Re: NAS4Free 9.2.0.1.943 Released (FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE p3)

Postby id2test » 21 Jan 2014 16:41

On my server I have a Full OS Install and in the past upgraded quite a few times using a LiveCD (even last Friday with Rev 925).
This time I wanted to use a USB stick so burned the NAS4Free-x86-LiveUSB-9.2.0.1.943.img to it and booted the server.
The upgrade seemed to go as always, until errors occurred:
Failed to store the configuration file.
This resulted in End of install, and end of OS...
I had the same/similar error before (rev847 : viewtopic.php?f=78&t=4833) but then the install continued and completed.
OS is in a 4096MB partition and there's no Swap.

So I installed again using a PREVIOUS version on CD, which went fine.

On ANOTHER machine I tried the same upgrade, but this time from a CD created from NAS4Free-x86-LiveCD-9.2.0.1.943.iso (I also had the burn program re-read the CD to compare with the image and all was OK).
The upgrade seemed to go OK, until errors occurred:
Failed to store the configuration file.
Also on this machine this resulted in End of install, and end of OS...

Why does upgrading Full OS Install not work anymore? It still worked when I upgraded to 925 4 days ago.

Thx.

---

Edit:
This is what I tried next:
- on machine #2 did fresh install of 943, then 'upgrade' to 925 and then upgrade again to 943; error, but no issue (?!)
- on machine #1 did fresh install of 925, then upgrade to 943; error, but no issue ...
Of course the fresh install creates all partitions again. Both machines have over the last years been upgraded numerous times and run many versions; could this issue be from a partition/file status the upgrade did not expect and stumbled over?

Hello!
Seems that your issues are expected.. Quoting the first post:
zoon01 wrote:lady's and Gentlemen,

The NAS4Free just released its first 9.2.0.1.943 release today!

This release will be production ready however one of the things on the todo list will be the bge WOL patch.
This patch will be ready for the next release and could not be adapted from 9.1.0.1 directly.

NAS4Free Upgrade from 9.1.0.1 to 9.2.0.1.XXX
============================================
Upgrade NAS4Free full from 9.1 to 9.2 from LiveCD/USB is problematic.
Upgrade NAS4Free embeded from 9.1 to 9.2 from webgui or from LiveCD/USB is not posible.
problems are due a new size of boot partition.
Please download/save NAS4Free config to safe place and backup files from second partition if you use boot disk as system+data+swap Disk.
Only try to upgrade if you know that your boot partition is 1G or more in size, otherwise a install from scrath is the recomended way, sorry for inconvenience


Don't forget create backup configuration of NAS4Free before upgrading!

1. System|Backup/Restore: restore your config.
2. Disks|Management : click on "Clear config and Import disks" to update configuration.*
3. Disks|Management|Disk|Edit: After step 2, you will need to re-activate S.M.A.R.T.
monitoring for every device.

*Note : If you have RAID controllers but cannot parse S.M.A.R.T. info properly,
please add correct variables in System | Advanced | loader.conf to load the correct
kernel modules for controller support. Then reboot and "Clear config and Import disks"
again to update configuration.
..........
Regards,
NAS4Free Team


You write, of course, that your partition is 4GB, thus bigger than 1GB which is mentioned in the OP, but still, this is a major version change and I suppose the best way is clean install and config restore afterwards, anyway...

I have a 4 GB stick as boot partition. Upgraded my embedded N4F via webgui from 847 to 925 and then 943 without any problem yet (but of course had to clear config)

I actually upgraded my backup NAS embedded version from 9.1.0.1.847 to 9.2.0.1.925 without issue (although people were saying it is not possible), lol
Just pointing out that in case of such major changes in OS, perhaps the clean installation is the best way to go... ;)

The same warning is in the 925 - also 9.2 - rel notes, and the upgrade to that version went OK.
But there are not many guarantees in life... ;)
I just hope any next upgrade will go as smooth as before.

I just played around with this and found mDNSResponder is not starting in this release.

Doing a similar workaround as listed here http://sourceforge.net/p/nas4free/bugs/149/ fixes the issue.

Code: Select all
nano /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf


example: current file shows

Code: Select all
nas4free
_device-info._tcp. local.
1
model=Xserve


and change to:

Code: Select all
nas4free
_device-info._tcp local.
1
model=Xserve


and then

Code: Select all
/usr/local/bin/mDNSResponderPosix -b -f /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf


fixes the issue and I am able to see itunes/daap server on my network. It seems that extra"." before local. is causing problems.

Hi vandy,

Did you do full install or upgrade ?

Mind if I suggest you guys to carry on this WOL discussion in a new thread ? That way it is easier for topic searching and for future reference.

SUCCESS!!!!
With an added name-string in /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf zeroconf/bonjour worked like a charm!



Hi,
between .847 and .943 there's a difference in the config-file /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf - a line is missing.

With this line added (the name of the Server), zeroconf/bonjour is working just fine ...

