Citrix ADC SDX 15000 Bundle Upgrade Fail



Environment:

Citrix ADC SDX 11.1 Build 61.112 (brand new appliance that came with 11.1 out of the box).

Issue:

After uploading Bundle 13.0 Build 36.27 to the SDX, I attempted to upgrade the SDX appliance. According to article https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-hardware-platforms/sdx/supported-versions.html you can go straight from 11.1 to 13.0.

SDX_Bundle_Upgrade_Summary


The upgrade passes the 'Upgrade initialization' phase and after a short period of time, it fails on the 'Management Service upgrade' with the following error:

"Upgrade of Management Service to build-svm-13.0-36.27.tgz failed. Upgrade of Management Service should have rebooted the system but did not reboot even after 5 minutes. Manually reboot the Management Service. Restart Update Software operation. If problem persists contact Support."

SDX_Management_Upgrade_Fail

Run the following:

  • shell
  • /var/log
  • more messagesSDX_Management_Upgrade_Fail_2

"Oct 23 13:30:09 <local0.err> <SDX Hostname> svm_event: 11.247.32.36 10/23/2019:00:30:09 GMT : SNMP TRAP_SENT : 127.0.0.1:BackupFailure:<SDX SVM IP> - Single Bundle Image was not found for SVM version 11.1-61.112
Oct 23 13:30:09 <local0.err><SDX Hostname>svm_event: <SDX SVM IP> 10/23/2019:00:30:09 GMT : EVENT BACKUPFAILED : 127.0.0.1:BackupFailure:11.247.32.36 - Single Bundle Image was not found for SVM version 11.1-61.112"


In the System > Events section it had the following event:

SDX_Management_Upgrade_Fail_3

 

Troubleshooting

  • Logged back into the SDX SVM, and rebooted the Management Service via UI and SSH, attempted another SDX bundle upgrade and got the same error message.
  • Rebooted the whole SDX appliance then attempted the SDX bundle upgrade and the same error again.
  • Attempted to upgrade to Bundle 12.1 Build 54.13, same issue
  • Attempted to upgrade to Bundle 11.1 Build 63.9, failed as the 'platform' version in this build is lower than the version I'm on, even though its currently at Bundle 11.1 Build 61.112
  • Factory reset on SDX2, no customizations done, attempted an upgrade to Bundle 13.0, same issue
  • After the above factory reset, checked out /var/log/messages

Resolution:

Just found out that the new SDX 15xxx ONLY supports v11.1 build 61.112, the version it gets shipped with.

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-hardware-platforms/sdx/hardware-platforms/sdx-15000.html

"Citrix ADC SDX 15000 appliance is supported only on SDX image version 11.1.61.112 (private build)."

I ran into something like this before, and it required upgrading the appliance firmware. Hidden in documents somewhere is an indication what the maximum supported ADC software install is based on the firmware version. You'd think it'd tell you upfront that this is an issue!
