  • Recommended Solaris Package upgrade procedure

    We would like to know the recommended Application Package upgrade procedure. We followed the procedure as defined in the Application Packaging Developer's Guide.

    Currently, we have followed the following procedure during the upgrade:

    1. check if the old version is available.
    2. If it is available, run the pkgrm command to remove the old package as indicated in the Application Packaging Developer's Guide. But because the package names are the same and we execute the pkgrm since the script preinstall, in some systems, command is not allow to remove the old package because it is run from scope of pkgadd command. The following error message if poster during package verification step is performed

  • ACS 3.3 to 4.0 upgrade problems


    I have a Cisco ACS 3.3 running on a win2k platform server and I need to upgrade to ACS4.0 on win2k.

    -3.3 backup and restoring files on web interface 4.0 does not work;

    -the same operation using csutils.exe works not (csutil b [...], then csutil - r [...])

    -J' installed the new machine with ACS3.3, I imported the data/group/user with csutil, then I installed ACS 4.0 using setup.exe. The result is that the ACS services will not start

    Anyone know what I need to do?

    Thank you


    Hi Antonio,.

    -3.3 backup and restoring files on web interface 4.0 do not work.

    * It won't work, because in ACS we can back up and restore the database among same versions only of the ACS, also applies to replication.

    -the same operation using csutils.exe works not (csutil b [...], then csutil - r [...])

    * Answer will be the same as above.

    -J' installed the new machine with ACS3.3, I imported the data/group/user with csutil, then I installed ACS 4.0 using setup.exe. The result is that the ACS services do not start.

    * Normal this is if you hit a bug, that when we try to upgrade a database of ACS 3.3 (x) xx of ACS 4.0 build we have leak customer spaces AAA and/or servers writing AAA in databaae, and that can cause a problem. But we cannot not be hitting this bug.

    How to upgrade:

    [1] make sure we follow the path correct upgradation and supported:

    [2] then follow following steps upgrade:

    Summarizing link above, just run installation of ACS 4.0 on an existing installation of ACS 3.3, and the installation program will ask itself, to save the previous configuration, select Yes at this time.

    Let me know if it helps. Please rate if this helps.

  • Cisco Secure ACS 3.3 (1)-&gt; 4.0 upgrade problems (1)

    Hi all!

    I have problems updating my primary ACS since version 3.3-> 4.0

    I always get the following error message, then it does the upgrade:

    "The record of the CiscoSecure ACS seems to be blocked by another application: C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v3.3.

    Please close all applications... blabla... »

    The thing is, I have improved my ACS backup first, and this upgrade worked like a charm.

    In both cases, both for the primary and backup I do a takeover with Dameware remote, copied the ACS 4 folder on the hard disk of the server and make the upgrade of this folder.

    As I said, the upgrade of backup server worked without a hitch.

    That's what I tried:

    1. I checked that NO application use the 3.3 ACS file and no Explorer window is open on this folder or subfolders.

    I checked using a small program called Filemon.exe from Sysinternals. According to this program, anything accessed said folder.

    I also checked it again by renaming actually ACS 3.3 file once I stop all services of the ACS. I could not rename the folder if the services have been started.

    2. I tried to stop the ACS services first and then make the configuration, got the same error.

    3. I have disabled the antivirus software, got the same error.

    Basically I am at my wits end now...

    However, I have two options:

    1. uninstall ACS 3.3, do a clean install of ACS 4.0 and import the data of all the GBA backup.

    Who would not raise by the primary association with the ACS configuration backup? So I think I will need to go on it later and make changes, if necessary?

    2 make a backup of the ACS 3.3 with csutil b

    Uninstall ACS 3.3, do a clean install of ACS 4.0 and import all the data with csutil - r

    Would this work? I've seen conflicting information here in this forum, some say that it works, the other say it's not.

    I'm a little confused why it worked so well the GBA backup but fails on the primary ACS.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Folder lock message often appears if newspapers located in the directory of the ACS are too big.

    (1) download the file 'IPS-K9-7, 0-2 - E4.pkg' through IDM

    (2) IDM--> Configuration--> sensor--> sensor update management--> choose update is located on the client--> choose file 'IPS-K9-7, 0-2 - E4.pkg'--> hit the button "Update".

    It will take some time (about 20 minutes) to upgrade the sensor, so don't panic if it does not return to the top 'UP' status immediately.

    No, do not reimage system (IPS-4240-K9-sys-1.1-a-7.0-2-E4.img), which would eliminate all of your configuration.

    Just perform the upgrade using this upgrade file: IPS-K9-7, 0-2 - E4.pkgand which would automatically be updated to 7.0.2 (E4).

