Upgrade a Device

A device image is a software installation package that enables you to upgrade to or downgrade from one software release to another.

Juniper Security Director Cloud facilitates the management of device images by enabling you to upload device images from your local file system and deploy the image on a device or multiple devices of the same device family simultaneously.

You can download device images from

  1. Select SRX > Device Management > Devices.

    The Devices page opens.

  2. Select the device or device cluster to upgrade, and click More > Upgrade Devices.
    The Upgrade Devices page opens displaying the platform and current software version deployed on the device or device cluster.
  3. Select the device or device cluster to upgrade, and click on the top-right corner of the Select devices table.

    To upgrade multiple devices of same device model or a different device model that supports common image, select the devices to upgrade, and click Bulk Select Image.

  4. Select the image to upgrade the device or device cluster to in the Selected Image column.
  5. Click to proceed with the upgrade.
  6. Click one of the following options:
    • Run Now to immediately trigger the upgrade on the device or device cluster.
    • Schedule Later to upgrade the device later and specify a date and time to for the upgrade.
  7. Click OK.

A job is created for the upgrade process and the details are displayed on the top of the page. Click Administration > Jobs to view the progress of the job.

While the device is being upgraded, the device goes into maintenance mode and you cannot perform any operations on the device. After the device is upgraded and connects back to Juniper Security Director Cloud, the device is rebooted, the device inventory is resynchronized, and the device is available for all operations.
