Here is a short reminder regarding Netscaler MPX upgrade.

1) Backup licenses, configuration, e.t.c.

2) Optionally backup product documentation from /var/netscaler/doc (pdf files)

Do not upgrade NetScaler via Web Interface. There are numerous reports that it can brick your device.

Download new firmware at Citrix -> My Products -> Netscaler ADC – Firmware

Unpack firmware to /var/nsinstall there you may find previous firmware, I believe this is left intended if you’d require downgrade.

Preserve original folder naming. Do CD to the folder with latest build.

First, if necessary, reset netscaler config using the following command:

clear ns config full

then use procedure described in the official citrix KB:

> shell
# cd /etc
# for file in *; do
# rm /nsconfig/$file 2> /dev/null
# done

# cd /nsconfig
# rm ns.conf* ZebOS.conf.* rc.conf

# cd ssl
# rm *
# exit
> reboot

After reboot previous configuration is gone. Please do this only if you’re not intending to save current config and willing to give netscaler a fresh start.

Then, proceed with the configuration as usual:

set ns config – ipaddress IP – netmask MASK

add ns ip IP2 MASK -type mip

add route GW

set system user nsroot administrator

save ns config


now it is time to create lacp channel:

add channel LA/1

bind channel LA/1 0/1

bind channel LA/1 0/2

let’s bind it to the proper VLAN

add vlan VLANID

bind vlan VLANID -ifnum LA/1 -tagged

save ns config
