Why does this keep happening?  Fortinet makes such great hardware, but they have seriously burned some of us with bad firmware releases.  I'm a constant Fortinet advocate, but this kind of crap demonstrates a lack of QC and concern for the customer environment.  These type of issues should definitely be exposed by a good QC system and if the firmware has the potential to wipe a config, for godness sakes it should not be released.  Those of us who are long time Fortinet customers have learned to be wary of new releases and to always reboot the appliance, take a back up, and wait for others to expose the bugs, but it doesn't need to be that way with the right internal controls at Fortinet.  Pick up the slack guys.  You make a great product but you are tripping over your own feet when you release builds like this.

We have a 200B cluster we are scheduling an upgrade for. We currently have the same SSLVPN issue on 5.2.3 and were hoping for a resolution. :(

Did you run into any other specific problems with the 200B's on this?

Hey,

 

hard for me to follow this discussion here. As I really don't see that many major issues with FOS 5.2.4

 

We run at least 100 boxes ranging from 30D to 800C with every major plattform inbetween being used on 5.2.4 for different customers... So every major feature of the Gates is being used - Besides the Virtual WAN or Wan link load balancing features, which we never use!

 

As far as I remember, we only had a few of issues - which I do not classify as major software troubles (like):

- some earlier boxes have memory issues (just because they don'#t have enough memory for 5.2.4) - like 1st gen 80Cs

- SSLVPN Deamon gets stuck and is not recoverable, after 4-8 weeks of uptime on some 200Bs - reboot needed

- wccp enabled policy is being completely ignored after some weeks of uptime - only a reboot fixed this (happened exactly once)

 

And there are some annoying GUI glitches here and there, like getting Data from the wrong VDOM or rarely getting logged out without a reason - but that doesn't happen very often and it also does not have impact on production traffic...

yes, that list is not complete with all bugs..

 

This is the response I got when I asked on the progress of a bug I can not find in the list.

FortiOS v 5.2.5 should be available by end of this month, unless not postponed. The info of the bug is internal.

Really?

Can you give me a hint? I can't figure out where to look for known bugs in the partner portal.
