Hey I got me a testlab at work. (NX-1465-G5)

I wanted to see how easy it is to upgrade AOS & AHV.

Aos went flawlessly. but i tried to upgrade AHV-20160601.44 to AHV-20160601.50

I started out just fine, but now it is stuck at 28% Screenshot below:





There were no VM's running in the cluster besides the CVM's


Any advice?

It seems I was just being impatient since the process is now at 49%.

It took around 100 minutes for 1 CVM. I suspect the reason is because they are only at 24g RAM.

Will test this the next time we reimage the block.

well sometime the process not running smoothly. I rather to upgrade it via IPMI rather than Prism. as Prism run on CVM it will disrupt when host on upgrade process. assigned CVM memory will not affect during upgrade process

Depending on how many packages need to be upgraded, the hypervisor upgrades can take a long time. The important thing here is that VM service isn't impacted and that the process eventually completes

If service is impacted, or the process never completes, then we've got a problem, and thats when you should be creating a support ticket.

Even for lab issues, we're happy to take tickets, to investigate where our product isn't working correctly.

I just upgraded to AOS 5.10 and now need to do a AHV upgrade. The AOS upgrade took amost exactly 1 hour per 4-node cluster. If the AOS takes 100 mins per node, that's taking significantly longer than the AOS unless @sverhoevne experience was more related the lab hardware. I'll find out later this week. I wish there were some rough guidelines on how long these upgrades should take.

Hi jlackman, Im in the process of doing the AHV upgrade portion now as well. Did yours go fine, im assuming so. Im stuck at the same spot the original person who posted this, but with 5.10
