Advisory Notes

This section highlights important issues you should be aware of before deploying appliance software 7.3.3.

Install Luna Network HSM BIOS/BMC Patch Before Updating to Luna 7.3.3

Thales recommends installing the Luna Network HSM Appliance BIOS and BMC Firmware Update Patch before upgrading to Luna Network HSM appliance software 7.3.3.

Luna 7.3.x Appliance Software Does Not Support 10G Optical Ethernet

The Luna Network HSM with 10G optical ethernet capability is not supported by the Luna 7.3.x appliance software. If you have a 10G-ready appliance, update appliance software to Luna Network HSM Appliance Software 7.4.0 or newer only.

CAUTION!   Do not update the 10G appliance to Luna 7.3.x.

The port mapping will revert to the 1G configuration and you will lose 10G support. The appliance might require RMA to fix the port mapping.

NTP Server May Take Slightly Longer to Connect/Disconnect After Updating to Luna 7.3.x or newer

If you are using NTP, then after you update to Luna 7.3.x you might find that the Luna Network HSM appliance takes longer to synchronize with the NTP server.

To reduce the synchronization time, specify the -iburst option when adding an NTP server:

lunash:> sysconf ntp addserver <hostname/IP> -iburst

This causes the server to more rapidly synchronize when first connecting/reconnecting.
