Upgrade from Fireware XTM v11.x to v11.6
Before you upgrade from Fireware XTM v11.x to Fireware XTM v11.6, download and save the Fireware XTM
OS file that matches the WatchGuard device you want to upgrade. You can find all available software on the
WatchGuard Portal, Articles & Software tab. You can use Policy Manager or the Web UI to complete the
upgrade procedure. We strongly recommend that you back up your device configuration and your WatchGuard
Management Server configuration before you upgrade. It is not possible to downgrade without these backup
files.
Note If you are upgrading to WSM v11.6 from WSM v11.4.x or earlier, it is important to back
up your Log and Report Server data using the procedure described in Knowledge Base
article 6995. This is necessary because the Log and Report Server database structure
changed in WSM v11.5.1. When you upgrade to WSM v11.5.1 or higher for the first
time, the timestamps of existing log and report data will be converted to UTC from the
local time zone. This Knowledge Base article gives you details on this upgrade, and

General Information for WatchGuard Server Software Upgrades
It is not necessary to uninstall your previous v11.x server or client software when you update from v11.0.1 or
higher to WSM v11.6. You can install the v11.6 server and client software on top of your existing installation to
upgrade your WatchGuard software components.
Upgrade your FireCluster to Fireware XTM v11.6
There are two methods to upgrade Fireware XTM OS on your FireCluster. The method you use depends on the
version of Fireware XTM you currently use.
Upgrade a FireCluster from Fireware XTM v11.4.x or v11.5.x
Use these steps to upgrade a FireCluster from Fireware XTM v11.4.x or v11.5.x to Fireware XTM v11.6:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Open the cluster configuration file in Policy Manager
Select File > Upgrade.
Type the configuration passphrase.
Type or select the location of the upgrade file.
To create a backup image, select Yes.
A list of the cluster members appears.
6. Select the check box for each device you want to upgrade.
A message appears when the upgrade for each device is complete.
When the upgrade is complete, each cluster member reboots and rejoins the cluster. If you upgrade both
devices in the cluster at the same time, the devices are upgraded one at a time. This is to make sure there is
not an interruption in network access at the time of the upgrade.
Policy Manager upgrades the backup member first and then waits for it to reboot and rejoin the cluster as a
backup. Then Policy Manager upgrades the master. Note that the master’s role will not change until it reboots
to complete the upgrade process. At that time the backup takes over as the master.
To perform the upgrade from a remote location, make sure the FireCluster interface for management IP address
is configured on the external interface, and that the management IP addresses are public and routable. For
more information, see About the Interface for Management IP Address.

Downgrade Instructions
Upgrade a FireCluster from Fireware XTM v11.3.x
To upgrade a FireCluster from Fireware XTM v11.3.x to Fireware XTM v11.6, you must perform a manual
upgrade. For manual upgrade steps, see the Knowledge Base article Upgrade Fireware XTM OS for a
FireCluster.
Downgrade Instructions
Downgrade from WSM v11.6 to WSM v11.x
If you want to revert from v11.6 to an earlier version of WSM, you must uninstall WSM v11.6. When you
uninstall, choose Yes when the uninstaller asks if you want to delete server configuration and data files. After
the server configuration and data files are deleted, you must restore the data and server configuration files you
backed up before you upgraded to WSM v11.6.
Next, install the same version of WSM that you used before you upgraded to WSM v11.6. The installer should
detect your existing server configuration and try to restart your servers from the Finish dialog box. If you use a
WatchGuard Management Server, use WatchGuard Server Center to restore the backup Management Server
configuration you created before you first upgraded to WSM v11.6. Verify that all WatchGuard servers are
running.
Downgrade from Fireware XTM v11.6 to Fireware XTM v11.x

IP addresses to its clients after a failover occurs. [65493, 67328]
Beginning in Fireware XTM v11.5.1, the backup device in an active/passive FireCluster issues IGMP
"Membership Query" and ICMPv6 "Multicast Listener Query" using the virtual MAC address of the
outgoing interface. The VMAC should only be used by the master device. If the non-master device
generates traffic using VMAC as the source, the switch connected to that interface may observe MAC
address moves from one interface to another frequently. The problem will no longer occur. [66870]
Blocked sites can now be synchronized among cluster members in both active/active and
active/passive FireClusters. [63558, 66077, 65593]
An active/passive FireCluster no longer accepts and forwards packets addressed to the multicast MAC
address of an active/active FireCluster deployed on the same subnet.. {56152]

