Did you get this sorted, I too have the 210 with SSL VPN users and still on V17.
Hi everyone, looking for some advice or maybe just encouragement. Currently running a XG 210 with the latest MR 17 version still. I have been very reluctant to click that update button to version v18 as I am afraid of loss of use, with this being our main production firewall. When I purchased this firewall for the company, since I had solely been the person who researched and recommended the product. I decided (out of my own pocket) to also purchase a XG105 for home so I could roll out updates at home first, deem them stable then push to the production company XG210. But my fail-safe method quickly came with its own disappointment when my XG105 is no longer supported with V18, almost made me have the company reinvest in a Cisco NSFW because I was so mad. Anyway I'm concerned still moving this unit to v18 with the way things currently are, some staff are remote and just our sole source or protection and services. How has the transition gone for most moving form 17 to 18. Anything I need to consider or pretest prior to getting the courage to upgrade.
did this update work fine with HA
in past i install V18 and try to make HA and it's failed until downgrade to v17 and it's work without any problem
if i install it the HA will be stay working or it will disconnect ?
After upgrading to SFOS 18.0.3 MR-3 our reject or drop rules stopped working for blocking WAN traffic. If you have migrated to 18.0.3 MR-3 check if your reject/drop rules are still working - just as a precaution.
I have recently updated to this firmware SF 18.0 MR3 (126.96.36.1997) [Mindoro] and our firewall experience a restart/reboot device for every 10 mins. New firmware is no good.
