Email Security Update for Split Mode

This appendix describes how to update your SonicWall Email Security hardware or Virtual Appliance solution in a Split Mode configuration. Note that these procedures stop the background services from running or starting Tomcat only from the Control Center within a Split Mode configuration.

To update the SonicWall Email Security solution:
1
Install Putty, a telnet client downloadable from the internet.
2
Log into the CLI using Putty.
3
Enter the IP address of Email Security device and Port number as 22.
4
Login as snwlcli.
5
Enter the Admin/Password credentials used for when you log in to the WebUI.
6
On the CLI prompt type the following commands:

SNWLCLI>stop appservices

It will take few minutes to stop services and return to the prompt.

SNWLCLI>start tomcat

End users will have no interruption in accessing their Junkbox while there is no other background services running.

7
Login to the Remote Analyzer you want to upgrade.
 
* 
NOTE: SonicWall recommends only upgrading one Remote Analyzer at a time to ensure mail flow through the other Remote Analyzers is not impacted.
8
Navigate to System > Advanced > Miscellaneous Settings > Upload Patch.

9
Choose the file and select the firmware version.
10
Click Apply Patch.
11
Reboot the Remote Analyzer.

NOTE: Before the Remote Analyzer is booted all the way back up before updating any other devices in the configuration.

Repeat the process for any other Remote Analyzers in the configuration.
13
Upgrade and reboot the Control Center.
