Critical CPM Automatic Update Steps Required for Automatic Update Functionality in TEM 8.x Deployment Upgrades .

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What Critical Steps are Required for Automatic CPM Automatic Update Functionality of 8.x Deployment Upgrades in Tivoli Endpoint Manager?

Answer

To ensure compatibility with 8.0 deployments, CPM server components must be upgraded and configured immediately following the upgrade of the TEM server. This is critical because failure to do so will result in a loss of automatic update functionality.

After upgrading your TEM server to 8.x, take the following steps:

  1. Run Task 55: Core Protection Module - Upgrade Server Components on your server.
  2. Re-run the CPM Automatic Update Setup script (Here)
Run Task 55: Core Protection Module - Upgrade Server Components This task will update the PropagateFiles.exe and TrendMirrorScript.exe utilities for 8.0 compatibility. After running the task, PropagateFiles.exe will be placed the %ProgramFiles\BigFix Enterprise\BES Server directory. This is a change from 7.2 deployments, where PropagateFiles.exe resides in the %ProgramFiles%\BigFix Enterprise\TrendMirrorScript directory.

Re-run the CPM Automatic Update Setup script After running Task 55, you must re-run the CPM Automatic Update Setup script to reconfigure PropagateFiles.exe and ensure that the custom site and publisher authorization files are accessible to the PropagateFiles.exe utility. For information on how to run the setup script, please see CPM Automatic Updates - Running the CPM Automatic Update Setup script ( Here)).
