The v8.0.x TRITON APX upgrade software ensures that your system has sufficient capacity and a compatible operating system.
Always use the product upgrade guide to ensure that all steps of the upgrade procedure are completed.
Always begin by backing up your system. Then locate the server that runs Policy Broker and Policy Database and upgrade that server (or appliance) first. The Setup program detects older components installed on the current machine and updates them.
Software: On the Downloads page, download the TRITON Setup program to perform software upgrades.
V-Series appliances: Older V10000 G2 and V5000 G2 appliances, known as revision 1 (or R1) appliances, are not supported with version 8.0.0 and higher. See V-Series appliances supported with version 8.x.
For detailed V-Series upgrade instructions, see the V-Series Upgrade Guide.
NEW: Upgrading each
V-Series appliance to 8.0.x from 7.7.x requires these steps:
HOTFIX 90: From v7.7.x, you need to patch up to v7.8.1 and then v8.0.x, in sequence. V7.8.1 moves the modules to 64-bit, and thus requires a large patch. To prepare the V-Series to receive the large patch file: In the appliance manager, download and install appliance Hotfix 90 for 7.7.0 or 7.7.3 (your current version). Hotfix 90 is mandatory; installing it prepares the appliance to receive a large patch file.
HOTFIX 91: In the appliance manager, consider whether your site also needs Hotfix 91. Some sites keep a very large set of backups and snapshots on each appliance. If your site works this way, then Hotifx 91 (optional) can be used to remove very old backups and ensure that the 64-bit v7.8.1 modules will have adequate space as they are unpacked. At your option, download and install appliance Hotfix 91 for 7.7.0 or 7.7.3 (your current version).
PATCH to 7.8.1: With Hotfix 90 installed and (optionally) Hotfix 91 installed, you are ready to download the appliance patch for 7.8.1. This is also done through the appliance manager.
Install version 7.8.1.
PATCH to 8.0.x: After v7.8.1 is installed, download and then install the v8.0.x patch. This is also done through the appliance manager.
