    M8000XC

    danf65

      Does anyone have M8000XC sensors?

       

      Has anyone upgraded their M8000XC sensors to 8.3.3.27 and if so has there been any problems?

       

      I've had 6 of these for 5 years and we have never had a stable MR upgrade,  alot of network outages, intermittent connectivity,  sibytes errors...

          Hi Dan,

           

          I haven't upgraded any M-Series to 8.3.3.27 yet, I moved to the 8.3.3.25 release when it came out, but it was retracted a couple of weeks later, so I'll wait until this one is out 4 - 6 weeks with out major issues before upgrading to .27.

           

          There is an issue with upgrading from some previous versions to 8.3.3.27, review this before you upgrade.

          The 8.3.3.27 M-Series release notes state that they have fixed a few of the issues with sensors going to bad health, auto-recovering and rebooting, but the known issues list still has an issue that cause them to auto recover "In rare scenarios".

          We have had to stop running some of our M-series sensors in in-line mode for the same reasons you list above, they kept causing network outages and making us very unpopular.

            I do not have M-8000XC in my environment, however, with any upgrade, it is best to test this in a non production environment as well as weigh the risks vs the rewards.

             

            My recommendation, if you are worried about this having issues, wait a few weeks and let others test it for you. Then contact support and ask them if anyone has reported issues with 8.3.3.27.
