 We are pleased and proud to announce that HiveOS 6.5r6is now (effective 7 February 2017) available for HiveManager Classic On-Premisesand HiveManager Classic Online (HMOL) customers.  HiveManager6.8r7a for on-premises customers is being released at the same time.HiveManager Classic customers should upgrade to version 6.8r7a of the management platform, first, before upgrading their HiveOS devices. HiveManager NG support for this version of HiveOS will come with HiveManager NG version 11.18.x.y in the latter half of February 2017.

 

HiveOS 6.5r6 images are available for AP110, AP120,AP121, AP130, AP141, AP170, AP230, AP320, AP330, AP340, AP350, AP370, AP390,SR2024P, SR2124P, SR2148P, VPN Gateway Appliance, and VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance. 

 

This is Aerohive’s long-lived stable release branch of HiveOS, sometimes referred to in the industry as a “golden”release or branch of software.  In this release, we’ve fixed stability, performance and customer issues.  Note that we intentionally do not introduce new features into the ‘golden’ release to bolster stability of the software.

 

For customers who have been waiting for this release to get certain specific HiveOS bug-fixes, on-demand upgrades are available now for HMOL customers, using their normal process of contacting Technical Support. HiveManager Classic On-Premises customers can retrieve HiveManager version 6.8r7a from the Aerohive support portal. Self-upgrades, aka, “flying the bee”, will be enabled in a few weeks.

 

For details about the changes in these two releases, please consult their respective release notes. The release notes for these are at the following URLs:

CFD-1790 Improvements were made to avoid false radar detection by the AP230.  :)

Mike, I don't see in the release notes for HiveOS 6.5r6 that it resolves the issue with failed configuration pushes to AP121s. I'm assuming it is in there though? I guess I'll find out this weekend after I upgrade HM.

Hi Mike, Do you know where I can find information regarding CFD-2003 and what was address in 6.5r6? Been tracking VPN-VA ospf behavior improvement when new subnet is detected. On 6.5r4, OSPFd are restarted every time new subnet is detected.

Joel,
It appears that bug CFD-2003 was fixed and verified in HiveOS 6.5r6 to address a situation where our IP connection tracking table was too small, and had inappropriate values for the inactivity timers for the entries in this table. From the details in the bug it doesn't look like that situation caused the OSPF process to restart, it just couldn't add new routes. I don't think that fix is for the problem you are experiencing.

HiveOS 6.5r7 will be released in about two weeks. This of course has all the fixes from 6.5r6 plus some new ones. I just briefly scanned the draft release notes and didn't see anything that leaped out to me as specifically addressing your issue, but nevertheless I still recommend you upgrade to that version when it becomes available to you (because sometimes fixing one thing solves other problems we weren't aware of). If for no other reason, when/if you open a support case with my Tech Support folks they will be working on the version the engineers are freshly familiar with.
