Previous staging command still activeOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

 

 

We have failed about 1k devices with SA agent’s upgrade, when I checked the job history for some reason the jagent upgrade job was failed and again tried running agent upgrade job, we get the job status as skipped with error "Previous staging command still active". I raised a support case and their suggestion is to install it manually, but somehow I am not able to accept their suggestion.

 

Steps taken from side.

Restarted the Managed agent service.

Restarted opsware-sas service.

I see the agent was downloded to Managed server under "/var/opt/opsware/agent/agent_upgrade_download"

Could some please help me on this.

Thanks

I am trying to now add the Windows patching files. I successfully installed the utilities, but when attempting to download and install the database ".cab" file from a local file and from the microsoft website it fails mid way through the installation. The importing process is slow too. 

 I now have the actual error message.

How to import windows patches in a policy en-masse?Open in a New Window

I have a number of Windows patch policies with patches that have not yet been imported into SA.

In SA 10.23, I could attach the policies to a server, then in the server view of "Patches with Policies and Exceptions" I could then select all of the un-imported patches and do a "Import from vendor" for all of them.

In SA 10.51, it does not list all of the patches in the view (I opened a case for that). 

Is there another method for importing patches in large quantity?   With the caveat being that I only want to import the ones that are used in a policy.

It really would have made sense to have that functionality from inside of the Patch policy!

 

 

HPSA Putty and Telnet issuesOpen in a New Window

Hey,

I was trying to use the default path (telnet), and it didn't work.. I right click the server > Open with > Remote Terminal > it returned an error about the network.

I tried to run a test from the options, and it returned an error about telnet not being a valid command (although locally the telnet client is working).

I changed the path to "C:\\Program Files\\putty\\putty.exe" -telnet %h %p as per some of the solutions here, and now opening it with Remote Terminal temporarily opens up a PuTTY window which then closes straight away.

I run the test from the options and it returns "Test Connection Succeeded!" also.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

 

Get timestamp for installed software policy on a serverOpen in a New Window

Let us say, if I have a server that it attached to 10 software policies. How do I found out when (timestamp)  each of those policies got attached (and remediated)? 

This may be a silly question, but I am unable to find any information in pytwist documentation!

Can't get the same from java Gui as well. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED - exit code 4Open in a New Window

Hello,

After researching for a while, it seems that I can not properly configure the media server to use compiler plans for ubuntu. I am using the media server that comes integrated with SA, I have already uploaded the installation cd in the correct place (in theory). I have tried to access nfs to that folder and I access it correctly. I see that in the media server script of the plan, there is a parameter that forces me to be http protocol to access the repository (I tried it with nfs and but it does not work, it must be http....)

The issue is that in the step that runs the script "copy boot media" gives me the following error:

Imágenes integradas 1

Do I have to specify a certificate somewhere? if this is the case, why? because i'm accessing the SA server itself and not an external media server. 

Thanks in advance.

 

Dynamically pass --prefix option to an RPMOpen in a New Window

Hello, I have uploaded some pre-compiled rpm's (ready for install) into HPSA. I would like give the user to pass "--prefix=/xx/xx" dynamically based on how he calls it. If he calls it with --prefix, then the rpm will install to that prefix, if not, it will install to default location.

I am aware of the "install flags" within the package properties page, but I am unable to figure out how to pass this parameter dynamically at the invoke time. Please share your thought.

Initially I created, a script like this :

#!/bin/ksh

if [ -z $1 ]; then
echo 'Installing to prefix location $1'
rpm -ivh --prefix=$1 PKG1_el7.x86_64.rpm
else
rpm -ivh PKG1_el7.x86_64.rpm
fi

But obvioulsy this will fail because the agent will look for this rpm in the CWD on the managed host. 

Please shed some light on this. There may be easier way, I am still learning! Thank you.
