Recently Cisco released a new update for its MARS product - 6.1.6(3511). I tried to update my mars with the version, but it failed:
[Error][check_dependency/547]: minimal allowed version(22.214.171.12408.42) > current version(126.96.36.19908.41).
[pnadmin]$ version 6.1.5 (3508) 41
Yes, my MARS had been successfully updated to 6.1.5(3508). And I coudn't find anything new related to version 6.1.5(3508)42 on the cisco's site. What should I do now? Where can I get version 6.1.5(3508)42 to update to 6.1.6? What should I do to perform successful update to 6.1.6?
OK, after a mildly frustrating (but understandable) conversation with TAC where I was essentially told that even though we have a support contract, their support options are limited due to the appliance being EOL. My options were to re-image and reconfigure the appliance, or do an OS restore (which doesnt erase the config) and hope that the upgrade will be allowed after that. I wasn't a huge fan of either option so...
In short; download the latest 188.8.131.5208 .zip from Cisco downloads (which is "x.42"), host it on a local FTP server and then use the 'pnupgrade' command via CLI to push the upgrade. After doing this I was able to do the 6.1.6, 6.1.7 and 6.1.8 upgrades as well, which I opted to do via CLI since the GUI doesn't really give you adequate updates.
