Re: Firmware Upgrade Checklist

There is an upgrade path in the release notes documentation.

The best is to do one machine first and if everything is oke do the other.

Re: Firmware Upgrade Checklist

I do not know exactly what you need but here are the steps from the release notes:

Step 1 Save the XML configuration file off the IronPort appliance.
Step 2 If you are using the Safelist/Blocklist feature, export the Safelist/Blocklist database off the IronPort appliance.
Step 3 Suspend all listeners.
Step 4 Wait for the queue to empty.
Step 5 From the System Administration tab, select the System Upgrade page.
Step 6 Click the Available Upgrades button. The page refreshes with a list of available AsyncOS upgrade versions.
Step 7 Click the Begin Upgrade button and your upgrade will begin. Answer the questions as they appear.
Step 8 When the upgrade is complete, click the Reboot Now button to reboot your IronPort appliance.
Step 9 Resume all listeners.

Re: Firmware Upgrade Checklist

Great..

Would you kindly illustratre more on Step:4 .. how can i check in the GUI ?

Finally I checked on internet that the best approuch doing the upgrade is thorugh CLI rather than GUI - since in CLI it gives you the status of the proceeding where as in GUI it doesnt-- what's your recommendation :-)

through CLI the cmd is "upgrade"

Re: Firmware Upgrade Checklist

I think the GUI is also displaying some status info !

On the System Overview page you can see the System status and the number of messages in Work Queue.

Keep in mind that maybe you have to do some more upgrades on one machine (it is not always possible to go direct to the wanted version)