Code: Select all
# in .847 ##################### in .943 #################################################
                               
nas4free-v847                 #                                 <--- This line is missing
_device-info._tcp. local.     # _device-info._tcp. local.
1                             # 1
model=Xserve                  # model=Xserve
                              #
nas4free-v847                 # nas4free-v943
_http._tcp. local.            # _http._tcp. local.
80                            # 80
path=/index.php               # path=/index.php
                              #
nas4free-v847                 # nas4free-v943
_ssh._tcp. local.             # _ssh._tcp. local.
22                            # 22


To test, do modify '/var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf' and then
Code: Select all
killall -QUIT mDNSResponderPosix ; /usr/local/bin/mDNSResponderPosix -b -f /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf


vandy wrote:... It seems that extra"." before local. is causing problems.


Sorry, the "." after '_device-info._tcp' doesn't change anything - but an added name does,
for now - but an missing dot can cause some problems in future releases !

And if you change the name of the server, via webgui, this only changes the names within the services, but
it doesn’t add the new name at the top of the config-file, maybe that's what's broken.

In addition to this post: zeroconf/bonjour is working out of box - if and only if you enable AFP and specify a
Server-name there (it could be left disabled afterwards), the default one doesn't get populated - that’s a bug !

http://nas4free-943/services_afp.php > Server Name
---> if empty Server Name <---
Comment:
Name of the server. If this field is left empty the default server is specified.


Does the devs get this information or should I pm them ... ?

Regards, OlafD01

P.S.
There was a change in the source ( /trunk/build/ports/mDNSResponder/files/mdnsresponder.in ):
Code: Select all
from
67      -v "//system/hostname" -n \
68      -o "_device-info._tcp. local." -n \

to
67      -v "//afp/afpname" -n \
68      -o "_device-info._tcp. local." -n \

Thank you! works like a charm with a specified AFP server name (and so does my Apple TimeMachine backup)!

I finally got link aggregation working. It seems the webgui doesn't modify /etc/rc.conf properly.

although setting up lag in the gui puts the correct lines in /etc/rc.conf:

Code: Select all
ifconfig_igb0="up"
ifconfig_igb1="up"
cloned_interfaces="lagg0"
ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto lacp laggport igb0 laggport igb1"
ipv4_addrs_lagg0="192.168.1.100/24"



but the gui didn't remove the reference to the previous interface:

Code: Select all
ipv4_addrs_igb0="192.168.1.100/24"


At this state, your traffic will not be passed properly, unable to reach the nas. removing the ipv4_addrs_igb0="192.168.1.100/24" line in /etc/rc.conf fixes this and link aggregation works as it should.

edit: this also fixes the "dhcp: bad value" error during boot up.

What's happened to the upgrade process recently? it used to go so smoothly.

I'm on 9.1.0.1 - Sandstorm (revision 847) and have no idea how to upgrade to the latest anymore because I did it through the GUI every time and it was fine apart from backing up my config beforehand. Now I'm wary of it hosing the whole configuration.

Please make it work through the normal webgui again.

it's a bit different because you do a upgrade from BSD 9.1 to BSD 9.2 and reserved space on embeded install grow from 384MB in 9.1.0.1.847 to 1000MB in 9.2.0.1.943 so normal webGUi upgrade can be dangerous (once said it, some users upgreded and do not notice problems).

Once you finally upgrade to 9.2.0.1.943 your next updates are from webGUI like old ones.

Right, so I guess I should back up my config, use another usb stick in the meantime and apply config after? Use some windows imaging tool to write the file to the new USB stick?

edit: wouldn't the size difference only be a problem if your USB stick was too small? I have an 8GB one in there.

Eh, thought I'd be brave and try the webgui upgrade method. Waiting for it to come back up .. if ever ;)


Well that worked fine, I just had to clear config and reimport the disks.

Still using fuppes? oh my god.

nice find, i will try this on a server of mine that LAGG hasn't worked on since about 9.1.0.1 rev431 (rev 431 is the last version that it worked for me).

Trying to update NAS4Free-x64-embedded-9.1.0.1.847.img (with 2x HDD on Intel Atom D410PT 2GB RAM)

I didn't noticed warning on update impossibility (seen some weird non official changelog - anyway where is always good changelog, I always trying to google it :-/) and did update via webGUI to NAS4Free-x64-embedded-9.2.0.1.943 image,
-----> FATAL ERROR on 1st boot, error on missing device or sth

So then tried to boot from fresh stick NAS4Free-x64-embedded-9.2.0.1.943 (win32 image->usb)
another -----> FATAL ERROR on 1st boot

so then I prepared another (this time liveUSB) NAS4Free-x64-LiveUSB-9.2.0.1.943.img (win32 image->usb), this time the nas4free is boting OK but when I hit '9' -> Install embedded to CF/USB ... i have only 'da0' (my two HDDs), NO 1st usb stick (which I boot from), nor 2nd usb stick (which I wan't to install onto) so can't continue update in any known way.

Appreciate for any help.

Hi anteroom,

9.1 to 9.2 is not a straightforward update due to increase of disk space required. Please read CHANGELOG here :
