BIT will be performing a firmware update on the Fortinet firewall cluster.


To perform the update as smooth as possible the backup unit will be updated first followed by the other unit. During this maintenance, we will switch between the active and backup firewall a number of times. This switchover can cause a short disruption of one or a few seconds to all firewalled services.
