Looking for the best upgrade path from NSA2600 to NSA2650
Our current firewall is a NSA2600 running 22.214.171.124-23n, We have a newer 2650 running 126.96.36.199-42n. It made sense to me to get our current 2600 up to the same version in order to migrate the settings so we know there are no compatibility problems. The issue I am having is the releases seem to be all over the place, I just want to know the best way to get the 2600 upgraded. Should I jump right to 6.5.0? or just go right to 188.8.131.52?
The other thought I had was should we upgrade them both to 184.108.40.206-83, which seems to be the latest general release, then transfer settings over?
Thoughts and best practices would be appreciated on this situation, thanks!
Go by firmware release dates. If 220.127.116.11 was released after 18.104.22.168, then I'd upgrade your 2650 to a newer version.
Basically get the 2600 to a firmware released a couple releases before your 2650 firmware, then make the jump to a new sub-version on the 2600, then match firmware levels.
Careful when transferring settings, all sorts of things can go wrong.
