system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

[ Edited ]

Hi, I just upgraded an srx210 to 11.2r3 and after installation I had a solid amber alarm light on. So I did a 'show system alarms' and the output I received was:

 

root@pl-rtr-01> show system alarms

1 alarms currently active

Alarm time Class Description

2011-11-10 16:03:29 EST Minor Autorecovery information needs to be saved

 

I can't find any information on this. I guess I am looking in the wrong places. The only two alarms I could find for system were invalid license and no rescue config. The alarm I got kind of sounds like no recuse config, but I saved mine and the light didn't go off. Any help would be appreciated. Just as a side not, I upgraded the web server to module-mode, and it is definitely much faster. I don't like using it, but when I have to it is not painfully slow anymore. Thanks

Re: system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

This sounds like you don't have a rescue configuration saved.  This is a fallback configuration that can be used in case of problems.

 

To save the current configuration as the rescue configuration use this command.

 

request system configuration rescue save

Re: system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

Thanks spuluka, but that was the first thing I tried, from the CLI first and then from the J-Web interface.  My rescue config saved successfully both times, but the light is still there and the alarm is still there when I do 'show system alarms'.  I can view my rescue config with 'show configuration rescue'.

 

Any other ideas?  Maybe if I reboot it will catch that I have the rescue config?

Re: system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

Interesting, It looks like a new feature.  I see this in the release notes Junos OS 11.2

 

 Autorecovery—This feature is supported on dual-partitioned SRX100, SRX210, SRX220, SRX240, and SRX650 Services Gateways. With this feature, disk partitioning, configuration, and licenses information can be recovered in case of corruption.


This feature provides the following functions:


•    Detect corruptions in disk partitioning during system bootup and attempt to recover partitions automatically
•    Detect corruptions in the Junos OS configuration during system bootup and attempt to recover the configuration automatically
•    Detect corruptions in Junos OS licenses during system bootup and attempt to recover licenses automatically
Table 8 on page 129 lists the supported CLI commands and its description: Table 8: Supported CLI Commands for

 

Autorecovery
request system autorecovery state save    

 

Saves current state of the disk partitioning, configuration, and licenses for autorecovery.


request system autorecovery state clear
Clears all saved autorecovery information.


show system autorecovery state    

Performs checks and shows status of all autorecovered items.

Re: system alarm 'autorecovery information needs to be saved'

Thanks a lot spuluka.  That is spot on.  I did end up rebooting it and the alarm light went off, but this was definitely the issue.

 

*********> show system autorecovery state
Configuration:
  File             Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
  rescue.conf.gz   Saved                   Passed             None
BSD Labels:
  Slice            Recovery Information    Integrity Check    Action / Status
  s1               Saved                   Passed             None
  s2               Saved                   Passed             None
  s3               Saved                   Passed             None
  s4               Saved                   Passed             None

 

I'm not exactly sure when this backup took place.  I didn't use the save version of that command, it was like that when I checked.

 

Thanks again.

Did the autorecovery save command and the Amber Light went off immediately, even without having to reboot the device.
