IBM Security Identity Virtual Appliance Firmware Update Transfer Utility
The Security Identity Virtual Appliance allows update by two methods: USB and Firmware Update Utility.
This firmware transfer utility can be used by the following products:
- IBM Governance and Intelligence Virtual Appliance (IGIVA)
- IBM Security Identity Manager Virtual Appliance (ISIMVA)
The firmware transfer utility is also available for:
- IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager Virtual Appliance (ISPIMVA)
However, for ISPIMVA, follow the instructions provided by the link below.
This utility performs the same function as the virtual appliance's CLI transfer_firmware command for each product.
Note: This utility does not work on early versions of ISIMVA or ISPIMVA. This function is available on ISIM version 184.108.40.206 and higher and ISPIM version 2.0.1 fixpack 2 and higher.
Resolving the problem
For ISIMVA and IGIVA:
Copy the utility to a system where Java is already installed. Java version 1.7 is recommended. You can use the Java version 1.7 installed with many IBM products, such as WebSphere Application Server.
Copy the firmware update (pkg) file, obtained from IBM Fix Central, and a keystore (jks attached below) to the file system. Run the java command, as specified in the usage section below, to upload the pkg file.
java -jar FileUpload.jar <Hostname:PORT> <AdminId> <AdminPassword> <Truststore Filepath> <Truststore Password> <Absolute path to pkg file>
Note: Command syntax has changed from previous versions of FileUpload.jar.
java -jar FileUpload.jar isimva.ibm.com admin admin /work/temptrust.jks WebAS /Downloads/isimva_7.0.1.pkg
java -jar FileUpload.jar igiva.ibm.com:9443 admin admin /work/temptrust.jks WebAS /Downloads/igiva_5.2.pkg
Once the pkg file is transferred, use the appliance CLI to install the firmware.
ISIMVA 7.0.0.x: isim > firmware_update > install_firmware
ISIMVA 7.0.1.x: isim > upgrade > install
ISPIMVA 2.0.2: ispim > upgrade > install_firmware
IGIVA: igi > upgrade > install
