Last Updated:

Applies to

StorageGRID Webscale 10.3.x


The overall upgrade process is stalling at the stage of 'Upgrade Grid Nodes' from the GMI (Grid Management Interface):


One storage node is in gray status from the grid topology:


Alarms of 'State Changed' for services like DDS, SSM, LDR are reported with the Trigger Value as Administratively Down.

/var/local/log/gdu-server.log on the admin node shows the whole upgrade process is waiting for one storage node to finish its node-scope upgrade job :

The following errors are seen from /var/log/upgrade.log on the storage node that is shown as gray in the grid topology:
