Upgrade Virtual PSA5000V to PSA7000V

Upgrade Virtual PSA5000V to PSA7000V

Hello everybody,

 

We have a need to upgrade the PSA5000V on Azure VNET to PSA7000V. Since its a virtual appliance, can i apply the license and add additional CPU core to upgrade or will i need to setup on new virtual appliance and migrate the configuration?

 

Thanks

We've been told that you can upgrade in place.  You will have to reboot to add the necessary cores and memory, however.

@rvandolson is right, adding PSA7000v license should convert the node from PSA5000v to PSA7000v, however you need to power down for adding the CPU cores and memory.

Could you confirm the order?

1- Powert off, CPU and RAM upgrade and 2- Licensing

or

1- Licensing and 2- Power off, CPu and RAM upgrade

@victor.criado Both order will work just fine.

 

In my lab, I often follow 1) licensing, 2) power-off, 3) upgrade CPU and upgrade, 4) power-on.

Did you try it with a cluster? Is it mandatory break the cluster before the upgrade?

I have not tried with cluster setup, but the results will be same. We don't need to break or delete the cluster.

Re: Upgrade Virtual PSA5000V to PSA7000V

for a standard OS upgrade, you do not need to break & form the cluster
for changing the "hardware" type, you may need to as you cannot have different hardware, physical or virtual, in a cluster. you may be able to do it without…but I would plan on needing to break and form the cluster again.
