Upgrade Notes for XTMv
For Fireware v11.11 and higher, the XTMv device is a 64-bit virtual machine. You cannot upgrade an XTMv
device from Fireware v11.10.x or lower to Fireware v11.11 or higher. Instead, you must use the OVA file to
deploy a new 64-bit Fireware v11.11.x XTMv VM, and then use Policy Manager to move the existing
configuration from the 32-bit XTMv VM to the 64-bit XTMv VM. For more information about how to move the
configuration, see Fireware Help. For more information about how to deploy a new XTMv VM, see the latest
WatchGuard XTMvSetup Guide available on the product documentation page at
http://www.watchguard.com/wgrd-help/documentation/xtm. When your XTMv instance has been updated to
v11.11 or higher, you can then use the usual upgrade procedure, as detailed below.
WatchGuard updated the certificate used to sign the .ova files with the release of Fireware
v11.11. When you deploy the OVF template, a certificate error may appear in the OVF template
details. This error occurs when the host machine is missing an intermediate certificate from
Symantic (Symantec Class 3 SHA256 Code Signing CA), and the Windows CryptoAPI was
unable to download it. To resolve this error, you can download and install the certificate from
