Fresh install on /SG-4860 - Factory Image?



  • Hi

    I need/want to do a fresh install on my /SG-4860 after a buggy snapshot screwed up my system. Reading the manual it talks about downloading```
    pfSense-netgate-memstick-ADI-2.4.1-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz

    
    While I want to do a clean install, I don't really want to manually redo all my DHCP Static Mappings. Is there any way to export/import just those?
    
    Thanks

    Backup everything pre fresh install.

    After you've configured the interfaces, etc … import the backup, just restore DHCP server, the setting is under the Restore area.

    You'll need to use pfSense-CE-memstick-ADI-2.4.1-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz

    Yes and this is owed to the circumstance that the SG-xxxx units from pfSense or Netgate should be sorted with that
    ADI image nothing more and nothing less. It came pre configured and is matching well to the SG-xxxx units.

    pfSense-netgate-memstick-ADI-2.4.1-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz
    

    from the portal ONLY if I have a subscription. So just want to be 100% clear, the subscription is the "Gold Subscription $99.00 for one year" and not a support subscription?

    You will be able to download it here too, and not only over the subscription based Netgate account!
    Please go here and chose the following: official pfSense download page

    • Version as example 2.4.1
    • ADI image
    • download server

    Please see the attached image to chose the ADI image

    Do a config backup and export the config xml file first
