
Perhaps the problem is related to a specific configuration?
What kind of configuration could stop a device from booting?

Mikrotik was without configuration 6.48.3 only dhcp-client and that's it, connected via POE. After the first restart, everything was fine, after the restart with the RouterBoard update and after it a cyclic reboot.

So all my friends and relatives have Mikrotik Routers at home, mostly they know their way around quickset and how to upgrade that is bassically it.
One of them have contacted me because their device showed that they as FLAGGED, and it looks like in was part of Meris botnet, with configuration in system schedule, pptp tunnel to unknown location and some SOCKS configuration.
So i contacted most of my friends with MT and asked them to upgrade to this version. 2 more came in as FLAGGED.... out if 16.
Ok now the interesting question of course is: do you tell them to change something in the default config that allows others to access the management interface of the router from the internet (e.g. to allow you access when they need help), or are they using the default configuration including the default firewall as it as in the last couple of releases?
When you do not arrange access to the management interface from the outside (opening port 22,23,80 or 8291), it is possible that they were attacked from the inside, e.g. via some malware or a malicious webpage.
But it would be interesting to know if that really occurs on such a large scale, or if it is due to bad firewall practice.

Update (ROS and FW) made from 6.49 to 6.49.1 (ARM) on following devices without problems:
2x CRS328-2P-4S+
2x CRS326-24G-2S+
RB4011iGS+5HacQ2Hnd
4x cAP AC
1x cAP AC XL

My "Core" Router CRS326-24S+2Q+ (MIBSBE) will be updated later.....when I´ll get a downtime.

From my side, good Job MIkroTik ;-)

Hello Folks!

A warning!
The Dude packages was disabled and databases fully lost the dude setup was factory resetted.

This happened upgrading two CHR with running the dude installations hosted on KVM.
RoS 6.49 -> 6.49.1

Had to restore database from backup to get them up on track again.

Upgrade to 6.49.1 resulted in a boot loop of hEX S (RB760iGS).
Due to an automatically script for firmware update, I can't say if the issue occured after installing the software or the firmware.
No access to device was possible until Netinstall, which solved the issue.
Updated on these models without any issues:
RB1100AHx4
RB750GL
CRS309-1G-8S+
CRS112-8P-4S
RBcAPGi-5acD2nD (cAP ac)
RBcAPGi-5acD2nD-XL (cAP XL ac)

Will MIPSBE devices continue to randomly die on routerboot upgrade with this release?
Have CCR long boot issues been fixed?
Hi, for the CCR and long boot issue: I can confirm the issue is gone!!

I was the first one reporting this after 6.49 came out, I had a long discussion with MT regarding this issue, but they were able to recreate it in their labs and send me a beta-version. With this beta and now the final 6.49.1 the issue was/is gone. We updated now all our CCR1036 and CCR1072 and they boot as fast as with 6.48.x.

Updated a CCR2004-1G-12S+2XS from 6.49 to 6.49.1.
Exactly one day later, the router was rebooted by watchdog. This is not looking good, will keep an eye on it.

CapsMan ... wifi users who are registered in "access list" did not listed "Registration table" IF they are connected to another microtik (mAP in my case) in repeater mode.

if capsMan wifi network extended via wifi extender, connected allowed users not visible.

If client is connected to wifi extender, from wireless radio point of view it's not connected to cAP ... hence CAPsMAN doesn't see it as wireless client.

Hello, I have RB1100Ahx4 and DHCPs on VPLS lines where clients are connected. DHCP works but status of clients is waiting. Does anyone have the same problem?
RB1100Ahx4 - VPLS To - PE - AP in bridge - Clients v 6.49. and 6.49.1

DHCP status waiting flaw are also affected clients TP-links directly connected to ethernet on RB1100Ahx4.

I can see in log that static leases are being assigned. The time of waiting correspond with reboot RB1100AHx4 and upgrade to new version.

Sometimes I can see in winbox that Client is bound but after few second disappear.

You seem to expect that wifi extender is sort of signal booster. Well, it's not, it simply wouldn't work like that.The way wifi extenders work is that they act both as WiFi client (connected to "normal" AP) and WiFi AP. The "big feature" is that they copy off security profile from AP they connect to so they seem the same as AP to wireless clients. Then they simply forward frames between client and AP, possibly performing MAC address translation. If client is connected to extender, then AP will only see extender as connected client.

DHCP client "offered" and then disappears, is well known (certainly with wifi-extenders, when the "offer" never reaches the client because the MAC address of the client is used and not the one from the the wifi-extender. The client behind a wifi-extender (pseudo bridge) can only be reached with the extender MAC address and the client IP address , or with full broadcast. (IP and MAC ! The broadcast MAC is has been missing with MT DHCP server))

So for your device it is most interesting to know if it still works ok with 6.49.1
Because it seems to be rocket-science to make a temperature reading working correctly on all models and hardware versions.

It is mainly interesting to hear from people for which it does NOT work in some version. It is clear that there are different situations with different results, probably different hardware revisions.

anyway, client behind repeater must be visible, as their MAC address used as private access list rule, and MAC used to assign statis dhcp address. and at end, this client MAC address used firewall filter.
All others services works with client MAC behind repeater, only capsMan simple 'one tab' could not.

sound as simple missing sql part .. select bla, bla, bla, some_different_client_id from ...


