[Tutorial] How to patch your Clearpass

[ Edited ]

Hello everyone i have decided to do a tutorial on how to do this.

Guess you guys have seem the patches on the support site these ones:

The interesting thig is that i have not patched the last one so i will go step by step patching that one.

 

Okay lets start

First we will download the file in my case i need to download clearpass 6.1.1 patch which have to be installed after installing the cummulative patch which i already did...

 

You can see what patches you already installed by clicking down on the version here:

version.png

 

After you click it you will see something like this:

 

patches2.PNG

 

Those are the patches i got installed, and as you see i got the cummulative installed already there

 

Okay now.. lets go to the console and then lets go to the admnistration--->Agent & Software updates--->Software updates


In there click import  update here:

import update.png

 

And upload the file.. in my case ill upload the file i just downloaded which is the patch im missing.

 

After you import it you will see its processing and you will need to wait a few seconds or a min depending ont he file size...

After that you will see that it would be like nothing happened! but now the file is on the clearpass server and you need to run the update via cli....

Now you can ssh it and log in

On the Cli you will run this command

 

system update –i  <file name>

 

Here is the example as im updating it now:

 

system update –i CPPM-x86_64-20130611-clearpass-updates-patch.bin 

Like thisupdating1.PNG

 

Now in some updates it will tell you that you need to reboot! you have to read whats the output and it will tell you if you need to reboot or not... in my case i dont need to.   Also there are other cases that you will loose the conectivity to the web access of the administration which it will tell you that that you need to wait for a while...

 

After installing like i did you can check that its succesfully installed on the GUI again .

Now you see the patch that is installed and well its installed 6-16-2013 which is today

 

And now we are done.

 

Cheers

Carlos

Just a quick update....

The latest OVF images that were posted just recently should already include the admin patch.
Thank You,

Re: [Tutorial] How to patch your Clearpass

Hi there

Quick question - must patches be installed via the CLI or can they be installed via the GUI.

I have a patch available under the Software Updates Tab with a nice big INSTALL button next to it.

Just wanting to see if there are any differences to watch out for.

Cheers

You can install the patches from the GUI as well.
