NEW KIL entry:
Anyone else experience issues uploading the v19 MR1 firmware on VMWare? Running v19 GA but the 19 MR1 will not upload into the empty slot. The "spinning wheel" on the upload screen starts for a few seconds, then just stops. On another occasion as soon as the upload started it went straight back to the login screen. Tried rebooting the firewall but still the same.
Firewall was originally built from the 19 GA OVA template, and VI-19.0.1_MR-1.VMW-350.sig is what i am trying to upload.
Which browser did you use? Did you try upload&Boot?
Have tried several, Chrome, Safari, Edge - all the same. Yes tried upload and boot but just doesn't work.
Check the /log/applog.log at the time you upload for an indication.
Only thing i'm getting within the upload time period is the following in that log

Ok so spun up another VM with a fresh 19 GA build from the OVA template, and 19 MR1 imported fine. Will flatten my production build later and start from fresh. Hopefully that will sort it. Cheers.
this may happen when you picked the wrong update package. there are XGS and XG versions - built for other hardware.
edit: but you used the virtual machine update package for your VM - should be fine.
All sorted now thanks, must have had some form of corruption. Stood up a new VM, imported config and upgraded. No idea what was wrong - a pain but working.
