Learn how to upgrade or downgrade the Symantec ProxySG or Symantec Advanced Secure Gateway (ASG) using the Command Line Interface (CLI) through Secure Shell (SSh) or serial console.
For instructions for upgrading through the Graphical User Interface (GUI), please see Upgrade ProxySG or Advanced Secure Gateway via the GUI.
ProxySG or ASG requirements for CLI upgrade:
Connect to the command line (with SSh or a serial console) and run these commands:
# conf t
# (config) upgrade-path "http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/path/to/file.bcsi"
# (config) exit
# load upgrade
# restart upgrade
The use of HTTPS for the download URL will require ProxySG or ASG to know the certificate of that server. Specify the IP or URL that would be appropriate for the CN of the Certificate used. If the certificate has the IP address as the CN, then the URL must contain the IP address, or, if the certificate has the hostname as CN, then specify the hostname in the URL. For HTTP this does not matter. ProxySG and ASG already have the appropriate Certificates to Validate the URL link for the Symantec site.
