This article provides details about a critical update required for Open Mesh Switches running firmware older than version 1.03.24.
- Open Mesh Switches
Open Mesh switches running firmware earlier than 1.03.24 have certificates which will no longer work on April 9, 2019. On April 9, 2019 these switches will no longer check in, preventing device management, reporting, and automatic upgrades. To avoid this, you must upgrade your switches to firmware version 1.03.24 prior to this date.
Switches running firmware between 1.03.07 - 1.03.19
- Navigate to Configure → Maintenance and toggle Automatic Upgrades to on. Once this is enabled, switches on the network will update to the current stable firmware release during the specified maintenance window. To avoid future disruption, and to receive the latest features and bug fixes, leave automatic upgrades enabled at all times. Open Mesh recommends setting a maintenance window during non-critical hours to limit disruption to your network.
- You can also click the Upgrade Now button to immediately start the upgrade.
- If a switch fails to upgrade despite enabling automatic upgrades, reboot it and wait for the maintenance window or click the Upgrade Now button again.

These switches cannot check into Cloudtrax due to an already expired certificate, so they will require a manual firmware flash.
