Upgrade Web Gateway 8 to 9

Jump to solution

We are looking to upgrade Web Gateway 8.2.7 to Web Gateway 9.1.3 as we are looking to evaluate some McAfee Mobile Cloud Security functionality in the near future

Are there any 'gotchas' to be aware of or is it a pretty simple upgrade coming from v8?  Also can we jump straight to 9.1 or does it have to be 8.2.7 > 9.0 > 9.1?

Hi,

Hope you are doing well.

 

It is an simple upgrade process. You should be directly able to upgrade from version 8.2.7 to version 9.1.3

 

On of the thing in 9.1 version is below:-

Transparent Bridge mode removed


Web Gateway can presently not be run as a proxy in Transparent Bridge mode. This restriction is due to a change in the product architecture.

 

I suggest to also go through release notes to know more about this version.

Thank you, the upgrade went very smoothly in fact I think I was done and dusted on both our virtual appliances within a 15 minute window 🙂

So now we have v9 up and running is there an idiots guide on how to get a mobile device talking with MWG? (We have SaaS in place syncing our on premise policy to the cloud so that is fine), just need a bit of guidance in SSL certificates etc.
