I have a doubt regarding Radia Patch Manager Acquisition.I have downloaded an MS06-034 directly from the Internet and copied those files to the folder in the Radia Patch Manager server ( c:\Novadigm\integrationserver\data\patch\microsoft\ms06-034). Then I ran the command nvdkit ./modules/patch.tkd acquire -bulletins ms06-034.
Will the above command updates the Radia Configuration Server in the Patch Domain ( Will the bulletin be updated in RCS)...
I know that we can download directly from the internet.but my point is can we directly copy those patch files(.exe/.msi format) to the novadigm folder and run the acquisition, so that it updates the patch manager database.Any way to do this.
what you are saying is possible and it is the default behaviour. Patch file are automatically checked under local directory before being fetched from remote url.
When you run an acquisition here's what steps are taken by patch publisher: 1. check hp site for latest patch xml files 2. download patch catalogs from microsoft site. 3. then process each bulletin specified in the parameter -bulletins. during this process the missing patch files are either taken from local directory or downloaded. 4. synchronize MSSQL and RCS databases.
Now if step 1 or 2 fails then the publisher automatically uses the last catalogs.
You can also post your latest acquisition logs for us to look at. You last logs showed a dns resolution error.
Thanks Jamshed.But my point is i dont have internet connectivity n my lab,so i have copied the microsoft patches MS06-034 thru Flash drive direclty to my RCS server with Patch manager installed.Then i ran the command which gave me the error which i have send u the log file.Can u tell me is it not possible to copy the patch directly and run the command or should we have the internet connectivity ?
I have Radia Patch Manager and RCS installed.I need to Import/export the patches to another RCS Server.When i do that thru RADDBUTIL, iam able to export it properly but when i import it to another RCS Server it throws me some error.i have attached the log file.
Also i tried with ZEDMAMS command for importing the 3 files(xpr,xpc,xpi) to the RCS again the same problem.i have attached the log file...
could anyone tell me how to do that step by step ?
