Netgate_Coreboot_Upgrade issue with XG-2758
Tried to update 2 of 4 XG-2758 and it's not working. >:(
The version is reverting to a lesser firmware version
The serial number in the console looks like this ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ and in the GUI ����������
Firmware update didn't work on one of my SG-4860's but I'm sure that was an INTEL ATOM core processor issue (unit was RMA'd).
When I attempt to run the update again I get this in the GUI:
The following input errors were detected:
Coreboot update failed.
Netgate Coreboot update output
Incorrect flash image file size.
Failed to update OEM section, exiting …
Updating flashing ...
Serial Number Read from Flash �����������z����
I would post the logs but I have a /24 & /23 subnets on the box (all ip addresses present) so it took up most of the log that I can view in the GUI.
Needless to say I'm talking about production units here and I'm not to happy that both sites now have backups that I can't trust...
How do I resolve this issue?
Thanks for your help.
Looks like this: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/8047
But you may have to contact our support team for help fixing the serial number.
That link was INCREDIBLY helpful!!
Halted the box, flipped the switch off, unplugged/plugged the unit, then turned the power back on.
Problem was solved.
