    Getting "connection to sfcbd lost" during updating appliance

    tipsluo Novice

      I am getting "connection to sfcbd lost" during updating appliance. Everytime the error appears at the same point of the update process. After serveral times attempt it will go ahead and complete the whole update. Anything looks good after update. I am not sure what is the cause of this error, would it cause any problem, and how can I do to resolve or recover it if I need to. Please advise.

       

      Thanks.

          I reproduced the issue and noted the times:

          16:39:18: start updating using vamicli update --install latest

          16:39:55: observed that "connection to sfcbd lost" happenned, it started attempting to reconnect.

          16:40:28: looks like it recovered and continued and completed the update.
