UNMS is forcing CS versions of firmware, isn't that unsecure?

Hi

 

when I open devices - update firmware, for most of the devices the CS firmware is selected, even if all devices have no-CS firmware, I believe that is a bug? And also potential security threat, as we should not use Custom Script firmwares if not needed right?

And when I'm trying to update via Firmware section, I think I know what firmware will be uploaded but it will be great when there will be writted which version exactly (CS or non-CS).

Hi,

 

I have just let my UNMS update some of my XM and XW radios, and it updated with cs firmware even though I don't have it on my server.  I re did them to non-cs firmware.

 



If it was easy, everyone would be doing it!

@tuckerdog  Hello Kirk. Can you please show a screenshot (ideally of a whole screen)? It would help us get a more clear idea of the situation.

@PeterK2  Hello Peter. Thank you very much for the report. According to your picture, the wrong FW is offered for NanoStation M5 XW. For the XM everything is all right. Do you have any other airMAX device to check how this situation looks there, please? Regarding the second screenshot, it is most likely a similar issue of XW vs. XM FW.

@UBNT-Radek 

 

Ahoy captain,

 

1. bad news, I lost the XM devices (it was replaced with XW) and different devices will be connected only in few weeks

 

2. In devices category, it doesn't looks good:

A) when I set device specifically to Nanostation M5 in the dropdown menu, I can choose verson 6.1.1 (no CS), but that won't chance column UPGRADE TO. Not sure if that should happen online or only when clicked on UPGRADE DEVICES. Of course correct behaviour is that it will change column UPGRADE TO on-the-fly

B) If I select in the dropdown menu 6.1.1. (No-CS) and I click the big blue button Set Firmware Versions to the Latest, it will change the drop down menu back to 6.1.1-CS
