Citrix Netscaler v10.1 Upgrade to v12

Download the .tgz upgrade file from here https://www.citrix.co.uk/downloads/netscaler-adc/firmware.html

Save your configuration first ( remember this does not save automatically ) and backup a config backup.

If this is a virtual machine do a snapshot / chekpoint

Let’s get started with the upgrade wizard:

select the location for the firmware file:

Firmware

Next, verify the licenses you have already installed these will work with the new netscaler and begin the upgrade.\

NetScaler upgrade warning

The upgrade will take down the gui first , then after the netscaler when it says rebooting

Other key things to note – the upgrade has turned back on SSLv3 support on the Gateway vServer…however, it has enabled support for TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 which was missing from the 8007.e release. Nice!

SSL TLS

 

 

The new web interface will look like below

If you see a solid black screen after upgrade you will need to delete your cache or do a CTRL and F5

 

Note

Double check the SSL Profile on your virtual server make sure it’s set to : ns_default_ssl_profile_frontend

With SSL3 off and TLS 1.2 on , you can check via : https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/
