More fortiOS 5.2.4 woes

I spent over  2 days trying to figure out why a fortigate was missing parts of the configuration after a 5.2.4 upgrade. I ran across this CSB from  support@fortinet and now I realize it was not me


It seems like fortiOS has left quite a few end-users asking a lot of ????????s

I don't know what's wrong with Fortinet lately but things just don't work or work very badly. We can only hope 5.2.5 fixes a lot of the issues seen in 5.2.4

As usual in any upgrade you should;

   > make backup
   > have re-convert plan
   > download the existing  OS version in case you need to revert
   > monitor post upgrades
   > monitor support for any CSBs
