Juniper SRX 210 Firmware

‎06-28-2016 02:26 PM

I have recently been contracted to manage some Juniper SRX210's, I dont have much Juniper experience mostly Cisco. One thing ive noticed is the Firmware seems to be way out of date. The firmware is 10.4R6.5  on one and 12.1X44-D35.5 on the other. My question is can i just jump up to the latest firmware on both these devices? Also can someone point me in the direction of the best OPI on how to perform this firmware upgrade ?

Hello,

 

Yes, You can directly upgrade to version 12.1X46 from versions 10.4 and 12.1 X44 respectively which is the latest recommended version for SRX 210 as per the below KB.

 

http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB21476&smlogin=true&actp=search 

 

If you are upgrading a standalong SRX then please refer the below KB:-

http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB16652 

 

But if it is a cluster that youa re upgrading then you can go with the upgrade using either of the below processes:-

 

  1. Minimal Downtime Upgrade
  2. ICU
  3. Simultaneous reboot of both nodes.

 

 

  • But please be informed that there are certain limitations whioch you should conside before selecting ICU to be the process of upgrade. The limitations are listed in the below KB article:- 

      http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB17946&actp=search

 

  • Simultaenosu reboot will have a complete downtime attached to it and the process will be same as upgrading a standalone device but in cluster scenario you need to upgrade and reoot both the nodes simultaneously.

You'll be in trouble, because there's not enough free memory present. Especially so, if you have some fancy licenses enabled. I would recommend you to put the new firmware on a USB stick and install it from there. Don't copy it to /tmp.

Please try the below KB link for the same (I have tried it myself and this link works):-

https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB16652&actp=LIST_RECENT

 

If the above link still does not work then it could be becasue of some MW with the KB portal. In the meanwhile please refer the follwoing link for upgrading standalone SRX.
