Firmware Upgrade Path & License for NSA 2600
I'm a jr SysAdmin, and I have to upgrade two NSA 2600 with support expired.
Are there published upgrade paths for the NSA firewalls?
First of all: can I update the firmware with Software and Firmware Updates expired in Nov 2019 ?
Second: should I follow an update path from firmware 184.108.40.206 to the latest 220.127.116.11-97n or can you jump directly to the latest 18.104.22.168 -> 22.214.171.124-97n ? Are Safemode Version and ROM Version related to firmware update?
I looked for this information in the Support Matrix, but I wasn't able to find anything regarding firmware upgrade, just configuration import/exports.
Third: Is the latest installable firmware version related to Software and Firmware Updates license date expiration?
Thank you for the support!

If your support is expired you can still perform firmware upgrades.
I would recommend step-upgrading based on "general releases" and release dates to the subversion you want (e.g. going from 6.2.5.x released 11/2019 to 6.5.3 released 02/2020), then you can go to the latest version.
Again, as long as you can download the release, you can upgrade to it even if your support is expired.1
Thankyou so much, have a nice day!
