Should I skip this warnings and reboot srx for upgrade?

May be i should upgrade SRX to any other version?

Hi,

 

You cant upgrade from 11.2 to 12.1X46. You have to first move from 11.2 to 11.4 and the from 11.4 to 12.1X46.

 

From 11.2 you need to move to 11.4 which is an eeol version and then you can move to 12.1X46 which is another eeol release. See "Upgrading and Downgrading among Junos OS Releases" section on the release notes from 12.1X46-D40 version:

 

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/information-products/topic-collections/release-not...

 

Advise: make a backup of your SRX configuration in case something goes wrong during the upgrade.

 

Please mark this post as Resolved if you consider so.

It might be hard to find junos version 11.4 so I believe that you can try the following:

 

1. Make a backup of the configuration. Run the following command and copy the output to a text file.

 

# show | display set | no-more

 

2. Try the upgrade in the following way:

 

> request system software-add no-validate no-copy unlink [junos_image] partition reboot 

 

3. Once the SRX comes up with the new version go ahead and paste the configuration back. You can use the "load set terminal" command for this.

 

Note: if the SRX fails to boot, recover it by following these instructions:

Hi Pelldis,

 

As Andres correctly stated, if you would like to upgrade the device from 11.2 -> 12.1X46, you should upgrade to an intermediate release 11.4. However, it is quite difficult to get the 11.4 version unless you open a case with JTAC where they will have access to Junos archives.

 

Alternatively, you can upgrade the Junos from 11.2 -> 12.1X46D40.2 directly via Bootloader using USB storage as mentioned in the following technical documentation - https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/topic-map/install-software-on-srx.html#id-i...

 

Let me know if you face any difficulty.

Hi Pelldis,

 

Could you please elaborate on the issue which you're facing? Also, may I know why you've moved to 12.1X46-D10 rather than moving directly to 12.1X46-D40.2?

 

Also, did you had a chance to look into my previous suggestion regarding the Bootloader upgrade via USB?



Thanks,
