If you attempt to perform an update on the FirePOWER services module in your firewall, you may see the following error;
Error Installation Failed: Peer registration in progress. Please retry in a few moments
I found myself in this situation because I’d attempted to register the firewall in the FirePOWER Management Center Appliance, and the process failed, (because the versions were different). So when I attempted to update the firewalls sfr module to match, it then fails¬†because it’s waiting to register with the management center, (Catch 22).
Essentially you need to ‘kill’ the registration then, perform the upgrade and then attempt to add it as a managed device again. You can do this from within the ADSM. Configuration > ASA FirePOWER Configuration > Integration ¬†> Remote Management > Locate the registration and ‘Delete’.
Usually it says its ‘failed’, I’m assuming it’s referring to the peer registration¬†itself, because it does get removed.
You can then attempt to do the upgrade, (which takes ages by the way!)
Note: I’ve also found you need to manually restart the sfr module when its complete.¬†The upgrade takes ages on small firewalls like the 5506-X its a bit quicker¬†on the larger firewalls like the 5515-X, but I would still leave the update running overnight and then restart the module in the morning.
