 application revert from version 6.0.0R000 to previous version is performed using EMA under the following conditions EMA to revert the 
Spacevars
0product
application to the previous version taking into account the following prerequisites:

  • The firmware is not reverted back to an earlier version because it is backward compatible with earlier
    Spacevars
    0product
     versions.
  • Any configurations performed after the upgrade will be lost after the Revert. Once the revert completes, the configuration rolls back to the timestamp in the 'Last Used' field.
  • Once a revert is performed to a valid pre-6.0 SBC release, an upgrade to another pre-6.0 release is not supported. Upgrading to any other pre-6.0 releases requires the ConnexIP re-ISO installation. Refer to Re-Installing ConnexIP Operating System for SBC 5000 Series or Re-Installing ConnexIP Operating System for SBC 7000 Series for more information on ConnexIP re-ISO installation.
  • The Revert procedure applies to

     upgrades only (both offline and LSWU); it does not apply to ConnexIP ISO or

    Note

    The Revert Software application simultaneously reverts both the Active (WFDSBC01a) and Standby (WFDSBC01b) server. On continuing with the revert, the upgraded server(s) will reboot and come up with an earlier release. During this process browser session will be lost and need to re-login.


    The Revert Software starts and changes the boot version to earlier version in both the active and standby server. For example, in this case, it is 04.02.03R000 version. You can see the revert status in the Log section.
