Upgrading via Shell doc error
I have a remote site that is really difficult to upgrade (slow internet…) so I am doing that by first fetching the firmware upgrade file onto the CF card as per this doc. Then once I get it there and confirm it is OK, I can do the upgrade.
The doc says:
fetch -o /root/firmware.tgz http://example.com/image.tgz
Good - and I can find the right file at https://updates.pfsense.org/_updaters/latest-nanobsd-2g.img.gz
The example could mention "https:"
Then it says:
/etc/rc.firmware pfSenseupgrade /tmp/firmware.tgz
The 2nd parameter should be /root/firmware.tgz
And for nanoBSD the firmware upgrade command is:
/etc/rc.firmware pfSenseNanoBSDupgrade /tmp/firmware.tgz
I went ahead and fixed it , though using option 13 from the console menu is preferable to using those old instructions
Thanks, the instructions are good now, specially the nanoBSD extra bit.
Agree, better to use the menu option 13.
