Upgrade to 2.1.5 bricked my system
I work for a small Library, we run PfSense on a Supermicro 5015a appliance. Runs excellent. I attempted to invoke the autoupgrade to 2.1.5 last night, it went through the download and the "install" and then never rebooted. I tried it again, same thing. After that I figured I would do a reboot. When it rebooted, it hung on the F1 prompt right before it boots the OS. Sometimes it would randomly reboot on it's own. Luckily I had a backup config, and could just reinstall, but wanted to understand what happen. I took the time during the downtime to upgrade the firmware to 1.2b which is the latest. I am curious if it just bricked the install, or did I do something wrong? My system BEFORE reinstalling was:
Supermicro appliance 5015a
Intel Atom D525 1.8 Ghz processor
4 gb DDR3 memory
32 gb Sandisk Cruizer ultra small height flash drive as storage (sits inside appliance on motherboard usb port)
probably just a issue with the build see if a newer build fixes it our just wait for 2.1.6.
chances are you did nothing wrong and its just the new version
I may be wrong I just started using Pfsesne so im learning
Are you using a serial console? Are uou running the Nano version?
Nothing after the bootloader (F1 prompt) is whay happens if the console switches to serial and you are using vga+keyboard.
If it's nano: forget about the UPDATE function, that didn't work for me since April, I make new CF cards every time for updating, it's not worth the hassle with the update button…
Worked fine for me once the correct images were in place. Worked fine before that if you specified the correct image at the cli. I haven't tried a nano+vga image personally though which the OP may well be running.
