Problem with Kernel upgrade
« on: December 13, 2014, 08:55:16 pm »
I wanted to run an update on my md, running 12.04
And get this :

make sure you do this on the running MD (local terminal or ssh, not in chroot).

if you continue to have problems then try:

Code: [Select]
rm /boot/initird.img
rm /boot/vmlinuz

and then retry you upgrade

Re-run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh on the core and then choose "Rebuild MD" from the webadmin for that Media Director.  Something is not right.

it seems there is a regularly occuring problems with those upgrades on the md. Sometimes its ok, other times it give the same error as before. Then I will rerun Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh and rebuild the image of the md.

The other thing I noticed today with a kernel upgrade on the core. After the upgrade, I rebooted the server. When it was finished, none of the phones were registered again. So I rebooted the server once more, but still no luck. In the end I had to reinstall Asterisk and now its working again.

You must run the dist-upgrade on the running MD.  I have not had any issues with dist-upgrading any of my MDs so I cannot re-create this.

The asterisk issues have not been seen before, sounds like a dkms issue with the dahdi components.  Without specific errors from the upgrade and following reboot I cannot speculate further.
