FortiOS 5.4.2 release date

Hi to everyone,

we are plan to update our FortiGate 500D in HA Cluster to 5.4, have you a release date for 5.4.2?

We are waiting for this release from May 2016 for a bug fix on CLI.

 

 

Thanks

@Selective and @Andy23,

 

Ouch!  I hope you've opened support tickets with TAC about this.

Sorry, no, this was on my lab equipment, no valid contract.

And I´m not upgrading to 5.4.2 on any production unit yet. 7 pages with known issues, I wonder how many unknown there is...

 

Upgraded from 5.4.2 beta 1

I hope upgrading from 5.4.1 will go more smoothly!  I've read through those known issues and think most won't bite me, though many, like "NP6 may have issue with fragment packets," are too general to know for sure.

 

@Andy23, what version were you upgrading from?

After upgrading my fortigate stopped sending alert emails because the password was wrong :\

More 5.4.2 FortiGate/FortiWiFi firmwares have been added to the download page.  It now includes:

[ul]
  • 30D Rugged - different build 5759
  • 35D Rugged (new?) - different build 5759
  • 30E_MI - different build 5764
  • 30E_MN - different build 5764
  • 52E - build 5762

  • 100E (new) - build 5769
  • 101E (new) - build 5769
  • 200E (new) - build 5758
  • 201E (new) - build 5758
  • 2000E - build 5760
  • 2500E - build 5760
  • 3800D - build 5765[/ul]

     

    That's 8 separate builds more than the "normal" build 1100 -- not an easy task to manage.  Kudos to the developers.

     

    For any of you who are upgrading, it would be helpful (to me at least!) if you could post:

     

      1. What version you were upgrading from

      2. If you rebooted the device shortly before upgrading, upgraded under heavy load, etc.

      3. If it went smoothly or not, and if not, what went wrong

     

    Thanks in advance for helping us avoid any pitfalls!

    @julien, 

    Did you mean "same problems" meaning you had the same problems with 5.4.1?

    Or are these problems new after the update to 5.4.2?

    Yes, i had the same problems when i was in 5.4.1
