PFSense 2.3.2 Upgrade to latest version

  • Hi Team.

    I'm assisting a company that has not updated their PFSense appliance for aaaaaages. They are on 2.3.2.

    Beyond the normal change implementation steps. Backups, rollback plannings, are there any known issues or resources or due diligence I should check or be aware of before I kick this off?

    Reading the guides we have posted is the best bet.

    Verify your hardware will work with 2.4.4-p2, we no longer offer support for 32bit OS, nor Nano images.

    When that is done, I would suggest doing an install and restore:

    The fastest path to getting onto current with less issues will be to take a backup right now (Diagnostics -> backup and restore, download XML).

    Downloading the latest/greatest, install, and recover. Depending on hardware this will be under 15 minutes.

    If you go the upgrade route you might be waiting over 30 minutes depending on what's going on.
