Cause:

 

 

XMS version 6.2.2.-3 introduced support for dual IPv4 and IPv6 which could cause management network issues. During the XMS-Recovery phase of the XMS upgrade on a Physical XMS, a network reset is issued and the network reset takes an extended period of time which may result in a failure of the XMS Recovery (including a dry-run) process from the managed clusters, leaving the XMS unable to manage said clusters and/or failure on XMCLI login.           
          * There may not be any evidence of actual issues within any of the User Accounts
   
   
     
                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

If you encounter this issue, please contact a member of XtremIO Global Technical Support to verify the issue. If it matches this issue and an XMS-Recovery (or dry-run) is failing, then you may need to escalate to XtremIO Engineering to run a workaround to mitigate this issue.     
     
      A permanent fix will be included in a future XMS version.
