How to upgrade remotely SRX1400 with high availability clustering mode?

  • Dears,

    Iโ€™m wondering that can i upgrade remotely an SRX1400 running 11.4R6.6 to 11.4R7.5 in high availability clustering mode, (active/passive)

    if yes, please help me with step by step procedures and commands,
    because it will save me 700 miles trip ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you

  • Well,
    It worked fine, just i experienced a 9 minutes outage before gaining connectivity to the boxes.

    anyway thank you for your help ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Hi!

    If I were you, I would be happy to go for such a nice trip ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sure you can do this upgrade remotely and being a minor upgrade (r6 to r7) there should be no problem.

    You have 2 ways.
    If you can afford a downtime, then load the r7 software on both nodes and REBOOT THEM AT THE SAME TIME.
    Itโ€™s that simple. But the network will be gone for ~10 minutes or so!
    (I recommend you to have serial console access, even if youโ€™re remote)

    The second option is to use ISSU to perform an upgrade with no downtime.
    Instructions are in those KB articles:โ€Ž
    and of course expect limitationsโ€Ž

    Good luck!
