Response 6.1 upgrade: fails on CONVERT OLD INGRESS FILTERS


Cb Response 6.x and later versions


On startup after upgrade to 6.x in a cluster, it detects schema needs to be updated and runs 'cbupgrade' command but it fails on ingress filter conversion


Console output on startup (of if simply running /usr/share/cb/cbupgrade on master before start)




Error importing legacy filters from file /etc/cb/ingressfilter.conf

This behavior will occur if due to an issue in the file noted above: "Error importing legacy filters from file /etc/cb/ingressfilter.conf".  When previous versions were generally accepting of ingress filter file problems, 6.X will fail on parsing if there are issues in this file


Review the ingress filter file (/etc/cb/ingressfilter.conf in the example above) for format issues (extra commas, missing lines, etc).  If no issue can be found, you may upload the file to CarbonBlack alliance and request assistance via a new support ticket and mention this KB article and the exact error message encountered.

Using the example above:

/usr/share/cb/cbpost /etc/cb/ingressfilter.conf
