Special notes and suggestions
HSM does not support TLS v1.3. If the HSM certificate is used in VS, the TLS v1.3 handshake will fail.
Workaround: Uncheck the TLSv1.3 in the SSL profile if you are using the HSM certificate to avoid potential handshake failure.
- Keep the old SSL version predefined configuration to ensure a smooth upgrade.
After upgrading to 7.0.2, in Virtual Machine HA environments where both nodes have been installed with certificate embedded licenses you must reinstall those licenses. As some backend certificate files would have been synchronized and overwritten by the HA Peer (due to an existing bug), the certificate file would not be recoverable. Reinstalling the certificate embedded licenses is required to ensure they would work properly where they are needed, such as in ZTNA or FortiSandbox Cloud.
When deploying the new GSLB based on FortiADC 7.0.0, the verify-CA function will be enabled by default.
To use the SRIOV feature, users must deploy a new VM.
In version 6.2.0, the default mode of QAT SSL has been changed to polling.
Before downgrading from 6.1.4, ensure the new L7 TCP or L7 UDP application profiles are deleted or changed to a profile type that is supported in the downgrade version. Otherwise, this will cause the cmdb to crash.
- The backup configuration file in versions 5.2.0-5.2.4/5.3.0-5.3.1 containing the certificate configuration might not be restored properly (causing the configuration to be lost). After upgrading, please discard the old 5.2.x/5.3.x configuration file and back up the configuration file in the upgraded version again.
