2.4.4-p3 installer binary image download?



  • Where can I find the old 2.4.4-p3 binaries? The Netgate website download page only provides the latest stable and daily snapshots.

    Want a backup memstick installer for 2.4.4-p3 recovery purposes just in case I have to revert a failed 2.4.5-p1 upgrade.

    Thx.

    If the goal is to get current.. Why not just download the 2.4.5p1 memstick installer.. And if the upgrade fails, just install clean and then restore you config?



  • Theres other reasons to rollback than just a failed upgrade that may only become apparent to the user after upgrading, for example, the recent increased latency issue would be one such reason to need to reinstall a previous version. It sounds like a sensible plan to me.

    That is option 2 if the in-place upgrade has issues. If there are issues or concerns after a fresh 2.4.5p1 install + config restore, then my fallback is a 2.4.5p3 reinstall and config restore.

    My maintenance window is not unlimited and this is not a redundant HA topology. Need a reliable and stable fall-back plan.

    If I had a 2nd ssd to swap-in and not alter/upgrade my 2.4.4p3 build in-place, I’d go straight to “option2”. Unfortunately, that’s not in my immediate budget.

    I would suggest contact support - when I asked for an image, I had link in like 1 minute.. There is zero reason to searching around the archives of the internet.. Just contact them - you do not need a support contract for such a question

    And yeah its good idea to have current image, don't get me wrong... But the time for that is like when you first install it.. Just keep a copy ;) Reason I contact them is wanted factory version of lastest image for my sg4860. And then for the 3100. You use to be able to download them off the portal.. But now you can not get factory version without contacting them for new versions that come out.

    Is this netgate appliance, or you just using the CE version?
