Upgrade to Fireware v11.12.1 from Web UI
If your Firebox is running Fireware v11.10 or later, you can upgrade the Fireware OS on your Firebox
automatically from the System > Upgrade OS page. If your Firebox is running v11.9.x or earlier, use these
steps to upgrade:
1. Before you begin, save a local copy of your configuration file.
2. Go to System > Backup Image or use the USB Backup feature to back up your current device image.
3. On your management computer, launch the OS software file you downloaded from the WatchGuard
Software Downloads page.
If you use the Windows-based installer on a computer with a Windows 64-bit operating system, this
installation extracts an upgrade file called [product series]_[product code].sysa-dl to the default
location of C:\Program Files(x86)\Common files\WatchGuard\resources\FirewareXTM\11.12.1\[model]
or [model][product_code].
On a computer with a Windows 32-bit operating system, the path is: C:\Program Files\Common
Files\WatchGuard\resources\Fireware\11.12.1
4. Connect to your Firebox with the Web UI and select System > Upgrade OS.
5. Browse to the location of the [product series]_[product code].sysa-dl from Step 2 and click Upgrade.
If you have already installed Fireware v11.12.1 on your computer, you must run the Fireware v11.12.1 installer
twice (once to remove v11.12.1 software and again to install v11.12.1).
