This function is used to deploy a patch from a Management Server that is running MS Windows, UNIX or Linux to one or more HPE NonStop servers. To deploy a patch to servers running other operating systems please refer to the Deploy Patch Function topic.
To carry out this function, first ensure that the required patch file has been placed into the following folder path on the Sender server:
Once this has been done, the 'Transfer and Install NSK Patch' command is used to carry out the patch install on the specified Receiver servers in the network. The 'Transfer and Install Patch' command can be opened by clicking the Deploy NonStop Patch link on the File Transfer Display or alternatively it can be found in the following folder path of the Document Navigator of the Windows Client:
Knowledge → Common → Command Store
The Command prompt form needs to be completed with the following information:
- Which server or node groups is the patch to be deployed to? This is a comma separated list that can contain individual server names, node group names (prefixed with #) or a combination of both. E.g. \server1, #NonStopSystems\Platforms\All NonStop Systems
- The patch file name in the Server\Configuration folder of this Managing server.
- Nominate if the patch file installation requires a Prognosis restart. Enter Y (Yes) or N (No).
