|Applies To||RSA Product Set: Security Analytics|
RSA Product/Service Type: Security Analytics Server
RSA Version/Condition: 10.3.x, 10.4.x
O/S Version: EL6
|Issue||When attempting to upgrade to a version that is not the newest release and inadvertently hitting the 'Synchronize' button, the RPMs from the current version are downloaded.|
The yum check-update command lists the latest version updates, even though the download package for another version was manually downloaded in order to be applied to the appliances.
Example: The Updates repository in the Security Analytics UI shows all 10.3.4 RPM files, but when issuing the yum check-update command it shows 10.4 files.
A reset of the Security Analytics repository may also be necessary in version 10.4.x in special circumstances, such as to remove the 2014 Q4 Security Patch from the repository based on the SecurCare Online advisories entitled RSA Security Analytics Q4 Security Patch Issues and Updates for two issues identified with the Security Analytics Q4 2014 Security Patch.
If upgrading from version 10.3.x to Security Analytics 10.4.0.2 or 10.4.1 and the Q4 2014 Security Patch has already been applied, the repository should NOT be recreated with the steps below.
If the repository has already been cleared, follow the instructions in the the article entitled How to upgrade to RSA Security Analytics 10.4.0.2 or 10.4.1 from 10.3.x when the Q4 2014 Security Patch is already installed to resolve the issue.
|Tasks||This article provides instructions for resetting the Security Analytics repository.|
|Resolution||The steps below can be performed to reset the repository data on the RSA Security Analytics server.|
|Notes||If upgrading to a Security Analytics 10.3 service pack and the yum utility must be used to perform the update as opposed to the Security Analytics UI, do not perform steps 5 and 6 in the above instructions,and instead follow the additional steps below.|
