It seems like it's "soon" / "any day now" -- just wondering if there's a more accurate ETA on when the new MR is available.

We should know by tomorrow if final bug testing is completed.  The Release Notes are also in final review.
I might get the green light to post ZD 9.12.2 on Monday (yes, I know it's a US holiday).

Is this still on track for Monday? Been seeing the "associated but no IP traffic" behavior almost daily on my R710, and it'd be great to be able to see if this resolves it.

Yes, I have a script monitoring the site and made my post a few minutes after the script fired ;-)

Michael, any comments about John D's issue before I do a remote upgrade.

Thank you Michael.  So when is the next scheduled release support smart mesh on the R710?  The logical next question, right? :-)

Initial impressions: The update was a bit rocky. About an hour after a successful upgrade, my ZD1200 became partially unresponsive (was not responding to WebUI, though it was responding to the APs/APMgr, partly responding to SSH but hangs after attempting to log in).... There was a blinking red light on the unit. Rebooted, and that problem seems to have gone away.


It does appear to fix my connectivity loss on R710 after prolonged connectivity / standby. I've not had to toggle wifi on any of my desktops and usually by now I would. Crossing my fingers that this is resolved :)

I can certainly do that for the benefit of others. If I capture a ZD debug log now, would it contain details about the lockup yesterday before the hard reset?

Yes, there may still be details in the logs to show if the blinking red light was a reboot and hopefully, for what reason.

9.12 MR2 certainly has something odd going on. I did not have John's experience because I have 2 zd 3k's in redundancy mode. The APs connected to the redundant ZD with the old software. I had to remotely restart the ZD's to complete the upgrade.

That's interesting Alan,
If you have your two ZDs in SR mode, defined each as peer to the other, did you also enable a common Management Interface?
Performing your firmware upgrade thru the Management Interface browser session, should upgrade both ZDs in turn, and gracefully
migrate and upgrade your APs between them.
On your Configure/Access Points page, AP Policies, have you entered both ZD real IPs under Limited ZD Discovery?
This also helps with the graceful move when ZDs pairs are upgraded (or should you have inter-network issues).
This combined with the SR peers from Configure/System, are the recommended SR settings.

Yes, they have a common management interface.  I agree both should have upgraded together.  First time I have ever seen this behavior and have performed at least half a dozen updates since installing the ZD 3k's.  I pulled a debug file and will send to my SE.  And yes to the Public IPs being in the Limited ZD Discovery.

And yes, both IPs are listed under ZD Discovery.
