Updating to 1.2.1



  • Attempting to install on a Dell Dimension L550r…

    Update to 1.2r BSD6.3 just hung.

    Full install from cd worked.

    Attempting to update from backup I get...

    "Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /usr/local/www/interfaces_assign.php on line 213 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /usr/local/www/interfaces_assign.php on line 213 "

    DHCP service will not start.

    I now get this across the top of the screen.

    "Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /etc/inc/util.inc on line 327 "

    Seems like things were working right before my config backup was applied...



  • Starting with a fresh install…  dhcp service will not start.

    Next question...

    Is this the kind of reports you guys want??   ;D

  • If you encounter a defect, any additional information you can provide (like logs or output from trying to run the dhcp server manually) will be very helpful.  As much information as you can provide to help identify the cause of the defect so that the developers can quickly address the issue.



  • I did attempt to start the dhcp server with the gui with no luck.  Says it started but still showed the X.  And no service was present.



  • Verified and resolved.  Please try the next snapshot (building now).



  • Using

    1.2.1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT
    built on Tue Jul 8 07:24:59 EDT 2008

    Same issue.  No DHCP server.

    Just noticed also it the system doesnt seem to use the dns provided to it by my hardware routers dhcp service for its own needs. I had to fill in the dns servers on System/General Setup. Before that the package page wouldn't populate and the time client couldnt get to any server I gave it to look at. Ill go to my modem direct tomorrow and test.



  • Jul 8 01:34:23 dhcpd: For info, please visit http://www.isc.org/sw/dhcp/
    Jul 8 01:34:23 dhcpd: Wrote 0 leases to leases file.
    Jul 8 01:34:23 dhcpd: No bpf devices. Please read the README section for your operating system.

    From my logs



  • I can confirm this it does look like DHCP is broken again after the earlier fix that did appear to work.

    Just tried - pfSense-Full-Update-1.2.1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT-20080708-0725.tgz (08-Jul-2008 04:02 - 38M)

    Same snapshot…I can confirm the same problem...also with the earlier pfSense-Full-Update-1.2.1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT-20080708-0410.tgz as well.

    I have an earlier snapshot running somewhere else, and it seems to be working there, I not in front of it so I can't get the build date presently...

    Everything else seems great though! :D



  • It was working on;

    pfSense-Full-Update-1.2.1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT-20080708-0032.tgz (07-Jul-2008 21:10 - 38M)

    but then got broke again when the loadbalance got fixed IMHO.



  • Fixed.  Try next snap

    Ive put my system back in place heading up my network against the modem.  Still seems that I need to have dns servers listed on the General Setup page and that my ISP's DHCP assigned servers are not automatically used.  Not a problem here but seems different from the 1.2R.  I can test more but was wondering if anyone else was seeing this, or if its expected behavior?

    Great Job to the dev's by the way!



  • GUI issue

    System/Firmware/Updater Settings

    Window offset using Firefox 3.0.1




  • Fixed, please try next snap.



  • System Logs in the GUI seem to have stopped.

    This has happened to me before and they began to work after a reboot.  I will pay attention to what Im doing to possibly cause this.

    I dont get " syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel " after clearing logs when this happens…

    I cant blank out the "dns Server" lines on the general setup page and reproduce this.
    I will have to reinstall from cd later to see if I can duplicate it… I believe it only happens after a fresh install.



  • Scratch that…

    Im not using "dns forwarder"  (while disabled it still seems to load on boot up though)

    Im using DHCP

    I blanked the DNS servers lines on the General Setup page.

    As clients began to renew they were not given a dns server.

    Rebooted about an hour or a little more ago.

    Generally I assign my clients a static address via DHCP.  These two that were affected were not set up for this yet.



  • System Logs in the GUI seem to have stopped.

    Just noticed this again plus cpu just held at 100%

    Reboot and back to normal.



  • run top from command prompt and report back the top offenders



  • You mean if it goes to 100% again?

    Mine normally runs at 1-3% normally…

    This is RRD Graph from a few minutes ago.




  • @chpalmer:

    It shows it's going through that part whether or not it's enabled, it doesn't start it if it isn't enabled.

    This is different from 1.2 release?  I believe this is expected behavior, if you don't enable the DNS forwarder and don't configure your own DNS servers, clients don't get DNS servers assigned. If you want them to use your ISP's DNS servers I would recommend turning on the DNS forwarder. No reason not to, it's silly to not run a caching DNS server on your network when it's readily available. Why add Internet DNS resolution delay when you don't have to?



  • @chpalmer:

    You mean if it goes to 100% again?

    yes



  • I am going from memory on the 1.2release Ive been running I admit. It worked so well I havent had to really touch anything.

    This option

    "Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN
    If this option is set, pfSense will use DNS servers assigned by a DHCP/PPP server on WAN for its own purposes (including the DNS forwarder). They will not be assigned to DHCP and PPTP VPN clients, though."

    agrees with what you posted.  Been some long days for me so I missed it during my setups…  I dont remember having to enter DNS on the General Setup page before but may have... Sorry to stir things up about it but I figured if it was not working as intended you would want to know...

    GUI system logs still seems to stop updating intermittently.  Reboot to get it to restart.

    When this has happened I no longer see "syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel" on the system tab when I click "Clear Log".



  • @chpalmer:

    Definitely, you're not "stirring up anything".

    I'm pretty sure this is how it's always worked, and I did verify a few things related to this but not this exactly. Will check into it when I have a chance.



  • I have a 1.2-RC3 box, I wanna get that up to date. Can I just upgrade it from the web UI? In the past I've had bad experiences with upgrading, well can any one suggest anyway?

    Is 1.2-RC3 config file usable with 1.2.1 snapshot?

    Nope.



  • Nope to what? Both? OK, I assume I need to download the ISO and start over. But, do you actually also mean nope that I cannot 'import' my old RC3 config to this one?

    (oh, and if you don't mind saying, is 1.2.1 final gonna be released soon? I saw the known issues page and remaining is now none. I was actually planning on using the latest snapshot but I might wait for the very final to be released)



  • You should be able to upgrade 1.2-RC versions with no problem to 1.2.1. The config from older versions is fully compatible with newer versions.



  • Sorry, I misread that somehow and thought I had read 1.3



  • chpalmer,

    Your version is more than 2 weeks old.

    I would recommend you upgrade to the latest since I have seen MANY MANY issue go away over the last 2 weeks.

    Regards,

    Darren

    You gave me a good chuckle this morning!    :D      My last post on this thread is also two weeks old…  ;)
    Thanks though.  :)
