MWG Major software update

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Can I update appliance software from 7.2.x to 7.3.x using the GUI only (Configuration-update appliance software)
Or I have to do that through CLI ?! and what are the commands ?!

Hi,

you can find detailed upgrade instructions in the Release Notes for MWG 7.3.2.2 (https://contentsecurity.mcafee.com/fd?file=mwg/mwg7/release-notes/mwg_release_7.3.2.2.0_RN-RELEASE.p...).

You can upgrade from UI and CLI, both should work fine. I'd recommend CLI because here you can see log output of the upgrade procedure without any problems. Log output on UI will sometimes be delayed or suspended completely during the Upgrade because some components have to be stopped for the update.

Before you start the update, make sure you get a configuration backup from your appliance.

On CLI run following commands:

# yum upgrade yum yumconf\*

# yum upgrade

This is a major upgrade and will be done in several steps. Unlike normal updates the appliance will reboot twice during this upgrade procedure.

Cya, Ed
