What to do
1. Download and burn ISO image to optical media
You can download the latest release of Astaro Security Gateway & UTM from the Astaro FTP site, which you can then burn to optical media (CD or DVD) to re-image your appliance.
You may verify the integrity of this ISO image using the MD5 file found in the same FTP directory. Once the file has been downloaded, burn the ISO image using an ISO burning software such as CDBurnerXP. Do not copy the ISO image file directly to the disc as this will not create a bootable re-imaging disc.
2. Steps to re-image your appliance
Note: The following procedure will permanently delete your existing data.
- Power-off the ASG/UTM appliance.
- Plug a SVGA monitor to the SVGA port (optional) of your appliance. This step will help monitor the installation process. If the ASG/UTM doesn't have a VGA port, the installation process can be monitored using the LCD panel.
- Plug in the USB-CD-ROM drive (with the burned CD in the optical drive). For the ASG 320 it is important to use the USB port at the front due to compatibility issues.
- Power-on the ASG/UTM appliance.
- Make sure that "Boot from USB-CDROM" in BIOS is on first position (default on the appliances distributed by Sophos).
- Once the installer has started, it will begin to re-image the appliance. No questions will be asked by the installer during the re-imaging.
- After installation, the appliance will start to beep until it is switched off.
|Success ||1 beep, 1 second sleep, repeated until switched off |
|Failure ||3 short beeps, 2 seconds sleep, repeated until switched off. |
- Once you have powered off the appliance, the installation is complete. Default factory values will be set on the device (see below).
- You can also reboot the ASG/UTM with your recent configuration backup in the root folder of a USB Flash drive, and the ASG/UTM will automatically apply your configuration backup.
