Firmware version represents a collection of system services and operating system features imaged on to the appliance before it leaves manufacturing. The firmware image cannot be updated by a Fortinet customer. Services within the image are updated by Fortinet or a certified Fortinet Partner in appliance maintenance packages released asnew more robust and secure versions of services become available.
Note that upgrading software versions does not change firmware nor does it automatically require an upgrade to the Persistent Agent. Newer Persistent Agents are not compatible with older software versions unless that capability is specifically highlighted in the corresponding release notes.
