Instructions to Apply the Service Pack
- If you are trying to apply more than one service pack at a time, you need to restart the Firewall Analyzer Server after applying each service pack and check whether your data is intact in the web client. If you don't have any issues, follow the above steps for applying the other service pack. If you find any issues, do not continue applying the other service pack and contact Firewall Analyzer Support.