Sometimes I can see in winbox that Client is bound but after few second disappear.

in regarding to Device-mode,i'm not really understand what flagged does.
wiki saying:

"If the system has detected unauthorized access to RouterOS, the status "flagged" is set to yes. If "flagged" is set to yes, for your safety, certain limitations are put in place. See below chapter for more information. "

which is not clear enough.

I agree with what is written above. I have no routers that are flagged but if I did what should I do? And how do I see it is flagged? Do I need to run a command every time to see it?
Great Idea but more info would be good.

It is not that difficult, right? It tries to detect certain configuration patterns that are suspicious because they are used by malware, and when it detects one it sets a flag and disallows a lot of operations, and issues a message when further config changes are attempted.
This is of course done in an attempt to lockdown routers that are currently affected by malware and are in a botnet.

Of course it won't work, because:
- this check is only added when the user actually updates their device, which many users in the category affected by this problem never do
- the check is only done on reboot, and many users never reboot their router
- the check is likely static, i.e. it is not fetched from some cloud server, so once the malware authors have analyzed it they can change their malware so it will not be detected anymore, and the arms race repeats where the new version will only be detected once the user has updated their router

Maybe I am wrong and the flagged check will actually download signatures (like a virus scanner does), but I doubt it. That would be mentioned in the documentation.
I think in this category there should be some "automatic upgrade" feature were every delivered router where the admin has not explicitly disabled that, the router will auto-upgrade via some security-updates channel where new versions are released only when security issues have been found in RouterOS. That would at least keep most of those millions of routers that are just installed-and-forgotten a bit secure.
Probably there should also be some protection via the device-mode feature to enforce explicit action before allowing admin access from the internet, but I realize that is difficult to implement. One would likely not want to disallow ALL firewall mods until a device mode has been enabled, because too many users would want or need to enable that and the risk even exists that they use that opportunity to disable all security measures implemented via device-mode.

Is there an OID for the "flagged" status? Id love to monitor it...
Its still unclear to me what triggers a flagged state and how I can resolve the situation.

The only thing I understand, If the device gets flagged some things wont work. And I would say a OID to monitor the flagged state is mandatory.
Sadly a /system device-mode> print oid doesn't the trick.

I think it will check for a combination of things like "the /ip socks facility is enabled", "an SSTP client is configured", "a scheduled job is present" etc.
When it matches the pattern for malware, the flag status is enabled.
To disable it, review the config and remove what is related to the malware, reset the flagged state via /system/device-mode/update flagged=no as mentioned in the documentation.
Or better: netinstall the device and rebuild the configuration from defaults.

Then it should also be possible to change those conditions.
For some all you mention can be specifically configured by the owner.
Doesn't make sense that each and every time flagged status gets triggered then.

I think your DHCP problem is not related to the 6.49.1 or 6.48.5 release.
The issues are much older. viewtopic.php?t=116963
And I believe (besides the STP disable action) that this here gets to some attempt to mitigate it (set the ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff broadcast MAC address) : viewtopic.php?t=160180#p842558

There are many possible reasons why the DHCP process doesn't succeed, so the first thing to do is sniffing to reveal what actually happens. I'd say open a dedicated topic as your issue doesn't seem to be specific to 6.49.1 and it will need some talk on what to do and what are the results.

The chance that a netinstall would solve it is quite low.

You are right. Problem was not related to the 6.49.1 release. It helped to remove pools and import them back and set correct pool to the DHCP.

Please, where can I find a voltage and temp measure? I mean in previous FW it was in health, but now I can't see it..
Getting voltage and temperature measurements to work across all possible device models and revisions appears to be like rocket science!
Every new release there is a group of devices where it no longer works. Be patient and it will return (and fail for someone else...)

So is this version a "real stable" version? (Concept referred to in this post about how 6.48.5 is NOT a "real stable" version):

I haven't installed it yet. I'm waiting for the "big guns" on this forum to give it the OK. :-D

Netinstall prohibited is a quite hard lockout. Recover from a stupid (firewall or VLAN filtering enable) lockout by mistake could be lengthy then if "protect routerboot" enabled?
After seeing what it takes to recover from a stupid lockout with "routerboot protected" enabled , I changed strategy.
(Only want to avoid that people erase the config by accident, when trying to "solve some wifi problem" on their own with the 2 available buttons on a hAP ac2.)
Since 6.47.10 the "reset" button can also be linked to own instructions (script or command line) . So I inserted "/system reboot" for the reset button.

Question now is , what happens if I set the hold time from 0.6 till 60 sec. Is it still possible to erase the config by holding longer than one minute ??
i.o.w. is the normal reset function (reset/CAPs mode/NETinstall) of the reset button delayed or disabled ????
Can the reset function still be invoked with pressing before power is applied?

The reset button will work ( during boot ) even if disabled, for example for netinstall or reset to defaults...
Only using the Protected Routerboot feature can actually disable the Reset Button.
The reset button will not erase any config by itself... If the time is set to default 0..60s then when you press it within that time it will run the script you have manually configured... If it is left blank it won't do anything. ( while the device is already powered on and has completed the Booting process )

Txs @Zacharias.
The key here is "during boot", that is fine as mitigation. Just wonder now why they could reset the config without power reset or reboot.
(They must have pressed until something blinked)

In that case you may want to deliver your devices with a modified default config script that installs the config that YOU want to be the default.
Then, the "solve some problem by using the button" will actually help when the config was somehow messed up!

@tomislav91, what does /ip socks export say, could it be that the issue is not related to upgrade but to a botnet suqtting on your device?
