Modify settings for firmware versions

We can use the console to add new firmware versions to the DataPower appliance manager, or to delete existing firmware versions. We can also use the console to view the settings for the firmware versions that are on the DataPower appliance manager.

When you add a new firmware version to the DataPower appliance manager, you are not creating a new version. You are actually uploading a file containing an existing firmware version, from either a remote or local file system, to the DataPower appliance manager. If we need to create a new firmware version, use the DataPower WebGUI. To access the DataPower WebGUI, in the console, click Servers > DataPower > Appliance, and then click Launch.

To use the console to view the settings for the current firmware version or to add or delete a firmware version, perform one or more of the following actions.

  1. To view the settings for the firmware versions on the DataPower appliance manager, click Servers > DataPower > Firmware.

  2. To add a new firmware version to the DataPower appliance manager, click New After you select the file to upload, click Submit.

  3. To delete firmware versions from the DataPower appliance manager, select the versions to delete, and then click Delete.

  4. To add a comment about a firmware version that is on the DataPower appliance manager, click the name of that firmware version and add the comment in the Comment field.

    After you enter the comment, click Apply, and then click Submit.
