Use this page to manage Panorama software updates on the Panorama management server.
Manage Panorama Software Updates
Select Panorama > Software to perform the following tasks.
By default, the Panorama management server saves up to two software updates. To make space for newer updates, the server automatically deletes the oldest update. You can change the number of software images that Panorama saves and manually delete images to free up space. Refer to Install Content and Software Updates for Panorama for important information about version compatibility.
Task Description
Check Now If Panorama has access to the Internet, click Check Now to display the latest update information (see Display Panorama Software Update Information). If Panorama does not have access to the external network, use a browser to visit the Software Update site for update information.
Upload To upload a software image when Panorama does not have access to the Internet, use a browser to visit the Software Update site, locate the desired release and download the software image to a computer that Panorama can access, click Upload in the Panorama > Software page, Browse to the software image, and click OK. When the upload is complete, the Available column displays Uploaded.
Download If Panorama has access to the Internet, click Download in the Action column for the desired release. When the download is complete, the Available column displays Downloaded.
Install Click Install in the Action column to install the software image. When the installation finishes, Panorama logs you out while it reboots. Panorama periodically performs a file system integrity check (FSCK) to prevent corruption of the Panorama system files. This check occurs after eight reboots or at a reboot that occurs 90 days after the last FSCK. A warning appears in the web interface and SSH login screens if an FSCK is in progress and you cannot log in until it completes. The time to complete this process varies by storage system size; for a large system, it can take several hours before you can log back into Panorama. To view progress, set up console access to Panorama.
