Upgrade from 5.6.23 > 5.6.24 went fine with no obvious issues.

yup, super quick update from 5.6.23. Things seem good. Still not loving the memory usage, but pretty sure that's java being java. =/

Re: UniFi 5.6.24 Stable Candidate has been released

I´m on 5.6.22 with Unify Cloud Key (and firmware 0.8.2). I don't see any 5.6.24 update available on the Controller. Your release notes says "If your controller is running on a UniFi Cloud Key (UCK), make sure it is on firmware 0.6.4 or later, otherwise the controller will not start. This firmware is available via the normal upgrade mechanism found in the controller or it's local management page"

Smooth upgrade yesterday from 5.6.22, I've seen no problems so far.

Re: UniFi 5.6.24 Stable Candidate has been released

curious as I'm probably missing something.. how were you able to upgrade if the repo "stable" is still giving 5.6.22

You can't update using the repository since it hasn't been updated yet.  You need to wget the file via the URL in the blog announcement, then dpkg -i to install it.

Please excuse me for being ignorant.

 

It is expected that airView will stop occasionally. A stop/start sequence should restore functionality.

 

what is airView?

 

thanks,

chris.

@lhsit It’s one of the cool new features that are supported by the AC-SHD, which allow you to analyze channel activity in real-time. Of these features, airView is the spectrum analyzer. Here’s some info on the other feature, airTime:

The only demo of airView I could find is in this video by Chris from Crosstalk:

EDIT: added info on both airTime and airView

Wlan schedule Problem !

 

Wlan time can still not be set correctly. Would only wlan tomorrow from 07.00 to the night 01.00 clock switched on have. Unfortunately it is still only until 24.00 clock. Bug in the 5.5.20 - 5.6.24 update? Wait for the solution soon 1 year for the fix

Re: UniFi 5.6.24 Stable Candidate has been released

I'm unable to log into the controller from unifi.ubnt.com remotely, i can only log in locally.

 

Am i doing something wrong? Cause the update completed sucessfully and i'm not seeing any issues locally. I added the browser log report and a picture of the error that comes up. The local machine that it was on has been restarted and the only thing installed on the VM machine besides java.

Re: UniFi 5.6.24 Stable Candidate has been released

Upgrading from 5.6.18 to 5.6.22 destroyed my controller. Did a complete clean install on fresh AWS ubuntu instance and restored from backup config file, but unifi crashes even faster now. Have to restart the virtual instance every few hours! Help

Try this. Running unifi on AWS typically doesn't work properly due to insufficient entropy.

This.

 

Not clear why this hasn't been addressed.

Interesting. I don't feel like this is an entropy problem. Feels like the server is running out of memory, but haven't caught it yet as it happens so fast.

@dihewidd Just asking the obvious; did you check /var/log/unifi/server.log for hints?

You should be able to install/enable sysstat and adjust the frequency to 1 minute (instead of the default 10 minutes) and use that to prove/dis-prove the "running out of memory" condition.

Hi

 

Does 5.6.24 help with STUN Communication Issues we are seeing in 5.6.22 with USG-3P please?

 

Cheers
