If you have configured an NFS share, a Windows shared directory, or a DVD/CD as an update location, then you can scan for product updates. Before you apply an update to an instance, you can review a list of available updates and a list of the updates that were applied. After you apply an update, Authentication Manager removes the update from the Available Updates section and moves it to the Update History section. If you want to apply an update through your local web browser, then you do not need to scan for updates.
After you scan for updates, the new list displays for 24 hours. Logging out of the Operations Console does not remove the list from the system cache. If you restart the Operations Console, download additional updates, or change the product update locations, you must perform another scan to see the most current list.
Note:If you are using a Windows share, RSA Authentication Manager 8.4 requires the SMBv2 or SMBv3 protocol. SMBv1 is no longer supported.
In the Operations Console, click Maintenance > Update & Rollback.
Click Scan for Updates. The system displays the progress of the scan on the Basic Status View tab. Detailed information displays on the Advanced Status View tab.
Click Done to return to the Update & Rollback page.
The Available Updates section displays the following information for each update:
Version. The version of the update. To see the current Authentication Manager version, see the top of the Update and Rollback page.
Reversible. Indicates whether you can roll back (undo) the update.
Automatic Appliance Reboot. Indicates whether Authentication Manager automatically restarts the appliance to apply the update. If the appliance restarts, you must perform another scan to see a current list of updates.
Automatic Operations Console Reboot. Indicates whether Authentication Manager automatically restarts the Operations Console to apply the update. If the Operations Console restarts, you must perform another scan to see a current list of updates.
Action. States whether the update is available to apply. Lists the minimum system requirement for the update.
In the Applied Updates section, click Download Detailed History Log for a complete update history.
The Applied Updates section displays the updates applied to the instance. This section includes the update version numbers, the time and date that each update was applied, and who applied the update.
