Release Notes 11
to XTM OS v11.8.x for the first time. If you want to update your WatchGuard AP devices manually, you can
open the WatchGuard AP Software Download page and download the latest AP firmware and manually update
your APdevices. We also provide one previous version of APfirmware on this page for recovery purposes only.
The file names for the latest AP firmware are:
Upgrade from Fireware XTM v11.x to v11.8.x
Before you upgrade from Fireware XTM v11.x to Fireware XTM v11.8.x, download and save the Fireware XTM
OS file that matches the WatchGuard device you want to upgrade. You can use Policy Manager or the Web UI
to complete the upgrade procedure. We strongly recommend that you back up your device configuration and
your WatchGuard Management Server configuration before you upgrade. It is not possible to downgrade
without these backup files.
If you use WatchGuard System Manager (WSM), make sure your WSM version is equal to or higher than the
version of Fireware XTM OS installed on your Firebox or XTM device and the version of WSM installed on your
Management Server. Also, make sure to upgrade WSM before you upgrade the version of XTM OS on your
XTM device.
If you use an XTM 5 Series or 8 Series device, you must upgrade to Fireware XTM v11.7.4
before you can upgrade to Fireware XTM v11.8.x.
We recommend that you reboot your Firebox or XTM device before you upgrade. While this is
not necessary for most higher-model XTM devices, a reboot clears your device memory and
can prevent many problems commonly associated with upgrades in XTM 2 Series, 3 Series,
and some 5 Series devices.
