UTM: Confd storage format version

  • Article ID: 115608
  • Updated: 06 Feb 2014

This is a complete table of all Confd storage format version numbers since Astaro Security Gateway 7.0 GA up to the latest Sophos UTM product.

Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)


Sophos UTM

Operating systems

ASG V7, ASG V8, UTM 9

Introduction

The whole configuration of a Sophos UTM device is stored in a file called the Confd storage. Implementing new features in the UTM software often involves extending or otherwise changing the Confd storage format. Whenever any change to the Confd storage format is released, the format version number corresponding to that release branch gets incremented, such that the Confd can figure out how to upgrade its storage both when installing Up2Date packages and when restoring backups created by previous Confd versions.

The following table is helpful when dealing with machines running old software versions, to find out whether certain upgrades have already been performed, whether certain storage format versions are already supported, and which upgrades will be performed when upgrading to a specific higher version. It also provides an overview of the ASG V7, V8, and UTM 9 release history.

Finding out version numbers

Confd storage format version numbers are logged during Confd startup to the main Confd log file. It is not possible to view the storage format version numbers from Confd client programs. Be careful to not confuse the storage format version number with the storage data version number. The latter changes whenever the data contained in the storage changes and is reset whenever the Confd is restarted, even when the Confd binary (and consequently, the storage format) is unchanged. To view the data version number, either call the Confd function get_version using the Confd command line client or run the Confd changelog watcher utility program, confd-watch.plx.

Understanding the table

In ASG V8 and UTM 9, when the storage format changes, the new format version number is the four-digit release number with all dots removed. In ASG V7, the storage format version numbers are small, monotonically increasing integer numbers.

In the following table,

  • the first number is the branch number, e.g. 7.5, 8.0 or 8.1
  • the second number is the release number
  • numbers in square brackets are the highest storage format version numbers known to the respective Confd binary

When a release does not change the storage format, no new format version number is assigned. In the latter case, the following table shows additional releases using the same storage format at the end of the line defining the storage format being used. For example, the two lines

  • 8.1: 8.055 [8002, 43] beta2 (October 27, 2010) 8.060 beta3 (November 4)
  • 7.5: 7.508 [43] (October 14, 2010)

indicate the following: In the 8.1 branch, ASG software version 8.055, called "beta2", was soft-released publicly on October 27. It implements the storage format versions 8055, 8002 and 43, the latter corresponding to the 7.508 release. Another release using exactly the same storage format as 8.055, ASG software version 8.060, called "beta3", was soft-released publicly on November 4. That is, 8.060 also implements storage format versions 8055, 8002 and 43. In the 7.5 branch, ASG software version 7.508, implementing storage format version 43, was released on October 14.
