How Clearpass performs online updates.

[ Edited ]

From Clearpass version 6.x, Updates (upgrade, patches, AntiVirus & AntiSpyware Updates, Windows Hotfixes updates, Endpoint profile Fingerprints) can be performed online. Clearpass need a valid subscription ID to perform the online updates.


Clearpass server need to be allowed to talk to "clearpass.arubanetworks.com/cppm" using HTTPs. We can also configure CPPM to use proxy to reach above url to perform the updates from Administration->Server Manager->Server Configuration->Server Parameters->Clearpass System services->HTTP proxy.


Below are the schedule configured to perform updates.


Clearpass communicates with update url for every hour to check new updates and updates automatically for AntiVirus & AntiSpyware Updates, Windows Hotfixes updates, Endpoint profile Fingerprints.


Clearpass communicates with update url daily @ 4 AM to check for new firmware updates and provides the option for administrator to install them from Administration->Agents and Software Updates->Software Updates page.


The detailed logs will written to /var/avenda/tips/log/tips-utils/extSync.log, /var/avenda/tips/log/tips-utils/downloadfirmwareupdates.log.