These are known issues for Fireware XTM v11.6 and all management applications. Where available, we
include a way to work around the issue.
General
l
When you connect a USB drive to an XTM device, the device does not automatically save a single
Support Snapshot to the USB drive. [64499]
Workaround
Use the CLI command “usb diagnostic enable” to enable the device to save a diagnostic support
snapshot to the USB drive. For details about this command, see the Command Line Interface
Reference Guide.
l
l
The "Sysb" version displayed in the Firebox System Manager Status Report will show blank for XTM
models 2 ,5, 8, and 1050 that were manufactured prior to the XTM v11.5.1 release.
ICMP flood protection works differently in 11.5.1 than in earlier versions. In v11.5.1 the XTM device
counts the combined total number of ping requests and replies, rather than just the total number of ping
requests. Since the default threshold for ICMP Flood Attack protection did not increase, the flood
protection could trigger more frequently than it did in earlier releases. [63094]
Workaround
In the Default Packet Handling settings, increase the threshold for Drop ICMP Flood Attack from
the default value of 1000 packets/second to a higher number.

When the level of free memory on your XTM device is lower than 20M, saving your XTM device
configuration to the device can cause network disruption. [64474]
The ETH1 interface on the XTM 830F is a fiber-optic port, so you cannot use the WSM Quick Setup
Wizard from a computer with an Ethernet interface. Use a computer with a Fiber NIC, or connect using a

For XTM 5 Series devices, Interface 0 does not support Auto-MDIX and does not automatically sense
cable polarity.
On XTM 2 Series devices, the load average is always displayed at 1 or higher, even when there is no
load on the device. [63898]
An XTM 2 Series device can take up to 5 minutes to reboot.
When you use the Policy Manager > File > Backup or Restore features, the process can take a long
time but does complete successfully. [35450]
You cannot downgrade an XTM 2 Series device from v11.5.1 to v11.4.1 with the Upgrade OS option in
the Web UI. [63323]

If you use Firebox System Manager to ping across a VPN tunnel, you get a message that reads “No
Buffer Space Available.” This is not a memory problem. You see this message if the VPN tunnel is not
established. Make sure the VPN tunnel is up and try again. [59339]
In Firebox System Manager, if you try to import a certificate, the import fails if the certificate file contains
text above the “----BEGIN CERTIFICATE” section. The certificate file must start with “----BEGIN

You cannot edit the name of a policy, use a custom address in a policy, or use Host Name (DNS lookup)
to add an IP address to a policy.
You may need to reboot your XTM device after you import a third-party web certificate before the
certificate will take effect. [65589]
If you configure a policy in the Web UI with a status of Disabled, then open Policy Manager and make a
change to the same policy, the action assigned to the policy when it denies packets is changed to Send

The CLI performs minimal input validation for many commands.
o
l
l
For the XTM 2050, the output of the CLI command “show interface” does not clearly indicate the
interface number you use in the CLI to configure an interface. The “show interface” CLI command shows
the interface number as the interface label on the front of the device (A0, A2 … A7; B0, B1 … B7; C0,
C1) followed by a dash, and then the consecutive interface number (0 – 17), for all interfaces. [64147]
Workaround
Use the consecutive interface number that appears after the dash as the interface number to
configure the interface. For the B1-9 interfaces, the interface number in the CLI command should be
in the range 8-15. For the C0-1 interfaces, the interface number in the CLI command should be 16-17.

The Web Setup Wizard can fail if your computer is directly connected to an XTM 2 Series device as a
DHCP client when you start the Web Setup Wizard. This can occur because the computer cannot get
an IP address quickly enough after the device reboots during the wizard. [42550]
l
Workaround
1. If your computer is directly connected to the XTM 2 Series device during the Web Setup
Wizard, use a static IP address on your computer.
2. Use a switch or hub between your computer and the XTM 2 Series device when you run the
Web Setup Wizard.

