Authentication Manager 8.2 SP1 Patching

Jump to solution

I'm currently on 8.2.1.2.0.  I noticed there is web-tier patch 2 available.  I don't have any instances of web-tier created on my authentication server.  Should I bother running the web-tier patches?

No need for web tier 'anything' if you don't have a web tier running.

 

If you do have a Web Tier....Web Tiers are patched by one, or another method. Push, or reinstall.

 

a) If the patch is a minor adjustment, you can typically patch the primary RSA server, then go to the operations console and 'update Web Tier' to push the changes out to the Web Tier.

 

b) If a more major component on a Web Tier is being patched, we release a separate 'Web Tier patch' but it actually is a full Web Tier installation package. Patch primary system first (and replicas) then uninstall the Web Tier, and reinstall with the newest Web Tier update package.

Thanks for the help. I wasn’t sure. Our authentication server hasn’t been patched at all since we got 8.2 SP1 in January 2018.
