    Q: What does the Maintenance access required to proceed to License Agreement Error Message on BSC mean?

     

    A:If you are upgrading to version 6.X and are currently running version 5.2 or prior, you must upgrade to 5.3.2.6 first. If you attempt to upgrade directly to 6.X from 5.2 or prior you may receive the following error when accessing the web based administration console after the upgrade:

     

    "Maintenance access required to proceed to License Agreement".

     

    To recover from this error you will need to connect to the serial console port using a 9 pin null modem serial cable and a terminal emulation program (9600, 8, none, 1, none). The serial console password is wg1000s. Choose the option for switch followed by a reboot to switch back to the partition running 5.2 or prior. Then upgrade to 5.3.2.6 before upgrading to 6.X.