Known Issues and Limitations
l
l
To enable your XTM device to correctly process system-related traffic from your Terminal or Citrix
server, the Terminal Services Agent uses a special user account named Backend-Service. Because of
this, you may need to add policies to allow traffic from this user account through your XTM device. You
can learn more about how Backend-Service operates in the product help system.
For the Authentication Redirect feature to operate correctly, HTTP or HTTPS traffic cannot be allowed
through an outgoing policy based on IP addresses or aliases that contain IP addresses. The
Authentication Redirect feature operates only when policies for port 80 and 443 are configured for user or
user group authentication. [37241]
Centralized Management
l

l
l
There is no option to set up a Traffic Management action in an XTM v11.x Device Configuration
Template. [55732]
You cannot delete authentication users or groups if you use a Management Server configuration
template with the authentication server set to “any”. [65293]
If you used Centralized Management with devices subscribed to templates in earlier versions of WSM,
when you upgrade from WSM 11.x to v11.4 or higher, these templates are updated and the devices are
no longer subscribed. Each device retains its template configuration. Existing templates are updated to
use “T_” in their object names (to match the object names in the devices that used to subscribe to them).
After you upgrade, you’ll see the template upgrade that occurs during upgrade in your revision history.
When a XTM template is applied to a managed device, the Management Server creates a new
configuration revision for the device only if the new revision is going to be different from the current
revision. There is also no feedback about why a new configuration revision was not created. [57934]
FireCluster
l
The time on the FireCluster backup master can get out of sync with the cluster master, even when NTP
is enabled. [66134]
Workaround
Manually synchronize the time of the backup master. Connect to the cluster, launch Firebox
System Manager, and then select Tools > Synchronize Time. This synchronizes the time on both
cluster members to the time on the management computer.
l
When spanning tree protocol (STP) is enabled on some switches, a FireCluster failover can take 10
seconds or longer. [66180]
Workaround
Disable STP on the switch, configure the switch to use rapid STP, or use a different switch.
l
For an XTM 330 active/active FireCluster, a cluster member may lock up after you upgrade the Fireware
XTM OS. The upgrade of the individual cluster member may be successful, but the device might go into
an unresponsive state soon after the upgrade. [65771][65767]
Workaround
Reboot or power cycle the unresponsive device. This usually solves the problem, so that the
cluster can form after the device is up and running.

Users granted access to monitor FireCluster through role-based administration cannot see the
FireCluster device in Log and Report Manager. [65398]
The FireCluster backup master may become inactive when Mobile VPN with SSL or PPTP is configured

If the Log Server cannot be reached from the management IP addresses, only the current FireCluster
master will be able to connect. This can occur if the Log Server is connected through an External
network, but the management IP addresses are on a Trusted or Optional network. [64482]
If you change the network configuration of a FireCluster from Routed mode to Drop-in mode, and then
change it back to Routed mode, the IP address of the cluster interface is not correctly shown in the
Policy Manager Network > Configuration dialog box. The correct cluster interfaces are shown in the
FireCluster configuration dialog box. [63905]
Gateway AV updates in a system that is low on memory may result in a FireCluster failover [62222]
Workaround
Reduce the frequency that the system checks for Gateway AV updates to minimize the chance of
this occurring.
l
l
If a monitored link fails on both FireCluster members, the non-master member is switched into passive
mode and consequently does not process any traffic. A multi-WAN failover caused by a failed
connection to a link monitor host does not trigger FireCluster failover. FireCluster failover occurs only
when the physical interface is down or does not respond. Each XTM device has a set of default IP addresses assigned to the device interfaces in a range starting
with 10.0.0.1. The highest default IP address depends on the number of interfaces. If you set the IP
address of the Primary or Backup cluster interface to one of the default IP addresses, both devices
restart, and the backup master becomes inactive. [57663]
Workaround
Do not use any of the default IP addresses as the Primary or Backup cluster interface IP address.
l
l
When you have an active/active FireCluster and use the WebBlocker Override feature, you may be

