(FIXED) HP Install issues & RRD graph failures

  • FIXED:


    • Do NOT change architectures when doing an upgrade… bad things will happen.   If you are on 1.2.3, stick with I386.

    • If you are using HP ILO or other OoB management interfaces to present the ISO and you are encounter the error in post #2, enter "cd9660:/dev/iso9660/pfSense" (no quotes) at the error prompt.   This could also occur with other drive types.

    Background: I have a HP DL360 G6 server that I was attempting to install 2.0 beta on (for a lab) and I could not get the 2.0 iso to install (BSD has issues remounting the CD filesystem using HP ILO -- not sure why).  I was able to install 1.2.3-Release and ran a console upgrade to 2.0 (Sept. 30 snapshot AMD64).  Things started fine, but I was still getting progress indicators (.............) after 45minutes.   I figured it failed, but when I rebooted, I was greeted with 2.0.  Not trusting this build, I wan a firmware update from the web GUI which was successful.

    At this point, everything appears to be working with the exception of RRD graphs.  The errors I receive are similar and all related to the ARCH, see below:

    php: /status_rrd_graph_img.php: Failed to create graph with error code 1, the error is: ERROR: This RRD was created on other architecture/usr/bin/nice -n20 /usr/local/bin/rrdtool graph /tmp/system-processor.rrd-4year.png --start 1167523200 --end 1285867173 --vertical-label "utilization, number" --color SHADEA#eeeeee --color SHADEB#eeeeee --title "hostname - System :: Processor - 4 years - 1 day average" --height 200 --width 620 DEF:"user=/var/db/rrd/system-processor.rrd:user:AVERAGE" DEF:"nice=/var/db/rrd/system-processor.rrd:nice:AVERAGE" DEF:"system=/var/db/rrd/system-processor.rrd:system:AVERAGE" DEF:"interrupt=/var/db/rrd/system-processor.rrd:interrupt:AVERAGE" DEF:"processes=/var/db/rrd/system-processor.rrd:processes:AVERAGE" AREA:"user#990000:user" AREA:"nice#a83c3c:nice:STACK" AREA:"system#b36666:system:STACK" AREA:"interrupt#bd9090:interrupt:STACK" LINE2:"processes#cccccc:processes" COMMENT:"\n" COMMENT:" minimum average maximum current\n" COMMENT:"Use

    Is there anything I can do to correct this, am I in a half upgraded state?



  • FYI:  The attached image shows the error installing 2.0 from iso   (this happened on A64 & x86).



    at this point seemed to work… I.ll follow-up with results shortly.   (At first glance, it seems like the detection process on the ILO virtual cd is too slow and causes a failure.)

  • Good news:   Once I installed the AMD64 from the iso cleanly by remounting the rootfs, everything including the RRD graphs appear to be working.   The version I'm currently running is:

    2.0-BETA4  (amd64) built on Thu Sep 30 21:08:20 UTC 2010

    Hope this helps someone else.
