Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

I appreciate the note about scheduling releases; I am still under the opinion that "Stable" should be to the repos. May I suggest that we derive a name for Stable (restricted/blog only) and Stable (wide release)?

 

I think it would be really helpful to have a status or landing page that listed all the current branches development with their respective releases.  Something like this:

 

LTS Stable - All Access: 5.6.36

LTS Stable - Blog Access: 5.6.37

LTS Stable Candidate: 5.6.??

 

Stable - All Access: 5.7.20 / UCK: 10.0

Stable - Blog Acess: 5.7.23 / UCK: 10.1

Stable Candidate: 5.7.??

 

Testing: 5.8.? (I can't even find the release post any more)

 

You can see how hard it is for our community to keep track...it'd be awesome to have one spot to glance.

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Controller update went fine here.

 

Don't think the releases are confusing..pretty standard. And pushing it as stable would be ill-advised you never know how firmware is going to act when its fully out so it's nice to have a smaller set of users to update by blog then push to repo. I've seen firmwares pulled a couple times in the past year from issues discovered after releasing by blog.

 

Most customers I'd assume follow one path as well, most people trying to use this in a production settings aren't jumping around between release types. Testing is 5.8.10. It's pretty easy to see what's going on between the Stable Updates Blog and Beta Updates Blog.

 

I DO think a header at the top of the Stable Updates Blog/Beta Updates Blog with what you said for current versions would be nice as a quick reference. Even considering their can be multiple test versions at the same time

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Upgraded 5.7.20 on Windows. Noticed that the system properties file was overwritten so I had to change the custom inform port back. Everything else went fine. 

 

Still think the Windows controller should NOT be installed in a user profile. Please put it somewhere else.

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

New to the community here, so pardon me if I'm asking an already answered question, but, with my AC-LR, the check firmware update button doesn't seem to function. Is this a known issue with version 5.3.8?
I'd like to keep it updated, but, a little concerned with the 'automatic firmware upgrade' option under site settings and its possible negative effects on stability.

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

The provided checksum list file is incorrect.

 

The file linked in the 5.7.23 release post (https://community.ubnt.com/ubnt/attachments/ubnt/Blog_UniFi/313/1/checksums.txt) is the same as the one linked for 5.7.20 (https://community.ubnt.com/ubnt/attachments/ubnt/Blog_UniFi/302/1/checksums.txt).

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Upgraded this morning, and all is work, no detected network connectivity issues.

 

All that said, i have a wireless network SSID showing now as Hidden Network or a question mark depending on device with MAC addresses starting 92:2a:a8, There is 19 AP's showing in a wireless scan yet we are in the middle of a field with no buildings around us so much be something to do with our AP's playing up somehow. The Controller software is not showing this however, only a Windows wireless scan, or a Wifi Analizer scan on my phone!

 

Any ideas?

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

I'm looking at manually upgrading the firmware, but, I can't find where.

Is there somewhere within the controller software to force a firmware upgrade or does firmware have to always be manually updated?

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

In the controller software, goto Devices, select AP's and click the Rolling Upgrade option...

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

I'm not seeing a rolling upgrade option under devices and AP's?

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Have you only got one AP? 

 

Also, the right hand column have Locate / Restart should have Upgrade if there was an updated firmware available for your AP.

 

My list shows the AP's version number as well, but that is missing from your list, have you got a custom view listed? Cog in top right corner of list screen.

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Yes. I only have 1 AP. 

 

I have not customized the view. That is the only view I have.

 

If I select the config tab, it does list the version:

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

Interesting, my view shows this...

 

I get and Upgrade option to the complete right hand side if there is a firmware upgrade, and because of the amount of AP's, i get a rolling upgrade option.

Re: UniFi 5.7.23 Stable has been released

I confirmed a bug with the support channel today, they didnt elude to how long its been around but it seems the badnwidth limit will only take a value of 0 - 1024000 Kbps anything larger generates a "Payload Error". Choosing Mbps or Gbps doesnt seem to affect it since the form just converts back to Kbps on "Save".

I dont get how i can update from LTS to "non-LTS" stable on ubuntu 14.

This page suggests that the "stable" source is still the same but it also says 5.7 ist "testing":

https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/220066768-UniFi-How-to-Install-Update-via-APT-on-Debian-or-U...

So i would expect that apt-get upgrade would offer me to upgrade from 5.6 to 5.7, but it says that unifi is kept back.

 

How does one upgrade via APT and can you please get your descriptions straight?

https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000441548-UniFi-Current-Controller-Versions

 

Here the versions and there source list name

 

You don't use apt-get upgrade! This only used for the Linux version upgrade.

If the source list of your UniFi is referring to "stable" V5.7.20 will be installed with the command.

 

deb http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable ubiquiti

1 apt-get update

2 apt-get install unifi

 

Cheers,

My AP out door started to have an issue that right after WIFI connection it dropped connection.

Device continuosly retrying, but AP drops. Saved /var/log/messages, but not clever to see the issue.

After restarting it turned to be fine, but them later I realyted an AP AC PRO has the same symptom.

Restarted, is now okay, but checking the first outdoor AP, has the same issue: user device tries to connect, but right after it drops.

Now I restarted, again works, but prety sure it will come back...

What shall I do as next? Roll back?

See no error event at the GUI messaging system. At the AP /var/log/messages I see this (8c:45:00:00:d7:71 is the phone which I used to test...):

On customer service advice disabled "Enable GTK rekeying every..." in the advanced section. Now is okay as just recently restarted everything, let's see if issue is coming back or not.
