RSA issues product updates periodically for RSA Authentication Manager in the form of patches and service packs. RSA recommends applying product updates as they become available to ensure that the deployment is secure and efficient. For each product update, RSA provides release notes that contain important information about applying the update. To avoid problems, you should read all of the information in the release notes before you apply the update.
You download product updates from RSA Link at . Updates are provided in the form of an ISO image. RSA recommends that you do not burn the ISO image to a physical DVD or CD. Instead, save the ISO image in a directory that is accessible to the deployment.
You use the Operations Console to apply product updates on each primary and replica instance. After you download a product update, you specify the location of the ISO image. You can apply an individual update through your local browser, or you can scan for stored updates in an NFS share, a Windows shared folder, or a DVD/CD. After scanning, you can select an individual update to apply.
Note: Apply updates to embedded third-party products only as part of RSA-delivered updates. For example, RSA provides the required updates to the virtual appliance and hardware appliance operating system.
If the deployment includes a web tier, you must update the web tier when you update the version of Authentication Manager. Authentication Manager displays an update button in the Operations Console for each web tier that is not up-to-date. For instructions, see Update the Web-Tier.
