After upgrading the S500 from 8.1.2 to 8.2.2 it booted into 8.2.2 initially.  However, after that, the appliance keeps booting back into 8.1.2


The si_install.sh script only found one SSD to boot from.  The installation requires that both SSD cards are detected and identified.

Errors seen during solera-upgrade.sh and verify-upgrade.sh

Check to make sure both SSD cards are firmly seated on the motherboard.  

The steps are as follows:

  • Remove the top cover of the appliance after disconnecting all cables and power
  • Remove the front plastic airduct according to the diagram printed.
  • The two SSD cards are blue and located on the right side of the chassis
  • Squeeze the two clips on each side of the SSD
  • Remove both SSDs and reseat them firmly.  Use the white guide posts as you reseat the SSDs.
  • Once both SSD are reseated, replace the plastic airduct cover and replace the cover.
  • Reconnect all cables
  • Attempt the upgrade process again
