Downgrade from Dev to Stable

  • We have a pair of SG-8860's that we wanted to test some of the features from the dev stream as part of the panning for a future large scale deployment of Netgate devices.
    Now that I've finished the testing, I'm looking for the best way to return the devices back to the stable branch with a clean build. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • Do a fresh install of 2.4.3 and restore an old config backup, or redo the config by hand if you forgot to make a backup. There is no other way if you want a clean build.

  • I was reasonably sure that was what I needed to do but just wanted confirmation before I flattened it. Thanks Grimson.

    If it were a small update there are ways to force it back but given the scope of the changes between 2.4.3 and 2.4.4, it will indeed require a reinstall and to restore an old backup from before the upgrade.
