    Patch Management Update 2 - duplicate files

    I have seen a strange issue on SLES servers with ZCM 11.1.

    When applying "Patch Management Update 2" is says:

    "2. Copy the relevant (x86 or x64 version) analyze.exe, remediate.exe,
    MCEScan.exe"

    But thats not correct - on Linux serves "MCEScan.exe" is named
    "mcescan.exe". This will create a duplicate set of mcesan.exe files,
    as Linux is case sensitive.

    My question is... what is the correct name? As Linux IS case
    sensitive, this is important. Should I rename the file from the patch?

    Regards
    Allan

    Now I'm confused.

    The Patch notes say:
    "the new files will be incorporated into the PatchAgents bundles (ZCC
    > Bundles > ZPM > PatchAgents"


    But upon inspecting ie. the x64 bundle, it has BOTH files listed in
    two different actions. They are taken from
    "/var/opt/novell/zenworks/content-repo/tmp/zpm/plp".
    not "/opt/novell/zenworks/zpm/agents/windows/x64"

    But that folder is empty on my systems.

    Also, clicking the link crashes the ZCC.


    Regards
    Allan

    Allan,

    OK, I am responsible for posting this patch, so any problems are my
    responsibility Sorry about the filename, that's how Lumension sent
    it to me and I honestly just didn't notice, since it's the same
    physical file that's used for both Windows and Linux servers, I will
    amend the readme now. The paths shown in the patch are not for
    "consumer use" if I can put it that way, it's just the way it comes out
    from the subscription process. Yes, I know about the link, and I
    reported that, it's been fixed for 11.2.

    I think there's more to it than this.
    Both spellings are present in the Agent bundle, and I have no
    explanation for this.
    On top of that, I simply don't get the remediate.exe out on the
    workstations after this patch.

    But I have an SR running on this, and I'll report back here if
    anything interresting comes to light.

    Thanks Shaun.

    Regards
    Allan

    if the files both exist, it will create actions for both - it will
    deliver all and any files it finds in that directory, when the DAU is
    rebuilt
