Apache 2.2.x EOL & Radia hot fixes to upgrade to Apache 2.4

Apache foundation made an announcement in July 2016 that Apache webserver 2.2.x will have EOR (End Of Release) in June 2017 and EOL (End Of Life) in December 2017. Apache 2.2.x served our customers for the last 10 years right from 2005. Apache team foresees very minimum maintenance patches to be released between EOR and EOL and has asked all the users to move to version 2.4 as early as possible. 2.2.x will not receive any security updates from December 2017 onwards. You can learn more about this announcement here:

https://www.apachehaus.com/forum/index.php?topic=1365.0

The Radia product will ensure that customers are safe with this transition. We’ll provide hotfixes for the following supported Radia versions so that there is enough time to conveniently move from Apache 2.2.x to 2.4:

  • Radia 8.1
  • Radia 9.0
  • Radia 9.1
  • Radia 9.2
  • Radia 10.0

The schedule for each of these hot fixes will be announced later, but all of them will be available by May 2017. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Patch Tuesday - cancelled this month due to unknown problems

I just received this information from one of our clients.  It appears that Microsoft will not release any patches this month due to unknown problems with some/all of the patches. Please see below for more information.  

 

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msrc/

 

Month: February 2017

February 2017 security update release

Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today. After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates….

Radia 9.2 - Real-time Bandwidth Management

Is anyone making use of the RTBWMGMT setting in COP?  I am looking for any experience using this.  Previous iterations of bandwidth throttling in Radia were not very successful but it was indicated that this one works better.  We did some testing and confirmed that it will in fact work effectively in our lab, we created some very slow connections and observed successful throttling.

Is anyone using this? and if so, what settings did you find effective. (default out of box is 40% with 15 second polling interval)

Follow up: Custom Office patching via Radia brought up at the forums.

 The custom Office bulletins mentioned at the forums are non-Security Office updates that are NOT available via Radia. While some Office updates are available most are not and require custom bulletins. Before creating custom bulletins we first search Accelerite's non-Security webpage to make sure the bulletins are not available for acquisition by default.

 

 Over the past several years the custom bulletin portfolio between Dignity Health and Evergreen Systems has grown to around 300 custom Radia bulletins and continues to grow monthly. Using custom bulletins greatly increases ROI by expanding the content that can be managed by Radia Patch Manager, utilization of the built in compliance reports, and decreasing the amount of time it takes to package content.

 

 Some of our custom bulletins can be acquired by Radia by default (FLASH PLAYER, ADOBE READER, JRE, etc.), but may be prohibitive.and require some tailoring to meet the needs of individual clients.

 

 Our goal at Evergreen Systems is to make Radia the best third party patching tool on the market and in support of that goal we offer unlimited custom bulletin support to all our support customers. 

 

See below for partial list of the custom bulletin portfolio.

 

 As an example, KB3085607 is a junk email update and not available via Radia non-security bulletins or MUC bulletins.

Accelerite User Summit
Questions and comments from the Windows 10 Discussion at Accelerite User Summit 2017

The Windows 10 session at the Accelerite User Summit sparked a lot of questions. We've put a brief summary of the questions and answers from the session. We'd love to get some feedback on this topic from the wider Radia user team:

1. Will there be any change in the policy entitlements with the new MSFT patching?

No, the entitlement process remains the same

2. Upgrading Radia 9.x to 10.x is painful, are there any improvements done in migration process.Acc?

We are working to remove the pain points after 10.cp1, the current approach is once the customer is on Radia 10. The upgrades will be done as updates to the environment.

3. Custom xml process - Is acclerite still going to support office patches and non-security patches or do they need to request as an on need basis?

A we are in the streamlining the process to reduce time iand providing the custom xmls faster.

4. Roll back option for patches  specially for cumulative patches?

Currently we cant rollback individual patches in a cumulative patch. And Accelerite will work it as an enhancement.

5. is there an auto entitlement after acquiring pactches as there are 100s of patches and is time consuming to entitle them.

Will work as an enhancement.

6. Supercedence - During acquisition when we mark the supercedence option it should delete the superceded patches after the timelimit expires?

Accelerite will work this as an enhancement.

Set software service to leave compressed resources in place after installation

What Service\Package setting controls whether the client deletes the compressed resources after the package installation is completed. (not the AIP, I mean the LIB\DATA resources).  I thought it was possible to configure these to remain in place but I can't seem to find the setting.  (we have 9.2 if it makes a diff)

RCA Agent Deployment

 

In 7.8, when deploying the client agent from the Portal we had the capability to select a Profile (Agent Media install) and to select an Initialization file  (install.ini).

 

I'm looking in 10.0 and I dont see the same funcitonality with deploying an Agent.

 

 Is there something that I can enable in 10.0 to give me the drop down for selecting different install.ini when deploying from the Portal.

