    1.2 Upgrade Notes   
        
        1.2.1 Upgrading to GB-OS 6.1.x
        
              Firewalls must be on GB-OS version 6.0.x or higher to properly
              upgrade to GB-OS 6.1.x. See the Upgrade Guide for more information.
              
              
        1.2.2 GB-250 Rev A Not Supported
                    
              GB-250 Rev A firewalls are NOT supported in GB-OS 6.1.0 and above.
              Determine GB-250 Rev A or Rev B by the following:
              
                 1. GB-250 Rev B firewalls have USB ports while GB-250 Rev A do
                    not have USB ports. 
              
                 2. GB-250 Rev B firewall serial numbers are:
                    Starting at S/N 65002101 and above 
                    Starting at S/N 65902101 and above
        
        1.2.3 Error Messages Upon Initial Reboot
    
              Upon rebooting after successful installation, the GTA
              Firewall UTM Appliance may display errors when accessed
              using the Web interface.  This is expected, these errors are
              generated because the browser's cache is trying to access
              files and locations that no longer apply. Click OK to any
              displayed errors and refresh the browser window to access
              GB-OS 6.1.1. If the error messages persist, clear your
              browser's cache.                         
              
              
        1.2.4 IPSec Object Upgrade 
        
              When upgrading to GB-OS 5.4.2 and above, all firewalls using 
              SHA-2, with keys larger than 128, will need to be upgraded. 
              If unable to upgrade, firewalls must be switched to a compatible 
              algorithm
               
               
    1.3 SSL Certificate Replacement

        GB-OS version 6.1.1 will install a new default security/SSL
        certificate. Some browsers, including Netscape and Mozilla,
        will not recognize the new certificate if the original has
        never been replaced. If you are unable to log on to the
        firewall after upgrading, delete the browser's cached security
        certificate, then close and restart your browser before
        reattempting remote access to your firewall.
