Cisco Bug: CSCvt44854 - Leaf stuck in 'downloading-boot-script' due to bootscript files missing from APIC
Oct 03, 2020
- Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)
Known Affected Releases
4.0(3d) 4.1(1i) 4.1(2g) 4.2(1j)
Symptom: - Leaf or spine switch is stuck in 'downloading-boot-script' status. The node never fully registers and does not become active in the fabric. - You can check the status by running 'cat /mit/sys/summary | grep state' on the CLI of the spine or leaf: If the state is set to 'downloading-boot-script' for a long period of time (> 5 minutes), you may be running into this issue. - Checking policy element logs on the spine or leaf switch will confirm if the bootscript file cannot be found on the Cisco APIC: 1. Change directory to /var/log/dme/log. 2. Grep all svc_ifc_policyelem.log files for "downloadUrl - failed, error=HTTP response code said error". If you see this error message, check to make sure all Cisco APICs have the node bootscript files located in /firmware/fwrepos/fwrepo/boot. Conditions: Not known at this time.
