This article provides instructions on how to update a Barracuda NG Firewall or Control Center via SSH.
To update your system via SSH:
- Make sure that the /phion0/packages/ directory does not contain any files such as an older minor release or a patch package. The directory should only contain the kl, os, ph, sa, and tgz subdirectories.
- Copy the update package or patch into the /phion0/packages/ directory on your NG Firewall or Control Center. The package path and file name must not contain whitespace characters.
- In the Barracuda NG Admin SSH client, you can also transfer the file onto the system by changing into the /phion0/packages/ directory and clicking Send File.
- Type phionUpdate.
Wait for the update to finish. Depending on your system hardware, the upgrade can take anywhere from 10 minutes (on a fast system) to 60 minutes (on a flash unit). The Barracuda NG Firewall will reboot after the upgrade process.
