FOS 7.3 is not longer supported.

 

in order to"roll back" you need to downgrade the FOS

Thanks Antonio,

 

We are already running our switches with FOS 7.3.x and running with Fabric Watch.

We now want to move to MAPS.

But I didn't find any document which says about rollback from Fabric watch.. is it possible or not.

 

Regards

Amit

if you don't want to move to MAPS, why you ask ?

 

 

--->>>....roll back from MAPS to Fabric Watch ...

 

sorry but I'm a bit confused about you question.

 

If FW is licensed, is supported in FOS 7.3

 

or do you meaning roll back MAPS config to FW ?

 

such one is not supported, and no DOC is available.

Yes, I mean roll back MAPS config to FW ...
I have to explain roll back plan to management.
I didn't find any document on this. So was wondering if it possible. If so, then what is the process.

you need to remove th erule, clear the mapsdb.

 

you should be able to disable maps and the re-configure FW

 

I've never do such a roll-back because have no sense to do that., and MAPS in standard default fwithout a license offer the same features as FW.

 

it would be very interresting what is the reason you want to disable MAPS

Re: Can we roll back from MAPS to Fabric Watch at 7.3 Switch version

Hello Antonic,

I am preparing a detailed runbook which includes how to configure MAPS with customized rules set for MAPS which I have to present to Management.  In that runbook I have to include Fallback plan as well. I did lot of research online but didn't get any such document. Please note I would be putting in new policy, I would not be migrating existing FW rules to MAPs.

So, I am curious if it is possible to rollback from MAPS to FW or not?
If it is then is their any step by step document which I can refer?
Has it been tested by someone is past..was it successful.

is unknown to me a revert from MAPS to FW, and I don't now any DOC about.

 

with other word, - due my above statement - but I can my be wrong, you cannot revert the MAPS config to FW.
