After your browser uploads the firmware image file, FortiDB upgrades to the new firmware version, and then restarts. This process takes a few minutes.
To upgrade your firmware using the CLI
When you upgrarding the firmware using the CLI, FortiDB requires a TFTP or FTP server that it can connect to.
1. Start the FTP or TFTP server.
2. Copy the new firmware image file to the FTP or TFTP server.
3. Log in to the CLI as admin.
4. Verify that FortiDB can connect to the FTP or TFTP server.
For example, if the IP address of the TFTP server is 192.168.1.168, enter the following command:
execute ping 192.168.1.168
5. Enter the following command to copy the firmware image from the TFTP server to FortiDB:
execute restore image ftp <filename> <ftp_ip>
execute restore image tftp <filename> <tftp_ip>
where:
<filename> is the name and location of the firmware image file
<ftp_ip> or <tftp_ip> is the IP address of the FTP or TFTP server.
For example, if the firmware image file name is image.out and the IP address of the FTP or TFTP server is 192.168.1.168, enter:
execute restore image tftp image.out 192.168.1.168
FortiDB responds with the following message:
