CSA Appliance Upgrade

I am currently running CSA Appliance verion 1907 and I see 4.1 just recently came out.  Is there no way to upgrade the appliance without redeploying it all over again.

 

Thanks,

 

Michael

Hey Michael,

 

You should be able to just reboot the CSA Agent Appliance, and when the CSA service restarts, it will update the agent and pull in the new rule sets for the environment that are available.

 

Cheers,

AC,

 

How can I tell if 4.1 is running after the appliance reboot?

Launch a web browser and visit the following URL for your environment:

 

 
It will list the version id of the current version of CSA running.
 
Now one caveat is while this does provide updates to CSA, it does not update the agent host OS itself, no additional updates are applied other than CSA definitions.
 
If you want the updates to the OS, then the only option is to re-deploy the agent entirely.
 
Hope this helps.

Will NetApp ever fix the option to upgrade the appliance without having to re-deploy it from scratch?  It would be nice.

 

Thanks....
