Note

In Citrix SD-WAN release 11.0.0, the underlying OS/kernel for the SD-WAN software is upgraded to a newer version, requiring an automatic reboot to be performed during the upgrade process. As a result, the expected time for upgrading each appliance is increased by approximately 100 seconds. In addition, by including the new OS, the size of the upgrade package transferred to each branch appliance is increased by approximately 90MB.
