Hello, I have two questions:
Is it safe to upgrade the firmware from SFOS 16.05.3 MR-3 to SFOS 16.05.7 MR7 ? I'm using STAS and I've been told that the MR7 firmware has some issues with those who use STAS.
And I have two XG210 in HA mode (active-passive) I've read here https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123285#How%20to%20upgrade%20the%20firmware%20automatically about the process of updating the firmware but my doubt is: as I have two appliances in HA mode when I update the primary the auxiliary updates at the same time? Or the auxiliary takes place and goes online first so my downtime is minimal?
Hi Rodrigo ,
There will be no downtime the secondary device will initiate an update and when the device is up it would switch the primary and secondary device as a new state. If you are experiencing the issue with your current firmware you may upgrade to the MR 7. Otherwise, it is not necessary to upgrade.
In reply to Aditya Patel:
I've had a bunch of issues with it to be honest. I'm factory defaulting mine tonight.
Yes. it is safe. I had instaled clean MR3 on my device and upgraded to MR7.
Interestingly, now with the MR7 version I have no problems described in this forum.
