We recommend following this checklist when upgrading the firmware:

  • Make sure that you installing the firmware version for you DataPower model that includes the options that you have (Oracle, Tibco, etc.). You can tell from the filename — “lx” is for Linux, etc.
  • Make sure you have enough disk space on the device and on the host (Linux, VMWare).
  • Take the secure backup of the device (“dpbuddy secureBackup”)
  • Take the regular backup of all your domains (‘dpbuddy -domains “.*” -file dp_backups’)
  • Upgrade a development device first and test the functionality of your services before moving to DataPower in other environments.
