Recently upgraded to 2.2.4 on a 2440 box, trying to revert to test a setting
And not having any luck.
I'm seeing some things happen with openVPN that I dont' recall happening before; I'd like to revert to 2.2.2 to see if I missed them, misconfigured something, or if they're new things.
The Netgate serial image won't install from the firmware download page; after logging into the portal and downloading the file offered in old, it tells me it's the wrong image.
so, I upload a full backup to the box, and realize that it's a file backup, not an image backup, and unlikely to work as a restore source.
Can someone direct me to the image I should use to install 2.2.2 on the pfsense 2440 box before I do the file-based restore of same?
The file which is not wanting to install is called netgate-memstick-serial-2.2.2-RELEASE-amd64-20150424-1057.img.gz
I gave up on this once I took a look inside the memstick image and compared it to the upgrade image. the memstick contains an ISO, the upgrade contains a tar image of a viable filesystem. I had a known working memstick available, so I slicked the box and reinstalled that way, then added back my config file and was on my way.
of course reverting that way doesn't scale, you need local access. I did figure out where to upload a backup to have it recognized in the web ui, but wasn't sure if trying to roll back a release would succeed from that route.
