Server Node to Assigned Services Node Migration

  • Last updated on
With the release of firmware version 8.2.0, you now must transform the old 3-layer architecture to the new 2-layer architecture that was introduced with firmware version 8.0.1.

Otherwise, an update to firmware version 8.2.0 will not be possible.

Before You Begin

  • Make sure you are familiar with the difference between the old 3-layer and the new 2-layer structure. For more information, see Understanding Assigned Services.
  • The firewall/CC must have been upgraded from firmware version 7.x to 8.0.4.
  • On a Control Center, the feature level for clusters must set to 8.0.
  • The configuration tree must display the old 3-layer structure with a virtual server node.
