Hi, I have just pushed the "Download" button for iView 3 and after 20 seconds i got logged out from the web interface.I was unable to login with my admin credentials and I found out the VA was factory resetted.I could login back with admin/admin credentials and inside there was no previous configuration nor any log.I have lost all my firewall logs...
Any one with this issue?
On my iView VM, I upgraded from version 2 to version 3 beta and then to version 3 without losing any data.
Opening a ticket is a must ( even if you have lost data).
In reply to lferrara:
It seems there was an error during the download of the update and everything got destroyed.
It is incredible to me that a failed download (mind you I just pressed the download, the operation did not completed, I never arrived to the point to install the update) could corrupt the whole configuration and all the data.
My support told me to just re-deploy the VM from scratch but I requested an escalation, this is a major bug.
Not to mention having lost all the logs...
Same here. Upgraded from iView 2 to 3 without any issues, on VMware. My iView was installed using the ISO file (not the premade vm template).
One important thing is: When Sophos iView will start using reliable Device IDs, like Serial Numbers, instead of IPAddress+DeviceType? I mean, multiple uplinks are a common scenario all around and everytime the device reachs the iView with a different address you end up with another device to be registered and you have no way of identifying them as the same device.
- You cannot register multiple IPs on a Device
- You cannot register the same hostname on multiple IPs
- You can multipath rule the UTM to iView but if that uplink goes down you're back on the same spot either way
iView should identify devices with a more reliable UID like Serial Numbers. It's a completely unreliable syslog tool the way it's currently designed.
