Rollback to 2.1.5



  • Upgraded to 2.2.2 amd64.  Having a bunch of IPsec issues.  Long and short of it, decided to rollback to 2.1.5.  In the UI went to "Restore Full Backup", selected the full backup that was made before upgrading, UNchecked "do not restore config.xml" and clicked on "Restore".

    I get a top red banner that reads: The firewall is currently restoring pfSense-full-backup-20150423-2020.tgz

    But then nothing else happens.  I'm watching the console and there isn't any activity.  I'm watching the UI and nothing has changed.  Is it doing anything?

    thanks.

    It takes quite some time depending on HW, does not show any progress and IIRC does not even reboot when done. Use ps axw in console to see if it's (still) unpacking the tarball or not.



  • thx.  After a manual reboot it was rolled back successfully.



  • Something must have changed; It just rolled back 2.2.3 to 2.2.1: it did automatically reboot.
