Installing the new activation kit

After you install the activation kit retrieved earlier from your personal MyStormshield area, you will be able to perform two operations simultaneously:

  • Change the V / VS-VU model to an EVA model,
  • Assign a new serial number to the firewall in the following format: VMSNSXXXXXXX.

To do so:

  1. Log in to the firewall's administration interface: https://firewall_IP_address/admin,
  2. Authenticate using the administrator account and the associated password,
  3. Go to Configuration > System > Maintenance > System update tab.
  4. Select the activation kit (file format vminit-Firewall_Serial_Number.maj) in the field Select the update.
  5. Click on Update firmware.

The firewall will automatically restart once the activation kit has been applied.
