NetScaler VPX 10.0.69.4 save config issue

If you’re running the latest build of the NetScaler VPX, be aware of the Save config bug.

Issue:

After getting the VPX up and performing some changes,  I was not able to save the config.  After scratching my head a bit, I went to dashboard under the system log and noticed the following :

SAVECONFIG start

Every time I tried to execute “save ns config” the console displayed:

ERROR: Operation already in progress nsnet_recvrpcioctl

The Netscaler seems to still be running but was not able to restart it gracefully, when performing a VM reset, I noticed my config was lost. (ouch!)

Solution:

To resolve this follow these simple steps.

  • Run the initial setup
  • Immediately after the set up, install the correct license on the appliance.
  • Save the running config
  • Reboot

After following the process above, I was able to save the running config every time and reboot the VPX without any issues.
