Mpt0: errors during upgrade



  • Hey all,

    I just did the 2.2 -> 2.2.1 upgrade from the web interface using the "invoke auto-upgrade". option.

    The upgrade file was downloaded, and after a while I lost contact with the outside internet, as expected, as I was expecting a reboot.

    The problem is, it never came back up after the reboot.

    So, I went and looked at the console where it was stuck in some infinite boot loop with an mpt0 error stating that max retries (5) had been reached, and that it was retrying, over and over again.

    (I can't pull up exact log entries, as for some reason they are missing from /var/log

    I power cycled it, and it came back up as normal again, with 2.2.1 installed.

    I vaguely remember this happening the last time I used the auto-upgrade as well.

    Power cycling worked out well and I don't currently have a problem, but I figured I'd post here just to make everyone aware.

    My system is running as a guest in ESXi 5.5u2, assigned 1GB of RAM and 2 LGA1366 era Xeon cores.
