DescriptionFirmware Name: ExOS 188.8.131.522
Release Date: Aug 31, 2012
Platforms: 2060, 2061, 4060, 4061, 5000, 6010, 6060, 7000, 8060, 10060, Virtual
Required Versions: 5.4, 5.5, 6.0, 6.1, 6.3.0 (or previous 6.3 BETA releases)
- After installing ExOS 6.3, it is not possible to roll back to any ExOS version prior to ExOS 6.0.2. It is strongly recommended to have ExOS 6.0.2 (or newer) installed on your system prior to upgrading to ExOS 6.3 .
- When rebooting into ExOS 6.3 following the installation, it is strongly recommended to use the "Slow Reboot" mode.
- If you are upgrading to ExOS 6.3 from ExOS 6.0 or earlier:
- A database upgrade is performed and monitoring reports may be unavailable for up to 10 minutes.
- When upgrading to ExOS 6.3 from ExOS 5.5 or earlier:
- WAN Memory persistence will be lost due to changes in the underlying storage architecture.
- ARM objects are automatically upgraded to APS objects, however, all historical ARM data is lost. If you would like to keep records of your historical ARM data then it is recommended to generate PDF reports with this data prior to upgrading.
- Virtual Machine disk images will be lost due to changes in the underlying storage architecture. This only affects customers running virtual machines on the Exinda appliance such as Replify Software Client or Windows Server. Please contact Exinda TAC for a manual workaround.
- If you are upgrading to ExOS 6.3 from ExOS 5.3 or earlier:
- This upgrade is not supported. Please upgrade to ExOS 5.4 or newer first.
- Network Management Systems that use the Exinda SNMP MIB will need to be updated to use the new Exinda SNMP MIB after upgrading to ExOS 6.3.
- Upgrading from V5 or V6 (appliances already on V5 or V6):
- On V5 or V6 systems with valid Software Subscription (SS), Hardware Maintenance (HM) or Premium Support (PS), navigate to System | Maintenance | Firmware Update and use one of the following URLs:

Image Size: 318,859,992 bytes (305 MB)
http://updates.exinda.com/exos/exinda-v220.127.116.112.i386.imgThe image can also be downloaded to your desktop and uploaded to the appliance. Downloading and installation may take some time. Ensure that the partition other than your currently booted partition displays the latest ExOS version: "18.104.22.1682 (i386) 2012/08/31" or "22.214.171.1242 (x86_64) 2012/08/31".
Image Size: 280,452,300 bytes (268 MB)
You must reboot the appliance for the image to install. Once the system reboots ensure that the status bar displays the correct ExOS version (126.96.36.1992). If the old ExOS version is displayed it indicates a problem with either the installation of the new version (system will automatically fall back to existing version) or that the new version was not set to "to boot next" prior to rebooting.
