Upgrading from 2.8 or older

If you are upgrading Edge from a previous version (2.8 or older), there are a few options to help you upgrade to the latest version of CTX/Soltra Edge. Upgrading from 2.8 or older to 2.9 or newer does entail a change to the database schema and isn't a straight-forward Yum update. However, once you make it to 2.9+, you'll be in great shape for a Yum update for future versions of CTX/Soltra Edge.

There are three options to upgrade from 2.8 or older to the latest version:

  1. Go to and complete the download form to get a new ova

    • Set up polling for the threat intel feed of your choice

  2. Use the In-Place Upgrade Documentation

    • This document is intended for advanced Linux users

    • The process must be followed carefully without any missed steps

    • Creating a backup is very important before you begin the upgrade process

  3. Use the 2 Machine Upgrade Documentation

    • This is an easier process but requires extra hardware/resources
