On Monday, September 20, 2021, Cisco Umbrella will release Virtual Appliance (VA) patch versions 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 to the stage track and the first, second and third wave of the production track. These patches will be applied consecutively and will not cause the VA to restart.
Customer VAs may upgrade over a period of days as opposed to consecutively upgrading one after another. To receive this upgrade, ensure that your firewall is configured to enable access to disthost.umbrella.com.
As a reminder, two VAs must be deployed in order to upgrade automatically during the upgrade window.
In accordance with Cisco policy, a list of open source software modules used in the VA is attached to these release notes. It contains licenses and notices for open source software used in this product.
CHANGE SUMMARY (3.1.2 to 3.1.3)
- Addresses issue where SNMP monitoring of the VA was failing after upgrade to version 3.1.2.
CHANGE SUMMARY (3.1.1 to 3.1.2)
