Questions for big CAE system with more than 7000 clients.

Enviroment:

  • We have a CAE core server called Server-A for about 7000 clients. This network called Network-A has no internet connection.
  • we have a second CAE core server called Server-B on the internet for download patchs. This network called Network-B
  • we manually export and import the patchs from the Server-B to the Server-A, then deploy.
  • The network-A is a wide area network which has about 30 sites in different states/provinces.
  • Now there is no any satellite server on the Network-A.
  • Now the patches are deployed site by site, we send notify to one site with about 10 patch bulletins.

 

Questions:

  • How to update the Patch Manager Agent on the Server-A ?
  • Is there a better method to deploy the patch ?

Thank you  very much!

Hi!

 

With regards to your first question:

 

  • How to update the Patch Manager Agent on the Server-A ?

If you select Publish and Distribute UPDATES during the patch acquisition in server B (HPCA Console --> Configuration --> Acquisition Settings -->  Agent Updates), the updates will be published to the PATCHMGR Domain and connected to the DISCOVER_PATCH instance. This option will distribute the updates to your Patch Manager target devices.

 

Then, when exporting the patches, the DISCOVER_PATCH instance needs to be exported too, so we import in server A these updates along with the security patches.

 

You have more info on this in the Patch Manager guide, pages 46 and 97, available here:

I hope this helps!

Maria

Good, thank you for your answer, Maria! 

 

BTW, I am using the CAE 7.9.  The info below as you mention is from a different CAE version, right?  Because I think it is different  in CAE7.9.

 

(HPCA Console --> Configuration --> Acquisition Settings -->  Agent Updates)
