Firmware settings

Use this page to specify firmware settings for a firmware version in the DataPower appliance manager. A firmware version is a firmware image of a specific level used with a specific appliance type, model type, and set of licensed features. To view this console page, click Servers > DataPower > Firmware > firmware_version.


Version

Specifies the numeric version, or level, of the firmware. This field is read-only.


Release date

Specifies the date when the firmware was released by the manufacturer. This field is read-only.


Appliance type

Specifies the type of appliance that the firmware version is used for. Some appliance types include XA35, XS40, and XI50. This field is read-only.


Model type

Numeric value for the appliance model. Some model types include 9001, 9002, and 9003. This field is read-only.


Licensed features

Specifies a comma-separated list of the licensed features that are contained in this firmware. The firmware that is loaded onto an appliance must have a list of licensed features that is compatible with the licensed features of the appliance. This field is read-only.

All of the appliances that are part of a managed set must have the same appliance type, model type and licensed features. Therefore, we cannot use a firmware with a managed set if the firmware includes a list of licensed features that is not compatible with the appliances in the managed set. If we attempt to load firmware that includes a list of licensed features that is not compatible with the licensed features of the appliances in the managed set, the firmware does not load, and an error message is issued.


Comments

Specifies user-defined information about a firmware version.


Managed sets

List of managed sets that use this firmware version. The firmware version must have the same appliance type, model type and licensed features as the appliances that are in the managed set. This field is read-only.
