IDSM-2 - upgrade issue - 5.x to 6.x

Hello All,

I have an issue upgrading the IDSM-2 module I'm playing with.

It is currently running version 5.0(2).

The thing is when I try to upgrade the image to the latest 6.x version using the .bin.gz file, I get the follwing error message :

The filename IPS-IDSM2-K9-sys-1.1-a-6.1-2-E3.bin.gz is not a valid upgrade file type.

Continue with upgrade? []:

There is no image file that is not .bin.gz on the download section of the website. Only recovery images have the .pkg extension.

Does anybody how to troubleshoot this simple(I guess) upgrade issue?

Regards,

Thibault.

Re: IDSM-2 - upgrade issue - 5.x to 6.x

You are trying to "upgrade" using a "System Image" (-sys-) file instead of an Upgrade file.

The upgrade file for the IDSM-2 is the standard upgrade file used across almost all IPS/IDS models:

IPS-K9-6.1-2-E3.pkg

It can be downloaded here:

Thanks for your answer.

Actually I won't be able to test it as I used the recover feature to upgrade to 6.1.