When you use the built in IPSec client from an iPhone or iPad, the client connection will disconnect
when the connection duration reaches 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is caused by a limitation in the Cisco
client used by iPhone/iPad. You must reconnect the IPSec client to reestablish the VPN tunnel. [63147]
Mobile VPN with PPTP connections from Android mobile devices do not work consistently on 3G mobile

Connections from the Mobile VPN with IPSec client can route through the wrong external interface when
the XTM device is configured for multi-WAN in round-robin mode. [64386]
You cannot configure Mobile VPN with SSL to bridge network traffic to a bridged interface. [61844]
Mobile VPN with SSL users cannot connect to some network resources through a branch office VPN
tunnel that terminates on an active/active FireCluster. [61549]
You cannot ping the IP address of the XTM device interface to which a Shrew Soft VPN client
established a VPN tunnel. You can ping computers on that network, but not the interface IP address
itself. [60988]
Shrew Soft VPN client connections can drop if there are multiple cilents connected to an XTM device at
the same time issuing Phase 2 rekeys. [60261]
Phase 1 rekeys initiated by the Shrew Soft VPN client cause the client to be disconnected, if connected
more than 24 hours. In this case, we recommend that you set the rekey on your XTM device to 23 hours
-- one hour shorter than the rekey hard-coded in the Shrew Soft client configuration. This forces the XTM
device to initiate the rekey, and gives the client a notification that the tunnel must be re-established.

A continuous FTP session over a Mobile VPN with IPSec connection could get terminated if an IPSec
rekey occurs during the FTP transfer. [32769]
Workaround
Increase the rekey byte count.

Known Issues and Limitations
l
The Mobile VPN for SSL Mac client may not be able to connect to an XTM device when the
authentication algorithm is set to SHA 256. [35724]
Branch Office VPN
l
Manual branch office VPN fails when the pre-shared key exceeds 50 characters. [65215]
l
Do not use the same name for both a VPN Gateway and a VPN Tunnel. [66412]
l
You cannot use a pre-shared key greater than 50 characters in length for a branch office VPN tunnel.
[65215]
l
When you configure your XTM device in multi-WAN mode, you must select which interfaces to include
in your multi-WAN configuration. If there are any interfaces that you choose not to include in your multiWAN configuration (i.e. you clear the check box for that interface), the system does not create a route
for that network. This can cause a problem if you have a branch office VPN configured to include that
same interface. In this case, the VPN tunnel can fail to negotiate with its remote peer. [57153]
Workaround
If you use multi-WAN and have problems with your branch office VPN tunnels failing to negotiate
with their remote peers, you must open your multi-WAN configuration and select Configure
adjacent to your chosen multi-WAN configuration mode. Make sure that the appropriate interfaces
are included in your multi-WAN configuration.

l
A branch office VPN tunnel does not pass traffic if an inbound static NAT policy that includes IP 50 and
IP 51 protocols exists for the external IP address of the XTM device. [41822]
Managed branch office VPN tunnels cannot be established if the CRL distribution point (for example, the
WatchGuard Management Server or a third-party CRL distribution site you use) is offline. [55946]
The use of Any in a BOVPN tunnel route is changed in Fireware XTM. If a branch office VPN tunnel
uses Any for the Local part of a tunnel route, Fireware XTM interprets this to mean network 0.0.0.0 and
subnet mask 0.0.0.0 (in slash notation, 0.0.0.0/0). If the remote IPSec peer does not send 0.0.0.0/0 as
its Phase 2 ID, Phase 2 negotiations fail. [40098]
Workaround
Do not use Any for the Local or the Remote part of the tunnel route. Change the Local part of your
tunnel route. Type the IP addresses of computers behind the XTM device that actually participate
in the tunnel routing. Contact the administrator of the remote IPSec peer to determine what that
device uses for the Remote part of its tunnel route (or the Remote part of its Phase 2 ID).
l
If you have a large number of branch office VPN tunnels in your configuration, the tunnels may take a
long time to appear in Policy Manager. [35919]
Workaround
From Policy Manager, select View > Policy Highlighting. Clear the Highlight Firewall
policies based on traffic type check box.
