Summary

This error message appears when doing a direct upgrade from DSA 7.0 to version 8.0:

Details
Public

This issue happens because of a limitation in Deep Security Agent 7.0 wherein the installer size should not exceed 7MB (compressed size). The DSA 8.0 installer, on the other hand, is about 22MB. The original purpose of this limitation is to verify the installer size.

This limitation was increased to 200MB in DSA 7.5.

As a workaround, upgrade DSA 7.0 to version 7.5 first, then upgrade to DSA 8.0.
