Roll back on Clearpass Hardware Appliance

Hi all,


I'm in the process of planning an upgrade of a pair of CP-HW-25K appliances.


We're going from 6.0.1 to 6.2.x and i'm just trying to get prepared in case of any issues.


My understanding is that you can't downgrade an appliance after an upgrade has been applied?

If we get to 6.1 or 6.2 and decide its not working as expected and want to restore a backup, can we factory reset back to 6.0.1 or will the hardware need to be RMA'd like the old Amigopod servers?

In the CLI you can change the boot partition back to the older version. It behaves similar to the controllers.


system boot-image -l
(displays version info for the partitions)


system boot-image -a <imagever>
(sets the active boot partition to the version specified)
