Just wanting to get some community feedback on appliance upgrades. Recently decided to upgrade from 21.02 to 21.05. I ensured all packages were up to date, and then took a full backup making sure to not exclude anything.
I used the GUI upgrade feature, which took about 10 minutes to complete - eventually advising that the upgrade was successful and that the system required a restart. This is where it went pear shaped.
Upon restart, the device never came back. I consoled in - and was was faced with a
Curser was flashing - system non respondent.
Rebooted again, and same thing happened. Contacted Netgear support who supplied a link to an image file that I was able to use to rebuild the sg from scratch. All back up and running now, I just want to know how I can prevent this from happening in the future. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Thank you all in advance!
