This Appliance Updater enables customers to update their RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle hardware appliances with the latest database and operating system patches.  Customers with soft appliance deployments can update their environment with the latest database updates, if leveraging the RSA provided database.


Patching the operating system and database components is integral to the security of the RSA environment.  To ensure that appliance and soft appliance installations maintain the most up-to-date patches for these components, RSA provides the Appliance Updater, which bundles a certified patch set for the operating system (SUSE or Red Hat) and the local Oracle database.  Downloading and running the latest appliance updater closes vulnerabilities and bugs addressed by the patches.  The Appliance Updater does not patch the RSA product itself.

Note: The Oracle and OS Appliance updaters are now packaged as separate updaters.  To install the OS and Oracle updates (if you need both for your deployment)  you’ll need to download  BOTH the OS and Oracle updaters and perform separate installations .  [Prior to the August 2018 release the OS and Oracle updates were published as a combined OS/Oracle updater.]
