EdgeMAX EdgeRouter software version v1.9.7+hotfix.3 has been released!

See release notes here:

https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX-Updates-Blog/EdgeMAX-EdgeRouter-software-security-release-v1-9...

  

This 1.9.7+hotfix.3 includes following new fixes:

  • [LoadBalancing] Fixed bug when load balancing was not able to do failover from ethX interface to ethY interface. Discussed here
  • [User account] WARNING! Disabled shell access for operator user. From now on operator user will have only WebUI access. If operator user will try to access shell (via SSH or telnet) then error message "This account is currently not available" will be displayed and access will be denied. We decided to decrease operator user privileges for security reasons.
  • [Kernel] Fixed bug when ER-8-XG was overheating and randomly rebooting when using certain SFP transievers. Discusses here
  • [Kernel] Fixed boot error messages which were seen on ER-X with new NAND flash modules.

Boy, for all the people who said 1.9.7 broke fail-over/-back, there's surprisingly little feedback about this hotfix.

There is feedback in the original thread 1.9.7 load-balancing (fail back) broken. Mostly confirmation that hotfix3 fixed the issue.

Yeah, I can see that from the raft of notifications Man Happy

 

I'll just watch the two threads for a couple days.  After seeing the problems some had with HF2, and being as, for whatever reason, my fail-over/-back works with plain old 1.9.7: Waiting a couple days seems the wise course of action Man Wink

Re: EdgeMAX EdgeRouter software version v1.9.7+hotfix.3 has been released!

Well, based on past 3 releases I guess we are all scared about what could happen.

There was one that even broke everything... I'm sure many people now are not feeling safe at all when seeing a new version due to recent quality track record.

Anyway I've updated one of our test env to hotfix3 and as of now it's working... Tho I've yet to test all the failover cases so no guarantees for me.

Right now I feel like a lab rat Man Very Happy

Is there some reason this download image is not posted on https://www.ubnt.com/download/edgemax ?

 

I didn't see it for ERL.

DNS entries via the DNS hostname Wizard are now woking again. Hotfix.2 broke that completely!

@xevious

 

Press the "SEE PAST FIRMWARE" button to see all of the published firmwares. I'm checking why the hotfix.3 is not at the top.

Dear support team.

 

After upgrading to HF3 my device became completely inaccessible. I've tried the factory reset option via power off/on + reset button with no success.

 

Please advise on how to proceed given that device is not accessible anymore.

 

Thx,

Alex

I contacted support and they said it has something to do with the hardware. Asked for the date code and when I sent it, I got an immediate reply to submit an RMA for it. Hopefully the RMA won't take too long.

If there's hotfix.4 I might just go postal.

Same, I had no issues with 1.9.7 (don't use load balancing), but the HF3 completely bricked my ERPOE-5 - can't ping it, can't do anything!

 

Stay away from this release !!!!!

 

EDIT: turns out it was filesystem errors, probably due to a dying usb drive

Had to roll-back to HF2 since my entire network came to a grinding halt. Something is seriously borked in this one too.

Why don´t these devices have backup images like every decent router or switch has?  It is not an option that installing a firmware update makes the device entirely unusable.

 

I`ve become very reluctant to update them.

 

BTW, how´s the documentation coming?

 

I´ve retired the one at home because of these issues.

@Phil_J @Cloudz

 

Could you please write more details about your upgrade to hotfix.3? Did you try to connect serial console to see what happened after upgrade?
