Re: Hotfix installation

Hello,

 

The latest OA11.02 hotfix we received includes instructions for various deployement scenarios:

- add the hotfix to your agent installation package

- push from the management server via ovdeploy

- install on each node manually

 

I think we will push from the management server to nodes with 11.02 already installed. And include the hotix to our standard installation packages.

 

Cheers,

Emmanuel.

Re: Hotfix installation

Hello

 

Typically every hotfix will have steps on how to implement it that will cover situation like if it can be pushed from the server or if it can only be manually done on the node. So please check the specific hotfix text file for details.


Also note that hotfix is meant only to be applied on a node if it runs into the specific problem that the hotfix is correcting. A hotfix is not the same a patch - in other words it is not meant for 'blanket' deployment for all nodes as it has not undergone full testing. So you may really want to consder that as well.

 

Hope this helps.
Regards

Ram

Re: Hotfix installation

Ram,

 

Agreed, however, there was a recent critical security bulletin affecting OA. I suspect you may want to apply this particular hotfix to all nodes...

 

Emmanuel.

Re: Hotfix installation

Hello

 

Agreed that security hotfix may be applicable to all nodes (I covered myself with the generic statement that if hotfix is applicable to the node ;) ).

 

Even for this hotfix, the associated text file has steps for pushing it from the management server using ovdeploy to the node. Hopefully that will help on what was asked in this thread!

 

Regards
Ram
