Troubleshooting Software Update

When experiencing slow data transmission rates, or other network issues, it may be possible that a system software update will be aborted due to a web server timeout during the transfer.

In such an event, the Upload New File window will disappear, and the Upgrade System Software window will be displayed again instead.

  • Should this happen repeatedly, you can transfer the update file using a file transfer protocol such as scp, sftp or ftp, if security is not a concern. The update can then be initiated from the Web UI or Command Line.
  • Disk Status: In the event of an aborted update process, under Tools > Upgrade/Backup > Disk Status, check Percent Used: If the number is greater than 70%, free up disk space, before starting another attempt to update the System Software.

Rollback System Software

In the event of a malfunctioning of a newly uploaded System software, it is possible to rollback to the previously installed system software, a copy of which is maintained by default:

  1. Navigate to TOOLS > SYSTEM: Upgrade/Backup.
  2. In the Actions panel on the left, click * Rollback System *. Follow the instructions on the screen.
