Anyone with a HA 4050 Cluster, can you please tell me the pros/cons of code 5.0.3 and 5.0.6? I am looking to upgrade my HA pair and have noticed CPU imbalance issues, high management plane issues with 5.0.1 on my 500, 2050's. I want to upgrade but am worried the CPU issues are not addressed/corrected with 5.0.3 and/or 5.0.6 when upgrading a 4050 cluster. Please give me your opinion.
5.0.3 definitely had a lot of log indexing issues that usually cause restarts of MGT server as well as a few other userid issues which also caused the MGT CPU to spike.
But as far as the log indexing issue goes that can cause high CPU issues, that will be fixed in 5.0.7.
5.0.6 although has a few fixes with respect to high CPU issues, waiting for 5.0.7 ( which should be out anytime in the next 12-13 days) will not be a bad option at all.
Just FYI we have a huge dataplane restart bug in 5.0.6 we're currently dealing with (TAC is involved,etc). We had to roll back to 5.0.5 because of it (and the dataplane restarts disappear after the rollback). Luckily this PA4020 is in tap mode only, so it essentially just operates as a glorified IDS right now.
