Upgrade IronPort C360 from 7.6.3-019 to 8.5.6 build 106?

Good day! Tell me, please, is it possible to upgrade c360 immediately to the new version through the GUI, from 7.6.3-019 to 8.5.6?

Is there a recommended order for this upgrade?

Or is it strongly recommended to do this from the command line (CLI)?

It is not clustered.

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to upgrade

You should be able to upgrade your appliance.  Recommendation is always to do it via the CLI, as this generates a better understanding and visual cues as to where you are at in the download and install process during the upgrade.  But - you can do it via the GUI as well.  In the end, it is the administrator's choice.

See the following TechNote, which may aide, answer questions:

Thank you for the answer.

Thank you for the answer.

Сould you tell me whether such a sharp transition between versions safely? May it make sense to first upgrade to any intermediate version?

You can upgrade to release 8.5.6-106 from the following versions: • 7.6.3-019

Given that "not work" could

Given that "not work" could cover a multitude of sins, yes.

If your ESA is important to you then you already have a plan if it suffers unexpected physical failure. That plan needs to be checked to ensure that if something goes wrong, you have an acceptable path to recovery. An out-of-hours change window may be popular with your recipients but isn't much good if you have no dealer support until the next working day.

I've been through a number of upgrades with lower-series models and they've never gone disastrously wrong. However, for a major upgrade don't depend on a simple config restoration to get you out of trouble as some upgrades are one-way trips. Your config backup may be valid but it won't necessarily restore to a half or completely upgraded machine.

More practically, read all of the intervening release notes looking for minor changes to functionality as these can catch you out. In doing so, look for useful tips such as "this can be tight for disk space so empty out your quarantines".

Finally, i updated

Finally, i updated successfully our C360. Thanks to all.

My plan:

1. In GUI save the configuration file

2. Connect using putty to ironport

3. Test connections to the following dynamic servers (hardware appliance):

  • telnet update-manifests.ironport.com:443
  • telnet updates.ironport.com:80
  • telnet downloads.ironport.com:80  

4. Disable reporting (diagnostic > reporting > disable)

5. I did not suspend the listeners, because we have only one ESA

6. Enter upgrade

7. On the questions i used the default answers.

8. Enable reporting (diagnostic > reporting > enable)

I updated to 8.5.6-106, and then to 8.5.7-043 (version for maintenance).

C360 is fully updated and antivirus is updating now.

Tell me, please, what to do with a hung session on re-initialization of the system reports?

Can I close this session?

May be, will it take some time to report worked after the updates?
