Upgrading a FortiSIEM Single Node Deployment

These instructions cover the upgrade process for FortiSIEM Enterprise deployment with a single Supervisor. 

  1. Download the image from the Fortinet Support website https://support.fortinet.com. See "Downloading FortiSIEM Products" for more information on downloading products from the support website.
  2. Unzip the zip file to get the tar file.
  3. Copy the .tar file to the Supervisor:
    1. Copy the va-5.3.1.1668.tar file, using SCP (for example), from your system to the Supervisor.
    2. Make sure this file is in a directory named 5.3.1.1668.
  4. Using SSH, log in to the FortiSIEM virtual appliance as the root user. To avoid issues with SSH connection timeouts, disconnects etc., run the upgrade in screen using the following command:

    screen -S upgrade

    To connect the screen after failure:

    run screen –r

  5. Log in as root to FortiSIEM Supervisor via SSH and run these commands:

    # mkdir /root/5.3.1.1668

    # mv va-5.3.1.1668.tar /root/5.3.1.1668/

  6. Run the phdownloadimage script and point to your directory:

    # cd /pbin

    # ./phdownloadimage file:///root/5.3.1.1668

  7. Run the phupgradeimage script to actually upgrade:

    # cd /pbin

    # ./phupgradeimage
