Secure Mobile Access 1000 series downgrade capabilities
05/22/2020 4 3506
Firmware versions provide downgrade capabilities. But there are limitations.
Any existing configuration is lost in a firmware downgrade. In addition the configuration from the higher firmware version cannot be imported to the SMA running the earlier firmware version, after the downgrade.
The reason for this capability to downgrade is to accommodate customers who are running supported firmware, but receive either an additional new SMA or an RMA that might contain a newer firmware version than they have approved for use.
