This article provides instructions on how to update a Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series or NextGen Control Center via SSH.
Update via SSH
- Make sure that the /phion0/packages/ directory does not contain any files such as an older minor release or a patch package. The directory should only contain the kl, os, ph, sa, and tgz subdirectories.
- Copy the update package or patch into the /phion0/packages/ directory on your firewall or Control Center. The package path and file name must not contain whitespace characters.
In the Barracuda NextGen Admin SSH client, you can also transfer the file onto the system by changing into the /phion0/packages/ directory and clicking Send File.
- Type phionUpdate.
Wait for the update to finish. Depending on your system hardware, the upgrade can take anywhere from 10 minutes (on a fast system) to 60 minutes (on a flash unit). The Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series will reboot after the upgrade process.
