Upgrading SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA manually

If you upgraded FortiManager to 7.0.0 before the release of SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA 7.0.0.r1, FortiManager 7.0.0 will be running the latest 6.4 version of SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, which is 6.4.1.r6.

You can manually trigger an upgrade of SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA by using the GUI.

In this scenario, you are starting the upgrade with the following items:

  • FortiManager 7.0.0

Although you can run SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA 6.4.1.r6 with FortiManager 7.0.0 and FortiGates running FortiOS 6.4.x in ADOM version 6.4, it is recommended to use FortiManager 7.0.0 and FortiGates running FortiOS 7.0.0 with SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA 7.0.0.r1.

To upgrade SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA by using the GUI:
  1. If ADOMs are enabled in FortiManager, ensure you are in the root ADOM to access the Maintenance tab in SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA.
  2. In SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, go to Maintenance > Upgrade, and click Check for updates.

    When an update is available, the An update is available message is displayed.

    When SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA is up to date, the following message is displayed, and no upgrade is available:

  3. Click Update Now.

    A confirmation dialog box is displayed.

  4. Click Yes.

    SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA proceeds with the upgrade to 7.0.0.r1.
