Latest DataPower Firmware Upgrade

The latest version of DataPower firmware is 2018.4.1.6 released on June 12 2019. It provides the following fixes, most of them are security-related.

You can upgrade your DataPower gateways directly from DPBuddy using the following commands (this will upgrade multiple devices at once):

 
dpbuddy saveAll -device "device1, device2 ..." 
dpbuddy quiesceDomain -domains ".*" -device "device1, device2 ..." 
dpbuddy firmware -fromUrl "<url for you DataPower model>" -device "device1, device2 ..." 
dpbuddy connect -device "device1, device2 ..." 

Use the following urls in the "firmware" command (images without options):
VMWare: https://ak-delivery04-mul.dhe.ibm.com/sar/CMA/WSA/08b66/0/idg2018416.lts.scrypt4
Linux: https://ak-delivery04-mul.dhe.ibm.com/sar/CMA/WSA/08b67/0/idg_lx2018416.lts.scrypt4

Consult Fix Central to find the exact download link for your firmware options and for your flavor of DataPower.

You may also want to run a command to validate the state of your services and objects after the upgrade:

 
dpbuddy assertState -domains ".*"

Please make sure that you have sufficient disk space before starting the upgrade.
