Introduction

This Release Notes covers the new features, enhancements, resolved issues and known issues of FortiDDoS version 6.3.1 build 0322.

Note: Firmware version 6.3.0 was removed from GA download folders because of a service-affecting bug fixed in 6.3.1. To provide information on the new features and bugs fixed in 6.3.0, the 6.3.0 Release Notes is appended to this Release Note.

After upgrading from 6.1.x or 6.2.x to FortiDDoS-F 6.3.1, please check the integrity of the system Service Protection Policies (SPPs) and repair if necessary. See After upgrade for checks to be completed post upgrade.

In early FortiDDoS-F-Series releases, the Round-Robin Databases (RRDs) were created automatically for each SPP whenever the user created a new SPP via the GUI or CLI. However, if the user makes a configuration change to the SPP while the RRD creation was in progress, then the process could be interrupted in the background. This will result in incomplete RRDs with missing information for logging and graphing of traffic and drops.

In later FortiDDoS-F-Series releases, the SPPs and RRDs for all possible SPPs are created during the upgrade process. However, existing incomplete RRDs will not be repaired. Checks of RRDs and SPPs are required if you are upgrading from 6.1.0, 6.1.4 or 6.2.0.
