QFX Upgrades - Check Host Version | Lindsay Hill
I came across a situation where a software upgrade failed for some members in a Juniper QFX Virtual Chassis. There is a known issue with upgrades with a certain configuration + version combination, but I thought it didn’t apply to me. Turns out that the key was the host OS version, not the Junos VM version. Your host and guest versions can be out of sync with Juniper QFX 5K devices, and this can lead to confusing behavior, especially in a virtual chassis where host OS versions might vary.
