It is so easy to upgrade Ironport Security Management Appliance (SMA), both virtual and physical 🙂 Here’s how.
Login to Ironport SMA via Console.
Make sure the SMA has internet connection. You can use ping test, or make sure the firewall isn’t blocking the SMA’s Internet access.
Type command: upgrade then choose downloadinstall.
Choose the version you want to upgrade.
Follow the instructions and agree to reboot.
The appliance will reboot itself and after several minutes will be up again.
See, it’s easy right? 😉