  • Problems with patching: ACS 5.0 to 5.1 upgrade

    I'm following the instructions to upgrade ACS 5.0 to 5.1

    But I can't get past the first step:

    Step 1 Install the ACS 5.0 patch:

    Issue the following command from the patch CSA in EXEC mode to install the fix for the ACS:

    Install patch ACS patch-name. tar.GPG repository repository-name

    Here is my result:

    / Admin # acs patch install repository 5-0-0-21 - 9.tar.gpg mytftp
    chmod: cannot access at the "* .sh ': no such file or directory".
    Error: Could not open the patch 5-0-0-21 - 9.tar.gpg

    It download the patch via TFTP ok, but cannot install it.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you

    There are problems in 5.0 with using tftp for file transfers that exceed 32 MB. There may be problems with the ftp servers that exceed this limit.

    I recommend to start using the alternative repository type. For example, ftp or a local repository on the server.

  • Upgrade to Sierra: restart upgrade procedure (free space)


    today I tried to upgrade El Capitan in Sierra, after restarting the installation said that there is not enough free space left. Therefore, I changed the boot volume on my system disk and initialized in El Capitan.

    How the upgrade process restarted after deleting old files?

    The spectacle of the App Store of only Sierra is loaded.

    see you soon


    Hello gregor gregor gregor.

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. It's my understanding you are needing help with upgrading to Sierra, as the Mac App Store gives more the possibility to download. I want to assure you that you can upgrade and enjoy Sierra successfully.

    If you quit the Installer do not click on continue, you can open it later in your Applications, Launchpad or Spotlight folder. Looking for a file named Install macOS Sierra. During the installation, your Mac may restart several times. It performs then a few initial configuration in the background tasks. Although these tasks are ongoing activities such as the use of Spotlight or Mail may not seem as fast as they were before.

  • Why can't the upgrade procedure be re-scheduled to warn users BEFORE they upgrade they will lose the additional features they have relied on for years? This isn't a trivial matter - read the other "complaints"!

    For the second time in my experience, an update of Firefox led to a lost feature where the modules are considered incompatible. It is UNACCEPTABLE that the user is not warned prior to this loss. It is immaterial that the Add-ons are third parties: If Firefox can 'discover' the problem AFTER the upgrade, it can warn us BEFORE the upgrade. I love Firefox, but you've already lost one of my sons as a user because of what it sees as a casual disregard for the personal choices of the users. Give us the ability to customize Firefox. Fantastic! Can paralyse us when we innocently do a upgrade. How much more of your user base that you want to lose?

    As a user of long date of Firefox (and Netscape), I tend to agree with you that some type of compatibility check must be done before the real Firefox takes place version upgrade. I never install a new version of Firefox on my previous version. I admit that I'm a more experienced user and generally start to use new versions of Firefox during the beta test period and install the beta version, with a separate profile required, to test the new product and test the compatibility of the add-on. I know that's not possible or convenient for all users.

    The following extension can save you some frustration.

    • It adds an option "Empty list" on the screen Add on
    • It will show compatible Mozilla products and versions for each Extension.
      • I do not believe that the Extensions installed from other sites that the site Mozilla Add - ons are included; you will need to check the site from which you downloaded the Extension or with the developer of the Extension for the updating of the plans for the new version of Firefox.
    • I installed it and I use it as a first step before contacting the developers Extension and or visit their home/forums pages looking for beta versions of their Extensions for new versions of Firefox.
    • This will help you if you do not allow automatic updates of Firefox; most versions of news (e.g., Firefox 3.x of Firefox 4). See:

    (1) check if your hardware supported vSphere 4.1

    (2) suggest upgrade to ESXi instead of ESX

    (3) make sure that you update your vCenter server first and vCetner 4.1 will run only x 64-bit Windows systems

    (4) for the stand-alone version you have separated RAID for ESX and store data if so you can just format the drive on which ESX is installed

    (5) for the site with SAN storage disconnect from host to storage and re - join

    Make sure that the upgrade guide is reviewed

  • How much time it take the firmware upgrade procedure?


    I ReadyNas 204 and I'm away from the SIN it free and I wanted to install the 6.5.0 version of the firmware via the admin interface... I'm not sure how much time should I take, it is already underway for 40 minutes... is this normal?

    Sorry for the dummy question!

    Thank you

    Problem is solved. Sent someone back home to check and it seemed that the NAS could not obtain an IP address after you restart. Disconnect the RJ-45 and connected back solved the problem. NAS is back online, but would it be a bug in 6.5.0 or is it just with my camera? Nothing in the newspapers that I could see... just could not obtain an IP address...

    the NAS drive is configured with a static IPv4 address and IPv6 is disabled. If that helps.
