    ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    What is the trick to get this to work? I login to the appliance as zenadmin then choose Micro Focus Customer Center, enter in my email address and activation key, click register, but get an RPC Communication error; An error occurred while communicating with the server. Status code: 500 (The call failed on the server; see server log for details)
    Where do I find the server log for details?
    I could see where maybe it could be a communications issue, but it seems to see updates in the ZCC for available system updates?

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    I guess that was not my problem. The clock file does exist in /etc/sysconfig/
    I should mention that I work for a consortium of four small school districts and all four of the appliances are doing this. I looked at the suse_register log file as mentioned in that support document (7018662) and here is a few warnings lines of what it listed:

    I should mention that I also get Telemetry errors just about every time I log into the ZCC on these appliances, so there must be something I am missing for the communication setup on these? It is odd that it does see Available System Updates in the ZCC though, so that portion of communications is working to the outside world.

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    Looks as if the servers are running ZCM 17.0 w/o Update 1 applied.

    Update 2 is now available on download.novell.com as of this morning.
    (There is always an intentional delay of a few days before it appears in the ZCC.)

    I would recommend ensuring the ZCM code was current and then try and troubleshoot appliance updates.
    The majority of the Security and Stability fixes will come via ZCM updates not appliance OS updates since the OS itself is stripped so bare since it is an appliance.

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    That is why I am trying to get this working. Is there a better way to update this appliance to Update 1 or 2?

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    What you are trying to fix has nothing to do with upgrading to ZCM 2017 Update 1 or Update 2.
    The Online Appliance Upgrade section is to find and apply Linux Fixes to the bare bones Linux Appliance OS.
    It does not actually upgrade ZCM.

    Update 2 is now available for download on Novell Patch Finder....
    https://download.microfocus.com/Down...d=qLKrEhi8Y-Q~

    It should appear in the ZCC System Update tab as well in a few days.

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    Thanks for the clarification on what the online update does. The system update section in the ZCC is just for client and satellite server updates, correct? Thanks for your help!

    Re: ZCM 2017 appliance Online Update settings

    No, The System Update Section is for Primaries as well.

    The confusion may be was that in the past, MAJOR Version releases (Media Based) were not done via System Update but via Media.

    11.4.0 Upgrade - Used Media on Primaries
    11.4.1 Upgrade - Primaries upgraded via ZCC
    11.4.2 Upgrade - Primaries upgraded via ZCC
    11.4.3 Upgrade - Primaries upgraded via ZCC
    2017.0 Upgrade - Primaries upgraded via Media
    2017.1 Upgrade - Primaries upgraded via Media.....

    One thought I heard was that future media releases would only be for fresh server installs.
    If there was a "ZCM 2019" that was a media release, you ZCM 2017 servers could still use the ZCC to upgrade.
    However, we will have to see if that happens or not....
    I'm not sure when the next "Media" release will be.

    ZCM 2017 Update 3 due sometime in 1H 2018 is not expected to be media as far as I know.....
