Upgrading hyperscale firewall features to FortiOS 7.0.5

If your FortiGate is currently running FortiOS 6.2.6, 6.2.7, 6.2.9, 6.4.6, or 6.4.8 firmware and is licensed for hyperscale firewall features, you can follow a normal firmware upgrade process to upgrade to FortiOS 7.0.5.

If you are currently operating a FortiGate with NP7 processors without a hyperscale firewall license, you can use the upgrade path to upgrade to FortiOS 7.0.5. Once you have upgraded to 7.0.5 you can activate your hyperscale firewall license and set up your hyperscale firewall configuration.

Note

The firmware upgrade code does not support upgrading NAT64 and NAT46 firewall policies or VIP46 and VIP64 firewall policies to 7.0.5. After upgrading, you should review all NAT64 and NAT46 firewall policies and all VIP64 and VIP46 firewall policies added prior to upgrading.

Note

In FortiOS 7.0.5, you apply hyperscale firewall features by creating normal firewall policies in hyperscale firewall VDOMs. FortiOS 7.0.5 no longer has hyperscale firewall policies in a separate hyperscale firewall policy list, as supported by FortiOS 6.2 and 6.4.

The FortiOS 7.0.5 upgrade process converts FortiOS 6.2 and 6.4 hyperscale firewall policies to normal firewall policies and adds them to the normal policy list in their hyperscale firewall VDOMs. During the conversion process, the policy IDs of the hyperscale firewall policies may be changed when they are converted to normal firewall policies.
