The version 3.0 update will take between one minute and two hours depending on the size of the WiDirect. The login page will be unavailable during that time, so it may be beneficial to disable the firewall on the WiClients before starting the upgrade process. Additionally certain services may be unavailable on the WiDirect during the upgrade, such as DHCP and DNS. Please contact AllCity Wireless support staff for information on performing the database upgrade during an overnight period prior to doing the version 3.0 upgrade.
There is no downgrade process from a WiDirect 3.0 to 2.x. Data loss will occur if you restore a database from a 3.0 box to a WiDirect running 2.x.
WiDirects running version 2.2 and above will experience no issues when running with a WiClient running version 3.0. WiDirects running versions 1.3 through 2.1 will not display the access point SNMP information when running with a WiClient version 2.2 or higher.
If using MAC authentication then it is recommended that all WiClients be upgraded to at least version 2.4 when the WiDirect is running version 3.0.