Radia Patch Manager extended third party patching is not impacted by Microsoft's new cumulative patching roll-ups

 A quick reminder that our custom Radia Patch Management solutions are not impacted by Microsoft's decision to limit OS patching to roll-ups instead of individual bulletins/kb's.  As long as the modules are available for manual download we can develop a custom Radia Patch Management solution based on individual requirements, including any individual kb's/patches released by Microsoft in the future.

Community question about OS Zstops

Our group is at a bit of a stalemate when it comes to adding OS level Zstops to all CSDB services.

We currently support over 800 applications and when a new OS comes out we can spend months testing all our applications on the new OS platform.  Unfortunately, and as an example; if the service currently has a WIN7 zstop on it we can’t quickly test the applications on WIN10. It’s a long process carefully adjusting Zstops on every application so they can even be tested. (We have to do this by exporting the .xpi files and opening them in notepad, changing the Zstop, and reimporting back into the system.) That way it doesn’t modify the date and time stamp of the service and force a reinstall of the software throughout the environment.  As another example, if the application ends up working on WIN10 we would typically add the new OS Zstop to the service and will be faced with the same problem later when WIN12 comes out. 

That means that our only other solution is to NOT add an OS Zstop at all unless the software just won’t work on a particular OS.  We’ve gone through many discussions on the pros and cons of adding the OS level Zstop to all software. The biggest pro of adding the OS Zstops is to prevent major catastrophes like blue screening every machine that has a particular software on a new OS. The major con of the OS Zstop is that it can take months of testing on the new OS. With hundreds of supported applications, it becomes a huge undertaking.   

I’m curious what other companies are doing and if they face the same pain points that we go through when a new OS enters the picture? Maybe there is some solution we aren’t even considering?

How to add attribute to CLIENT.SETTINGS SUPLONGF attribute using CSDB editor

L.S.,

I think I have done it once using a GUI (CSDB Editor?), but cannot remember how I did it.

From the Readme of QCCR1C50138:

 
1. Add a new attribute SUPLONGF in CLIENT.SETTINGS class.
2. Set the length of SUPLONGF attribute is 1 and value is Y/N.

I can navigate to PRIMARY / CLIENT / SETTINGS / _BASE_INSTANCE_ and there it stops. How do I add this attribute?

Publishing basics

1. Can I/How do I, publish files that are not resident on the computer I'm logged into?  It seems mapped drives do not appear in the Publisher drop-down, only local drives. 

2. When I publish a file for deployment, how do I specify the delivery location desired on the client?  (Example: I publish the source file from my machine in c:temp\package\, I wish to have radia deploy the published package to the clients c:\dropzone\ folder.

Scripted method to change upstream servers

We are in the inital phases of defining a new infrastuctrrue (Hardware Upgrade) which will require the site Satellite Full stream servers to be re-directed to an new upstream server. I'm wondering if any one has a script to do this? Would save me some time.

C drive capture to D drive

I am attempting to create a solution in which I remotely tell a system to capture an image of the C drive and store it to D partition. Then if the C becomes corrupt I can have someone manually load the image from D back over C using a imagex disk. Has anyone else been able to accomplish this or something similar? Personality Backup and Restore, along with capturing the image and pulling it back to the server will not suffice as we have technicians out in the field who will need to access the image(backup) on demand.

Patch deployment best practice

Hello, we are starting use Radia to deploy Microsoft patches, we have a highly remote environment and always connected through WWAN. My question is what is best practices for patching highly mobile devices, and if you use a VPN application how do you split the connection so it automatically downloads patches using WIFI once the computer connects once in house.

Radia 7.8 to 9.2 CSDB Migration

 

I’m migrating a CSDB to 9.2 and in the migration guides best practices, for the audit domain, it states to migrate the individual services. Based on this, I’m assuming it’s an export for each zservice in the audit domain to produce the instance, class and resource file.   In another part of the migrate guide, it states to export all resources for the CSDB, again I’m assuming a single resource file for all resources in the CSDB. The question is, if the audit domain is by service which produces a xpi, xpr, xpc won’t this over write the schema changes when I import it.

panelpgm & radconsw
through radia 7.9 I used a batch file that called radconsw with an .ext file to select which radia manager I would connect to with radxplor. The ext file had been created in2001 with a radia paint program that now appears to be replaced by panelpgm. the combination of radconsw and the ext file made a change to the zmaster.zipaddr value on the machine it was run on, then launched radxplore to initiate the connecteion the the csdb editor. this is no longer functioning with the client upgraded to 9.2. are there new tools that replace what was working? is there a better method for selecting among several managers when launching the scdb editor?

Next day I created a "Technology" sub OU under my "Domain" OU to keep things in order and did the same notifies, but the notifies failed. Just for the heck of it I moved the object back into the original OU since there it was succeeding, and the notifies didnt fail. Can anyone give some insight as to why this would be happening? I wouldnt think it would matter which container you have the computer object in. Thanks in advance.

Enterprise Console Error
When I launch the enterprise console I get a "The server is temporarily unable to service your request.Please try after sometime" error. How can I go about fixing this or what logs should I look into to remediate this error?
