The primary use of this script is to notify about RouterOS updates.
Run from a terminal you can start the update process or schedule it.
Centrally managing update process of several devices is possibly by specifying versions safe to be updated on a web server.
Also installing patch updates (where just last digit is increased) automatically is supported.
Just install the script:
And add a scheduler for automatic update notification:
/ system scheduler add interval=1d name=check-routeros-update on-event="/ system script run check-routeros-update;" start-time=startup;
Configuration is required only if you want to control update process with
safe versions from a web server. The configuration goes to
global-config-overlay, this is the parameter:
SafeUpdateUrl: url to check for safe update, the channel (
testing) is appended
SafeUpdatePatch: install patch updates automatically
Be notified when run from scheduler or run it manually:
/ system script run check-routeros-update;
If an update is found you can install it right away.
Installing script packages-update gives extra options.
