Configuration updated but not activated status goes with this.
Issue after updating to hive manager 6.1r3 and trying to update devices to latest image versions.

When you are doing a configuration update what you are doing is pushing from the HiveManager or HiveManager Online commands to the access point that tell it how to operate.  When you get a "Some CLIs failed" warning it means that at least one of those commands did not run correctly on the access point(s).  In the HiveManager Monitor -> All Devices screen you will see that at least one of the access points will have a red icon in the Audit column to the left of the access point's name.  If you click on the red icon in the Audit column a window will open advising when command(s) failed to run on the access point.

I've seen this error a lot more frequently lately.  I've even done something as simple as issuing a reboot from the GUI and it seems to reboot it, but the status of the update says "Some CLIs failed". 

It's two lines of code, reboot, yes... :-) 

I've also seen it when pushing deltas too, but I have yet to understand why they are failing.

I have just rebboted three AP's in a area experiancing problems. (They had not been rebooted in 110 days.) The config had been pushed to the AP's prior to the reboot, so the audit shows as gree - and everything was matched.

Following the rebot though the Device Update Results show a warning, with the message "Some CLIs failed."

The devices tab is showing the configuration Audit with a green tick, and highlighting this it shows as Matched.

We sre still running 6.1r3, but due to upgrade to 6.1r6 - and all AP330's.
