Upgrade to Fireware v12.6.2
Important information about the upgrade process:
lYou can use WatchGuard Cloud, Fireware Web UI,or Policy Manager to upgrade your Firebox.
lWe strongly recommend that you save a local copy of your Firebox configuration and create a Firebox
backup image before you upgrade.
lIf you use WatchGuard System Manager (WSM), make sure your WSM version is equal to or higher
than the version of Fireware OS installed on your Firebox and the version of WSM installed on your
Management Server. Also, make sure to upgrade WSM before you upgrade the version of Fireware OS
on your Firebox.
Back Up Your WatchGuard Servers
It is not usually necessary to uninstall your previous server or client software when you upgrade to WSM v12.x.
You can install the v12.x server and client software on top of your existing installation to upgrade your
WatchGuard software components. We do, however, strongly recommend that you back up your WatchGuard
Servers (for example, your WatchGuard Management Server) to a safe location before you upgrade. You will
need these backup files if you ever want to downgrade.
For instructions on how to back up your Management Server configuration, see Fireware Help.

If you like to make updates to your Firebox configuration from a saved configuration file, make

This is to make sure that you do not overwrite any configuration changes that were made as
part of the upgrade.
